This is the depth chart on the Ravens’ official release for their preseason opener:
WR Torrey Smith
RT Michael Oher
TE Ed Dickson
QB Joe Flacco
FB Vonta Leach
RB Ray Rice
Stat to remember: Flacco’s 44 regular-season wins are the most by a quarterback in his first four seasons in NFL history.
Best battle: There really isn’t a competition on offense as long as McKinnie and Williams don’t decline sharply at this stage of their careers.
Injury watch: Birk hasn’t missed a regular-season game since the 2005 season, but he will be sidelined for the preseason opener with back spasms. Rookie Gino Gradkowski will start in his place.
DT Haloti Ngata
DE Arthur Jones
OLB Courtney Upshaw
ILB Jameel McClain
ILB Ray Lewis
OLB Paul Kruger
LCB Lardarius Webb
FS Ed Reed
RCB Cary Williams
Stat to remember: Reed’s 57 interceptions are the most in the league since 2002.
Best battle: At the start of camp, I thought it would be tough for Williams to hold off Jimmy Smith, the team’s 2011 first-round pick. But, once again, an injury could stop Smith (back) from winning the starting job in camp.
Injury watch: Upshaw, the team's top pick in this year's draft, has missed seven straight practices with a sprained right shoulder. This could lead to more playing time for Sergio Kindle.
