Osemele Expects to Start Tonight

Has K.O. broken into the starting lineup?

Rookie offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele said he’ll earn a start this Monday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

When asked if he would start, Osemele replied, “I think so, looks like it.” He also said he would probably see more time at tackle than guard. In Baltimore’s first two preseason games, Osemele was the starting right tackle with Michael Oher at left tackle.

With Oher and Osemele in the starting lineup, that moves Bryant McKinnie, who started every game in 2011 at left tackle, to a backup spot. Earlier in the week, the Ravens restructured McKinnie’s contract from a $3.2 million base to a $2.2 million base with a $1 million incentive.
