Ravens HC John Harbaugh talks about best way to navigate injuries with upcoming schedule

The Baltimore Ravens play at home on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and then travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on just five days later on Thursday night. It’s a quick turnaround for every team in the NFL, and it can sometimes be difficult to figure out how to manage injuries for both weeks in order to find balance..

Baltimore has dealt with many different injuries over the course of the 2022 season, with some of those being how to manage players coming back from 2021 ailments. When asked about giving more rest days coming up, Harbaugh talked about how it’s something that the team is keeping in mind.

“[We’re] definitely thinking about that. I don’t know if it will hold anyone out for one or the other game or not, but that’s definitely something that’s kind of on my mind in terms of what’s the best way to approach it.”

Player safety is the number one priority for every coach in the NFL.  The Ravens are still dealing with a lot of players being banged up, so having rest days to avoid any other major injury is a smart thing for any organization.
