You know the regular season is here when I’m passing along injury reports.
Try and contain your excitement.
Here’s how today’s injury report reads for the Ravens and Jets:
For Baltimore, DT Terrence Cody (knee), OT Jared Gaither (back) and WR Donte’ Stallworth (foot) have been ruled out for Monday night’s game.
DE Paul Kruger (shoulder) did not participate today, while CB Lardarius Webb (knee) and OT Oniel Cousins (head) participated in full.
For the Jets, OLB Calvin Pace (foot) has been ruled out for the regular season opener. S Brodney Pool (ankle) did not practice today, while DE Shaun Ellis (knee) participated in full.
For those who need a quick refresher on how injury reports work, “full participation” is defined as 100 percent of a player’s normal repetitions, while “limited participation” is less than 100 percent of a player’s normal repetitions.
Teams must release three injury reports a week. For Sunday games, they come on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For Monday games, you guessed it, back those three reports up a day each.
