Stud Baltimore Ravens Tackle Unlikely to Play Week 1

Both teams will have major question marks along the offensive line when the Baltimore Ravens face the New York Jets this Sunday. The Ravens listed their former Pro Bowl tackle Ronnie Stanley as Doubtful on their final injury report:
The news comes following a report that the Jets would be short their own left tackle Duane Brown. Stanley returned to practice this week, igniting hopes that he might finally see the field after a pair of injury-riddled seasons. Alas, Ravens fans will have to wait a little bit longer to see the key cog that helped them lead the league in scoring in 2019.

Stanley has missed a frustrating 26 games over the past two years, but the Ravens are right to play it slow with the one-time Pro Bowler; a complication from the ankle injury he suffered in 2019 cost him all but the first game of 2020. The team will likely ease him in for the foreseeable future and deploy him in a game a little more meaningful than this week's matchup against the Jets. They have more important contests against fellow potential AFC playoff teams the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and the Buffalo Bills over the next three weeks, then have their first divisional game in Week 5 against the Bengals.
