The Ravens did an admirable job keeping quarterback Joe Flacco upright in last week's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys, surrendering just one sack to outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware. But the guys in front of Flacco may face their toughest test this Sunday when they face the Houston Texans and defensive end J.J. Watt. The second-year pro leads the NFL in sacks with 9½ and has added 15 quarterback hits and 16 tackles for losses. Starting right guard Marshal Yanda discussed Watt's ability, which includes a knack for knocking down passes at the line of scrimmage.

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.

The Ravens confirmed Thursday that starting right guard Marshal Yanda returned to practice. Yanda, a Pro Bowler last year, participated on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday's session because of an injured ankle. Nose tackle Terrence Cody (arm) and rookie strong safety Christian Thompson (thigh) were downgraded to limited participation after not being listed on Wednesday's injury report. Five players who were limited Wednesday - wide receivers Torrey Smith (chest) and Jacoby Jones (ankle)

After three preseason games, the Ravens are back to square one. There were questions about the offensive line as training camp opened, and they surfaced again during Saturday night's 23-17 win against the Washington Redskins in preseason game No. 3 at M&T Bank Stadium. If this was supposed to be the offensive line's showcase performance before the start of the regular season Sept. 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, then the Ravens have a lot of work to do. Ravens coach John Harbaugh is unlikely to start the entire unit next week in the final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, but he has to be concerned.

We won't know for sure until a new collective bargaining agreement is in place, but Ravens guard Marshal Yanda might be an unrestricted free agent when the NFL reopens business. If that's the case, the Ravens will have plenty of competition for the services of Yanda, a versatile and valuable member of their line. Yanda has started 42 games on the Ravens’ offensive line over the past four seasons, and the mysterious ailment that sidelined Jared Gaither forced the Ravens to move him from right guard to right tackle last season.

We've spent a lot of time this year talking about how the NFL seems to be trying to tone down the brutality in football. For the most part, their efforts seem less sincere and more like public relations, because the rules -- which Roger Goodell appears to make up as he goes along -- are enforced in such an arbitrary way, no one seems to know why some hits are deemed illegal while others are celebrated. The truth is, football is brutality. It's stylized violence, and it always has been, whether it was Night Train Lane doing the hitting or James Harrison.

In the preseason, Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron had said that Marshal Yanda had the talent to become one of the best guards in the NFL. Yanda is trying to prove his coach right — at right tackle. Since replacing the injured Jared Gaither at the beginning of the regular season, Yanda has solidified the right side of the offensive line. According to "Pro Football Weekly," Yanda is tied with left guard Ben Grubbs and right guard Chris Chester for the fewest number of penalties committed by a Ravens starting offensive lineman, and he has surrendered just two sacks.

Each Wednesday we'll bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player to help you learn a little more about the team. Today's guest is fourth-year offensive tackle Marshal Yanda, who talks about his development since being thrown into action as a rookie, a devastating knee injury his second year and a hit he made on an unsuspecting Iowa State player while at Iowa that still gets hits on YouTube. Question: Does your recent performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers and LaMarr Woodley a benchmark of sorts in your career?

Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda on Wednesday revealed to reporters that he had emergency surgery on his right leg after the team's 20-14 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 24. The Ravens confirmed Yanda's surgery was on his lower leg and not his thigh. After he got kicked in his lower leg, close to his calf, Yanda developed compartment syndrome, which is the compression of nerves, blood vessels and muscle inside a section of the body. The ensuing pressure inside of his lower leg prevented adequate blood flow to tissues in the area.

A sprained right ankle forced Marshal Yanda to snap a 44-consecutive starts streak dating back to Nov. 29, 2009. Whether the right guard can avoid back-to-back absences is a mystery. Yanda declined to put a percentage on his return for Sunday's regular-season home finale against the New York Giants and said he's unsure of his availability. “We'll see what happens,” he said prior to Wednesday's practice. “We're going to test it out this week and see how it feels.” Yanda, who was replaced in the Ravens' 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos last Sunday, said he felt close to playing, but elected to avoid the risk of aggravating the sore ankle.

It is early in the preseason, so it's OK to dream at this point. After an impressive drive on their only series together as starters, the Ravens had something to smile about Thursday night in the preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers. What if this offensive line can play this well all season? We're not going to get ridiculous here. The Ravens had a 10-play, 80-yard scoring drive that ended with a 2-yard touchdown run by Bernard Pierce on their opening drive. Of course the 49ers had six defensive starters out of the lineup, and their game-day intensity was certainly lacking, but that's not what you look for in preseason game No. 1. On the offensive line, you look for communication and cohesion.

In theory, the West Coast offense doesn't appear to be ideal for an East Coast football team. Gary Kubiak's version, though, might be the perfect fit for the Ravens. The short, quick passes still will be a major staple of their offense, but in Kubiak's system, the running game sets up the pass. When John Elway was the Denver Broncos' quarterback, he won back-to-back Super Bowl s in 1998 and 1999 with Kubiak as the offensive coordinator. Elway expects Kubiak to also be successful in Baltimore, where he will debut as the Ravens' offensive coordinator Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers in their preseason opener.

The Ravens were all smiles after their three-day minicamp last week, which could be an indication of how much confidence they have that they are on the verge of a big turnaround season or just how happy everyone is to get in a little beach time over the next month. It has been a rocky offseason, but the new offense seems to be coming along nicely and most of the off-the-field unpleasantness of the past few months is behind, so coach John Harbaugh has plenty of reason to be upbeat with about four weeks to go before his team opens training camp.

The mood and composition of the Ravens' offensive line have undergone major changes after a frustrating season. Pass rushers often invaded the pocket last year, either knocking quarterback Joe Flacco to the ground or harassing him into rushed throws as he threw a franchise-record 22 interceptions. The running game was stonewalled much of the season. The Ravens averaged just 3.1 yards per carry as running back Ray Rice struggled with injuries and rarely had holes to run through.

Several veteran starters aren't at the Ravens' organized team activity today at team headquarters. That includes outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, nose tackle Haloti Ngata, offensive guard Marshal Yanda, middle linebacker Daryl Smith, outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and defensive end Chris Canty. This marks the second consecutive week that Suggs, Ngata and Canty have missed. Attendance at organized team activities are voluntary under the NFL collective bargaining agreement.

The Ravens picked their first offensive lineman of the draft, selecting Penn State guard John Urschel in the fifth round with the 175th pick. "It feels fantastic," Urschel said. "Believe me, I'm honored and I'm humbled. " Urschel started 24 games at right guard for Penn State over the past two seasons and excelled on and off the field. He was the recipient of the 2013 William V. Campbell Trophy, given to the nation's top scholar-athlete. He graduated with a degree in mathematics, finishing with a 4.0 grade-point average during his Penn State career.

The Ravens were treated pretty well in NFL Network's Top 100 player rankings as voted on by the players. With the top 10 scheduled to be revealed Thursday night, six current Ravens ( Ray Rice , Joe Flacco , Haloti Ngata , Terrell Suggs , Jacoby Jones and Dennis Pitta ) have been included along with three other members of last year's Super Bowl-winning team ( Ed Reed , Bernard Pollard and Anquan Boldin ). However, there was one notable Ravens' omission and it certainly got the attention of starting right tackle Michael Oher . Despite making back-to-back AFC Pro Bowl teams and consistently grading out as one of the league's best offensive guards, Marshal Yanda was not recognized in the top 100, prompting Oher to question why. “Man who votes for the Top 100,” Oher wrote on his Twitter account.

The Ravens will go over numerous scenarios in the days leading up to the NFL draft that might play out in the first round, but they probably won't make a move until they are on the clock with the No. 17 overall pick. And they could trade with another team and move back in the first round. The consensus among most top team executives and so-called experts is that this is a deep draft, and that most of the top 10 to 15 players will be gone when it's time for the Ravens to choose. So unless a highly rated player falls to the Ravens, general manager Ozzie Newsome could decide to move back to a slot between Nos. 24 and 28 in the first round.

The Ravens can't seem to tackle this problem. When it comes to right offensive tackles, they haven't been able to secure one with longevity. They've been through at least 17 starters at that position since the franchise moved from Cleveland to Baltimore for the 1996 season. They've had some big softies like James Atkins and Adam Terry. They've had some fake tough guys like Jah Reid and Tony Pashos. There were some who were over the hill like Willie Anderson, Leon Searcy and Erik Williams, and others who couldn't hold the snap count past one like Michael Oher and Ethan Brooks.
