The Baltimore Ravens struggled with the injury bug all season long. It eventually came back to bite them as they lost six straight games to end the year and head coach John Harbaugh doesn't want to chalk it up as just bad luck. He wants to make sure the team does everything it can to prevent injuries in 2022, instead.
Harbaugh wasn't specific on what the team is going to do in the offseason to combat this issue. However, his constant adamancy alone makes it clear that Baltimore is going to switch up their strategy.
"We have to turn over every stone. We've got to look at every possible avenue to do the best we can to make sure this doesn't happen again. That's what we plan on doing."- John Harbuagh on Injury Prevention
This shouldn't come as a major shock to any NFL fan. The Ravens lost their entire running back room before the season even started and were forced to shuffle players around seemingly every week. Even quarterback Lamar Jackson missed the final four weeks of action due to an ankle issue.
Baltimore's efforts could be as simple as changing their strength & conditioning program or the training staff's day-to-day operations. They could also be as complex as bringing in technological advances that monitor a player's health and status at a much more detailed rate.
No matter what, the Ravens need to end their recent track record of injuries if they want any shot of competing in the AFC North next season. Health is amongst Baltimore's top offseason priorities.
