Suggs suffers another serious injury

Already without Ray Lewis because of a torn triceps, the Ravens are expected to announce that Terrell Suggs has a torn biceps, according to an ESPN report, but that doesn’t rule him out for Sunday’s game at the Washington Redskins.

Suggs who didn’t play until Week 7 because of offseason surgery to repair an Achilles tear, left Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the fourth quarter when his arm was bent awkwardly as he attempted to tackle Isaac Redman.

He left the game and never returned.

Lewis went out with his injury Oct. 14 vs. the Dallas Cowboys, also in the fourth quarter of a close game won by the Ravens 31-29.

He was put on injured reserve, but under a special condition that allows teams to re-activate one player from that list per season. Lewis can return as early as Dec. 16 vs. the Denver Broncos.

Though Suggs’ injury is similar, it is different from Lewis’. It is possible to play if he can tolerate the pain. Biceps are two muscles that control the upper arm and the ability to flex the elbow.

The triceps, a bundle of three muscles, allow the arm to straighten.

Miami Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby has been playing with a torn biceps since Oct. 28. He wears a brace that limits his range and allows him to still play.

That might limit his ability to catch interception in coverage because he can’t fully extend his arms but he still can tackle. Dansby was credited with10 in Sunday’s 23-16 loss to the New England Patriots.

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.
