Ravens OUT for Week 5: OLB Odafe Oweh, S Daryl Worley, OT Morgan Moses
Same case here with Morgan Moses as the one I already discussed about Odell Beckham, only in reverse.
Beckham is listed as "questionable" but he made it clear on Friday that he will play, whether that happens under a pitch count or not. At the end of the day, OBJ as a participant in all three practices this week, so it makes sense to at least give him a few reps to see where's at in a high-stakes environment.
Now, for Moses, that's not happening. Moses has played a freaking 134 consecutive games tracking all the way back into his rookie season. It's going to suck for him and for us to watch the man miss a game, let alone a divisional matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers of all franchises.
But the truth is that Moses hasn't practiced for most of the week. He sat out Wednesday's session, was only limited one day later, and logged another DNP on Friday, which doesn't bode well at all for him ahead of Sunday's kick-off even though he's listed as "doubtful" in the last injury report.
Expect the Ravens to face the Steelers front seven without their starting right tackle, folks. That injury is not fully fixed, is raising free-agency questions, and it makes no sense to risk losing Moses for a longer period of time against a struggling team that would have it hard to beat Baltimore anyway.
Daniel Faalele should start in place of Moses if he ends up missing this game.
No need to comment that much about Odafe Oweh who keeps rehabbing his ankle injury and hasn't practiced in a good while after going down in Week 2 against the Bengals. Oweh has missed two games and will do so for a third time this weekend.
Meanwhile, the teammate and fellow edge rusher David Ojabo was placed on IR and is debating whether or not to call it a season by going under the knife.
We hope to know more soon, but for now, Baltimore must go with the veteran pair of Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy at EDGE. Which hey, it's looking like a genius decision!
On a final note, the Ravens ruled out a comeback by Daryl Worley, who injured his shoulder in the game against the Browns last Sunday and will have to wait at least one more week to hit the field.
If he does so, then that'll happen overseas in London as the Ravens fly across the pond to face the Tenessee Titans next week.
