Marshal Yanda handles switch from RG to LG like Pro Bowl player he is

Marshal Yanda handles switch from RG to LG like Pro Bowl player he is

As the Ravens deal with offensive line issues, Marshal Yanda continues to show why he is a special player.

Yanda moved from right guard to left guard against the Cowboys on Sunday, to offset the impact of playing with an injured right shoulder. As usual, Yanda was excellent. Most players would have far more difficulty making that switch, but most players are not Yanda, a five-time Pro Bowler.

“He kind of looked like he’s played it all along,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh. “He didn’t have any problems in there. It was a good move for us.”

Harbaugh said Yanda made moving from the right side to the left side far easier than it was.

“I don’t know if it’s quite as drastic as this, but in some ways, it’s like you’re a lefty all of those years, and now you have to go over to the right of the plate and hit,” Harbaugh said. “You’re going to play golf the other way. You’re going to play tennis the other way. I don’t think it’s that drastic, but it’s different. You have your other hand down. You have your other foot back and everything is backwards; you’re setting to the left instead of to the right. All the plays are flipped…It just shows you what a phenomenal athlete he is and how determined he is and really what a good football player he is.”

With left guard Alex Lewis (high ankle sprain) expected to miss at least a few more weeks, expect the Ravens to continue starting Yanda at left guard. There is no doubt he can handle it.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Sports Illustrated predicts Ravens defense will regress this season

With training camp just eight days away, here is the latest news surrounding the Baltimore Ravens.

However, not as much as one would expect, he says.

2. Speaking of defense, Ravens outside linebacker Matthew Judon is entering his contract year. The Athletics' Jeff Zrebiec writes that this upcoming season should be a breakout year for Judon who could make a big impact on defense.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson organizes private workout with receivers

With training camp just nine days away, here is the latest news surrounding the Baltimore Ravens.

1. Quarterback Lamar Jackson organized an off-site work out with Ravens wide receivers Chris Moore and Willie Snead IV over the weekend. The second-year quarterback followed through with his plan of working with his receivers on his own time before training camp begins next week. Backup quarterback Robert Griffin III was present as well.

2. With the addition of six-time Pro Bowler Earl Thomasthe Ravens secondary was ranked the deepest group in the NFL, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. Pairing Thomas with safety Tony Jefferson creates one of the best safety tandems in the league, and Baltimore has a deep group of cornerbacks in Jimmy Smith, Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Carr, and Tavon Young. The Ravens defense allowed just 17.9 points per game a season ago, which was the second-best mark in the NFL.
