Starting Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns after being added to the injury report Saturday with an illness.
Stanley, who missed the Ravens’ first four games while recovering from his second straight season-ending ankle surgery, has been one of the team’s best players over the past two weeks. The 2019 All-Pro has yet to allow a quarterback pressure in his 44 pass-blocking snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
Stanley’s illness adds further uncertainty to the Ravens’ offensive tackle situation entering a crucial AFC North game. Starting right tackle Morgan Moses (heel) was listed as questionable Friday after a limited week of practice. Patrick Mekari replaced Moses after he was carted off the Ravens’ loss Sunday to the New York Giants, leaving him unable to share snaps at left tackle with Stanley, whose ramp-up the team has monitored carefully.
If Stanley and Moses are unavailable Sunday, Mekari and rookie Daniel Faalele would likely start at tackle against a potent Browns edge rush. Myles Garrett has five sacks in five games, and fellow defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has 1 1/2 sacks in three games.
Reserve Ravens guard Ben Cleveland is also questionable. A foot injury limited him in practice this week, and he was designated with an illness Saturday along with Stanley.
