No team in the NFL has been hit harder by injuries so far this season than the Baltimore Ravens.
Before the first game of the 2021 season kicked off, the Ravens lost four players to season-ending injuries. Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards along with star corner Marcus Peters all suffered torn ACLs.
Backup running back Justice Hill suffered a torn Achilles as well. Unfortunately, that’s not the last of the injury news for the Ravens.
Following the team’s season-opening loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, the team is reportedly planning to be without star left tackle Ronnie Stanley this weekend. According to a report from Jason La Canfora, Stanley could miss multiple weeks.
“The Ravens are preparing to be without All Pro LT Ronnie Stanley this week and possibly far longer as he undergoes more medical testing,” La Canfora reported. “Villanueva slides back to LT, his natural spot, with Patrick Makari next up to RT. OL was already under fire before this setback.”

Losing Stanley would be a massive loss for the Ravens offensive line – especially considering how badly the offensive line was beat last weekend against the Raiders.
Alejandro Villanueva was torched consistently as he went against Maxx Crosby on the right side of the line. The Ravens have to be hoping a switch back to left tackle will suit him a little bit better.
Baltimore faces off against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
