Courtney Upshaw was hoping to salvage a disappointing preseason with a good performance against the St. Louis Rams. Instead, the rookie linebacker left the Edward Jones Dome on Thursday night with more questions about his health and more doubts about his availability for the Ravens Sept.10 regular season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Upshaw, who was bothered throughout training camp by a sprained right shoulder, reinjured it in the second quarter of the Ravens 31-17 loss. He jogged off the field favoring his shoulder and he did not return to the game.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that the second-round draft pick, who missed the teams preseason opener and about a week of practice time with the injury, will have a magnetic resonance imaging taken on Friday.
Yeah, Im concerned, Harbaugh said. Well find out tomorrow with an MRI what it is. Source: Baltimore Sun

Ravens brass had a very productive 2008 draft as they secured a franchise QB with the 18th overall pick when they selected Delaware Blue Hen Joe Flacco and then got one of the steals of recent draft memory nabbing Ray Rice in round 2.

Jeff Fisher may have done Baltimore a favor by starting his first team and playing them for most of the first half... it gave Ravens coach John Harbaugh a benchmark for testing the playability of his 2's, 3's and 4's in the final game of the 2012 preseason.Now the cuts the Ravens have to make will at least be based upon relativity to the best St. Louis has to offer.It...
