Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata began this season in dominating form, chasing down quarterbacks and tossing aside blockers to tackle running backs.
Since damaging his right shoulder and spraining the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, Ngata hasn't been the same player in recent weeks due to his injuries.
During a 25-15 victory over the Cleveland Browns, Ngata's range was largely confined to the line of scrimmage as he failed to record a tackle for the first time this season and just the second time in his career.
"Now, it's limiting me," Ngata told The Baltimore Sun. "I just can't do what I want to do most of the time."
Ngata was able to record six tackles and a sack against the Dallas Cowboys three games ago despite dealing with the injury, but his impact has declined over the last two games.
