FRIDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens @ Lions

doomsuggssack

The Ravens got some good news on Friday, as Elvis Dumervil returned to the practice field for the first time in over two weeks (Doom hadn’t practiced since prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Thanksgiving night). Dumervil was listed as a limited participant in practice, but the fact that he was out there at all should give Ravens fans some hope that he’ll be able to lace them up on Monday night in Detroit.

The Ravens defense, which had been at the top of the league in sacks (and which had recorded at least two sacks in 19 consecutive games) has not brought down the quarterback in two straight games, failing to sack either Ben Roethlisberger or Matt Cassel even once.

Detroit’s Matthew Stafford has been sacked only 15 times this season, the fewest of any quarterback with over 300 attempts (Peyton Manning has been sacked 16 times and has 393 attempts; nobody else is really close to as low as Stafford). Stafford has been sacked one or zero times in 10 of his 13 games this year. To compare, Joe Flacco has been sacked 41 times, second-most in the NFL.

It’s safe to say that the Ravens will need all hands on deck in the pass-rushing department.

Here are the complete injury reports from Friday’s practices in Owings Mills and Detroit:
