The Baltimore Ravens are still waiting on a couple of offensive starters to get healthy.
Wide receiver Lee Evans, who has been sidelined since Week Two, and guard Ben Grubbs, who hasn’t played since Week One, have both been ruled out for Monday night against the Jaguars.
Evans’ ankle injury has hampered him longer than the team expected. He was out of practice all week. Grubbs has a toe injury that has likewise taken longer than expected to heal.
“It’s just probably slower than any of us imagined those guys would be,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Grubbs and Evans. “We just have to keep fighting and trying to get them back. I think there’s going to be one day when we walk out here and they’re going to go through a full practice and they’re going to feel good and they’ll be ready to go. Hopefully sooner rather than later.”
But not for at least another week.
