The Baltimore Ravens are looking to determine their Week 1 starting left guard this summer, and among those competing for the job is veteran Ben Powers. That’s not all Powers has been doing this summer, however. Powers is in competition with the likes of Tyre Phillips and Ben Cleveland...
Ben Powers has taken the lead to win the starting job at left guard for the Ravens. However, Tyre Phillips appears to be thriving at training camp and it looks like he will battle Powers for that top spot on the depth chart.
Powers is among a handful of candidates for the Ravens' starting left guard spot this offseason, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports. Powers started 12 of 13 games last season, but he missed Baltimore's final four games with a foot injury. The 2019 fourth-round pick appears to have gotten past this season-ending injury, however, and he will compete with fellow interior offensive lineman Ben Cleveland, Patrick Mekari and Tyre Phillips, according to Brown.
Powers (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Bengals, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Powers will miss his second straight game with the injury after not being able to practice all week. With Tyre Phillips (knee) doubtful, Ben Cleveland will likely draw a start at guard for the ailing Ravens offensive line Sunday against the Bengals.
What a week it was to be a Baltimore Ravens fan. Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs could prove to be a pivotal moment for the franchise and for this season. Not only did the team vanquish its biggest kryptonite, but its performance also provided a glimpse at answers to some of the biggest questions surrounding the roster.
