">a statement. Dixon will work alongside Chief Medical Officer Dr. Andy Tucker begin his duties at next week's Combine in Indianapolis.

This change at the Head Athletic Trainer will likely be welcomed by the majority of Ravens Nation.

This past season, the Baltimore organization was absolutely devastated by injury woes, placing 25 players on the injured reserve. After this disappointing year came to a close, head coach John Harbaugh sat down with his performance staff for four hours to discuss upcoming changes.

"You can call it bad luck. You can say it's a fluke. I get that," Harbaugh said in his end-of-season press conference. "I don't feel like we have the luxury to live there. We have to turn over every stone. We've got to look at every possible avenue to do the best we can to make sure this doesn't happen again. That's what we plan on doing."

The Ravens saw seven starters suffer season-ending injuries in the first nine weeks of the season. They also dressed 75 different players this year, tying a franchise record.

"We're looking at everything, and we're going to change a lot," Harbaugh added back in January. "We're going to do everything we can do to make sure we come through as strong as we can be, ready to attack the season when the season starts. We're not going to take it and say it's OK. Some of it has to be fixed."

Prior to his new position with the Ravens, Dixon served as the Rehab Coordinator/Assistant Athletic Trainer for the Tennessee Titans. There, he specialized in treatment programs for injured players.

Under this new leadership, the Ravens will look for a far healthier season in 2022.
