The Baltimore Ravens cannot seem to find health. Every week they add a new name to the injury list. However, this week the team is starting to see a few names come off. While they should get a few key performers back, there are some Ravens who may still be sitting when the team takes on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Who is most likely another week away from returning to the lineup?

3. Odafe Oweh will continue to miss time for the Baltimore Ravens

Odafe Oweh looked like he was going to have a great season after one week. However, in week two, it only took 14 snaps until he was on the sidelines with an ankle injury. This stung because things were trending up for him, and since then, he has missed the last two games.

Oweh has not practiced all week, and even if he practiced Friday you would have to assume that it would be in a limited fashion, and Friday is typically not the hardest week. So, all signs point to him missing this week.

That is unfortunate because the team could use some edge rusher help. They placed David Ojabo on the IR and had to sign Kyle Van Noy, who played 23 snaps about a three days after signing. He is surely conditioned, but how much work can he put in this week? The Ravens will need another big snap count game from Tavius Robinson against the Steelers.

As for Oweh, even if he does not play this week, a return to practice Friday would definitely be a great sign for week six. If not, Oweh will need to string together multiple full practices before the team is comfortable getting him back out there.
