Rookie Williams among those shaken up by injuries vs. Eagles


Rookie Williams among those shaken up by injuries vs. Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – The Ravens were battered and bruised during Saturday night’s first half, leaving the field with a variety of injuries and trailing the Eagles, 24-0. Among the injured Ravens were:

- Starting left tackle Eugene Monroe

Monroe was seen sitting on the sidelines with his right hand, lower arm wrapped in ice, according to CSN’s Brent Harris. Multiple injuries along the offensive line has become a growing concern.

- Backup running back Lorenzo Taliaferro

According to a tweet from the Ravens, Taliaferro suffered a knee injury and was in the locker room being evaluated. Taliaferro appeared to be winning the battle with rookie Buck Allen to be the No. 2 back behind Justin Forsett. If Taliaferro misses a lengthy amount of time, Allen’s role would become more important.


- Ravens rookie tight end Maxx Williams

Williams, the team's second-round pick, was shaken up with an undisclosed injury. Williams had looked good in practice recently and had an impressive catch-and-run play late during the Ravens' preseason opener. He returned to the game in the second half.

- Backup tackle James Hurst

Hurst was in the locker room being evaluated for a possible concussion. Hurst is a valuable backup, who started some games last year when Monroe was injured. 

- Backup offensive lineman De’Ondre Wesley

Wesley went down with an apparent leg injury and limped to the locker room with assistance. 

The Ravens’ second preseason game could turn out to be a costly one.

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.”
