I thought it was interesting that coach Brian Billick even mentioned possibly putting Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden on injured reserve if he doesn't play in the Pittsburgh game.
I don't know if Ogden will be ready or not, but the Pittsburgh game is only the midseason point. I think Billick is trying to prod Ogden into playing because the game is so important.
With an offensive line as young as the Ravens and so decimated by injuries, this team can't afford to lose a player like Ogden. I don't think Billick's words will have any impact on Ogden. He'll play when he is good and ready.
By the way, if this season starts going south in the second half, the Ravens will be signing players off the street because there will be so many injuries, some real, some made up.
