The Baltimore Ravens return to football action on this week’s Monday Night Football. Not at full strength, the Maryland team might have to play their game without a few key players. With their top tight end, top running back, and top wide receiver out, their wounded offense will take on the meaty defense of the Saints on Monday. 

All is not well in the Ravens camp. John Harbaugh finds himself in a soup as his top men find themselves nursing injuries.

Baltimore Ravens take a hit

Prior to the Saints game, a reporter had his say on what to expect at the Monday night game. Baltimore received a big blow in the Bucs game as their top wide receiver left the game in the second half. Rashod Bateman entered the Bucs game listed with a niggling foot injury and wasn’t able to see the game out. In this week’s update, they confirmed that the Minnesota alumnus will undergo a season-ending foot surgery. While this will be a big miss for them for the rest of the season, it sets up the best time for DeSean Jackson to ensure he is a contender for the starting WR spot.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews also played the game against the Bucs whilst nursing a concern to his knee. However, he ended up doing up his shoulder in the game. In their final injury report before the game, Coach Harbaugh mentioned how he hadn’t trained all week.

The Ravens will look to protect their top tight end as they approach a bye week to ensure a full recovery for him. Andrews currently leads the Ravens in receiving yards and touchdowns. He will be a big miss, but they would rather protect him for their home run coming up soon.

To add to their offense-line woes, they will also be without their top two running backs. JK Dobbins was back in action against the Giants after a very long time. Unfortunately, his comeback was short-lived, and he underwent knee surgery. Though it isn’t a season-ending one, he won’t be available for the Ravens at least for a few more weeks. Meanwhile, Gus Edwards also didn’t train all week similar to Andrews. He picked up a hamstring injury in their Halloween match with Tampa Bay. Fortunately; it isn’t a very serious one.

These kinds of numbers on the injury list are definitely of concern. However, this isn’t new at the Ravens camp. Last season too, they were cursed with injuries. The entire running back squad was wiped out before the season began. They even lost both cornerbacks midway through the season. To top it all they lost their star QB Lamar Jackson in game week 14, which kept him out for the remainder of the season.

While the Ravens look to improvise on their two-game winning streak, they travel to New Orleans to take on a 3-5 Saints side. Their losing record might be a boost for them. However, the Saints’ defenders shut out Las Vegas in their last game. For a side filled with injuries in their offense, this will be a grueling task.
