LANDOVER, Md. — The Ravens added injury to the insult of a disappointing 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins with the loss of two more starters on Sunday.
Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda exited in the fourth quarter with a right ankle injury and didn’t return while starting inside linebacker Jameel McClain left Sunday’s game in the third quarter with a neck injury and was sidelined for the remainder of the afternoon. Coach John Harbaugh confirmed X-rays were negative on McClain’s neck.
“That’s good news,” Harbaugh said of the preliminary results.
The immediate status of Yanda remains a mystery as there was much concern over his injured ankle following the game. The sixth-year lineman was helped to the sideline as he put no weight on his right leg before being carted to the locker room. Following the loss, Yanda left the Ravens locker room using crutches but was able to put some weight on the ankle as he moved to the team bus.
Veteran Bobbie Williams filled in at right guard in Yanda’s absence while McClain was replaced by former practice squad member Josh Bynes in the second half. The Ravens were already without starting inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who missed his second straight game with an ankle injury.
The Ravens also reported minor injuries to running back Ray Rice and fullback Vonta Leach. Rice suffered a hip pointer and Leach sustained an ankle injury, but neither is considered to be serious considering both players finished the game.
Rice ran for 120 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and did not appear to be favoring the injury in the locker room.
Five-time Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs didn’t play in Sunday’s game as his status remains uncertain moving forward after he suffered a torn right biceps in last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
On the plus side, the Ravens hope to see the returns of inside linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Jimmy Smith this week as they turn their attention to the red-hot Denver Broncos for Week 15.

  1. Who is CB Chris Johnson and can you please alert him that the cardinal rule of cornerback play is not to allow a receiver behind you to settle into the endzone uncovered to tie the game while you have absolutely no receiving threat in front of your flat zone coverage.
    Reed arrived too late for the Cousins heroics.
    Jacoby Jones was irate over touchback call after skins two point conversion. Was the kickoff kicked out of bounds….Should have been a spot at the 45 and a flag!!!….CBS refused to show any replays and Rich Gannon was as perplexed as Jones??
    Finally, the fumble recovery on kickoff coverage overturned by referee (Reid on Courtney Upshaw big hit) was not enough conclusive evidence to overturn ruling on the field….Huge call by referee to overturn!!!
    As mentioned on the air with Drew, I AM GETTING VERY NERVOUS. Stuck on 9 wins??!!….Broncos, NY Giants, Bengals remaining….Stop the L streak football gods….PLEASE.
    Regards,
    Franchise

Where is Roger Goodell in discussing “best interest of game” for NFL fans and players during plague?

If you witnessed the Denver Broncos play a game without a quarterback then you know on Tuesday night the Ravens will play without 20 real NFL players in Pittsburgh. That doesn't make it any less disgraceful for the integrity of the league.

Is it safe for Ravens and Steelers to be playing football on Tuesday night?

Every day there's a new set of positive tests in Baltimore and Pittsburgh. The Ravens haven't been sanctioned to practice but will travel to play 20-men short at Heinz Field against the undefeated Steelers. Luke and Nestor discuss the absurdity.
