Loser: EDGE Tyus Bowser

The veteran Bowser has not practiced through the summer, and he also missed all three preseason games. Ultimately, the Ravens decided to keep him in their NFI list, which means he will start the season on the shelves and forced to miss the first four weeks of play.

Bowser was never in danger of falling off the 53-man roster as an active member of the Flock, of course, but missing out on the initial squad means that even if he is fit and recovered before the first month of the regular season is over, he will still need to sit out one or two games until we hit Week 5.

As a veteran of the NFL and an important member of Baltimore's defensive unit, Bowser shouldn't lose any relevance even spending a few time out of the field.

That said, it's rather possible that a supernatural talent such as Clowney ends up showing his game enough through the first four weeks that, once Bowser is back, the latter finds himself on the outside of the rotation looking in.
