The Ravens suffered significant losses to both their offense and special teams units in their embarrassing season-opening loss to the Broncos.

Return specialist and wide receiver Jacoby Jones suffered a knee injury in the second quarter while right tackle Michael Oher hurt his right ankle later in the quarter. Neither player returned to the game as the Ravens fell 49-27 to lose their first season opener in the John Harbaugh era.

Jones was injured trying to field a punt when rookie safety Brynden Trawick inexplicably ran into him in the midst of a full sprint. After limping off the field, he was taken to the locker room for further examination and was wearing street clothes on the sideline during the second half. Jones told reporters after the game that he will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging on Friday.

Oher hurt his right ankle when right guard Marshal Yanda rolled into his leg, forcing rookie fifth-round pick Rick Wagner to enter the game at right tackle. The Ravens only went with two active reserve linemen — reserve center A.Q. Shipley and Wagner — as Jah Reid and rookie Ryan Jensen were among the inactives.
