9. Jaquan Amos had a strong chance to push up the Baltimore Ravens depth chart

Jaquan Amos went from a potential riser to a faller about as fast as you can see it happen. Amos got the starting nod for the Ravens. Some of that is because Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams sat while Geno Stone was injured, and Brandon Stephens moved to cornerback.

So, the team did not have too many other options. Still, it is clear the Ravens wanted to get a look, Amos played 12 snaps, so the Ravens may have saw all that they needed to see, and that is not for the better.

Amos looked a bit lost playing that early into an NFL game. He issed a tackle, and was playing too frantically. He was benched quickly for Jeremy Lucien, who wound up playing a lot more than him. Jordan Swann did not play well, either, but they stuck with him a lot longer than Amos.

They clearly are not just resting Amos, because they liked what they saw because Daryl Worley is fighting for his roster spot, played excellent, and got every snap. If Amos was close to earning a spot, they would have given him the Worley treatment. They knew that they had to move on quick, and play Amos against lesser competition next week.
