Coach John Harbaugh described the injuries as season-ending, non-contact ligament tears from practice.

"Gus made a cut — left-to-right cut — and landed wrong on his ankle, and the weight ended up going on his knee. Kind of a fluke deal," Harbaugh said. "Marcus was just kind of turning, pivoting on a turn — a basic turn that he makes dozens of times every single practice."

Baltimore's backfield has been hit hard by injuries during the preseason. Running back J.K. Dobbins is out for the season with a knee injury, and Justice Hill is on IR as well.

Harbaugh said the team is disappointed for the injured players, but he also struck a defiant tone entering the season opener at Las Vegas on Monday night.

"The train's moving fast, and we're excited to go play Monday night," he said. "The game's going to go off at 5 o'clock Pacific time, and we're going to be there right on time. We won't be late."

Baltimore also put tight end Nick Boyle on IR on Friday. Harbaugh said that would be short-term IR. The Ravens terminated the contract of tackle Andre Smith.

The Ravens have signed several veteran running backs this week in an effort to plug the holes in their backfield. Baltimore signed Latavius Murray to the roster and signed Devonta Freeman to the practice squad. The Ravens also added Le'Veon Bell to their practice squad.

Harbaugh said those players need to get up to speed on the playbook, and the team will need to determine what they can handle in a game.

Murray, who rushed for a career-high 1,066 yards in 2015 with the Raiders, spent the past two seasons with the Saints. New Orleans released him this week.

"Murray came in. He's been in training camp. He's in shape," Harbaugh said. "Le'Veon, he's been in great shape, but he's got to get in football shape a little bit. ... Freeman was in camp, so he's in shape."

The Ravens led the NFL in rushing last season, when Dobbins and Edwards combined for 1,528 yards on the ground. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is also a big running threat, and these injuries obviously put more pressure on him to have a big season.

"We've got us," Harbaugh said. "I like us. I like everything about us, and I'm excited about us going forward into this season."

Stat of the Day: Novak Djokovic has now won 17 of his last 18 Grand Slam semifinals | Tennis.com

Illinois News 11 September, 2021 - 12:44am

The Serb beat Alexander Zverev on Friday night to reach his record-tying 31st Grand Slam final.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going—that’s exactly what champions do, and 20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic has done it a lot.

The No. 1-ranked Serb rallied from a set down to beat No. 4-ranked Alexander Zverev in five sets at the US Open on Friday night, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.

Djokovic has now won 17 of his last 18 Grand Slam semifinals.

The Serb’s only loss at this stage of a major in the last seven years came to Dominic Thiem in the semifinals of Roland Garros in 2019, and he very nearly won that one too, ultimately succumbing to the Austrian, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5, 5-7, 7-5.

He’s now through to his 31st career Grand Slam final, tying the all-time record.

Djokovic will go for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title—as well as the Calendar Slam—as he faces No. 2-ranked Daniil Medvedev on Sunday.

Great to be back in New York, watching the history channel. #USOpen pic.twitter.com/S53pLJxZYw
