The Ravens' brutal run of injury news continued this week, with new reports indicating that All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley and defensive back Chris Westry could both be facing multi-week absences.

Stanley, an All-Pro in 2019, was likely out for Sunday and perhaps longer while undergoing testing on an ankle injury, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, while Westry suffered a knee injury, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

A long-term injury to the 27-year-old Stanley would be a tough setback in his return from last year's season-ending broken ankle. The former Notre Dame star had developed into one of the league's top-rated offensive linemen prior to the injury.

Westry was forced into action in part by the season-ending injury suffered on the eve of Week 1 by cornerback Marcus Peters. The 24-year-old had previously spent time with the Cowboys' and Ravens' practice teams after going undrafted out of Kentucky in 2019, and was appearing in just his third career regular-season game in the Monday Night Football matchup against the Raiders. He played 33 of the Ravens' 80 defensive snaps, according to Fowler.
