Ravens cornerback Samari Rolle was walking around the locker room with a sling on his left arm, but Rolle said he will play Sunday against the Eagles.
Rolle, who has missed six games this season with a neck injury, played well last week against the Giants. Despite missing extensive time the past two seasons with injuries, Rolle has played well when he has gotten on the field.
When asked if he had hurt his arm trying to tackle Giants 264-pound running back Brandon Jacobs, Rolle said no.
"No, I didn't get in his way," said the 168-pound Rolle, smiling. "I tried on purpose not to get in his way."
I don't blame Rolle one bit.
The Ravens offensive tackles have been hit hard by injuries, so hard in fact, that the Ravens re-signed Chad Slaughter, who was at practice today. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
