3. Is this how the Baltimore Ravens cornerback shuffle will continue?

The Baltimore Ravens brought back Marlon Humphrey after he missed the first four weeks with a foot injury. It was going to be interesting to see how the team broke down cornerback snaps because there had already been a rotation going.

Brandon Stephens had been playing full-time, and then the opposite side saw Rock Ya-Sin and Ronald Darby splitting work. For the most part, Darby would start and get the majority of the snaps, but the team would work Ya-Sin into the game. Both Ya-Sin and Darby are coming back from injuries so the split made sense.

On Sunday, Stephens kept his every snap role, a testament to what the team thinks of his play this month. Then, the Ravens gave Marlon Humphrey about 55% of the snaps, and they gave Ronald Darby about 45% of the snaps. The split was 37 to 29 in raw snap totals.

Everyone had their issues with George Pickens in this game; it was just Humphrey who lost to him at the very end. So, the question is, does this rotation continue? There will be a point when Humphrey becomes an every-snap player. Is that next week?

Does Stephens lose his every snap role, or does Darby join Ya-Sin on the bench?
