Undergoes ACL surgery

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

Ojabo underwent surgery to repair a partially-torn ACL last week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Ojabo will remain on Baltimore's injured reserve list for the remainder of the season as he recovers. He's had remarkably rough injury luck to begin his career, playing in just five total games over his first two NFL seasons. His absence leaves Kyle Van Noy and rookie fourth-rounder Tavius Robinson as the Ravens' primary depth options on the edge for the rest of the year.

May not return

Ojabo (ankle) may be done for the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh, Brian Wacker of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Ojabo suffered the injury during the team's Week 3 contest against the Colts and was placed on injured reserve Saturday. According to Harbaugh, the 23-year-old is still being evaluated and has a decision to make. One could assume that the decision may be season-ending surgery, but that is not made clear by Harbaugh. The second-year pro has played in just five games since being selected in the second round of the 2022 Draft and may finish his 2023 campaign with six tackles and a sack.

Heads to IR

The Ravens placed Ojabo (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.

Ojabo sustained an ankle injury on the opening drive in Week 3 against the Colts. He was ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Browns on Friday after he was unable to participate in practice all week. Jadeveon Clowney and Tavius Robinson are set for increased roles at edge with Ojabo set to sit out for at least four games.

Out Week 4

Ojabo (ankle) will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Browns.

No surprise here, as Ojabo was unable to participate in practice all week. He injured his ankle in last week's loss to the Colts. With Odafe Oweh (ankle) also ruled out, Jadeveon Clowney and Tavius Robinson will presumably get the start on the edge, while Jeremiah Moon should see an increased role providing depth.

Exits versus Indy

Ojabo is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts with an ankle injury, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Ojabo suffered this injury on the opening drive of Sunday's contest, though he still recorded one tackle before exiting. The second-year outside linebacker is expected to play a larger role this season after he missed the first 14 games of his rookie campaign while recovering from a torn Achilles. With Ojabo sidelined for the time being, Jadaveon Clowney and Tavius Robinson will have to step into much larger roles at outside linebacker, as starter Odafe Oweh (ankle) is already inactive.

Returns to practice

Ojabo (undisclosed) is practicing Monday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Ojabo didn't practice last week with an undisclosed injury, but it looks like he's now good to go for Week 1. The 2022 second-round pick appeared in just two games as a rookie due to an Achilles tear, and the Ravens may simply be taking a cautious approach to his health. Ojabo could handle an immediate starting role during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Texans.

Dealing with injury

Ojabo (undisclosed) has not practiced this week, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Ojabo is doing "OK," according to head coach John Harbaugh, who downplayed the second-year pro's absence. The Michigan product missed all but two games last season due to recovering from an Achilles tear, although there's no reason to believe this is related. The 23-year-old is expected to be available Week 1 against the Texans.

Feels better than pre-Achilles tear

Ojabo said Wednesday that he's added 5-to-10 pounds of muscle this offseason and currently feels "more explosive" than he did before his Achilles tear in March 2022, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official website reports.

Ojabo was widely projected as a first-round pick prior to the injury at his pro day last March and went 45th overall even with no expectation of rookie-year contributions. The linebacker made his NFL debut nine months after the injury but played only 23 defensive snaps in three appearances (including playoffs) over Baltimore's final five games. Ojabo did have a strip-sack on one of those snaps, Week 18 at Cincinnati, and he'll have every chance to earn a lot of playing time in 2023 after the Ravens relied on 30-something OLBs Justin Houston and Jason Pierre-Paul (both free agents as of mid-May) for 923 combined snaps last year. Odafe Oweh and Tyus Bowser are Baltimore's returning edge rushers with significant NFL experience, but the former has only eight sacks in 32 career games (1,249 snaps) and the latter 19.5 in 89 (2,443 snaps). In addition to his pass-rushing upside, Ojabo is plenty big enough to handle early down snaps, especially if he's now up to around 255-260 pounds (he weighed 250 at the 2022 Combine).
