The Baltimore Ravens are making an official change to their left tackle position on Sunday. Former starter Bryant McKinnie is inactive, while newly acquired Eugene Monroe will be making his Ravens debut against the Green Bay Packers this week.
The Ravens acquired Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fourth- and fifth-round pick two weeks ago. He was inactive in Week 5 as he learned Baltimore's offense, but is now ready to go. McKinnie will not dress this week, having missed a day of practice with a sore knee. The 34-year-old is a possible trade candidate before the Oct. 29 deadline.
Baltimore isn't the only team making a change at left tackle. The Pittsburgh Steelers are debuting Levi Brown against the New York Jets this week after acquiring him from the Arizona Cardinals for a late conditional pick. He is replacing Mike Adams. Brown played under offensive coordinator Todd Haley at Arizona and the Steelers hope he can give the running game a better spark than Adams did.
