RAVENS NOTEBOOK

October 15, 2008|By JAMISON HENSLEY

The Ravens placed starting guard Marshal Yanda and backup linebacker Tavares Gooden on injured reserve yesterday.

Yanda, who injured his knee in the final two minutes of Sunday's 31-3 loss at Indianapolis, is expected to have surgery soon.

Gooden, a rookie third-round pick, had played in four games this season.

To replace those players, the Ravens signed tight end Edgar Jones and wide receiver Ernie Wheelwright from the practice squad.

Two rookies - defensive back Derrick Roberson (Rutgers) and guard Brian Johnson (LSU) - were added to the practice squad.

Ogden to be honored

Jonathan Ogden, the first draft choice in Ravens history and an 11-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, will be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor at M&T Bank Stadium on Oct. 26 at halftime of the Ravens-Oakland Raiders game.

Ogden retired in June after 12 seasons. He has more starts (176) than any other Raven and is second to Matt Stover in games played (196 to 177).

Ogden will be the fifth Raven to be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor, on the facade at the front of M&T Bank Stadium's upper deck. The eight Hall of Fame members of the Baltimore Colts are also in the Ravens' Ring of Honor.
