The blocking scheme the Ravens will use today will be the same as last season, according to a team source, who also said that both running backs, Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, still have not fully recovered from injuries suffered in the preseason.
According to the source, several players met with Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday following the Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens have the 27th-ranked rushing game in the NFL averaging only 72.7 yards per game. They had only 47 yards rushing against Green Bay.
At the meeting, the players told Harbaugh that they were unhappy with the new blocking scheme instituted by run game coordinator Juan Castillo and they wanted to go back to last year's scheme. According to the source, Castillo has lost influence in "the room" and Harbaugh told the team they were going back to the formula that helped them win the Super Bowl last year.
