SCOUTING REPORT

BALTIMORE’S RECORD: 3-4
LAST GAME: Lost 24-16 at Minnesota

OVERVIEW: The Ravens came into the season hoping to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2014, but they have had to overcome a rash of injuries. Baltimore has 15 players currently on injured reserve, including perennial Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda and free agent acquisition Danny Woodhead. A perfect example of the kind of season it’s been for the Ravens came against the Vikings on Sunday when they started without wide receivers Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Mike Wallace then left the game with a concussion. The Ravens still have plenty of talent on defense, led by six-time Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs, who leads the team with 4.5 sacks and four-time Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle. Running back Alex Collins, who played at South Plantation High and was the 2012 Miami Dolphins High School Player of the Year, led Baltimore with 365 rushing yards and has an impressive 5.9 per-carry average.

KEY NEW FACES: CB Marlon Humphrey (draft-1st round), OLB Tyus Bowser (draft-2nd), DE Chris Wormley (draft-3rd), OLB Tim Williams (draft-3rd), CB Brandon Carr (Dallas), RB Alex Collins (Seattle), WR Jeremy Maclin (Kansas City),

KEY VETERANS GONE: FB Kyle Juszczyk, TE Dennis Pitta, WR Steve Smith, WR Kamar Aiken, LB Zach Orr, DT Timmy Jernigan, CB Tavon Young, DE Lawrence Guy, G Marshal Yanda (IR), DE Brent Urban (IR), Kenneth Dixon (IR), RB Danny Woodhead (IR), LB Albert McClellan (IR),
