Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley injures ankle in win over Browns; John Harbaugh says it’s not serious

Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley injured his left ankle in the third quarter of the team’s 38-6 win over the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium and did not return to the game.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson was sacked on third down on the team’s first drive of the second half, and Stanley’s leg was caught in the scrum. Stanley, a first-team All-Pro selection last season, walked slowly to the sideline before being attended to by team trainers. Stanley remained on the sideline for the remainder of the game, standing up and walking around at times.

After the game, coach John Harbaugh said that Stanley’s injury was not serious.

“It’s not a serious injury, just a little tightening up there,” Harbaugh said. “He got rolled on I think, maybe. It’s not a serious injury to my knowledge right now, and [we] don’t expect it to become one tomorrow.”

D.J. Fluker, the 29-year-old veteran whom the Ravens signed this offseason, took over for Stanley at left tackle.

Extra points

  • The Ravens limited Browns star wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry to a combined eight catches for 83 yards but allowed 138 yards on 5.1 yards per carry, even as Cleveland trailed for most of the game. “The fact that we did contain their weapons was probably the key thing,” Harbaugh said. “We gave up more rushing yards than we wanted to, our guys are not going to be happy about that. I already know they’re not, because I’ve seen them, and that’s how they feel about it.”
  • Harbaugh said after the game that three people received a game ball in the locker room: team president Dick Cass, quarterback Lamar and defensive end Calais Campbell. “Dick Cass and the whole organization got us here, Dick led that,” Harbaugh said. “And we wouldn’t be here without Dick and the entire organization, every single person who stepped up to bring us to this point so we could play football, and we are very grateful for that.”
