Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley carted off with ankle injury

BALTIMORE — Just two days after signing a five-year, $98.75-million contract extension, Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury in the closing seconds of the first quarter of his team's game on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On first-and-10 from the Pittsburgh 41 with 57 seconds left in the quarter, the Steelers' defensive front overwhelmed the Baltimore line and sacked quarterback Lamar Jackson. Stanley writhed in pain as players got off the pile.

Trainers rushed onto the field, and Ravens players, most notably Jackson, were visibly upset as a cart was summoned. Jackson ran over to Stanley as the offensive tackle remained on the ground with trainers tending to his lower left leg, fitting an immobilizing cast on his leg. Shortly after Stanley was helped onto the cart, the entire Ravens bench encircled their fallen teammate, wishing him well. Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward also joined the group. The approximately 4,000 fans in attendance applauded in support, and Stanley clapped his hands, encouraging his teammates.

Stanley was later ruled out for the remainder of the game.
