Kelly Gregg injury could be damaging on several fronts

Kelly Gregg is having an MRI on his shoulder that he injured in Monday Night’s game against the Jets. At this point team officials are just hopeful that Gregg will be ok. Keep your fingers crossed Ravens’ fans. Gregg certainly hasn’t been himself during camp or in either of the preseason games. He is trying to recapture that quick, explosive first step that has always helped to give him an edge against larger opponents. With it he gained an upper hand in leverage. Without it, he can be eaten up. If Gregg does return, that is clearly something to key in on going forward. The defensive tackle’s injury could impact any potential deals the Ravens might be pursuing. Clearly with Gregg DT is a position of strength from which they can deal to add more depth at tight end or offensive tackle.
