BALTIMORE - Offensive lineman Ryan Jensen suffered a concussion during Saturday night’s preseason game, during a first-quarter collision that knocked his helmet off.
Starting at left tackle for the Ravens in place of Eugene Monroe (bruised forearm), Jensen rose to his feet fairly quickly after the play ended, but he was assisted off the field and taken to the locker room. Jensen will now be placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol, and will not return to practice or game action until he is medically cleared. When the Ravens' offensive line is healthy, Jensen is a versatile backup who can play center, guard, and tackle.
Jensen’s injury continued what has been a physically difficult preseason for the Ravens’ offensive line. Left guard Kelechi Osemele (Achilles) did not play Saturday, and was replaced by John Urschel. The Ravens’ offense still looked crisp in the first half, as they jumped to a 13-0 lead. However, the Ravens will want their offensive line to be healthier before the Sept. 13 regular-season opener in Denver.
