Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he was not considering any changes to the coaching staff, despite the team’s 1-4 start.
“Our coaches are doing a good job,” Harbaugh said during his Monday press conference. “We just got to collectively find a way to finish games and get the job done. We’ve got tough challenges that we’re facing, but we’ve got just the men for the job.”
The Ravens’ defense has struggled on third down and in late-game situations, making defensive coordinator Dean Pees a target for fans’ criticism. However, Harbaugh insisted the Ravens still believed they would find answers.
“We don’t need to play harder, we need to play better,” Harbaugh said. “We don’t need to coach harder, we need to coach better.”
As for injuries, Harbaugh said running back Justin Forsett (ankle injury) did not have a high ankle sprain, and had a chance to play Sunday against the 49ers. However, Harbaugh confirmed cornerback Will Davis was done for the year after tearing his ACL against the Browns.
There were a host of injuries that Harbaugh did not update at Monday’s news conference, including outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (groin), cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh), wide receiver Darren Waller (concussion), wide receiver Steve Smith (back), tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf),running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot), and defensive end Chris Canty (calf). More news about their progress would be revealed when the Ravens returned to the practice field Wednesday.
