Baltimore Ravens rookie defensive lineman Arthur Jones tweeted last night that he’s expected to get his “feet wet” against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Aaron Wilson of the Carroll Country Times reported the details last evening in a post on his blog.
Veteran defensive end Cory Redding has an arm injury, and is listed as questionable on the injury report.
A fifth-round draft pick from Syracuse, Jones was graded as highly as a potential second-round draft pick.
However, the All-Big East selection’s stock fell due to injuries.
At Syracuse, Jones recorded 135 tackles, 38 1/2 for losses, 6 1/2 sacks and four fumble recoveries.
He was a team captain as a senior for the Orangemen.
The Ravens will need the help up front as they go head to head against a big bruising running back in LeGarrette Blount.
