Moreover, last season Jackson rushed more than 1,000 yards and scored 33 touchdowns.
Besides Jackson, the Ravens also count on another one of their elite players – Ronnie Stanley. It was last year in November during the game with the Pittsburg Steelers when he fractured his ankle. In an interview for The Baltimore Sun in August, Stanley said that although it has taken some time to recover, he feels really good. Additionally, he said that he is building up flexibility and plans to be “full-go” for the team’s Week 1 game against the Raiders.
