The Baltimore Ravens’ offensive line is off to a shaky start.
Six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk had surgery on his left knee and his status is in doubt. Offensive guard Marshal Yanda is sidelined with back spasms.
Offensive tackles Michael Oher, Oniel Cousins and rookie Jah Reid allowed six sacks during a 13-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles to open the preseason.
Can the Ravens rebound and have an effective line?
“We’re going to try to be,” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. “We really don’t know yet. We are going to know more in the next two or three weeks.”
The O-line is the core of the Ravens' running game and if the unit is struggling, it is going to impact Ray Rice.
