Entering this season, no one really thought the Ravens would be 4-9 by Week 14. Then again, no one expected they would be playing without Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs, Justin Forsett, Steve Smith and a host of other guys.
Baltimore currently has 18 (going on 19) players on injured reserve, according to the team’s web site, making John Harbaugh’s squad the most injured in the NFL. At this point the team’s injury report is longer than Apple’s terms and conditions.
The Baltimore-based Scott Garceau show tweeted out an image that conveys just how dire the Ravens’ injury situation is.

That photo sort of makes you think of the Ravens as contestants on Survivor or something. Who will be the last player standing? Stay tuned to find out.
The Ravens close the season with the Chiefs, Bengals and Steelers, all playoff contenders. With Jimmy Clausen starting at quarterback it shouldn’t be too hard for Baltimore to drop its final three games and position themselves for a top-five pick in the draft.
Add a stud draft pick to the mix and the Ravens could bounce back strong next year, assuming everyone actually stays on the field.
