  Ravens CB Chris Westry suffers torn meniscus The injuries keep coming for the Ravens. Cornerback Chris Westry is expected to miss at least a month after suffering a torn lateral meniscus, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler (and passed along by ESPN’s Jamison Hensley). © Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports Westry, a former undrafted free agent, ended up playing the third-most snaps among Ravens cornerbacks on Sunday, collecting three tackles. The team was already relying on the bottom of their depth chart after losing cornerback Marcus Peters to a season-ending injury, and Westry’s latest injury is only going to make matters worse.

Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson has starred in handfuls of memorable highlights since he first entered the NFL in 2018, but perhaps his most acrobatic came in the fourth quarter of this past Sunday's thrilling 36-35 win over the Kansas City Chiefs:

According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, Jackson admitted Wednesday he's not quite physically at 100% after his flip and ahead of Sunday's matchup at the Detroit Lions.

Daily Fantasy Week 2: Sunday night picks for Chiefs-Ravens

  Daily Fantasy Week 2: Sunday night picks for Chiefs-Ravens This week might be the best overall matchup of the young season with a battle between two AFC powerhouses as the defending conference champions, the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens, who are still reeling from their surprise upset loss in Las Vegas in Week 1. Depending on the type of contest we’re creating rosters for, we’ll need to adjust our player selection strategy. Once we understand the type of roster we need to be building for the specific contest you’re trying to take down, we can then focus on player selection, working to identify combinations of players that could all hit their respective ceilings together, based on specific game environ

"I'm kind of sore," Jackson explained. "I didn't want to tell Coach [John Harbaugh] because Coach would probably [have] said something to me about flipping next time. I don't know; I'd probably do it again though."

And what of Harbaugh? Per Hensley, the coach only learned about the flip that Jackson failed to safely land once his wife told him about the play after the fact. Harbaugh added he'll permit Jackson to keep that maneuver in his arsenal as long as the signal-caller doesn't fumble and puts six points on the scoreboard.

Jackson is already a one-time NFL Most Valuable Player who puts his body at risk each time he scrambles from the pocket and down the field, so the 24-year-old may want to avoid completing any and all flips without the aid of a cushioned landing pad moving forward.
