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.
