24-October-2018 04:23
Dixon left practice early due to injuries During Baltimore’s final practice open to the media before Thursday’s preseason game against the Rams , running back Kenneth Dixon and tight end Maxx Williams left early due to injuries.The Ravens traded up three spots in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft to select Maxx Williams.Williams is currently on the roster bubble, and he needs to have a great preseason to secure his spot on the roster. With the Ravens adding two new tight ends via the 2018 NFL Draft, Williams was seemingly put on notice. Not to mention Darren Waller was also reinstated on Tuesday, which undoubtedly will add more pressure on Williams to produce. With head coach John Harbaugh not speaking to the media on Tuesday and no injury reports released during training camp, the severity of his ankle injury is unknown at this point. Injuries have plagued Williams’ entire career. In three seasons, he has yet to play in all 16 regular season games. He has battled multiple knee injuries, a concussion, a hamstring injury and now an ankle injuryHis best season came during his rookie year when he set a franchise record with 32 receptions for 268 yards and one touchdown. As for Kenneth Dixon, the Ravens selected him in the fourth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and many were expecting him to be one of the biggest steals of that entire draft class.He was sensational in college as he broke several records at Louisiana Tech. Dixon broke theNCAA touchdown record, but former Raven Keenan Reynolds later broke that record. During his final season in college Baltimore Ravens T-Shirt , Dixon rushed for 1,073 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. He also added 33 receptions for 464 yards and seven touchdowns. Once he arrived in Baltimore, Dixon’s career has also been plagued by injuries and suspensions. He has battled three knee injuries, and now a hamstring injury, while also being suspended twice. Dixon has only appeared in 12 games in the NFL. He recorded 382 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while also adding 30 receptions for 162 yards and a receiving touchdown. With the emergence of Alex Collins and strong play from Javorius Allen, Dixon is considered to be the team’s third running back. However, his spot could be up for grabs due to the strong play from some of Baltimore’s undrafted free agent running backs. Dixon must prove during training camp and the preseason that he can stay healthy. If he can stay healthy, he will likely be on the roster.Ravens QB Coach James Urban wants to see consistency from Lamar Jackson As the 2018 NFL Hall of Fame Game quickly approaches, Ravens fans anticipate the debut of Heisman winning quarterback Lamar Jackson. Jackson was the center of much debate entering the draft, with some citing that he should transition to wide receiver for the NFL. With a career completion percentage of 57 Baltimore Ravens Hats , many experts were concerned with Jackson’s accuracy throwing the football. However, with Joe Flacco as the clear starter for the Ravens in 2018, Jackson will have time to develop and improve his mechanics.Jackson has the benefit of learning from former Heisman winner and NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III, who Baltimore signed earlier in the offseason. Griffin III was similar to Jackson coming out of college, but injuries quickly derailed his promising career in the NFL. Jackson will also learn from offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and quarterback coach James Urban, who both have experience working with quarterbacks Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb. Jackson has been compared to Vick, who enjoyed several successful years as a dual-threat quarterback in the NFL with Atlanta and Philadelphia. “He gets better everyday. I keep seeing growth in all the different areas that we talk about. One of the important things that we talk about is consistency,” Ravens quarterback coach James Urban said. “In our drill work, you can see the growth and then sometimes when the bullets are flying so to speak he reverts back to what he knows, so improving that consistency of doing it all the time.”One of Jackson’s biggest flaws coming out of college was his accuracy. Many have pointed to his mechanics and footwork as a factor for his errant throws.“Yeah, some of it’s mechanical Baltimore Ravens Hoodie , some of it’s understanding exactly the route and the route concept. So much of that timing is how does it feel to the quarterback,” Urban said.Since being drafted by Baltimore, controversy has brewed over whether Jackson should start this season. Flacco is entering his 11th season in Baltimore, and the former Super Bowl MVP has under performed the last three years, which has led to an outcry of criticism. Whether Flacco’s dip in play can be attributed to injuries or lack of talent surrounding him is another discussion, but the fact is that many Ravens fans yearn for change after missing the playoffs for three straight years. This puts Jackson in the spotlight for the preseason, where fans desperately anticipate his debut, but what should they expect from him?“I want him to compete. Play the game, and then I want completions ... throw it to the open guy and when not, let your great natural ability take over,” Urban Said.The calls for Jackson to start over Flacco will intensify if Jackson has a successful preseason Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , and with five preseason games ahead, he will get plenty of playing time to show if he’s ready to challenge Flacco for the starting role or if he needs more time to develop.“Success would be improvement from game one all the way through game five, and then we’ll have a better understanding exactly where he is,” Urban said.Jackson’s long awaited debut will finally arrive this Thursday, as the polarizing first-round pick will take on the Bears. While nowhere close to a real NFL game, the Hall of Fame Game will still offer a valuable first look at Jackson’s abilities against an opposing NFL defense. Jackson was arguably the most exciting and electrifying player in this year’s draft, so the entire nation will be watching closely.
