Ravens lose center Matt Skura for the season ahead of bout with 49ers

Nov 26, 2019 at 12:37 PM--

The Baltimore Ravens will be without center Matt Skura on Sunday, and for the remainder of the season, when the team hosts the San Francisco 49ers, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. Skura suffered a knee injury during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Skura left Monday's game in the first quarter. The Ravens went on to win 45-6.

Skura started all 11 games this season for the Ravens after starting all 16 in 2018. Baltimore signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Duke in 2016.

San Francisco owns one of the league's most dominant defensive lines and leads the league in sacks with 44. Four 49ers defenders, Arik Armstead, DeForest Buckner, Nick Bosa, and Dee Ford, have more than five sacks this season. Armstead leads the team with 10.

The Ravens offense will be a tall task for the 49ers defense. The Baltimore unit leads the league in rushing yards per game (210.5) and points per game (35.1). It also leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns this season with 17 trips into the end zone.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that

Continuity. Cornerback Richard Sherman expects that to be the San Francisco 49ers' biggest advantage heading into an unprecedented and unpredictable season. NFL teams haven't had proper offseasons due to the coronavirus pandemic. When squads gather on the practice field during training camp, it will be their first time doing so since last season. Yes, teams have been working hard this offseason. That work has been conducted virtually, though. Players have been training on their own, save a few player-organized practices that ended due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests. Sherman expects the 49ers' continuity to help the team overcome the strangeness of this offseason, and fuel a quest to return to the Super Bowl. "This year, we

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch jumped on KNBR this morning and discussed several topics. Among them was an injury update on second-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who he believes may miss games early on during the upcoming season. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot during a player-organized practice in June while in Tennessee. "Deebo was really working," Lynch said on the Murph and Mac show. "That's the wonderful thing we've learned about this kid ... He's a worker. He wants to be great at football, and that sure showed in his first year. But I think it's even showed more on his desire to be great. "He was working tremendous when our players were down in Nashville doing some workouts that Jimmy (Garoppolo)
