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.

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.

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)

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.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is in his bargain-basement mode these days. Over the weekend the Ravens added two new players, which got a lot of fans excited, but neither center Jeremy Zuttah, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, nor former St. Louis Rams safety Darian Stewart should make a dramatic difference to the Ravens this season. It appears that Newsome is filling in some gaps, like finding another backup running back or a rotational defensive lineman, but the major lifting is over until the NFL draft in May. Oh sure, Zuttah is better than Gino Gradkowski, who started at center last season for the Ravens.

The NFL's annual free-agency spending spree officially gets underway Tuesday, with the Ravens in a slightly different position than in the recent past. An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007.

Every offseason, there is handwringing about who the Ravens lose, and that will likely start again on March 11 when free agency opens and guys like Arthur Jones , James Ihedigbo and Michael Oher likely become the latest players to join the annual offseason exodus out of the organization. But here's a question worth pondering: how many times have the Ravens actually lost a player or potential free agent that they made a significant effort to keep? It's happened before, but not often.

INDIANAPOLIS - Standing behind the blocking drills during last month's Senior Bowl, Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith watched Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin closely as he manhandled pass rushers. Whether it was because Martin was the only lineman to consistently handle Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald or because he stonewalled Stanford defensive end Trent Murphy and Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, Martin forged a lasting impression. "I think Zack Martin did an outstanding job," Smith said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

As my colleague Peter Schmuck pointed out in a column earlier this week , you often have to read between the lines at the “State of the Ravens” address to learn more about the front office's offseason intentions. I'll attempt to do that below: General manager Ozzie Newsome offering the reminder that the organization is not afraid to let go of good football players when asked about rush linebacker Terrell Suggs ' status confirms what most people have long expected: It's going to be pretty much impossible for the Ravens to keep Suggs at his current contract , which carries with it a $12.4 million salary cap hit for the 2014 season.

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.

Although tight end Ed Dickson acknowledged that his chances of returning as an unrestricted free agent is probably a long shot, he made a sales pitch for the Ravens to do everything they can to hold onto free agent tight end Dennis Pitta. Pitta caught 20 passes for 169 yards and one touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco in four games since returning from a hip injury. “No. 5 [Flacco] and No. 88 [Pitta] have a connection,” Dickson said. “It's like that John Stockton and [Karl]
