Ravens LB Patrick Queen, RB Latavius Murray, C Bradley Bozeman injured in win over Chargers

Despite beating the Los Angeles Chargers, 34-6, at home Sunday afternoon, the Ravens had another rough day with injuries.

After watching inside linebacker Patrick Queen exit in the first quarter, running back Latavius Murray and center Bradley Bozeman went down with injuries in the second half.

With less than three minutes remaining in the third quarter, quarterback Lamar Jackson handed the ball off to Murray, who injured his ankle after getting tackled by Chargers linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga on a 3-yard run. Murray was looked at by trainers on the field before limping towards the sideline under his own power.

Coach John Harbaugh said after the game he doesn’t believe the injuries to Bozeman and Murray are “overly serious.” The injuries came on a day when the Ravens got back safety DeShon Elliott and offensive lineman Tyre Phillips, who had been sidelined since Week 3 and Week 1, respectively.

Murray went into the locker room and didn’t return after rushing for 44 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Injuries have hampered the Ravens’ backfield, which is why Murray was signed as a free agent last month. Running backs J.K. Dobbins (torn ACL), Gus Edwards (torn ACL) and Justice Hill (torn Achilles) are out for the season.

Earlier in the quarter, Bozeman went down with a back injury. The Ravens were pinned at the Chargers’ 32-yard line with 11:40 to go when Murray rushed up the middle for a 1-yard gain, and Bozeman got rolled up during the play and lied on the ground until trainers attended him. Bozeman was able to get up and jog off the field and returned to the field during the next offensive drive, but would later leave the game.

Bozeman’s injury comes after left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was sidelined for the fifth straight game, while rookie left guard Ben Cleveland was placed on short-term injured reserve with a knee injury he suffered last week against the Indianapolis Colts.

Meanwhile, Queen injured his thigh during the first quarter but returned late in the second quarter after being listed as questionable. The Ravens’ leading tackler finished with three stops.

The Ravens have seen their fair share of injuries at the inside linebacker position. Veteran L.J. Fort tore his ACL during a preseason game against the Carolina Panthers and is out for the season. Otaro Alaka is also on injured reserve with a knee injury.
