Speaking of offensive line play, the website Pro Football Focus rates each player's performance following games and left guard Kelechi Osemele received an overall grade of -3.3, which tied with tight end Ed Dickson for the lowest grade amongst all Ravens' offensive players. Osemele allowed two quarterback hits and three hurries in the loss to the Denver Broncos and struggled to open up holes with the run as well. Make of it what you will, but I thought this was worth mentioning because Osemele also graded out poorly in the preseason ahead of what some predicted could be a Pro Bowl campaign for the second-year guard.
The re-signing of Doss makes sense for a couple of reasons beyond the simple fact that the Ravens needed a wide receiver with Jacoby Jones sidelined. One, they needed a guy that already knows the offense, which Doss does. With Brandon Stokley and Dallas Clark still learning the offense, bringing in another guy who needs time to get to know the playbook would be too much. And two, Doss can return punts. The Ravens would prefer not putting Webb in jeopardy less than a month removed from knee surgery, so Doss makes sense in that role until Jones returns.
