The Ravens' offensive line will have a new look Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, with Kelechi Osemele, who typically plays left guard, lining up at left tackle during pregame warmups.

Starting left tackle Eugene Monroe went on injured reserve with a shoulder injury Saturday, but had missed the last two games with the injury and has started just six times this season due to that injury and a concussion suffered in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos.

Typically when Monroe is out, reserve tackle James Hurst steps in for Monroe. But Hurst's recent struggles led to a shuffle that will see Osemele at left tackle and reserve Ryan Jensen starting at left guard.

John Urschel remains at center, with the Week 1 right side of the offensive line intact — Rick Wagner at right tackle and Marsha Yanda at right guard.

Osemele started 38 games at left tackle at Iowa State, and played right tackle during the regular season of the 2012 Super Bowl season before a shakeup for the playoffs moved him to left guard. He was also a candidate to start at left tackle the following season, but Bryant McKinnie returned to the team and took that spot.

It will be the sixth different starting offensive line combination used by the Ravens this season.
