We begin our preview of the Ravens' draft possibilities with a look at the interior offensive line, where they need a young starter and where the 2019 class features an array of appealing first-round targets.
Ravens wide receiver John Brown (hamstring), defensive back Anthony Levine Sr. (toe/ankle), outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (hamstring) and cornerback Tavon Young (groin) — all deemed questionable Friday – will play Sunday against the Browns.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco missed practice again Friday because of his right hip injury, leaving rookie Lamar Jackson almost certain to start for a second straight week on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey ensured that the Ravens would not suffer another last-minute, heartbreaking loss to the Cincinnati Bengals by preventing a fourth-down conversion late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-21 win.
The offensive line has been flooded with injuries, but the starting right tackle and left guard say their health will determine if they can return for Sunday’s home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
