Ronnie Stanley returns to Ravens practice

The Ravens got good news about one of their three starting offensive linemen dealing with injuries on Thursday.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley took part in practice after missing Wednesday’s session. Stanley’s foot injury has kept him from playing the last two weeks, forcing the Ravens to shuffle some pieces along their offensive front and contributing to the team’s struggles when they’ve had the ball.

Even if Stanley returns to action, the shuffling might have to continue against the Giants this weekend. Right tackle Rick Wagner and right guard Marshal Yanda missed practice for the second straight day, which will add to concern that they’ll be unable to go on Sunday. The Ravens claimed former Dolphins guard Billy Turner off waivers on Wednesday and signed Vladimir Ducasse on Tuesday to increase their options in the event the duo can’t play.

Wide receiver Steve Smith also missed practice with the ankle injury he suffered against the Redskins, which may lead to a bigger role for Kamar Aiken in Week Six.

  1. Ravens need to get off of some of those quality young defensive linemen they have and make a trade for a quality guard or right tackle. For some reason, Ozzie seems to think he can dumpster dive from everyone elses discarded trash and come up with something great. It isn’t happening. Time to quit this charade that the Ravens are a competitive team and realize you are in rebuilding mode and do some rebuilding. You don’t win anything for having the most draft picks and anything over 10 is ridiculous because with a 53 man roster, only about 5 or 6 of those picks will actually make the team. The others will be wasted spots that could have been used to secure quality players.

  2. So much wrong with xinellum’s comment.

    Those quality players are on the line already, just injured. Rebuilding mode is the Browns and the Rams. Trading mid season in the real world doesn’t work like in your fantasy team. Example, Eugene Monroe. All the experts who know football praise Ozzie’s ability to stockpile picks year in and year out so you don’t know what you are talking about.
