The Ravens won’t have Ronnie Stanley or James Hurst playing tonight. Marshal Yanda hasn’t played yet this preseason and Yanda will probably just wait for the regular season to get going. The Ravens have to at least consider not playing Joe Flacco and Alex Collins.
Hayden Hurst suffered a stress fracture in his foot and is out for 3-4 weeks. This gives players like Maxx Williams and Darren Waller a chance to show they belong on the 53 man roster.
Tim Williams has been one of the top standouts on defense. Williams has notched two sacks and a forced fumble in the preseason and looks like a new player this year.
Ryan Tannehill has been efficient for the Dolphins going 18-23 for 132 yards in preseason play. The Dolphins passing game has been lackluster though. Tannehill goes into the game averaging just 5.7 yards per attempt. Bryce Petty is the only Dolphins quarterback to average over eight yards per pass.
The Ravens run defense is in for a test. Kenyon Barner leads the Dolphins in rushing and is averaging over seven yards per carry.
The Ravens and Dolphins will give us plenty to talk about. Be sure to stay locked into Ebony Bird for everything you need to know about the purple and black.
