OL - BAL
LT Ronnie Stanley will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. He had season-ending surgery last season, only playing in one game.
The Baltimore Ravens have not been able to have Stanley much since his All-Pro season in 2019. The former first-rounder has played seven games in the last two years as ankle issues have continued to linger over time. Head coach John Harbaugh expressed optimism about Stanley's status, but this move indicates he needs more recovery time. The Ravens have until the start of the regular season to activate Stanley before he will be forced to miss the first few weeks.
Ravens OL Ronnie Stanley will be undergoing season-ending surgery on his ankle and has been placed on IR.
Unfortunately, the Ravens injury woes continue as their star OT is out for the season. The Ravens played just fine without him on Sunday, though, in a 34-6 victory over a young Chargers team. Stanley hopes to be fully ready going into the 2022 season.
Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley will continue to rehab and is not considering surgery at this time.
This is good news for a Ravens team that will need their offensive line intact if they are to make any noise in the playoffs. Stanley has been missed the last two games with the injury and has been dealing with the issue since last season. Alejandro Villanueva will continue to start on the left side in his absence, with Patrick Mekari making starts on the right. Baltimore may look to upgrade their offensive line depth before the trade deadline.
Baltimore Ravens LT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, per Jamison Hensley.
Stanley signed a massive five-year, $98.7 million contract extension with the Ravens during the 2020 season but was injured shortly afterward. He injured his ankle again during their Week 1 loss to Las Vegas, leaving the team shifting their offensive line around to accommodate Lamar Jackson. Since the line adjustment seemed to work in an upset win over Kansas City in Week 2, Stanley's recovery becomes less alarming. Continue monitoring his status into the weekend in a favorable road matchup against a bad Detroit Lions defense in Week 3.
Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, LT Ronnie Stanley will likely be away from the Ravens this week and potentially longer as he is set to undergo medical testing for a possible injury yet to be specified.
Stanley is one of the most experienced members on the offensive line for the Ravens but given his struggles in Week 1 vs the Raiders and his ankle injury in 2020, this is something to keep an eye out for. The fact that there is no timetable for how long these medical tests will take could be of concern. For the time being Alejandro Villanueva will take over the LT spot and Patrick Makari would be next up at RT. For fantasy purposes this obviously negatively impacts the Baltimore offensive line which could further impact the rushing attack and Lamar Jackson.
