Ravens could be without two starters on offense for Rams game

Ravens starting left guard Kelechi Oseleme is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams with a knee injury, which could leave the Ravens without two starters along the offensive line.

Rookie tight end Nick Boyle is listed as doubtful for the Ravens after missing practice all week with a foot injury. He has been wearing a walking boot on his left foot all week. Linebacker Elvis Dumervil (knee), who sat out Wednesday's practice but participated fully the past two days, is listed as probable. Chris Canty and Daryl Smith, who had a day off on Thursday, are also listed as probable.

If Osemele is sidelined, the Ravens will be missing two of their five starting offensive linemen. Center Jeremy Zuttah (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve earlier this week, so John Urschel will be making his first start at center. In Friday’s practice, Ryan Jensen lined up at Osemele’s left guard position.

Osemele did not practice Wednesday, but then was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice and missed practice on Friday.

Boyle, who has 14 catches for 128 yards this season, is the only Ravens tight end who has appeared in every game.

For the Rams, starting tackle Rob Havenstein (calf) is doubtful. Defensive end Chris Long is listed as questionable, along with defensive end Robert Quinn (hip) and backup tight end Justice Cunningham (finger). Long hasn't played since suffering a knee injury in Week 5 against the Packers. Rams center Tim Barnes (concussion) is probable.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.

“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”
