Steven Means carted off with ankle injury vs. Dolphins, leaving Ravens thin at outside linebacker – The Denver Post


Ravens outside linebacker Steven Means was ruled out of Sunday’s home opener against the Miami Dolphins after suffering an ankle injury in the second quarter.

With 14:43 left, Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert was tackled by Broderick Washington and Malik Harrison for a 3-yard loss, and Means remained on the ground in the obvious pain. He took his helmet off and could not put any pressure on his right foot. Means was looked at by trainers before being carted off the field.

Means, who turned 32 on Friday, signed with the Ravens in the offseason before being cut and signed to the practice squad. After Means was activated for the Ravens’ season-opener against the New York Jets, coach John Harbaugh announced this week that he was signed to the active roster.

With Means injured, the Ravens have depth issues at outside linebacker. Second-year pro Odafe Oweh and veteran Justin Houston are the only healthy outside linebackers, as Tyus Bowser and rookie David Ojabo are both recovering from torn Achilles tendon injuries. Harrison, an inside linebacker, and defensive lineman Calais Campbell are also available to play on the edge.
