Jacoby Jones headed for MRI on right knee

AP

One of the first signs that things might not wind up going the Ravens’ way on Thursday night came in the second quarter when Jacoby Jones was wiped out by teammate Brynden Trawick while trying to field a punt.

Jones immediately went to the locker room, walking gingerly and favoring his right knee all the while. He didn’t return to the game and said after it was over that he didn’t know how bad the injury was or how long he might be out of the lineup. Jones will be heading for an MRI to assess the damage, which the receiver-thin Ravens have to hope isn’t significant.

Jones wasn’t the only Ravens player knocked out of the game on Thursday. Right tackle Michael Oher didn’t return after spraining his ankle in the first half, leaving rookie Rick Wagner to man the post in his first NFL game. Oher wasn’t in a walking boot or on crutches after the game, but wasn’t sure that meant all would be well in time for Week Two.

“I don’t know. I got to find out,” Oher said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

The Ravens have some extra time to heal up for their next game and we’ll find out soon enough whether that will be sufficient for Jones and Oher to recover.

  1. Gotta be one of the most bone-headed special teams plays I’ve ever seen. Trawick just got himself buried on the depth chart.

    This clownish stunt is right up there with the ‘butt fumble’.

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Not even close. The butt fumble will be on clips for our grand children to see……I doubt that this special teams screw-up will make highlites years from now.

  3. After watching the game last night, it’s pretty obvious whos going down next – Flacco is going to get Rice destroyed. Won’t last the season, Flacco’s first read is the checkdown. Too bad, Rice is a good compliment to an O.

    The playoff run made me forget how bad of a QB he really is.

  4. Brynden Trawick better hope he’s the next coming of John Lynch now as that’s the only way he’ll be able to get away with FF.

  5. Ravens need to work in Marlon Brown and Aaron Mellette ASAP. Its obvious Clark and Stokley are washed up. They cant get any separation from the secondary receivers , which is ok if you have steel traps for hands like Boldin, but they dont. Flaccos going to get a lot of interceptions this year it seems..

  6. Hey crown, before this thread blows up with haters like all the others this morning explain to me why Flacco is that bad after this game and what that has to do with Jones’ injury.

    Other than two picks (first was bad the second he’s getting desperate to score), he threw a career high number of times, 2TDs, 300+yards, and consistently hit his receivers in their apparently stony hands.

  7. @Steeley McBeam

    Lardarius Webb did not get scored on the entire night. That was Corey Graham and Jimmy. They’ve gotta step up. Our entire secondary does.

  8. some of u clowns obviously didnt watch the game and see he targeted dallas clark quite often. they had to throw a rookie wr out there too and he made a play as well

  9. as much as I hate the Ravens, I hope he will be ok. I don’t feel bad for any team (including mine) that has to deal with injuries…its part of it and the best teams overcome it. I do feel bad for the individuals who get hurt. football is at its best when the best players are out there.

  10. lf4l, we must’ve have watched two different games. How about the throw back across his body that prompted even Collinsworth to say, “Flacco’s luck continues” – should’ve been pick 6. How about the 41-yd completion to Clark where the defender went for the ball and missed, though it went right through his hands, should’ve been pick 6. And then how about the actual pick 6 where the defender messed up.

    Need more?

  11. And let’s not forget that was the Denver defense, minus their two best players. Not exactly world-beaters.

  12. Why exactly didnt the Ravens keep Boldin? They need that physical make catches over the middle receiver, Terrell Owens is available.. and im serious. That might be what they need.

    and I got this guy on my FF team

    If you have Jacoby Jones on your team.. and he is starting for you, your team is doomed bro..

  14. Yes crown I need more of what happened, not what “should have” happened. The “should have” can go on forever. Citing Colinsworth is weak.

  15. crown, you can pick on the tight ends and the defense all day, they deserve it. But your obsession with Flacco is just awkward. If he repeated that game all season he’d throw for almost 6000 yards and 32 TDs (yes 32 picks too).

  16. Fluke-O only got those TD’s and yards after the game was a blowout. In the third quarter the Ravens only had 6 yds of offense. When the blowout happened Denver let up on defense and offense then when the Ravens scored Manning went back on the attack and quickly and easily put the game out of reach. Wondering if Denver is really that good or the Ravens are that bad. Both are probably true.

    ——————————
    Do’t forget they’ll be 0-16, he’ll have a 54% completion rate with about a 35 QBR. Quite elite indeed.

  18. To all you Flacco haters. Peyton and Flacco each have one superbowl win. And they each have the SAME number of playoff wins-9, Flacco .692 % Peyton .450 post season (but hasnt been playing 15 years to do it). So you tell me why Flacco stinks. At the same pace, when Flacco has been playing 15 years, he would have 3 Superbowls and 20 post season Victories… Would he THEN be considered a great QB?
    Matty has been in the league just as long, and has only ONE PLAYOFF victory (thats ONE).
    10 years from now When Flacco retires, he will have the most post season victories of any QB in History except possibly Brady. Statistically speaking..

    Pretty sure you are smarter than this. Flacco didn’t cause the loss and you know it. I’ll take his performance and effort. Enjoy your day knowing a division rival got their ass handed to them on national TV. Lets hope your whole season isn’t highlighted with someone else beating up the Ravens.

    What game did you watch? The first TD was a pass to Leach in the first quarter. Did the Broncos D also let up in the first half? After half time Broncos scored after that Welker drop that was counted and then after the blocked punt and that’s when the wheels started coming off.

  21. “Lets hope your whole season isn’t highlighted with someone else beating up the Ravens.”
    ——————————————————
    If that’s the Defense they’re gonna trot out each week, then I’m sure there’ll be too many highlights to choose from. Hopefully the Steelers will be one of those.

  22. As a Steelers fan, of course I was happy with the outcome of last night’s game because it’s better for my team. And based on the lopsided outcome, I’m not sure the venue would have made any difference. But I still think the Super Bowl champs and sports fans in Baltimore were screwed by one very selfish baseball team.

    Not a baseball fan, but they do play umpteen games for every one football game. How many times does a city have a Super Bowl champ? The opening night belongs to that city and that team. I can’t imagine the Pirates refusing to step aside for the Steelers, but if our team had been forced to play their first full game in six months at that altitude, I wouldn’t have been a happy fan.

    And if one of our stars was leveled by an inattentive rookie? Good grief. Ditto for the showboater who cost Denver a TD. Otherwise, what a performance from Peyton. Did someone once say this guy was washed up?

  23. Some one put out an amber alert fr Joeflaccomontana…..you know the guy who is all over steeler threads when his team is doing well, but hides like the child he is when his team loses….don’t fret skippy one game a season doesn’t make…it will motivate the over inflated raven egos back down to earth which is all that is needed….steeler fans we know the ravens will be back….so enjoy the beat down but be weary of the ravens.

  24. Once again all of the intelligent fans rush to make a judgment in September. The Ravens aren’t that bad and the Broncos aren’t that good. As usual, Peyton will win the September/ October/ November Super Bowls, lead his team to 11 – 0, set all kinds of records, get a first round bye, and get trounced in the div. round. Him in the playoffs is almost as big of a crime as the Bengals wasting a spot every year. The Ravens are building a team right now and will begin peaking in November and reach the mountain top in early 2014. It’s a long season.

  25. Hope that jacoby recovers soon and it’s nothing long term.

    Bet the menu in Baltimore tonight features a surf and turf special….crow and crab cake ala joeflaccomontana.

    Bahahahahahahhahahahahahahhahahahahahha
    And he is one of the many reasons why steeler fans are loving life right now!

    His mommy probably took his computer away after he proclaimed the ratbirds would somehow go undefeated this year. So much for that. 0-1.

  28. get well soon jacoby…we need you back. some interesting posts on here. i for one am not making excuses…we got whooped. it happens. 15 more to go. hope you all have an enjoyable football weekend
