SIDELINED

Oakland running back Darren McFadden left the field shortly before halftime because of an ankle injury, the latest setback for the Raiders' top rusher. X-rays on McFadden were negative during a 42-32 loss to Tampa Bay. Oakland coach Dennis Allen didn't say which ankle was hurt and didn't provide additional information. Earlier in the game, Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was taken to a hospital because of a fast heartbeat.

Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews, Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Brown and Washington wide receiver Santana Moss were among other players who left early. Matthews hurt his hamstring injury after a failed sack and Packers receiver Jordy Nelson injured his ankle.

Moss sustained a concussion in the fourth quarter of the Redskins' 21-13 loss to Carolina.

SPEAKING

``His presence is felt every day in the facility. But to see him in the flesh, in the locker room, to hear him speak I think gave all the guys a boost.'' - Colts quarterback Andrew Luck on coach Chuck Pagano after Sunday's 23-20 win over the Dolphins.

---

``There are so many bigger things going on around here that what we do is not as important as real life. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone else who are going through so much. There were so many emotions going on, I didn't know what to expect from it. But maybe we were able to take their minds off their problems just a little.'' - quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after the Steelers beat the Giants 24-20 in storm-ravaged New Jersey.

Maryland teen gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Ravens at NFL Draft

Maryland teen gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Ravens at NFL Draft

The first round of the NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday and the Ravens made sure a special fan will not only be there, but be a part of the process.

In 2015, T.J. Onwuanibe was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and through Make-A-Wish he wanted the opportunity to announce a Ravens draft pick. 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that dream would come true and not only would T.J. get to announce a draft pick, but the Ravens first round draft pick.

T.J. Onwuanibe was joined by the Ravens cheerleaders and mascot at McDonogh for the special reveal.

Here's the full version of the video coach John Harbaugh recorded.

NFL Schedule Release: What we already know about 2017 Ravens slate

With the NFL schedule being released on Thursday night, the Baltimore Ravens already know which teams they will be up against to make postseason after missing out in back-to-back years. 

First the team will play six games against their division, both a home and an away matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Cleveland Browns. Throughout the past several seasons, the league has back-loaded the schedule with divisional matchups in order to keep most teams' playoff hopes alive. Typically three of those six games will be post-Thanksgiving, with one also within the season's first three weeks. As always (except last year), one of the Ravens-Steelers matchups will sure to be on primetime.

In this year's cycle, the Ravens will face off against the AFC South and the NFC North, which means three more playoff teams from last year, the Lions, Packers, and Texans. Tough road games will include at Green Bay and an 'away game' against the Jaguars played in London (typically scheduled in the middle weeks of the season).

MORE RAVENS: An ex-Ravens heart is keeping an MLB legend alive

As the second place finishers in the AFC North, the squad will host the Dolphins and travel to Oakland for the 16 game schedule. Both those units took home the AFC Wild Card slots in 2017. 

The timing of the Green Bay and Oakland road games will be critical in the season. Field conditions inside Oakland Alameda Coliseum have never been the best when the Oakland Athletics games are still going on in September and potentially October. Meanwhile a trip to Lambeau in late November or December will surely be a dreaded matchup where temperatures hover around zero degrees.

Last year the team finished with a tough stretch against the Cowboys, Bengals, Dolphins, Patriots, Eagles, Steelers, and Bengals again. Make that three playoff teams and three divisional rivals in the final seven games. Odds would favor the Ravens getting a better balance this go around.

On Thanksgiving do not expect the Ravens to back in the limelight. With the team playing the Detroit Lions at home and the Redskins reportedly taking the primetime slot, there would be no room for Baltimore. In addition, they played against Pittsburgh on Christmas this past season. A shame for the team which is 2-0 on turkey day in their franchise's history.

There is also an indication for an uptick in primetime games for the Ravens with the team only having two last year, their lowest since 2006. Three total games were broadcast on national television.
