2. Can the Baltimore Ravens get a full game from Ronald Darby?

The Baltimore Ravens are hoping to get Marlon Humphrey back this week, but we know that with John Harbaugh, that could mean that he is a few weeks away. If Humphrey does not play or if the Ravens need to lean on depth, they have to roll with Ronald Darby in a more expanded role. 

Darby has started five games for the Ravens but has never played a ful game. He played 90% of the snaps against Houston, but the played just 58%, 66%, 64%, and 44%. On Thursday, he played 51% in his return to the lineup.

The Ravens have injury issues, and Darby is coming off of an ACL injury, so it makes sense that they do not want to over-push him. However, he is their best coverage cornerback. Rock Ya-Sin has given up more touchdowns, big plays, and penalties. Jalyn Armour-Davis went to play mainly because the Bengals had Jake Browning. Do the Ravens trust him against Justin Herbert? If the Ravens are without Marlon Humphrey, they should just stick with Darby across from Brandon Stephens.
