As long as left guard Ben Grubbs is absent from the lineup, the Ravens’ rushing attack will struggle.
Grubbs is perhaps the leagues most underrated guard, he’s the Ravens’ most versatile linemen, as well as their best. He can do it all, blocking into the second level, overpowering defensive linemen, you name it, Grubbs can do it.
To the surprise of many, Mike LeVoir, not former five-time pro bowler Andre Gurode, filled in for Grubbs last week against the Tennessee Titans. LeVoir, 29, is serviceable, but just doesn’t posses the talent of a Ben Grubbs. As for Gurode, his bum knee still may be a serious question.
