When the Ravens traded for Eugene Monroe two months ago, the belief was that he would immediately upgrade the left tackle position and the hope was that he would become one of the team's best linemen. It was a rough start for Monroe. He allowed a sack against the Green Bay Packers in his first start at left tackle, according to Pro Football Focus, and was beaten for four in his first five games here, including two in the Week 11 loss to the Chicago Bears. Coach John Harbaugh publicly said he could play better.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

Now that Eugene Monroe has been on the roster for an entire week, the Ravens' new left offensive tackle declared he's prepared to start Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. All signs point toward Monroe's getting the start, although no status change has been announced. While Monroe lined up at left tackle with the offensive line Wednesday, Bryant McKinnie watched his replacement from the sideline. “I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of what's going on,” Monroe said. “I'm ready to go. I'll start getting in there with the guys, building on a relationship on the line and be ready.

For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

The Ravens have acquired offensive tackle Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange  for multiple draft pick compensation, according to league sources. A source said the Ravens will be sending third-day draft picks to the Jaguars for Monroe and that the basic framework of the deal is in place. Monroe is scheduled to travel to Baltimore on Wednesday morning, according to a source, and must take and pass a physical for the trade to become official. The Ravens are currently at the 53-man roster limit, so they would have to make a roster move to create a spot for Monroe.

Although Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe said his arthroscopic knee surgery went well last week, he was noncommittal on when he'll return to practice. Monroe declined to say if he completely tore or partially tore his meniscus and said he has no timetable on when he'll be able to run again. Monroe is expected to miss roughly a month, according to a source. "It just depends," Monroe said. "I'm doing everything I can to get back as soon as it's possible. I just come in and work every day to get healthy.

Veteran left tackle Eugene Monroe and cornerback Jimmy Smith were the Ravens' only new absentees at practice Friday, while wide receiver Steve Smith was present at practice but had the day off. Meanwhile, five players who missed Thursday's practice were back in action: nose tackle Haloti Ngata, linebacker Terrell Suggs, wide receiver Jacoby Jones, running back Justin Forsett, and wide receiver Jeremy Butler. Butler was the only one who missed because of an injury, while the other four were given days off to rest.

In five years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, left tackle Eugene Monroe never experienced a winning season. Over his last 20 games played, he's celebrated just two victories. So when Monroe walked to the Ravens' indoor practice facility Thursday and spotted the giant banner of the Lombardi Trophy that hangs from the far wall, a whirlwind couple of days came into focus. "Coming to a situation like this where they're winning is unique," Monroe said after participating in the Ravens' morning walk-through.

Growing up in Plainfield, N.J., Ravens left offensive tackle Eugene Monroe would rise at dawn whenever his father was heading out for his latest contractor job. As the youngest of 10 brothers and five sisters, Monroe quickly became accustomed to the value of a blue-collar work ethic and the importance of sacrifice. They were qualities he primarily learned from his parents, John Monroe and Stephanie Green. When Monroe's father died, his uncle, Eugene Green, became his most influential mentor.

Days after Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe was barely able to hobble back to the huddle against the Cleveland Browns, he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to address the issue. Although Monroe isn't expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday Monroe won't play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and could miss additional games. With the left tackle situation having reached emergency status, Monroe will be replaced in the starting lineup by undrafted rookie James Hurst.

Eight Ravens didn't practice on Wednesday, including six starters. The only players not expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though, are offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, defensive end Chris Canty and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Monroe is out for at least a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery prior to the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Canty had successful wrist surgery and is out for two to three weeks, barring a setback, according to a source.

Welcome to the Ravens Ten-Pack, where I'll go medium depth on 10 Ravens topics that came from the previous week's game. This was initially a Tuesday thing, but now it's a Monday thing, so read ahead for notes on Jimmy Smith, C.J. Mosley, the Ravens' offensive gameplan, and their inability to deal with pressure. 1. The early-game decision-making by both John Harbaugh and Colts coach Chuck Pagano was telling Sunday. The Colts went for it on fourth down on the opening drive, and the Ravens opted against a field goal on fourth down in the second quarter - which resulted in a silly play-action sack for quarterback Joe Flacco.

Remember when everybody wanted Juan Castillo run out of town, when the run-game coordinator was a symbol of all that went wrong with the Ravens last year? This offseason, Ravens coach John Harbaugh changed his title to offensive line coach, and stuck by Castillo, calling him one of the best offensive line coaches in the league. Harbaugh's faith has been rewarded. Joe Flacco has been sacked only three times in four games. Only Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton , who has yet to be sacked, has been taken down less, and the Bengals have played one fewer game than the Ravens.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: Was there any doubt that Steve Smith was going to have a huge game playing against his former team? The second Smith ran under Joe Flacco's deflected pass and took it 61 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter, you knew it was going to be a long day for the Panthers. Flacco played another strong game and the offensive line continues to impress.

Led by guards Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda and featuring undrafted rookie James Hurst at left tackle, the Ravens' offensive line held its opponent without a sack for the third straight game and paved the way for another strong performance by the team's running backs. The five-man line, which features only Yanda in the same role as he played last year, has become a strength for the team after spending 2013 as the offense's scapegoat. "It's been really good," quarterback Joe Flacco said after Sunday's 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fulfilling their top free agent priority, the  Ravens  have agreed to a five-year deal with left tackle  Eugene Monroe , the first step in an expected offensive line makeover.  Monroe, whom the Ravens acquired from the  Jacksonville Jaguars  in October for fourth- and fifth-round picks, was considered one of the top left tackles on the free-agent market. However, the Ravens were able to lock him up to a five-year, $37.5 million deal not long after the market opened at 4 p.m. According to a source, the deal includes an $11 million signing bonus and $19 million in guarantee money.

The Ravens made it official, ruling out rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and offensive tackle Eugene Monroe for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Jernigan has a meniscus injury and did not practice all week. Monroe had arthroscopic knee surgery and could be sidelined for at least a few games. Meanwhile, veteran defensive end Chris Canty is questionable after not practicing all week due to knee and calf injuries. He's regarded as a game-time decision and the Ravens could start DeAngelo Tyson in his place.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.
