Harry Douglas Injury: Receiver Ruled Out For Sunday's Game Against Ravens

It's the fourth straight game Douglas has missed.

Dealing with a persistent foot injury of an as-yet undisclosed nature, Harry Douglas has been ruled out for this weekend's game against the Ravens.

Without Douglas, the Falcons will once again lean heavily on Julio Jones and Roddy White, while hoping Devin Hester is completely healthy and ready to make an impact against a nasty Ravens defense. That means the receiving corps can't drop eight balls again, and it means the Falcons should make a better effort to get Antone Smith involved in the passing game, where he's been incredibly deadly thus far in 2014.

Everyone else should be ready to go, which is good news. We'll hope for a return to a starting role for Prince Shembo, an even healthier Justin Blalock and a totally healthy Devin Hester, which should help the passing game.

The Ravens are, for what it's worth, down starting linemen Eugene Monroe and Kelechi Osemele, which gives the pass rush a fighting chance of getting home against the talented but functionally immobile Joe Flacco. Let's hope they can get it done.
