Despite getting blown out by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens suffered a lot more than a 47-29 loss. Ravens’ star player and Super Bowl XLVII “hero” Jacoby Jones suffered an apparent MCL sprain after accidentally colliding with teammate Brynden Trawick while trying to catch a punt early in the second quarter.
BREAKING: @CliftonBrownCSN confirms Ravens WR Jacoby Jones has sprained his MCL and will miss 4-6 weeks. Details: http://t.co/2ZDuzhiZYr

Clifton Brown of CSN has reported that Jones’s return is doubtful but is expected to be sidelined without surgery for 4-6 weeks. Marlon Brown is the only player listed as an understudy for Jones but their is six other active receivers if they needed to be pulled up. Gerrard Sheppard would also be able to cover Jones during his absence, Sheppard has a spot on the practice squad and signed with the Ravens as a rookie free agent in May of this year.
But Jones will most likely remain on the 53-man roster. Short-term injured reserve, which would knock Jones out for at least eight weeks, isn’t an option because the one-per-team designation was used earlier this week on tight end Dennis Pitta.

Although the Ravens have been taking hits left and right to their starting lineup, the speedy recovery of Jones will be well awaited for by fans, teammates, and coaches.

The Baltimore Ravens did a bird’s cage full of things wrong
last night against the Denver Broncos, missed coach's challenge, stupid unsportsmanlike
conduct penalties and costly dropped passes (one even for a sure touchdown). The one thing the Ravens could not control
were injures to two, key offensive players, Jacoby Jones and Michael Oher.

Pro Football Talk reports that the Ravens WR Jacoby Jones is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with an MCL sprained that he suffered during Thursday night’s opening loss to the Broncos.
Jones was in the process of calling for a fair catch when rookie free agent S Brynden Trawick unknowingly ran right into him. Jones was able to limp off the field, but was clearly in pain.
Not quite yet. Although the game was incredible feat getting a little revenge on the Super Bowl champions, which entailed the 49-27 score, the most the Baltimore Ravens have ever given up in a game, there were a lot of “rookie” mistakes that still need to be resolved before the Broncos can be considered a Super Bowl caliber team, although they are one of the top contenders...
Welcome to the 2013 season, folks. The Broncos put it to the Ravens in the season opener on Thursday Night Football (or Sunday Night Football on Thursday Night or whatever it was called). I’ve already gone into some detail on some shining performances from the likes of Julius Thomas and other under-the-radar players. But, this […]The post Peyton Manning was a monster for the...

Peyton Manning won the Poster War. Manning was hanging in banner form back turned to his enemy pictured in the classic quarterback pose a glove missing from his right passing hand.
The other poster controversially hanging outside the stadium that Denver-area taxpayers and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen built was Joe Flacco. He represented the bane of what Denver fans wish for.
Here are four fantasy revelations from the Broncos' 49-27 thumping of the Ravens on Thursday, which included an NFL-record-tying performance from Peyton Manning.
1. Even in hindsight, it's hard to feel guilty about Manning's No. 8 ranking for the week
Of his nine previous season openers, Manning (462 yards passing, seven TDs vs. Baltimore) had thrown for 2,529 yards...
You know when you are playing Madden and you are unstoppable, well last night Peyton Manning has that feeling. At least in the second half. Believe it or not the Denver Broncos were actually losing at halftime 17-14. If you stopped watching the game after the first quarter when you saw the miscommunication between Peyton Manning and the Broncos wide outs, you would be stunned when...
Broncos fans have to be encouraged by the performance of Peyton Manning and the Denver offense, particularly in the second half of the opener Thursday night. Manning joined rare company in having thrown for seven touchdowns in a game – only five others have accomplished that feat.
Manning had closed in on the mark twice previously, tossing six TDs against Detroit in 2004 and against...
After Peyton Manning set the football world on fire with his seven-touchdown performance on Thursday night, the NFL season is now in full swing as Sunday will present the first slate of games for the 2013 season.

After Peyton Manning joined Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, YA Tittle and Joe Kapp as the only NFL quarterbacks to throw seven touchdowns in a single game, Eli Manning chimed in on his big brother's remarkable feat.
The New York Giants quarterback downplayed Thursday night's brilliant performance by Peyton as only a younger sibling could.

The editor at the Columbus Dispatch obviously was asleep at the wheel when they were going through this article talking about the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game. The title of the article said “Elway Throws For Seven Touchdown passes” and the first two words of the article are “Peyton Manning.” Then the next paragraph starts with “Elway” and the following one...
