OL - BAL - Questionable
Week 2 Outlook
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.
The Baltimore Ravens have activated LT Ronnie Stanley off of the PUP list, and he is now available to practice with the team, per Ian Rappoport of NFL Network.
Stanley missed 10 games last season after fracturing his ankle. He is a former all-pro and one of the NFL's premier LTs. The team locked him up on a five-year extension last season. He should bounce back and continue to be a stalwart at the position.
The Ravens have placed left tackle Ronnie Stanley on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he recovers from an ankle injury.
Stanley missed a combined eight games over his first four seasons before missing 10 last year. He underwent a second surgery this past March and is widely viewed as a top tackle in the NFL. The 27-year-old had his talents recognized by being named a Pro Bowler and First-Team All-Pro in 2019.
It is uncertain if Ronnie Stanley will be ready for training camp.
After undergoing a second surgery back in March, Stanley has since been cleared to resume running. He is still on track to be ready for the start of the season, but might not be participating early in training camp.
Baltimore Ravens All-Pro LT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) has undergone a second surgery on his left ankle after suffering the season-ending injury in November.
Stanley received a five-year, $98.5 million contract extension days before suffering a nasty left ankle injury against the Steelers. He has now undergone two successful surgeries and is expected back for the 2021 season opener. However, Ravens RT Orlando Brown Jr. filled in at left tackle during Stanley's absence at the end of 2020 and performed at a very high-level. Brown has gone on record previously stating that he is only looking for opportunities to play at left tackle full-time after Baltimore has expressed interest in returning him to right tackle. Protecting mobile star quarterback Lamar Jackson is the top priority, so expect Baltimore to develop a contingency plan in the hypothetical scenario where Stanley is not fully recovered by Week 1 and Brown ends up leaving to play left tackle for another team in 2021.
