Ravens Insider: Ravens news, notes and opinions


Recommended Posts

The Ravens do a great job of moving beyond injuries, not fretting about them publicly and not using them as excuses. However, I’d have to think that there is significant concern in the Castle about the health of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata .  Ngata is dealing with knee and shoulder injuries and Harbaugh was noncommittal Monday when asked about whether he could be held back a little to make sure he’s healthy for the end of the season. And the reality is that Ngata at 50 percent is far better than anything else that the Ravens could put out there. However, after having nearly two full weeks to rest, Ngata was held without a tackle and wasn’t much of a factor in the 25-15 victory last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. It’s true that Ngata’s pressure on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden led to Cary Williams’ third-quarter interception. It also should be mentioned that Ngata drew a ton of attention from Pro Bowl center Alex Mack and others. Still, it’s alarming that Ngata didn’t have a single tackle when the Browns ran the ball 27 times. Injuries really limited Ngata’s production down the stretch last year and the already-struggling Ravens’ defense can’t afford to have that happen again.
