It was painfully clear headed into Week 8 that Baltimore’s offense needed a facelift in order to find an identity. During their Thursday night thrashing of the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens finally seemed to uncover that identity. It came in the form of second-year running back Alex Collins.
Alex Collins was a fifth-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2016 NFL Draft but failed to make their roster this year amid a crowded backfield, losing his spot to undrafted rookie Chris Carson. He was signed to the Ravens practice squad on Sept. 3rd and wouldn’t make their active roster until almost two full weeks later following Woodhead’s injury.
Christopher Herndon, TE, Miami, Fla. — Herndon was the favorite target of junior quarterback Malik Rosier, catching 10 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in the 27-19 win over Syracuse. The 6-4, 252-pound Georgia native could continue Miami’s strong tradition of sending tight ends to the NFL.
Ryan Izzo, TE, Florida State — Things didn’t end well for the Seminoles against Louisville, but the 6-5, 250-pound Izzo shined as a blocker. He uses his hands well and understands leverage to seal a defender. He’s tenacious with his blocking and also caught two passes for 37 yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals.
Michael Jackson, CB, Miami, Fla. — The 6-1, 200-pound junior had a pair of interceptions in the win over Syracuse to earn Miami’s turnover chain. Though in his first season as a starter, Jackson played as a true freshman and has the special teams experience necessary to make a roster at the next level.
Monday was not the first time this season that Bryant missed a workday with an illness. He did not participate in a Saturday walk-through before the Week 5 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he missed two practice days with an illness in Week 4.
