Hurst, Henry, the WR in just a few days.  This is how Harbs teams fare.

They're likely hiding Scott on the IR because he is too raw but has potential...

Yup.

 

I didn't know Harbs ran every team with injuries in the NFL...

Just curious when you're going to look for a job. So far, this appears to be your full time job- ripping the coach, his staff, the players, and the Ravens in general. We have two insignificant injuries.

BFD.

 

INJURIES HAPPEN.

I've been watching football for decades and any team can and will have some injuries. So far, we've only had a few that are out for a few weeks and only one or two longer term ones (Deshaun Elliot, Jaleel Scott). It's ridiculous to believe you can go through camp, preseason and the regular season without incurring a handful of injuries.

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

I don't expect them to have none.  I just found it interesting it has been quite a few really fast.  There have been so few for weeks now.

and they have Lamar Jackson and that spells disaster!

Doomed!

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Yes, they are out for a few short weeks, not long lasting or season ending. Do you even know what the word "insignificant" means?

I see it as guys who are not important.  I think both of them are hugely important.  I do not see this team being capable of stumbling out of the blocks and having a successful yr.  If they do what they did last yr out of the gate then they are done.

Hurst is unproven, Henry inconsistent. I don't see either as a big loss right now.

Hurst has been pretty damned good this PS.  Henry starting last yr was the 2nd best DL they had.

Hurst wasn't any better than Boyle nor the other highly drafted waste of a pick Max Williams were in their rookie pre season games.

Henry has been decent, I would hardly call him the best linemen last year, Judon had a great season too. This team is loaded with defensive linemen,

He was the 2nd best last yr.  He was behind Willaims.  Judon is the LB.

Eh, lb in designation only for Judon. The Ravens run basically a 5- 2 most of the time, they just rotate which side covers the flat if/ when needed. Sometimes that means Judon would drop, thus the designation of olb, rather de or dt.

It matters little except for money... None of them, the lbs, can cover very well.

I am talking down lineman.  Judon is not that.

Losing Hurst for 3-4 weeks hurts but is not critical. Ditto for Henry.

 

I agree Hurst was having a very good pre-season.

 

Joe also had a very good pre-season and I think he elevates the play of Crabtree, Brown, and Snead. And vice-versa.

Hurst and Henry are really good yet there is depth to make up for their loss.

I've seen enough of Hurst to think he'll be as good or better than Pita. He's not Todd Heap...yet.

 

Henry needed time to develop and he's coming along well. I believe he emerges out of the pack this year. I'm very glad the Ravens were able to stash him his rookie season.

Ravens' Stanley Jean-Baptiste: Feared to have broken arm

 

Jean-Baptiste is feared to be dealing with a broken arm, Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official site reports.

Jean-Baptiste exited Thursday's preseason finale with a right arm injury and was later seen with his arm in a cast and a sling. He'll likely land on injured reserve as a result, and his 2018 season may be over before it began.

Ravens' Kenny Young: Injures knee in preseason finale

Young was seen with his left knee wrapped after Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official site reports.

Young, who's competing with Patrick Onwuasor for the starting weakside linebacker, will reportedly undergo an MRI later Friday to determine the extent of his injury.
