The Baltimore Ravens trudged to a hard-fought victory over the Carolina Panthers in Week 11, but they didn’t come out completely unscathed.
During the game, Kyle Hamilton and Ronnie Stanley both fell prey to injuries, with Hamilton suffering an apparent knee injury in the third quarter and Stanley possibly re-injuring his left ankle in the same quarter.
With roughly four minutes left in the third quarter, Lamar Jackson got sacked and he inadvertently rolled into the back of Stanley’s ankle; Stanley was able to walk to the locker room but did not return to the game. Hamilton was also ruled out.
Head coach John Harbaugh declined to give any updates on either player’s health status after the game, though Lamar Jackson did have something to say about Stanley.
Jackson reportedly went into the locker room to check on his All-Pro left tackle, and Stanley told him “he’s pretty good.” He also told Jackson not to fall on him again, which Jackson will no doubt keep in mind for the rest of the season.

Ravens fans gasped in horror as they saw Stanley go down, immediately fearing the worst. Stanley hurt his ankle back in 2020 and has since experienced a rollercoaster of a recovery period, missing the majority of the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
He was slowly eased back to starting snaps in 2022, and other than being on the unfortunate end of Jackson’s tumble, Stanley has stayed healthy and even returned to elite form.
As for Kyle Hamilton, the 14th pick of the 2022 draft limped off with a knee injury, the severity of which is not yet known. In Hamilton’s place, Brandon Stephens could be called up for more safety snaps, and Marcus Williams seems on track to return soon if needed.
Baltimore will likely provide more clarity about Stanley’s and Hamilton’s respective injuries later this week.
