Wednesday Injury Status Report: Ravens v. Browns

Jacoby v Browns

Today the Baltimore Ravens placed rookie wide receiver Aaron Mellette on Injured Reserve to make room for the recently acquired RB Shaun Draughn. Draughn is a backup runner with some return capabilities and filled a need, one created by the ill-advised release of RB Bobby Rainey on August 31.

The move of Mellette to IR is a curious one but if you’ve paid attention to Ravens’ roster maneuvering at this time of year, mystery injuries often surface when the team likes a player but doesn’t want to risk losing him during the waiver process before he can be parked on the practice squad.

The move may also save recently re-acquired WR Tandon Doss – at least until Jacoby Jones returns.

Here’s the Injury Report Status for Wednesday (today).

 

BALTIMORE RAVENS

OUT: WR Jacoby Jones (knee)

DID NOT PARTICIPATE: C Ryan Jensen (foot), WR Deonte Thompson (foot), DT Brandon Williams (toe)

LIMITED PARTICIPATION: DT Art Jones (illness – NFI); RB Bernard Pierce (thigh)

FULL PARTICIPATION: T Michael Oher (ankle)

NOTE: Don’t expect any of the DNP’s to play this Sunday.

 

CLEVELAND BROWNS

DID NOT PARTICIPATE: G Shawn Lauvao (ankle), DL Ahtyba Rubin (calf), DB T.J. Ward (shoulder)

LIMITED PARTICIPATION: DB Buster Skrine (shoulder), LB Barkevious Mingo (lung), WR Travis Benjamin (thigh)

NOTE: Mingo, the Browns first round pick in 2013 was cleared to play this week after missing the season opener against the Miami Dolphins.

 

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, at work, or elsewhere, call Seigel, Tully & Furrer at 410-669-9300.
