Offensive tackle Eugene Monroe was traded to the Baltimore Ravens from the Jacksonville Jaguars just a few days before last week’s game against the Miami Dolphins, so it was no big shock that he was ruled inactive without a total understanding of the new system.
This week, when Baltimore plays host to the Green Bay Packers, Monroe feels that he is ready to go with a full understanding of how the offense is expected to work.
“I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of what’s going on,” Monroe said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I’m ready to go. I’ll start getting in there with the guys, building on a relationship on the line and be ready. It’s been a grind: First one in the building, last one out. I’m doing everything it takes to be ready.”
If the Ravens feel Monroe is genuinely ready to see playing time, he could very well be inserted in to the starting line up.
The Ravens have seen underwhelming play from the left tackle position, so they will be more than happy if they can get better protection for Joe Flacco.
