Chuck Clark had not played more than three defensive snaps in a game this season until the Ravens’ 44-20 victory over the Detroit Lions at M&T Bank Stadium, in which he lined up for 10 snaps as a linebacker in the defense’s dime package.
That might seem an unusual assignment for a rookie who was selected in the sixth round of April’s NFL draft as a safety, but Clark said he welcomed the role.
“I felt pretty comfortable,” he said after Thursday’s practice. “In college [at Virginia Tech], I moved around to different spots on the field. So I was just being on the field and playing ball and making plays.”
