As the Baltimore Ravens virtual offseason comes to an end this week, coach John Harbaugh said the AFC's reigning No. 1 seed escaped with its health.
The biggest looming question was that of center Matt Skura, who suffered a season-ending ACL tear in late November. Harbaugh raved about Skura's recovery Monday.
"We're healthy. Yeah, we're healthy," Harbaugh said. "Matt Skura was the biggest injury we had last year and he looks to be like he's ahead of schedule. Really impressed with how hard he's worked at it. He really looks good out there. I think it was reported that the time, the workout that we did, the timing of the conditioning test, he just blew the thing away. That's remarkable. So we go in healthy."
With Skura suffering an ACL tear and dislocated knee, the Ravens would be ecstatic if he is good to at any point in the early part of the season given the normal timetable for such injuries. The report of his ahead of schedule recovery in June is a promising sign.
Skura's presence on a line that will be without potential Hall of Fame guard Marshall Yanda, who retired this offseason, would be a big boost for Lamar Jackson and the rest of the Ravens rushing attack.
