Ankle injury could set back OL Williams

For a team that's been battling the injury bug, the Ravens aren't any worse off going into this week's game vs. the Oakland Raiders.

Left guard Bobbie Williams, however, will be monitored in practice and have his reps limited because of an ankle injury.

Williams, acquired as a free agent from the Cincinnati Bengals during the offseason, broke his ankle and had surgery.

He was slow to recover and didn't begin 2012 in the Ravens' starting lineup.

Williams regained his spot a few weeks ago and Ramon Harewood has been deactivated from the game-day roster.

"We'll see," coach John Harbaugh said of Williams' sprain. "We'll probably give him some rest during the week some time and try to get him to Sunday."

Right guard Marshal Yanda also hurt his ankle and knee.

Defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh) missed Sunday's 25-15 win at the Cleveland Browns. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who has been limited by a shoulder injury.

On a positive note, guard/tackle Jah Reid played his first game of the season after being limited by a calf injury since the summer.

"He played 10 or 15 snaps, different positions in there, and he played well. He did a nice job. It was the first time he’s really taken any extended time out there, and he wasn’t overwhelmed at all," Harbaugh said. "That’s what you look for in a young guy, and he wasn’t."

Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe has busted thumbs.

"He’s got casts on (his thumbs), so it makes it a little tougher for him to use his hands," Harbaugh said. "He played well without thumbs.”

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
