As the Baltimore Ravens prepare to defend their AFC North championship this season, they still have issues to sort out before the start of the regular season.

On defense, they will begin the season without linebacker Terrell Suggs, who suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon during the offseason.

Not only did Suggs lead the team in sacks (14) in 2011, he was the emotional leader to one of the top defenses in the NFL.

On offense, Joe Flacco and company will continue to try to prove they are more than just a one-dimensional team.

So, with the start of the regular season a little more than a week away, here are some updates to the Ravens' depth chart:

Stock Up

Offense

Bobbie Williams - The former Cincinnati Bengal has won the starting job at left guard after being signed by the Ravens during the offseason.

Tandon Doss - The second-year wide receiver from Indiana University is second on the depth chart behind Anquan Boldin after a decent preseason. In the finale against St. Louis, Doss caught three passes for 25 yards.

Defense

Albert McCllelan - The second-year player from Marshall appears to have earned the starting job at right outside linebacker after it was determined rookie Courtney Upshaw was uncertain for the opener.

Upshaw has been impressive during training camp in 2012, but it appears he has aggravated an injury to his right shoulder that he suffered this offseason.

Stock Down

Billy Cundiff - The former Ravens placekicker was cut by Baltimore earlier in the week after being beat out by rookie Justin Tucker.

Sergio Kindle - The second-year linebacker from Texas has struggled this preseason, and coach Harbaugh has hinted that he would need to see something special from Kindle in the finale vs St. Louis in order to make the final roster.
