Timmy Jernigan leaves game with knee injury; Ryan Jensen in concussion protocol

Three Ravens defensive linemen -- starting defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, and defensive ends Lawrence Guy and DeAngelo Tyson -- left Saturday's preseason game against the Washignton Redskins with injuries.

Jernigan suffered an apparent right knee injury on the fourth defensive play of the game and walked straight into the locker room after hobbling off with the help of trainers.


Jernigan, a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, missed four games in 2014 with a knee injury, but was heavily relied on late in the season when defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was suspended for Adderall use.

Jernigan has been tabbed as the full-time replacement for Ngata in 2015.


In the second half, injuries to Guy and Tyson left them even thinner at the position. Guy was taken into the locker room in the third quarter to have his knee looked at. He retuned to the sideline shortly thereafter, but did not play again.

Tyson injured his shoulder on a fourth-down stop early in the fourth quarter, and was being consoled on the bench by several teammates before he went into the locker room.

Losing Guy and Tyson left the Ravens defense with Kapron Lewis-Moore, Micajah Reynolds, Christo Bilukidi and rookie Carl Davis available on the defensive line.

The scariest injury of the game, though, was one to left tackle Ryan Jensen, who started in place of Eugene Monroe.

Jensen had his head down as he blocked a Washington player on a screen pass on the second offensive drive of the game. Jensen's helmet came off, and he tried to get up immediately, but was wobbly on his feet and needed help getting off the field.

Earlier in the game, wide receiver Kamar Aiken was shaken up on the opening kickoff, and missed the first offensive series. He returned for the second series after having his foot/ankle area worked on.
