Another day, another injury for the Ravens. During Tuesday’s practice rookie offensive lineman, Nico Siragusa tore his ACL, MCL and PCL while running. The injuries will sideline Siragusa for the 2017 season.
The Ravens fourth round pick was running with the first team on Tuesday before going down with the injury. The rookie was unable to put any weight on his leg and had to be carted off the field. Baltimore already had a lack of depth on the offensive line prior to Siragusa’s injury, so there is definitely a cause for concern at this point.
Expect the Ravens to make some moves in the coming weeks to rebuild that depth. However, there could be some complications due to the fact that IR is not an option at this point in the preseason.
This marks the seventh player that the Ravens have lost for the entire 2017 season and we haven’t even made it to the first preseason game. Most of these have been due to injury but there have been other unforeseen loses like Darren Waller’s suspension and John Urschel’s retirement.
Despite all the injuries, head coach John Harbaugh is not concerned. “You don’t lament that stuff, you just forge ahead,” said Harbaugh. “I’m very confident in our guys and the team we’re going to have. I’m not worried about that one bit.”
