Ravens Third-Round Pick FB Bronson Kaufusi Suffers Broken Ankle; Likely Done for Season

Bronson Kaufusi

The Ravens, who were destroyed all season long by injuries in 2015, got bad news on the injury front on Thursday, as they lost on of their draft picks likely for the season.

The pick is third round selection Bronson Kaufusi, who suffered a broken ankle and will have to undergo surgery.

Kaufusi was expected to have a rotational role this season, helping revamp the pass rush from last season. He’s a goliath of a man, coming in at 6’7? and 285 lbs. He’s also a rather mature rookie at 25 years old and this setback isn’t the way he wanted to start out his NFL career.

Luckily, the Ravens have good depth along the defensive line. Brent Urban, Kapron Lewis-Moore, Carl Davis and Lawrence Guy are returning defensive lineman who played well last season. Urban may have the most potential out of the bunch, as he has a similar frame and style of play as Kaufusi.

Kaufusi now has time to heal and add some add some weight and muscle to his frame, as Coach John Harbaugh alluded to. His lower body could use some strengthening and flexibility.
