It has to be disappointing for the Ravens to put second-year player Prescott Burgess (wrist fracture) on injured reserve. He worked extremely hard during the offseason and has played well in training camp. He has excellent potential, especially considering he's 6-3 and 240 pounds. As a rookie, Burgess got off to a good start playing in the first eight games a year ago and collecting seven special teams tackles. But he missed the last eight after being placed on IR with a hip injury.
The Ravens have a lot of good young linebackers, but they need playing time. The team might need some of these young guys next season with Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott being in the final years of their contracts.
