Ravens continue to get ravaged by injuries as Lamar Jackson loses key protector
The Ravens are preparing to be without All Pro LT Ronnie Stanley this week and possibly far longer ad he undergoes more medical testing. Villanueva slides back to LT, his natural spot, with Patrick Makari next up to RT. OL was already under fire before this setback

The Ravens could really use someone like Orlando Brown on that offensive line right about now. To add salt to the wound, they will face him Sunday when the Chiefs head to Baltimore.
It’s been a bizarre start to the year for the Ravens as it pertains to injuries.
J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are both out for the year as is Justice Hill. Those were the top three running backs, in order, for the Ravens entering the year.
Their first-round rookie wideout Rashod Bateman started the year on the shelf and will miss a few weeks as well. Now, add Stanley to that list. And that’s just on offense.
Baltimore’s star cornerback Marcus Peters also suffered a season-ending injury right before Week 1. It’s suffice to say that it’s been a mess for John Harbaugh so far this year.
Not having Stanley will be huge as he is not only an all-pro, but protects the blindside of Lamar Jackson. As they always do in Baltimore, it’s next man up and they will carry on and try to stack up some wins early in the season.
