Judging by how Sunday's season opener finished, with the Baltimore Ravens beating the lowly Houston Texans 25-9 without much trouble, you would have thought this would be a nice and calm week around The Castle. And you'd have been very wrong.

The victory came, and a win is a win. The problem, of course, was the many injuries impacting the already-banged-up roster of the Ravens entering the season.

Mark Andrews and Marlon Humphrey were ruled out for Sunday, and they were joined on the sidelines by as many as four starters (if not more) through Week 1's outing with those injuries coming at wildly diverging impact levels.

The situation got so bad that it forced Head Coach John Harbaugh to held a press conference on Monday in order to clarify everything a bit and give some timelines.

Things got so out of hand on Tuesday, that the Ravens signed two players, released one, promoted a member of the Practice Squad, and placed one damaged body on Injured Reserve, the franchise announced yesterday.

Here is the breakdown of the five moves made by the Ravens on Tuesday leading up to a delightful clash against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2 come Sunday. We're following the logical order in which they were made, so every player would follow and fill the gap open by another one.
