Cook Breaks Leg
The biggest blow to the Ravens in Thursday’s 48-17 preseason win over Jacksonville was losing safety

Head Coach John Harbaugh announced after the game that “it’s a season-ending deal,” which means Cook will likely be placed on injured reserve sometime this week.
“He’s had a really good camp and he’s one of our most valuable special teams guys from last year,” Harbaugh said. “That was tough.”
Cook tweeted after the game that he is already at the hospital to undergo surgery.
“Thanks 2 everyone 4 the support! I'm super trippy now n the surgery room!” he wrote. Thinking bout the bounce back! Blessed Just 4 the opportunity!”

Considine Suffers Concussion

Streeter Scores First Touchdown
Streeter caught the pass on a slant route and then outran everyone to the end zone.
“I just thank God that I was on the end of that catch,” said Streeter, who had the ball in his bag after the game for a keepsake.
“There was no safety back there, so it was me and the cornerback one-on-one and I ran the slant. As soon as it hit my hands, I looked up and saw there was no safety and I was like, ‘Oh man, they have to catch me.’”
Streeter finished the day with two catches for 40 yards.
Rainey Has Another Impressive Showing
Undrafted rookie running back had another strong showing in Thursday’s game, finishing the game with three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown. He also added two carries for seven yards.
“It’s just a blessing for me to get the opportunity,” Rainey said. “As long as I can continue to get better, I think I’ll be alright.”
Rainey was the second running back to come into the game behind
“I can’t worry about that right now,” he said. “I can only control what I can control and go game-by-game and let the chips fall how they fall.”
