The Ravens placed Tony Jefferson on injured reserve with a knee injury a week ago and it looks like another safety with a knee injury is going to be joining him on the list.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said at a Monday press conference that DeShon Elliott is expected to miss the rest of the season after being injured in Sunday’s win over the Bengals.

Elliott was a sixth-round pick in 2018 and spent his rookie season on injured reserve. He’s appeared in every game this season and played a career-high in snaps against Cincinnati before getting injured.

Earl Thomas, Chuck Clark and Anthony Levine are the healthy safeties in Baltimore. Thomas and Clark both played every defensive snap in Sunday’s game.

  1. This is a bummer now too. This once vaunted defense lost a number of key players this offseason and is now riddled with injuries. I’m a Raiders fan, but always really appreciated and loved the Ravens, they’re #2 on my list because of the way they’ve always played, with great defense. This team still has a relatively high ceiling with Lamar Jackson, but they need to retool this defense over the next few years. One of the main concerns of the Ravens, especially using the 3-4 scheme against the pass, is their lack of defensive speed. Their man coverage by linebackers and safeties has not been good this year.

  2. Losing 4 cornerbacks and 3 safeties to injury makes any defense stressed.

    And that after Suggs and Mosely signed big deals elsewhere.

    I’m shocked the Ravens are winning any games at all this year.

    Its actually a testament to Harbaugh and the DC there that they are doing well at all.

  3. “Thomas and Clark both played every defensive snap in Sunday’s game.”

    In fairness there weren’t that many defensive snaps. LOL. The Bengals offense wasn’t on the field much.
