Cleveland Browns v Cincinnati Bengals

Coming into the season, the Baltimore Ravens had an offensive line projected by some as a top-five unit, while the Cincinnati Bengals’ o-line was expected to be among the league’s worst.

The tables have turned quite a bit, as Cincinnati’s offensive line has made big strides throughout the season, while Baltimore’s has struggled mightily at times, partly due to losing All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley to season-ending ankle surgery.

During the Bengals’ 41-17 win this past Sunday, Ravens starting right tackle Patrick Mekari suffered a high ankle sprain, which could sideline him for several games.

In the meantime, Baltimore is signing former Bengals first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi to the practice squad, though it sounds like he’ll be elevated to the 53-man roster soon enough.

After a four-year career in Cincinnati (2015-18), Ogbuehi has had stints with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks, the latter of which he began the 2021 season with before being cut last week. He’s started in five games over the last three years, all with Seattle.

We don’t need to rehash Ogbuehi’s time in Cincinnati, but he’s managed to carve out a career as a backup since leaving the Queen City. In the limited playing time he’s had over the last three years, Ogbuehi has had respectable PFF grades of 67.0 (2019), 65.5 (2020) and 68.6 (one game in 2021).

The Bengals host the Ravens in Week 16.
