NFL Network's Ian Rapoport doesn't expect the Ravens to release LT Eugene Monroe.
According to RapSheet, Monroe (shoulder) is still injured, and the Ravens could slide No. 6 overall pick Ronnie Stanley inside to guard. That all makes some sense, but when asked about Monroe after picking Stanley, the Ravens declined to comment. The writing has been on the wall that Baltimore doesn't trust Monroe to stay on the field after he's missed 16 games the past two years. Apr 29 - 12:55 PM

The Ravens declined to comment on LT Eugene Monroe after selecting OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.

Monroe is expected to be traded or released with Stanley now in the fold as the left tackle of the future and most likely the present. Rick Wagner will remain at right tackle. Monroe has missed a combined 16 games over the past two years and has become unreliable on Joe Flacco's blind side. The Ravens can clear $6.5 million in cap space by making Monroe a post-June 1 cut.

Ravens director of college scouting Joe Hortiz said there are solid left tackle prospects available "beyond the top two."

The top two on most boards are Ole Miss' Laremy Tunsil and Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley. Tunsil should be well gone by the time the Ravens pick at No. 6 overall, but there is a good chance Stanley is available at that pick. With more pressing needs on defense, however, it now appears unlikely Baltimore goes that route, especially after owner Steve Bisciotti called Eugene Monroe "our left tackle." A developmental prospect on Day 2 or 3 to play behind the oft-injured Monroe would make a lot of sense.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Eugene Monroe is "our left tackle."

This directly contradicts coach John Harbaugh, who said there will be a competition at left tackle. But at the end of the day, it'd be hard to see Monroe losing any battle to keep his job. The Ravens simply don't have a capable replacement on the roster. Keeping Monroe around for another season and then possibly looking to move on next year probably makes the most sense.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team will have a competition at left tackle.

Baltimore failed to replace Eugene Monroe in free agency, but that will not stop them from trying to find a replacement on the roster. RT Rick Wagner could be an option on the left side, but he was a liability as a pass blocker last season. Even though Monroe is vastly overpaid, keeping him for one more year may make the most sense.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec said it feels "inevitable" the Ravens cut LT Eugene Monroe.

The Ravens are pushing hard to re-sign Kelechi Osemele, who they view as a left tackle moving forward. Monroe would certainly be released if Osemele is retained, and he could still be shown the door if Osemele decides to walk. Monroe has missed 15 games over the last two seasons and is set to count $8.7 million against the cap. The Ravens could save $2.1 million by releasing him.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley wouldn't be surprised if the Ravens cut LT Eugene Monroe.

Monroe has missed 15 games the last two years with injuries. The Ravens might need to decide between keeping him or re-signing LG Kelechi Osemele. Releasing Monroe saves $2.1 million, but would leave $6.6 million in dead money.

Ravens placed LT Eugene Monroe on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

This was expected after NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monroe's shoulder "hasn't progressed in a month." Monroe has played just 17 games the last two seasons after signing a five-year, $37.5 million contract in 2014. Baltimore could save $2.1 million against the 2016 cap by cutting the oft-injured tackle, but they would have to eat $6.6 million in dead money. Monroe will likely be back next season, but Baltimore cannot rely on him to play 16 games.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is expected to head to injured reserve.

Monroe's injured shoulder "hasn't progressed in a month," per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jimmy Clausen will be quarterbacking the Ravens against the Seahawks on Sunday without his left tackle, and with little to no formidable weaponry. Seattle's fantasy D/ST is the top play of Week 14.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe will have an MRI on his injured shoulder Wednesday.

"Between him, his doctor and his agent, he’ll have to make a decision about whether he wants to play with it for the rest of the year," coach John Harbaugh said. Monroe has been sidelined since Week 11 with the injury and has missed 11 of a possible 28 games the last two seasons. That number could rise if the MRI does not come back clean. Baltimore could save $2.1 million on the 2016 salary cap by cutting the oft-injured tackle, but they would have to eat $6.6 million in dead money.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 13.

He'll miss his second straight game. Monroe hasn't practiced since going down in Week 11. The Ravens will get LG Kelechi Osemele (probable, knee) back Sunday.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 12 against the Browns.

It’s downgrade to Buck Allen’s matchup. With LG Kelechi Osemele (knee) also doubtful, the Ravens will be forced to start James Hurst and Ryan Jensen.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) and LG Kelechi Osemele (knee) are unlikely to play after missing practice Saturday.

Neither player has practiced all week. With Jeremy Zuttah already on injured reserve, Baltimore will be without three starters on the offense line as well as their three best offensive players in Joe Flacco (knee), Justin Forsett (arm) and Steve Smith (Achilles). This has been a season to forget for the Ravens.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe exited Week 11 against the Rams with a shoulder injury and will not return.

Monroe has been battling the shoulder for weeks. James Hurst is in at left tackle.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 03:21:00 PM

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 8.

It's a concern for Joe Flacco's pass protection against the Chargers. The Ravens will turn to James Hurst on Flacco's blind side. Hurst struggled mightily in three spot starts replacing Monroe earlier this season.
