Baltimore Ravens sitting QB Joe Flacco for entire preseason

Baltimore Ravens sitting QB Joe Flacco for entire preseason

Unfortunately, he injured his thumb in last night's game against Washington. He didn't make any big mistakes, but left some throws on the field. Still, West was easily the best Ravens' player on that side of the ball.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh stressed the positive after quarterback Ryan Mallett's rough performance in Thursday's preseason opener.

When Mallett's day was done at halftime, the Ravens led, 13-0, so mission accomplished. He was all over the place on most of his throws, connecting on 9 of 18 passes for 58 yards in one half of work, and he didn't complete a pass longer than 11 yards.

"We started off a little slow, got it going a little bit, got the run game going, got the pass going", Mallett said.

The final sale is expected to be completed on Friday, and includes a slew of investors along with Sherman and Jeter. Jeter's group bid about $1.3 billion to buy the team from Jeffrey Loria but has not yet raised the money needed.

"We need [to be] more consistent", Mallett said.

The team's top three wideouts - Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin and Breshad Perriman (hamstring) - sat out, meaning Michael Campanaro, Chris Moore and undrafted rookies Tim White and Quincy Adeboyejo were Mallett's top targets.

Meanwhile, the Ravens say offensive lineman Alex Lewis will miss the 2017 season with a shoulder injury. They don't have many good in-house options beyond that. In the last two-plus weeks, the Ravens have lost three offensive linemen projected to either be starters or top reserves for the entire season: Lewis; starting center candidate John Urschel, who made a decision to retire on the morning of the team's first training camp workout; and rookie fourth-round guard Nico Siragusa, who tore up his knee in practice.
