Late in the first quarter of Thursday night’s preseason affair, the Ravens went ahead of the New York Giants for good.
The celebration was muted, however. The team’s mind was not on the present, but the future.
Relief swept through the organization when the team learned that all-world tackle Jonathan Ogden, who had limped off the field just moments earlier with a knee injury, had merely suffered an MCL sprain. Had he torn the ligament, his season likely would have ended in the Meadowlands.
Rather, Ogden, the seven-time Pro Bowler, is questionable for the season opener against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 12.
Thank goodness. Get well soon Ogden!
