There are some issues on both sides here.
The Washington Redskins aren’t quite sure what to expect out of their offensive line and with a quarterback like Robert Griffin III, that kind of issue is a pretty big issue. In fact, it led to a concussion in last week’s preseason matchup against Detroit but, according to ESPN, the injury-prone QB could still start on Saturday night – if he’s cleared by a neurologist. Still, it would be helpful if the Redskins o-line could block a little bit better. Or at all. Griffin wasn’t just concussed last week, he was also sacked three times on eight dropbacks and consistently challenged on pass plays.
Meanwile, on the Baltimore Ravens side, injuries are taking their own toll. First-round draft pick Breshad Perriman has been sidelined with a knee injury throughout the preseason, leaving a very large hole in the Ravens deep-route options. Still offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is confident in his remaining receiver options and hopes to see Baltimore go deep on Saturday night, saying, “Our guys our fast enough. [If] you want the deep ball in the National Football League, you don’t have to go by your guy to beat him. The guy can be on top of you, and you can back-shoulder throw. That’s a vertical throw, too, and we [had] a bunch of that in the games, in the practices anyways.”
