Ed Dickson’s hamstring leaves Ravens thin

Ed Dickson AP

Injuries happen in training camp, that part is unavoidable.

But when they start piling up at certain positions, a bad situation becomes worse.

The Ravens, already without starting tight end Dennis Pitta for the season, watched replacement Ed Dickson leave practice early Sunday with a hamstring strain.

“Ed Dickson, his hamstring grabbed a little bit, so we pulled him out for precautionary reasons,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “We’ll take a look at it and see how it looks.”

Even if it looks good, being without the top two names on your depth chart at any position is tough. For a team that figured to lean on its tight ends more after trading away wide receiver Anquan Boldin, getting Dickson healthy and finding him some help is key.

    Typical Ravens problem. They had enough problems as it was and their roster got even thinner. They’ll never get close to the Redskins.

    but hey, at least they spent 100 million for flacco

    It is things like this that make it so hard to go back to back as champions. No matter how good a team is assembled, you never know how the ball is going to bounce.

    Hopefully Dixon makes a fully and speedy recovery and this doesn’t linger into the year. You hate to see a team falter because of bad luck.

    Someone will step up. Or they’ll sign Dallas Clark this afternoon.

    If it looks good, I don’t see how that leaves them thin, unless “thin’ means not having an All-pro level player. Of course that would mean just about every teams is thin.

    Now if it doesn’t look good, that’s another story.

    Yeah, they’ll never get close to the redskins record of futility for the last 2 decades

    No sympathy for the Ravens. They were more than happy that Big Ben got hurt against the Chiefs. We were on our way to winning the division and they were scared.

    Can’t wait to catch these Ravens fans in a hypocritical “box” when they start whining about injuries. The Steelers had an unbelievable amount of injuries last season and the Ravens fans yapped it up.

    They will regret the Boldin move big time.

    How can you be “on your way to winning the division” when you never made it past second place??? Even if you beat us in that first game you were still 2 games back and would’ve remained in 2nd place. Tell me again how we were scared???

    Look at all the Steeler sickos gloating over an injured player! How petty and reprehensible. You’re going to wish you had a little more class during the offseason when you see how unforgiving the otherwise gracious Ravens’ fans can be when Flacco is humiliating your shriveled up defense.

    The Ravens had a ton of injuries too especially on defense. Don’t recall anyone complaining about it and blaming it they just rallied around who could play and won a super bowl.

    They will regret the Boldin move big time. Says who? I heard a forty-whiner fan complain about Rice’s 29 yard run on 4th down. Complaining about Boldin’s block. Whatever. Doesn’t he play for the Whiners now. Good luck this season to all the teams. Except the 49ers and the Indianapolis Irsays. If the Ravens don’t make the playoffs, Maybe the Bengals can make some noise. Or the Steelers or Browns. The Ravens have to make the playoffs. Tammy will be there. Good luck Tammy. Slide-kicker.
