The Ravens will be without wide receiver Jacoby Jones for a month or more after he suffered a sprained MCL in Thursday night’s loss to the Broncos.
It doesn’t look like they’ll have to survive that long without right tackle Michael Oher, who left the game with a sprained ankle. Oher wasn’t in a boot or using crutches after the game and Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that further tests on the ankle have left the team feeling that the injury is not a very serious one.
That doesn’t mean Oher’s a sure bet to be on the field in Week Two against the Browns because he still must respond to treatment and a return to the field without any trouble, but the extra time before the next Baltimore game should work in his favor. Because they played on Thursday, Oher will have more than a week to recover before the home opener against Cleveland.
If Oher isn’t able to play, the Ravens are going to need to either get more from Rick Wagner or find a different solution at right tackle. The fifth-round pick was overwhelmed by the Broncos on Thursday night and gave up a steady stream of pressure against quarterback Joe Flacco.
