All indications show that rookie defensive tackle Terrence Cody is ready to play, and we may possibly see him this Sunday at home when the Baltimore Ravens take on the Cleveland Browns. That would be an extra boost to a defense that has already been playing extremely well.
As reported by the Carroll County Times, ”Terrence Cody expects to play this week after being held out of the first two games following arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Cody is no longer on the injury report.“
When asked if Cody is expected to play, Defensive Coordinator Greg Mattison said “That decision will be made at the end of the week. He’s had a great week of practice, also.”
MT. CODY’S IMPACT
So far the Ravens defense has not allowed a single touchdown this season. Cody’s presence on the defensive line can only add to that success. If Cody does see time, it will probably be limited to sub-packages. He is coming off a knee procedure, so the team will want to ease Cody back into his role slowly.
Cody’s impact allows other players like NT Haloti Ngata to move around at different positions on the line. Cody could also make an impact on the offense alongside Ngata during short yardage or goal-line situations. That will be exciting to see!
