OL - BAL
Week 3 Outlook
Baltimore Ravens All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley is not practicing on Wednesday due to an ankle injury.
Head coach John Harbaugh indicated that he had expected Stanley to practice, so this is a situation worth monitoring. Stanley being forced to miss any time would, at the very least, represent a downgrade for the Ravens potent rushing attack. His absence would also likely mean an increase in pressures from J.J. Watt and company this Sunday.
With the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens have selected Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley.
Stanley was a 39 game starter at Notre Dame, 13 on the right side and 26 on the left. He returned for his senior year at Notre Dame after being projected as a top 10 overall selection in the 2015 NFL draft, and refined his play to the point that the Ravens seem confident bringing him on to challenge incumbent tackle Eugene Monroe protecting QB Joe Flacco's blindside. Stanley has excellent measurables for the position and is a highly effective pass protector. Provided he can bring some nasty to his run blocking, Stanley could prove to be a generational talent for Baltimore.
