Sunday Night Football was a scene that Baltimore Ravens fans have grown accustomed to. On the final play of regulation, world class kicker Justin Tucker lined up for a 43-yard game-winning attempt.

Tucker nailed it and the Ravens walked out of M&T Bank Stadium with a crucial 19-17 divisional win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Unfortunately, the party stopped quickly when head coach John Harbaugh revealed the extent of safety Marcus Williams' first-half injury.

Geno Stone played the entire second half in Williams' spot and it became quickly clear this was a more serious issue than fans were hoping for.

Harbaugh indicated his veteran safety has a dislocated wrist and "will miss significant amount of time." The former Utah product is likely heading for at least a stint on the IR, but it's unclear exactly how much time he'll miss.

This is a brutal blow for a defensive unit already struggling. The Ravens' secondary has allowed the most passing yards in the league through five weeks (1,451) and the sixth-most passing TDs (9).

Stone and rookie Kyle Hamilton will have to fill in for Williams' production. On the year, Williams owns 33 combined tackles and leads the team with 3 interceptions.
