Ravens will expand Jacoby Jones’ role


The Baltimore Ravens got wide receiver Jacoby Jones back in action since he was injured in the first game of the season. In the loss to the Green Bay Packers, Jones had two catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Not incredible stats by any means, but for someone who had missed basically 5 games, it is a good start.

“It was great,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun. “Jacoby gave us a speed element out there, and he’ll probably play more and more offensively as we go forward.”

Jones has always been a threat on special teams and he performed there as well. He returned four kick offs for 102 yards.

“I was so anxious,” Jones said. “I hadn’t played in a month. They just gave me the opportunity to return it, and I wasn’t holding back.”

The Ravens offense has relied heavily on the production of Torrey Smith. Others have begun to emerge like tight end Dallas Clark and wide receivers Marlon Brown and Tandon Doss.

Jacoby Jones could add another threat to help spread the field and balance the Ravens offense out, aside from his contributions on special teams.
