The Baltimore Ravens might have lost their Week 10 game but they can consider themselves lucky not to have lost more than that.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Ravens starting cornerback Marlon Humphrey has avoided a season-ending injury.

Sources told Rapoport "Marlon Humphrey suffered a lower calf strain, not an Achilles strain." That is what the NFL insider reported on Monday afternoon ahead of the initial injury report to be released by the Ravens later today.

"That's good news," wrote Rapoport, adding "He's considered day-to-day."

The problem now, of course, is trying to brining him back for the next game... which happens to be scheduled for Thursday on a short week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

According to Rapoport, Humphrey's status for TNF is "up in the air," as he acknowledges it'd need a "quick turnaround."

Humphrey, a key member of the Ravens defense and the secondary unit in particular, suffered the non-contact injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns, as captured here.

The Pro Bowl cornerback lost all power, went down to the ground, and instantly grabbed his right lower leg after falling making more than one, two, and a thousand folks watching live fearing the worst.

Coach John Harbaugh didn't really provide an update after the game, stating, "I don't have any updates right now," although an official injury report should be announced later today ahead of the Thursday Night Football matchup against the Bengals in the first day of "practice."

On top of losing Humphrey, Baltimore also saw starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley exit the game in the fourth quarter due to a knee injury, although the extent of the injury is unknown at the time of this writing.

Additionally, right guard Kevin Zeitler left the field with a limp, and rookie linebacker Trenton Simpson was ruled out due to a concussion evaluation, most probably ruling him out for Thursday.
