Ravens Banged Up as They Shoot for the Playoffs

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports! put out an interesting article today on the health conditions of the playoff contenders.  He has the Ravens listed as a team in “Serious Condition” as they make a run at the postseason.  Here is his thoughts:

What’s remarkable about the Ravens is that they have already suffered enough injuries to their defense that they shouldn’t be playing this well (they are No. 2 overall and No. 3 in points allowed). Baltimore has lost nose tackle Kelly Gregg (a vastly underrated player), safety Dawan Landry, cornerback Chris McAlister and backups Dwan Edwards and Tavares Gooden. Yet the defense dominates like nothing has gone wrong. Still, you have to wonder what will happen if there’s another injury or two. On offense, the Ravens have been fortunate not to lose anyone truly significant (wide receiver Demetrius Williams and guard Marshal Yanda), but it’s all starting to add up. Running back Willis McGahee has been battling injuries all season. Fortunately for them, there’s great depth at that spot.
