Ravens Hopeful Two Offensive Weapons Can Play Tonight

The Baltimore Ravens have been a solid team thus far in 2022, with a 4-3 record that isn't indicative of just how good they can be, but with injuries and inconsistencies on the offensive side of the ball, they haven't yet been able to go on a run and take control of the AFC North. The quest to get ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals reaches Week 8 tonight on Thursday Night Football with a clash against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and there's certainly some optimism circulating through Ravens camp the day of the big matchup.

DeSean Jackson could likely to make his Ravens debut against Tampa Bay, but it's the status of two of their other key offensive stars that should bring more positivity to Baltimore, as both Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman are expected to play, despite being listed as questionable on the teams last injury report before the game.

Between the two, they make up for a lot of the Ravens aerial attack, and without them in the lineup, this team has proven to be much more limited as a passing attack. The two of them make up over 700 receiving yards and 7 Touchdowns thus far in 2022, and if Baltimore are to take down a depleted Buccaneers squad, they'll need to be firing on all cylinders, which looks likely just hours ahead of the game.
