Rosburg, Pees on how Ravens' moves affect special teams, defense

The additions of young safeties Omar Brown and Brynden Trawick will help the Ravens in multiple areas they're struggling. For one, special teams has become a concern in recent weeks, whether it be kick coverage, punt protection or returns. Both Brown, a 25-year-old in his second season, and Trawick, a 24-year-old rookie, are noted for their work in that area and special teams coordinator Jerry

Healthy linebacker Bynes discusses infected finger scare (Osemele sits)

Josh Bynes spent a night in the hospital on Oct. 15 not 100 percent sure whether he'd leave with five fingers on his left hand. A cut on the Ravens inside linebacker's index finger had become infected, a scary set of circumstances and a different experience for Bynes. "It was tough. It was out of the blue. I just played a game, so of course

Rice says bye was much-needed to get over hip injury (Oher sits)

Ever since injuring his left hip against the Browns on Sept. 15, Ray Rice hasn't looked like himself. He's been a little off all season, but since leaving the win over Cleveland, his burst, quickness and ability to cut haven't been what the Ravens and their opponents had been accustomed to. Rice felt flashes of his speed around the edge in the loss to the

Harbaugh, Canty, Dumervil, Suggs on Ravens' roster shuffle

As the Ravens headed into the bye week, coach John Harbaugh expressed that the team was willing to take any measures necessary to improve the team. He said the organization would trade guys, cut guys or sign guys if that's what it took. The Ravens followed through on that promise on Wednesday by cutting veterans Michael Huff and Marcus Spears. Huff, 30, had signed a

Ravens cut veterans Huff, Spears and add O. Brown, Trawick to roster

The Ravens made a couple of surprising roster moves this morning, cutting a pair of veterans, safety Michael Huff and defensive end Marcus Spears. Baltimore signed safeties Omar Brown and Brynden Trawick from the practice squad to take the open spots on the 53-man roster. The team also signed wideout Kamar Aiken and quarterback Nick Stephens to the practice squad. Huff, 30, signed with the

Monroe feeling comfortable after two games, nearly one month with Ravens

Eugene Monroe has been with the Ravens for nearly a month since the team sent multiple second-day picks to the Jaguars to nab a new left tackle on Oct. 3. About four weeks into learning a new playbook, new teammates and a new organization, Monroe said he's feeling comfortable with his surroundings. "Yeah, I'm good now," he said. "I've had enough time to learn what

Harbaugh, Ravens reconvene after the bye

The Ravens returned to work Monday in Owings Mills after taking a brief breather to rest up with the open date on the schedule. Coach John Harbaugh welcomed his players back to gear up for a road matchup Sunday at Cleveland, a team about as unpredictable as you could find. "It's been a good few days. We got back to work today, we had practice

Ravens sign former Bengals running back Bernard Scott

The Ravens added depth to their backfield Monday, filling the open spot on their roster by signing former Bengals running back Bernard Scott. Baltimore had one opening on the 53-man roster following last week's trade of Bryant McKinnie to the Dolphins, so no additional move needs to be made. Scott, 29, comes aboard after running for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns in four seasons with

Where the Ravens stand coming out of the bye week

Terrell Suggs' "state of emergency" comment after the loss to the Steelers might have been overstating it. The Ravens are 3-4 for the first time under coach John Harbaugh, and that certainly isn't ideal. But they come out of the bye week with nine games to go and thanks to struggles throughout the AFC, they aren't in a bad situation postseason-wise. Baltimore might be 2

Jameel McClain's return provides Ravens defense with a lift

Jameel McClain's return to game action last week meant more to the Ravens than the six tackles he provided. The sixth-year linebacker fought back from a spinal cord contusion - an injury at least one doctor cautioned could be career-ending - to take the field for the first time in 10 months last Sunday in Pittsburgh. Having not played since Dec. 9, 2012, McClain didn't

Harbaugh, Ravens optimistic heading into the bye

So the Ravens are 3-4, struggling to find their run game, having difficulty stopping the run, experiencing problems on special teams and more. They've addressed all of these concerns specifically in recent weeks. But on Wednesday, coach John Harbaugh was asked to flip things around from all the "what's wrong" questions to take a look at what makes him optimistic that this season isn't going

Harbaugh on Pitta, Bynes and open roster spot

Earlier this morning, ESPN's Ed Werder reported that tight end Dennis Pitta is expected to return from his dislocated and fractured hip in mid- to late November. Pitta, who is on injured reserve with a designation to return, was eligible to return to practice this week and is permitted to be reinstated for the Nov. 3 game at the Browns following the bye week. He

Dean Pees analyzes Ravens' leaky run defense

Over the first three weeks of the season, the Ravens could rely on their run defense no matter who they were facing. Even against former Browns tailback Trent Richardson in Week 2 and the Texans' dynamic duo of Arian Foster and Ben Tate in Week 3, the ground game was locked down. Baltimore held opponents to just 74.7 rushing yards per game over those first

Harbaugh on 3-4 start: "We have to find a way to get better"

Coach John Harbaugh is not happy. He isn't thrilled with the offense as a whole, he's not satisfied with the run defense, he's not pleased with the special teams and, because of all that, he doesn't like the record one bit. The Ravens are 3-4 for their slowest start in six seasons under Harbaugh. The team's streak of five straight playoff appearances is far from

Ravens reportedly trade Bryant McKinnie to Dolphins (plus Harbaugh quote)

The Ravens have traded displaced left tackle Bryant McKinnie to the Miami Dolphins, according to FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer. What Baltimore received in return is not yet known, but this would bring the veteran lineman's tumultuous time with the organization to a close. Each of the last two seasons, McKinnie had trouble getting into playing shape in training camp, putting his job in question. In 2012,

Steelers rivalry lives as Ravens head to bye under .500

In six seasons under coach John Harbaugh, the Ravens have never been under .500 at this stage of the season - until now. Baltimore became the first defending Super Bowl champion with a losing record after seven games since the Steelers in 2006 following Sunday's 19-16 loss in Pittsburgh. It wasn't a bad showing for the Ravens, who never led but came back from down

Steelers increase lead late in third quarter (Ravens lose 19-16)

There have been just two drives in a pretty uneventful third quarter, as the Ravens were forced to punt from just across midfield and the Steelers added to their lead on their first drive of the second half. Shaun Suisham booted a 28-yard field goal with 2:56 to go in the third quarter, increasing Pittsburgh's lead to 13-6. The Steelers drained 8:03 off the clock

Pittsburgh leads at half in a typical Ravens-Steelers showdown

Plenty of the key members of the Ravens-Steelers rivalry might be gone, but so far, it feels pretty much the same. Low-scoring, big defensive plays. Gritty, hard-hitting, workmanlike. After one half, the Steelers lead the Ravens 10-6 in a fairly even matchup. Pittsburgh is outgaining Baltimore 176-110 and has been fueled by the rushing game. The Steelers already have 82 yards on the ground through

Steelers storm to early lead as Ravens start slow again (Ravens within 10-6)

After the Steelers and Ravens traded punts on the opening two possessions of the contest, Pittsburgh came up with the first strike of the day. The Steelers drove 60 yards in 10 plays and 6:05, with 25 of those yards coming via the rush, and took a 7-0 lead on Ben Roethlisberger's 3-yard shovel pass to Heath Miller with 5:28 to go in the first

McClain active with McKinnie, Stokley among inactives at Steelers

Linebacker Jameel McClain will play his first game in more than 10 months, as he is active for today's game in Pittsburgh. McClain hasn't played since last Dec. 9 at Washington because of a spinal cord contusion. It will be interesting to see how much action he gets and whether he will start, considering he just returned to practice this week. Tackle Bryant McKinnie and

Ravens activate Jameel McClain, cut Billy Bajema again

Linebacker Jameel McClain appears poised to return to the Ravens' active lineup for the first time since Dec. 9 last season. The Ravens reinstated McClain to the 53-man roster Saturday after he had spent the entire season to this point on the physically unable to perform list because of a spinal cord contusion. To make room on the roster, the Ravens - you guessed it

Ravens set to see Roethlisberger for first time in two years

For all the talk about the departed players from the Ravens-Steelers rivalry - Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, James Harrison, Hines Ward and others - a shoulder injury kept Ben Roethlisberger off the field for both matchups between the teams last season. Well, Roethlisberger is back and performing much better after a poor start to the season. The Steelers quarterback is coming off his first win

Ravens looking to feel a rush, continue recent success in Pittsburgh

Just when the Ravens got a taste of playing in front of their home fans and getting dressed in their own locker room, they head back on the road to face their most hated rival. Baltimore visits the Pittsburgh Steelers for its third road tilt in four games amid a stretch where the Ravens are only home once in six weeks with the upcoming bye

Josh Bynes out, Jameel McClain probable for Sunday at Steelers

Linebacker Josh Bynes' infected finger will land him on the sidelines for at least one week. Bynes is the lone player being ruled out by the Ravens for Sunday's game at the Steelers. The 24-year-old has started all six games so far this year, recording 33 tackles and two passes defensed. On their Friday injury report, the Ravens have listed center Ryan Jensen (foot) and

Ravens glad to be getting healthy at wide receiver

The Ravens went from having just three healthy receivers two weeks ago in Miami to having their full complement of wideouts last Sunday against the Packers. With six receivers able to go against the Packers, coach John Harbaugh chose to deactivate Brandon Stokley, who could have played despite a groin injury. What will the Ravens do this week? Will Stokley be the odd man out

Stokley misses practice, Canty returns to action

Brandon Stokley's groin injury just won't let him get on the practice field consistently. The veteran wideout sat out Thursday's practice with the ailment. Stokley hasn't played since Week 3 against Houston, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh indicated Monday the receiver was healthy enough to play last Sunday. Defensive end Chris Canty, who missed Wednesday's practice with a thigh injury, returned to work Thursday, practicing

Jerry Rosburg addresses Ravens' punt protection problems

The Ravens have been known for their defense and special teams being so good over the course of their history that their offense didn't need to be better than mediocre. Yet, all of a sudden, one taken-for-granted part of special teams hasn't been so special. Baltimore has had two punts blocked this season, one in the opener at Denver and one on Sunday against the

Cornerback Lardarius Webb on being tested more: "In a while, they'll learn"

One year has passed since cornerback Lardarius Webb underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee. And so far, the results have been mixed. Webb ranks third on the Ravens with five passes defensed and sixth with 28 tackles. He has made a number of important plays in the passing game, but perhaps the biggest positive is the fact that

Has Ravens-Steelers week lost some of its luster?

As the first Ravens-Steelers week of 2013 arrives, it's hard not to notice a diminished buzz. The Ravens are 3-3 and one game behind the Browns for first place in the AFC North, while the Steelers are 1-4 and in last place. However, Pittsburgh is coming off its first win following its first 0-4 start since 1968. Several of the primary players in this rivalry

McClain returning to practice Wednesday, says he's ready to play (update)

After 10 months off the football field, the Ravens announced that linebacker Jameel McClain will return to practice Wednesday afternoon. McClain suffered a spinal cord contusion late last season and hasn't played since Dec. 9 at Washington because of the injury. He was cleared to return to action last week and on the first day he's eligible to practice, he will be doing so. "Do

This and that rehashing loss to Packers

Coach John Harbaugh covered a number of topics aside from his team's running problems during his Monday quarterback session. For beginners, how about those persisting slow starts? The Ravens have scored just 22 total points in the first halves of their last five games and were shut out in the first half by both the Browns and Packers. That's especially frustrating for Harbaugh because the

Harbaugh on running game: "Nothing's simple, but it can be fixed"

Just when the Ravens' running game appeared to be taking a step in the right direction, it slipped back to its previous troubling state. Baltimore was held to 47 yards on 22 carries in the loss to Green Bay, averaging just 2.1 yards per carry. The team ranks 27th in the NFL with 72.7 rushing yards per game, having eclipsed 100 just once through six

Ravens' solid defensive effort goes for naught in loss to Packers

Until Aaron Rodgers found a seam for his lone touchdown pass and a couple of other deep throws, the Ravens defense had the Packers' star quarterback shut down. Rodgers was limited to 116 passing yards while being sacked three times and forced to fumble twice in the first half alone. Perhaps it was the amount of time the defense was forced to stay on the

Flacco, Rice, Harbaugh on offensive woes (plus Monroe, J. Jones)

If you only looked at the box score, it wouldn't have reflected the Ravens' continued offensive struggles. The 360 total yards wouldn't have shown that they didn't score a point until 6:06 remained in the third quarter and that they punted on eight of their first 10 possessions - with the other two drives ending in a turnover and the Packers taking over from their

Points are on the board for Ravens (Packers win 19-17)

After 2 1/2 quarters of offensive ineptitude, the Ravens ensured they won't be shut out today. Joe Flacco's 59-yard pass to Marlon Brown set up Justin Tucker for a 23-yard field goal that trimmed the Packers' lead to 9-3 with 4:34 remaining in the third quarter. The five-play, 60-yard drive was the Ravens' longest of the day and puts them right back in this one

Ravens trail Packers 6-0 after strange first half (make that 9-0 in third)

The Ravens should feel fortunate they head to halftime needing just a touchdown to take the lead. Baltimore's offense was simply atrocious in the first half, gaining 122 yards, including an ugly 21 via the rush, in being blanked by the Packers. The Ravens punted six times on eight possessions, turning it over on downs and committing a giveaway on the other two. The Ravens

Green Bay jumps out to early lead (Ravens stopped on goal line)

The Ravens have to feel good about the fact that they trailed just 3-0 after the first drive of the game. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy ran for 47 yards on the first two snaps of the contest - a 10-yard dash followed by a 37-yard pickup. But the Packers stalled at the Baltimore 27 thanks to a dropped pass and a breakup by Josh

Monroe, J. Jones, M. Brown active while McKinnie, Stokley inactive vs. Packers

Eugene Monroe will make his first start as Ravens left tackle today against the Green Bay Packers, while Bryant McKinnie was among those deactivated for the contest. McKinnie had started each of the first five games of the season, but now Monroe takes over after being acquired from the Jaguars the Thursday before the Miami game. Wideout Brandon Stokley (groin) is also inactive for the

Stopping Rodgers, Green Bay offense a tall task as Ravens seek signature win

The opportunities to record a signature win in the NFL are fleeting. Teams don't all play each other during a 16-game schedule and there's only so many elite teams out there. The Ravens hope their second shot at such a victory goes much better than the first - a 49-27 loss at Denver in Week 1 - when the Green Bay Packers visit M&T Bank

Ravens seek offensive consistency with Packers in town

From game to game, let alone quarter to quarter, the Ravens offense continues to lack the dependability that was a hallmark last season. Big plays, a solid running game and strong quarterback performance combined to help Baltimore win its second Super Bowl. This season, the Ravens are still searching. They enter Sunday's game against Green Bay ranked 21st in total offense (330.8 yards per game)

J. Jones, Huff, Osemele among Ravens questionable for Sunday

For the second straight week, the Ravens have no players ruled out in their Friday injury report. Defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee) is listed as doubtful while 11 players are questionable. They are: cornerback Chykie Brown (thigh), wideout Marlon Brown (thigh), safety Michael Huff (back), center Ryan Jensen (foot), wideout Jacoby Jones (knee), linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (hip), guard Kelechi Osemele

Monroe likely to start at left tackle Sunday (plus McClain and Ngata notes)

Coach John Harbaugh ended the mystery of when Eugene Monroe will take over as the Ravens left tackle by saying Friday that the newest member of the team will likely start Sunday against the Packers. "He did a heck of a job this week. He looks good. I would anticipate that he'll play quite a bit - possibly start. You might even say probably start

Tucker back to striving for perfection since rare misses against Browns

Justin Tucker set a specific goal for himself before his rookie season and again before his sophomore campaign, one that would be difficult for any player to reach, let alone a kicker. Tucker wants to be perfect. "I want to make all my kicks," Tucker said. "Really, all you can do is take it one kick at a time. Last season, I only missed three

Ngata misses practice for second straight day, C. Brown limited

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata missed practice for a second straight day on Thursday, but there have been no indications from the Ravens that his hip injury will keep him off the field Sunday. Defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee) and linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder) also did not participate. Eight others practiced in a limited capacity with cornerback Chykie Brown joining that group because of a thigh

Ravens secondary making steady progress since awful opener

Since being blasted by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Week 1, the Ravens secondary has been awful good instead of just awful. In the season-opening 49-27 loss, Baltimore was burned for one big play after another, letting Manning throw for 445 yards while matching an NFL record with seven touchdown passes. The unit went into lockdown mode over the following four games. The

Bajema on being re-signed by Ravens for third time this season

Tight end Billy Bajema has been a part of six Ravens transactions since Aug. 31. He has been cut and re-signed, cut and re-signed, cut and re-signed. Thursday morning brought the most recent in that series of movements, when Baltimore brought the nine-year veteran back once again, cutting running back Shaun Draughn in the process. Bajema said it doesn't bother him too much to essentially

Ravens re-sign tight end Bajema yet again, cut tailback Draughn

Now it's just getting kind of funny. The Ravens re-signed veteran tight end Billy Bajema on Thursday morning and this time cut running back Shaun Draughn to make room. Bajema has now been cut and re-signed three times by Baltimore since first being removed from the roster at the end of training camp. Draughn might be in line for similar treatment, but could also be

Ngata sits out Ravens practice while Packers officially rule out Matthews

The Ravens released their Wednesday practice report and perhaps the only name that drew a head-tilt was that of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who did not participate because of a hip injury. Defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee), center Ryan Jensen (foot) and linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder) also did not practice. Seven other members of the team were limited participants: receivers Marlon Brown (thigh), Jacoby Jones

Jacoby Jones not sure whether he'll be able to play vs. Green Bay

Last week, Jacoby Jones made the step from being ruled out early in the week to being listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Whether Jones can take the next leap to cracking the active roster for the first time since Week 1 remains to be seen. Jones said Wednesday that while his sprained knee has improved, allowing him to practice for a second

Monroe on whether he'll play Sunday: "I'm ready" (McClain medically cleared)

If Eugene Monroe has anything to say about it, he won't be sitting out another game while becoming acclimated to his new digs. Monroe was acquired from the Jaguars last Thursday to take over as the Ravens' starting left tackle, and he wants to do so beginning this Sunday against Green Bay. "I'm ready. I think I'm ready to go," Monroe said Wednesday. "I'll get

Ravens officially re-sign Stokley, cut Bajema

When it comes to wideout Brandon Stokley and tight end Billy Bajema, it's almost like the Ravens have a 54-man roster. The roster-crunch carousel continued Tuesday when Baltimore officially re-signed Stokley and cut Bajema. Again. The Ravens had released Stokley, 37, on Saturday in order to have Bajema, 30, on the roster Sunday in Miami, when Baltimore managed to win despite dressing only three receivers.

Ravens see improvement from O-line, running game (plus Monroe note)

One week after calling the Ravens' offensive line play unacceptable, coach John Harbaugh had a distinctly different tone on Monday. Harbaugh was much more positive about the job his offensive front did at Miami, leading to a season-high 133 rushing yards and just two sacks allowed. The Ravens' running game was still pretty close to non-existent in the first half of the Dolphins game with

Harbaugh unsure about Stokley re-signing, plus injuries and more

Reports surfaced Monday afternoon that veteran wideout Brandon Stokley had re-signed with the Ravens after being cut by the team Saturday. Coach John Harbaugh wasn't ready to confirm those reports, however. "I don't know how that's going to shake out. We'll see," he said. Baltimore went with just three wide receivers in Sunday's win over the Dolphins and it worked out just fine. Torrey Smith

Sacks, rushes and field goals key Ravens' win at Dolphins

Talk about a quick turnaround. In the first half, the Ravens looked sluggish for a second straight week - unable to protect their quarterback and unable to move the ball on the ground. And then over the final 30 minutes, that wasn't the case anymore. Baltimore scored 17 straight points to start the second half, coming back from seven points down before responding to a

Dolphins help Ravens' cause (Ravens win 26-23)

The Ravens needed something to change on the first drive of the second half and while it wasn't the running game or offensive line, they'll take it. Baltimore benefited from two defensive pass interference flags on Miami that added up to a combined 55 yards. That fueled a six-play, 80-yard drive that allowed the Ravens to tie it at 13-13 just 2:53 into the third

Another slow start for Ravens in Miami

The Ravens went into halftime trailing the Dolphins 13-6 with plenty of issues to address. There's the offensive line, which is getting burned in both passing and running situations. There's usually steady Sam Koch, whose suddenly inconsistent punting has put the field position battle in the Dolphins' favor. There's the running backs themselves, who aren't breaking tackles and have been unable to make a big

Ravens score in first quarter for first time since opener (Dolphins up 13-6)

The Ravens are out to an early 3-0 lead in Miami after using a big defensive stand and a nice play by Torrey Smith to set up Justin Tucker's 42-yard field goal. Those three points give Baltimore its first points in the first quarter since the season opener at Denver. The Ravens made it happen by stalling the Dolphins on the game's first drive, using

Receivers J. Jones, M. Brown and tackle Monroe inactive at Dolphins

The Ravens will be a bit short at receiver when facing the Dolphins today. Wideouts Jacoby Jones (knee) and Marlon Brown (thigh) are both inactive for the contest, leaving just Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson as healthy options at the position. The team cut Brandon Stokley on Saturday, perhaps with the belief that Jones or Brown would be able to play. So, instead

Ravens cut Brandon Stokley, re-sign Billy Bajema

Brandon Stokley's second tour of duty with the Ravens appears to have been a short one. Baltimore announced it has the veteran wideout Saturday afternoon and re-signed tight end Billy Bajema, who was waived on Thursday. Stokley, 37, appeared in three games, making nine catches for 79 yards this season. He was originally drafted by the Ravens in 1999 and was a member of their

Suggs, Ravens determined to stall upstart Dolphins

The Ravens will be the latest team to get a crack at one of the NFL's early-season surprises with a trip to face the Miami Dolphins. Miami has opened the year 3-1 for its best start since beginning 4-1 in 2003. The Dolphins were 3-0 before suffering a 38-17 setback at New Orleans on Monday. Miami is off to that hot start without ranking among

Ravens hope to get running game in order at Miami

While there are plenty of issues the Ravens are working to address after last week's loss at Buffalo, the running game should be drawing the most attention. The offensive line woes and Baltimore's abandonment of the ground game have been discussed multiple times this week, and the team made an effort to upgrade in that department by acquiring left tackle Eugene Monroe from Jacksonville. There's

J. Jones upgraded to questionable, no one ruled out for Ravens at Dolphins

After missing the last three games, wideout Jacoby Jones appears to be nearing a return. Jones, who was ruled out of each of the last three games with a sprained knee, has been upgraded to questionable for this week's road contest in Miami. Jones was a limited participant in practice all week after sitting out since the opener. "I'd say he made a lot of

Monroe excited to join Ravens' winning culture (plus injury report)

New Ravens tackle Eugene Monroe spoke to the media for the first time since being acquired from the Jaguars on Thursday, and expressed excitement to be joining a winning organization after a career marred by losing. During his five seasons with Jacksonville, the team went 22-46 with 8-8 being its best record. Since 2009, the Ravens have gone 45-21 with four playoff appearances and a

Monroe passes physical, Ravens waive Bajema to make room on roster

The Ravens made their trade for Eugene Monroe official Thursday when the former Jaguars left tackle passed his physical with the team. Baltimore waived tight end Billy Bajema to make room on the roster for Monroe, who will wear No. 60 since his former number (75) was worn by Hall of Famer Jonathan Ogden. Bajema, a nine-year veteran, has appeared in 12 games with the

J. Jones returns to practice while Webb, M. Brown, Thompson sit (update)

The Ravens were missing a healthy number of key players from practice today, some expected and some not. Cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh), wideouts Marlon Brown (thigh), Brandon Stokley (groin) and Deonte Thompson (concussion), center Ryan Jensen (foot), defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee) and linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder) all sat out practice today. That left Baltimore quite short at receiver. But the Ravens did get some

Flacco, Rice weigh in on O-line troubles

The Ravens made the move to acquire a new left tackle for a reason. The offensive line hasn't been getting the job done and everyone around Owings Mills knows it, including the linemen themselves and the team's two offensive centerpieces - quarterback Joe Flacco and tailback Ray Rice. The Ravens rank 28th in the NFL in total offense and rushing offense. The passing offense, in

Harbaugh, Ravens react to trade for left tackle Monroe

A host of Ravens acknowledged and reacted Wednesday afternoon to the team's trade for left tackle Eugene Monroe, a move that has not yet officially been completed but will shake up a scuffling offensive line. Coach John Harbaugh said a couple of conditions still need to be met, but they're not anticipated to be an issue. Monroe's physical will take place today or tomorrow, but

Ravens agree to acquire offensive tackle Eugene Monroe from Jaguars

Clearly unsatisfied by their offensive line play this season, the Ravens made a major move to address it Tuesday night. Baltimore has agreed to acquire offensive tackle Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars pending a physical, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. In return, the Ravens are expected to give up multiple draft picks, according to The Sun. Monroe, 26, is considered one of the top

Ravens reinstate, then reportedly cut safety Christian Thompson

The Ravens reinstated safety Christian Thompson on Tuesday and then reportedly cut him, according to The Sun. Thompson was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Baltimore selected the 23-year-old in the fourth round of last year's draft, but he was surpassed in the safety rotation and lost his roster spot to the just-acquired Jeromy Miles. Thompson
