2. Will bad injury news ever stop coming?
Head Coach John Harbaugh was the only member of the Ravens coaching staff scheduled to speak to reporters after practice and that's precisely what he did, touching on pretty much every topic of interest these days.
As expected, those attending Day 15 and allowed to ask Harbaugh questions presented him with more than a few chances to deal new nuggets of information to them, and the truth is that the news that came out of Harbaugh's mouth wasn't entirely encouraging.
Harbaugh said that the trio of backup CB Jalyn Armour-Davis ("real close"), starting CB2 Rock Ya-Sin ("not quite as close but still close"), and incumbent nickel Arthur Maulet ("real close, same category") are expected back practicing and playing soon.
One player that won't be reappearing any time soon is CB Damarion "Pepe" Williams, who coach Harbaugh revealed has undergone surgery of late and will be out until "October, maybe, something like that."
The coach made clear that Williams' injury "is not a season-ender," explaining that "the screw in [William's ankle], it caused the bone to crack a little bit and that’s something that does happen sometimes."
Finally, Harbaugh said that linebacker Tyus Bowser ("I know he will be back for the season") should be available in September ahead of Week 1 and that the coaches are just "being cautious." He added that Bowser's knee "looked the best it's looked" on Monday.
The Ravens offense also endured some bumps and bruises on Saturday, with James Proche and Tyler Huntley leaving the game banged-up a bit. Harbaugh revealed that Proche suffered "a hip contusion" while Huntley "has a minor hamstring tweak." None of those two injuries seem major.
