The Browns, Steelers, and Bengals have all suffered big setbacks with injuries this season in some shape or form. But for the Ravens, they have been the team most unscathed for once in that department. There is no doubt they have dealt with injuries and lost significant players, but they have the ability to overcome those players and have not had the collective downfall that many of the fellow AFC North have experienced.
But this week, they did experience some injuries. Wide receiver Devin Duvernay suffered a back injury and will be placed on injured reserve. That injury will force Duvernay to miss the rest of the regular season, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh did leave the door open for Duvernay to return for the run in the playoffs.
The good news for them is that safety Kyle Hamilton, who suffered an MCL sprain, seems on track to either miss just this week or no games at all. But with this week’s game against the Jaguars potentially allowing them to clinch a playoff berth, his absence would be notable if he could not play.
Still, it is far less than what other teams, like the Browns, have experienced. Following a massive victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team lost three more key defensive contributors for the rest of the season. The most notable is Grant Delpit, who has surgery on a groin injury he suffered. But defensive tackle Mo Hurst and edge rusher Ogbo Okoronkwo will also miss the rest of the season with torn pec muscles.
