Columnist Mike Preston answers questions about what offensive coordinator Todd Monken can do to help quarterback Lamar Jackson, what happened with that strange fair catch near the end of the Colts game, Zay Flowers returning kicks and more.
This all seemed surreal, like another preseason game, columnist Mike Preston writes. How else could the Ravens lose to the Colts, a team missing its rookie quarterback, two starting offensive linemen and trotting out one of the worst cornerback tandems in the NFL?
Columnist Mike Preston answers questions about the outside linebacker's role in the pass rush, the pile-up of injuries, key matchups against the Colts and whether it matters that Lamar Jackson is wearing a wristband again.

Columnist Mike Preston answers questions about the leadership shown by quarterback Lamar Jackson, whether Ar’Darius Washington could step in at safety and how the offensive line is shaping up early in the season.
