The Ravens can't catch a break. After navigating an endless string of injuries ravaging the roster up and down and left to right, Baltimore finally succumbed to them and lost an overtime game to the Colts last Sunday.
Heading into Week 3, the Ravens (2-1) were without five starters on the offensive side of the ball including all lines of the unit (WR Odell Beckham, OLs Tyler Linderbaum and Ronnie Stanley, and RBs Justice Hill and J.K Dobbins).
They also missed five starters on defense including CBs Marlon Humphrey and Ar'Darius Washington, OLB Odafe Oweh, OLB Tyus Bowser, and S Marcus Williams.
Then, Sunday came and multiple bodies went down injured throughout the outing, including the five new additions to the injury bill as John Harbaugh confirmed on Monday.
The Fantastic Five: RB Gus Edwards (concussion), OLB David Ojabo (ankle), WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring), S Geno Stone (ribs), and WR Tylan Wallace (hamstring) who was already placed on IR with that announcement coming even before Harbaugh's press conference on Monday.
Cordell Woodland asked Harbaugh if all of the injuries are becoming too much to bear at this point, to which the head coach answered "We don't feel like it's too much to bear."
Harbaugh explained that "We have guys that can get the job done," although he acknowledged the situation is "definitely relevant" and "definitely something we're contending with."
Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, hopeful "guys are coming back" soon
In a hopeful statement, Harbaugh let slip that "guys are coming back," but he also warned that "all of them aren’t coming back right now."
Asked about particular players injured on Sunday, Harbaugh said that Ojabo (ankle) is "being evaluated."
Harbaugh didn't reveal much more than that, simply saying that "it's just Monday" when asked about Stone's rib injury and Wallace's hamstring problem forcing him into a placement on IR.
The Ravens will release their first official injury report on Wednesday after practicing for their upcoming on-the-road game against fellow AFC North foe Cleveland.
The Browns defeated the Tennessee Titans 27-3 on Sunday and also boast a 2-1 record, tied with Baltimore for the divisional lead.
