Travis Kelce TE KC 5 Hrs
Kelce caught four passes for 33 yards against the Chargers on Sunday.
Kelce's output was a bit of a disappointment, having been held under 40 yards for the second straight time. However, he didn't find his way into the end zone this week like he did against the 49ers, making it worse. The Chargers are one of the top defenses against tight ends though, but it doesn't get much easier for Kelce as the Rams are on the schedule next, another good defense against tight ends.
Michael Campanaro WR BAL 5 Hrs
Campanaro caught his only target for an 17-yard gain in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Marlon Brown (thigh) was inactive despite being listed as probable, leaving Campanaro and Kamar Aiken to split playing time behind starters Torrey and Steve Smith. It won't be surprising if Campanaro and Aiken again split the No. 3 wide receiver role next week, as Brown's scratch may not have been a result of the injury.
Trent Richardson RB IND 5 Hrs
Richardson downplayed the hamstring issue that he sustained in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 27-0 win over the Bengals, ESPN.com reports. "Little tweak, nothing big," Richardson noted. "I was able to still run and move. Coach [Chuck Pagano] told me there's no reason to back out there."
Prior to tweaking his hamstring Sunday, Richardson had carried 14 times for 77 yards and caught four passes for 41 yards. While it's possible that he could be limited some at practice this week, it would appear as though Richardson will be able to continue to work in tandem with fellow RB Ahmad Bradshaw this coming Sunday against the Steelers.
Jacoby Jones WR BAL 5 Hrs
Jones muffed a punt and played just four offensive snaps in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Jones' terrible season continued, though he did manage a nice, albeit fairly meaningless, return of a safety punt late in the fourth quarter. He's a non-factor in the Baltimore offense, even with Marlon Brown (thigh) missing the past two games. Jones does figure to stay on kick returns, but it won't be surprising if the Ravens replace him on punts with Michael Campanaro.
Owen Daniels TE BAL 5 Hrs
Daniels caught 6-of-9 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Daniels had his first big game since Dennis Pitta (hip) suffered a season-ending injury, even though Joe Flacco attempted just 25 passes. The Ravens haven't had to throw very often since Week 1, but there's still been a decent number of targets available, as Daniels, Steve Smith and Torrey Smith have dominated Flacco's attention.
Lorenzo Taliaferro RB BAL 5 Hrs
Taliaferro had four carries for three yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Justin Forsett (23 carries) and Bernard Pierce (eight carries) both worked ahead of Taliaferro, who recorded all of his carries in the fourth quarter for a second straight week. The rookie could still eventually move ahead of Pierce, but Forsett has solidified himself as the team's lead back.
Bernard Pierce RB BAL 5 Hrs
Pierce had eight carries for 21 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Pierce scored a short touchdown for the second straight week, and he again got more work than Lorenzo Taliaferro, who managed just three yards on four carries. While Justin Forsett remains the clear top option for all other situations, the bulkier Pierce seems to be the Ravens' first choice for short-yardage spots. However, it's still not entirely clear, as the sample size has been limited by the team's propensity for longer scoring plays.
Justin Forsett RB BAL 5 Hrs
Forsett had a season-high 23 carries for 95 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.
Forsett further confirmed his leading role in the Baltimore running game, but Bernard Pierce scored a short touchdown for the second straight week. It's been a bit unclear how the Ravens plan to handle goal-line work, as the team has mostly scored touchdowns from more than five yards out this season. It appears Pierce will at least get some, possibly even most, of those carries, but Forsett remains the top option for any non-short yardage situations.
Brian Orakpo LB WAS 5 Hrs
Orakpo is reportedly done for the season due to a torn right pectoral muscle, cbslocal.com reports.
Left pectoral muscle issues have cost Orakpo time in the past and his latest injury setback will evidently sideline him for the rest of the 2014 season. Trent Murphy finished Week 7's game in Orakpo's place, and thus appears in line to see expanded duties for Washington at right outside linebacker going forward.
Greg Zuerlein K STL 5 Hrs
Zuerlein missed his only field goal attempt Sunday but hit all four of his extra points in a 28-26 victory against Seattle.
After a stellar start to the season, Zuerlein has gone cold,missing one out of his two total field goal attempts the last three games. The Rams offense is actually putting the ball in the end zone as of late, and that has hurt Zuerlein's value considerably.
