10. The injuries won't ever stop happening, will they?
The football gods just want to have some fun and screw around Baltimore, right? Come on!
The Ravens ruled out five starters ahead of Week 4. The Ravens also deactivated Marcus Williams right before kick-off. The Ravens, of course, already had a bunch of players on IR before Sunday.
The injury bill basically comes down to the Ravens starting running back, cornerback, safety, two outside linebackers (plus the main backup), offensive tackle, and two wide receivers (plus the WR6 and special-teams member). Not bad! And I'm forgetting a bunch of people most probably.
Then, on Sunday, the Ravens lost three more players to still-unknown periods of time, although head coach John Harbaugh should provide an update later on Monday.
Safety Daryl Worley started in place of Marcus Williams and suffered a shoulder injury before halftime. Offensive tackle Morgan Moses injured his shoulder in the second quarter. Cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis suffered a hamstring injury.
There was also an injury to Arthur Maulet when he seemingly suffered a concussion and was forced out of the game, but he is good and should avoid missing any game going forward.
Still, this team's injury luck is just not there, never there, not at all, not even the tiniest of drops. All hope is not lost, because at some point this will have to stop.
Also, at some point, people will start getting back to the field and boosting both the offensive and defensive units, which have already played impressively even while ravaged by injuries.
Speaking of injuries and as a final note, we also feel bad about the Cleveland Browns Stadium. If low attendance and folks exiting venues can be considered injuries to the pride of an NFL franchise, then the Browns suffered a torn ACL and a torn MCL yesterday.
Sad Elves fanatics were mad. Cannot blame them.
