As we roll on towards Week 1, the Baltimore Ravens received some good news.
Rookie center Tyler Linderbaum is expected to return to practice on Friday. Linderbaum was dealing with a foot injury that was at one point speculated to be a Lisfranc issue. Thankfully, a more severe diagnosis was avoided and the Iowa product will see the field soon.
Linderbaum is a quality run blocker with exciting athleticism. Assuming he starts early in the year (even if Week 1 isn’t an option), Linderbaum is a legitimate boost to Lamar Jackson and Baltimore’s ground game. A healthy rookie center is another reason to buy the Ravens at +100 to surpass 10.5 wins (FanDuel).
