No return date yet for Suggs

The Ravens placed linebacker Terrell Suggs on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list a few days ago. Basically, that means the earliest you could see Suggs on the field would be in the sixth game this season.
Suggs suffered an Achilles injury (tear) in the off-season and then had surgery in May to fix it. These injuries can often make a player miss the whole season, but neither Suggs nor the Ravens have wanted to commit to that just yet.
Suggs has repeatedly said hell be back in 2012. The Ravens have been careful about saying much on the situation, so this was kind of the first indication of what could happen. This means that he wont be back until at least that sixth game on Oct. 21.
Still, coach John Harbaugh, when talking to the media a few days ago, wouldnt tip his hand much about what the Ravens hope for or expect from Suggs.
We dont know. Its still early, Harbaugh said. Id say hes doing reall well. From everything Ive been told, hes doing very well. So, thats where were at. Its too far off to say a date, really.
The Suggs situation will likely remain unclear until the end. Theres always that chance that the NFLs Defensive Player of the Year from last year simply wont make it back this season. If so, thats not surprising.
But Suggs has been very adamant in talking about the fact that hell be back. Theres no question that the Ravens need him in many ways especially in the pass rush, which has struggled already throughout the pre-season.
This is just going to be one of those things thats going to take some time. If Suggs comes back, it will be midway through the season or later on. That much appears to be more clear now.

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.
