Baltimore Ravens roster moves
The Baltimore Ravens have released a press release announce a couple roster moves. Here is the release straight from the email.
The Baltimore Ravens placed LB Prescott Burgess on Injured Reserve (thigh) Tuesday afternoon.
Burgess, a sixth-round draft choice by Baltimore in 2007, has seen action in 40 career games. He sustained the injury this past Sunday in the win over Arizona. The 6-foot-3, 253-pounder appeared in three games with the Ravens this season, recording one assisted tackle and two special teams tackles.
In addition, the Ravens made two practice squad changes Tuesday, waiving S Mana Silva and re-signing WR Rodney Bradley.
Burgess was recently re-signed by the Ravens, that story can be found here. It will be interesting to see who the Ravens bring in to fill Burgess’s roster spot. The Ravens can opt to bring someone up from the practice squad or a free agent.
My guess is that the Ravens will bring in a free agent middle linebacker that was recently cut by a team. At this point in the season it will take any player a couple weeks to get up to football speed if they have not been on a team recently.
The Ravens are short on middle linebacker depth now that Burgess is on injured reserve. Dannell Ellerbe has missed time with a thigh injury, leaving Brendon Ayanbadejo as the only reserve middle linebacker.
