Mosley's knee issue appears to be a bone bruise and his status for Week 3 action remains up in the air, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports.
Although coach John Harbaugh avoided the specifics, the Ravens coach was happy to reveal that the knee injury is merely a bone bruise. There's no timetable for a return, but Baltimore seems optimistic that Mosley will be back sooner rather than later having steered clear of any structural damage.
Mosley (knee) is doubtful to return to Thursday's contest against the Bengals due to a bone bruise.
Mosley came up gimpy after a play in the first quarter. On a positive note, initial reports suggest that no structural damage was sustained in his knee, so the injury may not be long term. As long as Mosley remains off the field, Kenny Young and Chris Board are both candidates to receive additional playing time at middle linebacker.
Mosley was taken to the locker room on a cart in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Bengals and is being evaluated for a knee injury.
Mosley landed awkwardly while decelerating after a play was over and came up limping. The linebacker has been a Pro Bowler three of the past four seasons and would be a big loss for the Ravens defense if out for a significant period of time. As long as Mosley remains off the field, Chris Board is slated to take over at middle linebacker.
Mosley finished his fourth professional season with 132 tackles, three forced fumbles, two interceptions, a sack and a defensive touchdown.
The Alabama product's impressive campaign earned him Pro Bowl honors for the third time in just four seasons. His 132 tackles were one shy of his career high, which Mosley set as a rookie in 2014. Mosley battled through some wear-and-tear as the season progressed -- which cost him some of his effectiveness in coverage down the stretch -- but he still produced the counting stats to be one of the top IDP options in the entire league. At just 25 years old, Mosley appears to be reaching his prime, and he'll enter the 2018 season as one of the safest linebacker options in IDP formats.
Mosley made 14 tackles (nine solo) against the Steelers on Sunday.
Mosley had the opportunity to post his season high in tackles because he played a monstrous 89 defensive snaps. The fourth-year pro now has 115 tackles on the season, and since he consistently plays full snap counts, Mosley is a stellar IDP option.
