In a season that was filled with injuries before it even began, the Baltimore Ravens got yet another big one today. All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley is out with an injury.

NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday that Stanley is out this week and "possibly longer" as he undergoes medical testing. Stanley has been battling an ankle injury but played the entirety of Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

With Stanley out, Alejandro Villanueva will move over to left tackle. Patrick Makari will reportedly be moved to right tackle for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Ravens fans are understandably frustrated with how things are going so far. They lost to the Raiders on national television on Monday and now have the daunting task of facing a surging Chiefs team this Sunday.

Before the season even started, the Baltimore Ravens lost all three of their top running backs for the coming season. They wound up starting Ty'Son Williams and Latavius Murray in the game.

The pair did pretty well despite their limited first-team reps heading into the game. Williams had 65 rushing yards and a touchdown on nine carries, while Murray added a touchdown of his own.

But the Ravens will be hard-pressed to win with the running backs they have and the changes to the offensive line.

A loss to the Kansas City Chiefs will put Baltimore in an 0-2 hole early in the season. They'll need to get healthy very quickly in order to stay in the playoff chase.
