Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley to continue rehab, hope is return comes sooner rather than later
The Baltimore Ravens have been without All-Pro offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley over the past two weeks while he recovers from a serious ankle injury sustained in the middle of the 2020season. Stanley played in Baltimore’s 2021 season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders, but didn’t look nearly 100%, prompting his absences over the Ravens’ last two games.

Stanley’s timetable to return to action is still unclear. However, Ian Rapoport, of NFL Network, reported Wednesday that Stanley had seen a doctor to examine his ankle and that Stanley would continue rehabilitation in the hopes that he will be back sooner than expected.

Following a visit this week to the doctor to check in on his ankle, #Ravens All-Pro LT Ronnie Stanley will continue to rehab for a couple weeks with hopes of returning sooner rather than later, source said. There is no surgery planned. Only rehab.

While Stanley has been unavailable, tackle Alejandro Villanueva has moved back to his natural position at left tackle while versatile offensive lineman Patrick Mekari has held down the right tackle duties. There is no doubt Baltimore will be a better football team if Stanley is well and performing at a high standard. We hope he can make his return soon.
