Baltimore Ravens left guard Ben Grubbs returned Sunday night for the first time in six games after being sidelined from a right turf toe injury.
He played every offensive snap in Baltimore’s 23-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and appeared to be unscratched. On Wednesday, the Ravens posted an injury report without the name Ben Grubbs on it.
Grubs said he came through the game fine and he expects to be able to play the rest of the season.
“It’s not any worse, but it definitely still hurts,” Grubbs said. “I’m able to maintain and I’ll be able to continue to play this season. I’m glad I was in the game. I didn’t want to be on the sideline during that win. I wanted to be in the action.”
This is encouraging news for not only the Ravens’ offensive line, but for the entire offense in general. Given that Grubbs is considered the team’s best offensive linemen, his return to the lineup will bolster the running game and add to the pass protection.
