Matt Skura to miss rest of season with knee injury

The Ravens had the same starting offensive line for each of the first 11 games this season, but they won’t be able to make it 12 straight against the 49ers this week.

Center Matt Skura was carted off the field with a knee injury in the first quarter of Monday night’s game and initial reports indicated it was a sprain. That diagnosis suggested Skura would return this year, but Tuesday’s news wasn’t so positive.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that Skura will miss the rest of the season. He’s set to have surgery to repair the injury.

Skura has been a starter in Baltimore since midway through the 2017 season. Patrick Mekari will take over the role now that he’s out of action.

  1. Matt Skura has been solid for the Ravens this year! He played outstanding. Mekari did a very nice job when he got thrown in the fire. He will do just fine. It is injuries like this that could swing the pendulum. Luckily, the Ravens have more than capable back-ups.
    Speedy recovery Matt!

  2. center is huge for line continuity, makes all the calls, if their backup is capable, shouldn’t miss a beat, but look at the Pats oline since Andrews went down, been crap all year, wish him well, never like to see anyone get injured

  3. Not a Baltimore fan, but you always feel for anybody who gets hurt and has to miss part of any season.
    Regardless of what eventually becomes of the 2019 Ravens, it’s probably especially frustrating to sit and watch while your teammates continue what appears to be a special season — one you had contributed to up to this point.
    Best wishes for a full recovery.

  4. Mekari played well last night, but I’m really nervous about relying on him in road environments in the playoffs given the fact he’s an undrafted rookie. I’m curious who the Ravens will add for OL backups now, probably Ben Powers. The good news is that Mekari will be forced to play some stout DL in the next two weeks with SF and Buffalo, so we can quickly see if he can handle it the rest of the season or if we need to look elsewhere before it blows up in our face.

    False. Andrews is really good, bur Karras has done a good job all year.

    Try learning the game before mouthing off as a Brady Homer Apologist.
