1. Is Trenton Simpson ready for his Baltimore Ravens debut?
Trenton Simpson has returned to practice this week. The Baltimore Ravens did not have many draft picks, and while Zay Flowers has played in the preseason, he is getting close to starter treatment. So, with Simpson out, there has been little to discuss with the big-name rookies.
Now that Simpson is back, the Ravens have to get him on the field and see what he can do. He was behind Del'Shawn Phillips on the initial depth chart. Will that continue? Or will he start next to Malik Harrison this week? More than that, what is his role on special teams? If he is not starting due to Patrick Queen and Roquan Smith, then he has to get a role on special teams.
His debut will be worth watching. It will also be interesting to see how it impacts Phillips, who has done everything you can ask to earn a roster spot this season. Does it push him down or even off the 53-man roster? There will be plenty to watch in the linebacker room on Monday night.
