I am concerned about the defense right now, and how the line and secondary are being ravaged by injuries.
The injury problems continue to pile up for the Baltimore Ravens during this pre-season, especially at cornerback.
Cliff Brown joined Ed and Steve to talk about the Ravens outlook heading into the dress rehearsal also known as pre-season game 3.
Chris McAlister joined Ed and Steve to talk about being a Buffalo Bills coaching intern.
One of the biggest roster questions other than cornerback for the Ravens is that of Right Tackle. Ricky Wagner has been getting the majority of first-team reps at the position, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
“[Harbaugh] said Ricky’s been solid, and solid comes before good, which comes before great. So Wagner isn’t good or great just yet, but he’s looking like he’ll win the job,” said Coleman.
“He’s probably in the top four players you cannot afford to lose. It just shows how valuable he is, because you saw how Dominique franks faired when replacing him,” said Wilson.
“The thing about the preseason is you just sort of want to survive and advance to games that matter,” Wilson added.
Although depth and injury problems have been a factor in the preseason for Baltimore, there have been a number of bright spots in the first two games.
Lardarius Webb, out with a back injury, did not practice Wednesday at Ravens Training Camp. This raises questions about the Ravens’ depth at secondary, specifically the corner position.
As Training camp opened, the Ravens still have received no indication as to when the league will announce any discipline for Rice
Everyone is expecting the Ravens to be good this year especially with Gary Kubiak handling the offense. Who will be Joe Flacco’s go to guy? According to Brown the “Ravens do have enough weapons this year to be successful.”
The Ravens have been in the news a lot this offseason, mostly for all the wrong reasons, due to the number of player arrests this year. Former Raven Femi Ayanbadejo joined Travis Thomas on Sports Rehab to discuss the Jimmy Smith arrest and the offseason troubles for the Baltimore Ravens.
For the fifth time, a Ravens player has been arrested, making the team number one in most arrests for the off-season. The latest arrest involves starting cornerback Jimmy Smith, who was taken into Baltimore County police custody over the weekend after they say he did not follow police orders.
“Guys like Marlon Brown have already been asked to take reduced roles because of arrivals to the team such as Steve Smith,” Wilson added.
