7. What does the Baltimore Ravens safety depth chart look like?
The Baltimore Ravens have had to make a lot of shuffling in their safety room. It left a lot of question marks. First, Brandon Stephens and Ar'Darius Washington are officially cornerbacks, which opens up two spots. Jaquan Amos got hurt in the preseason opener and may miss week two.
So, with Marcus Williams and Kyle Hamilton unlikely to play, the question is how will the safety depth chart shape up? Geno Stone just came back to practice. Will he be back in time to play? If so, he will get a chance to start this week.
DeAndre Houston-Carson just signed earlier this week. He probably had enough time to pick up the playbook, but how much work can he get? Then, there is Daryl Worley, who was the star of the night last week. When Amos went down, the depth was too thin, so Worley played the entire game.
Does he play that much again? If Stone or DHC cannot get on the field he will have to, but if they do get on the field, he may not have to prove himself as much this week. Also, the Ravens may want to get him a longer look on special teams.
With Amos out, Jeremy Lucien may get some work. The UDFA from Vanderbilt played a bit in the opener and may see a bigger role this week.
The Ravens may roll with Stone and Worley to start, and then Houston-Carson will relieve Stone. Houston-Carson could also play dime. After a bit, Lucien will step in for Worley, and they will finish with Houston-Carson and Lucien. There may only be four safeties who are active and ready to play, so they will all get their chances, if healthy.
