Tavon Young could potentially be out the remainder of the season with 'serious' neck injury, Harbaugh says

Tavon Young could potentially be out the remainder of the season with 'serious' neck injury, Harbaugh says

Ravens cornerback Tavon Young could be out for the foreseeable future with a "serious" neck injury, Coach John Harbaugh told the media following the Ravens' 26-13 win over the Packers Thursday night.

The 2016 fourth-round draft pick out of Temple sustained the injury earlier in the week and missed practice and the team's Week 2 preseason win.

“Tavon has a more serious issue than we thought," Harbaugh said. "He’s got a neck issue. The doctors can explain it, but it’s a disc issue. That’s a serious injury."

The severity of Young's injury still needs to be determined by doctors, but Harbaugh said it doesn't look good.

"He could be out for the remainder of the season, we’ll know soon," Harbaugh said. "But, it doesn’t look good for Tavon.”

Once the severity of the injury is evaluated, doctors will make a determination on the best route to take for Young's healing. However, Harbaugh said that a procedure would be “probably the best thing to do."

Young's injury comes just after signing a three-year extension with the team in February.

Lamar Jackson reacts to Madden 21 rating: ‘I wish it was better’

Madden 21 released a few ratings of top players in this year’s game, and to no one’s surprise, Lamar Jackson is perhaps the game’s most fun player.

Jackson is the game’s fastest quarterback with a 96 speed rating, paired with a 95 overall throw on the run rating, as well as a 94 rating for throwing under pressure. His throw power is 10th in the game at 92 overall.

But Jackson did take a little exception to his overall rating, which is a 94 -- good for the third best quarterback in the game behind Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson.

“I wish it was better,” Jackson said Monday evening on SportsCenter. “But hey, it’s better than it was last year. I guess we can roll with it till the season starts.”

Jackson, the cover athlete for this year’s game, started last year’s game at just a 76 overall.

Jackson wishes his rating was a little better this year due to his improvement from his rookie season to his second year in the league.

“I just think I did better than last year,” Jackson said. “I did a lot more than people expected, and our team did.”

As for what Jackson guessed his rating would be before the big reveal?

“At least 96, 97 probably,” Jackson had said.

Ravens' J.K. Dobbins earns top Madden 21 rating of rookie running backs

Ravens' J.K. Dobbins earns top Madden 21 rating of rookie running backs

Baltimore Ravens rookie J.K Dobbins may have been the fifth running back taken in the 2020 NFL Draft but he’s No. 1 in the eyes of EA Sports' Madden NFL 21. In the newest rankings, Madden has the former Ohio State star as the highest-rated rookie running back in this year's edition. 

Dobbins, who earned a 75 overall rating leads the pack followed by Kansas City Chiefs’ Clyde Edwards-Helaire (74), Detroit Lions’ D’Andre Swift (74), and Indianapolis Colts’ Jonathan Taylor (73). All were selected before Dobbins in April's draft. Over three seasons at OSU, Dobbins rushed for 4,459 yards and 38 touchdowns. His speed, power and versatility as a runner and receiver in the backfield earned him this rating, but we’ll see if he lives up to being “best in class” this upcoming season.
