Baltimore Ravens left tackle Michael Oher has struggled on the offensive line in recent weeks. Oher suffered a sprained knee that took him out of the Tampa Bay game, but he returned the next week against the Steelers.
Oher seems to be still recovering from the injury and is overcompensated from it by getting early jumps on snaps. As Aaron Wilson points out, Oher has been flagged for a team high seven false starts this season.
He committed three penalties during last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, flagged once for holding and twice for false starts.
“I wasn’t even close,” Oher said. “It’s a problem I have to fix now. I got to slow it down. I’m hurting my team. I got to get it done.”
Against the Texans, Baltimore’s offensive line allowed Joe Flacco to be sacked a season high five times and Ravens running backs only rushed for 63 total yards.
