Ravens' Top Pass Rusher Exits in First Quarter

The Baltimore Ravens' injury woes continue. Edge Rusher Justin Houston exited early in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots with a groin injury, and the team announced that he is questionable to return.
The Ravens have had a rash of injuries on defense, particularly among their outside linebackers. The recent injured reserve placements of Daelin Hayes and Vince Biegel even spurned the addition of Jason Pierre-Paul this week.

Houston joined the Ravens in 2021 following a two-year stint with the Indianapolis Colts. He is best remembered for his eight seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he notched 78.5 sacks and earned four Pro Bowls. His best year came way back in 2014; he tallied a league-leading 22 sacks in an All-Pro season. Should he be unavailable for any extended time, the Ravens will be obligated to rely heavily on Pierre-Paul, Brandon Copeland, and Odafe Oweh going forward.
