Injury to Ravens' Kelechi Osemele 'hurts big time'

November 01, 2013|By Mike Preston | The Baltimore Sun

If the Ravens have to play without left guard Kelechi Osemele for the rest of the season because of a back injury, that hurts big time.

Osemele is big, strong and downright nasty at times.

But after watching him barely being able to walk down in Miami, it's a wonder he has made is this long.

A.Q. Shipley did a nice job filling in for Osemele against the Dolphins, but he doesn't have Osemele's size or power. Jah Reid has Osemele's size, but he isn't athletic or mobile.

The Ravens offensive line has struggled a lot this season, and it won't get better without Osemele, not with the current replacements.
