MIAMI, FL – Here are the latest injury updates so far in the NFL as Week 8 got underway with another loaded schedule on Sunday, November 1.http://gty.im/1283379301
Baltimore Ravens will have to complete their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers without left tackle Ronnie Stanley after he was carted off the field late in the first quarter with a lower left leg injury.
Ravens medical staffs were seen placing an air cast on Stanley’s leg and it looked as though he was in pain for several minutes.
Today’s injury comes only two days after Stanley, a top rated pass blocker this season, signed a five-year, $98.75 million extension that includes $70.9 million in guarantees.
Baltimore is now without two of its starting offensive linemen in with right guard Tyre Phillips, who left earlier with an ankle injury, also on the injury table.
In the same game, Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson left the action and was taken to the blue medical tent with what seems to be a hamstring injury. He, however, returned after the first half niggle.
Meanwhile, Buffalo Bills starting center Mitch Morse suffered the fifth concussion of his career against the New England Patriots. He will not return to Sunday’s game.
Morse, who missed time in training camp with a concussion, was sidelined for six weeks in 2019 due to similar problems.
Adam Humphries of the Tennessee Titans was carted from the game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a head injury. He will not return.
Humphries was smashed down by Jessie Bates, who delivered the hit in the head/neck area after the wide receiver made a big catch between two defenders.
Humphries was down for a while, but got up and sat on the cart himself instead of being taken off by a stretcher. Good sign, although he could miss a few weeks.
Detroit Lions’ Kenny Golladay left the game against the Indianapolis Colts with a hip injury.
The wide receiver went to the locker room early late in the first half and was listed him as questionable to return by the Lions.
