The Baltimore Ravens played a wild and wacky one on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings and get an extra day of rest to think about all the fun they had in the snow. But the extra day will be spent by some trying to get healthy as Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil has been listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Detroit Lions.
Dumervil missed practice on Wednesday and according to Mike Florio of PFT.com, is 50-50 to play against the Lions inside of Ford Field on ESPN’s big game of the week.
Since joining the Ravens, Dumervil has been a great addition on a defense that has struggled for most of the year. He already has 9.5 sacks through 12 games this year and he’s seemingly fit right into the Ravens system. Getting him back on Monday though could be huge as the Lions running game will be one that could devastate the Ravens and putting pressure on Matthew Stafford will be huge.
Stafford has struggled in the fourth quarter of late and getting a guy like Dumervil in there to put pressure on him will bode well for a Ravens team in need of winning out the remainder of their schedule to have a shot at the postseason.
