Ravens lose WR Jones, RT Oher to injuries

DENVER — Baltimore Ravens wide receiver/returner Jacoby Jones was injured in the second quarter of Thursday night’s season opener again the Denver Broncos when his own teammate, rookie Brynden Trawick, ran into him on a punt return.

Jones walked off the field gingerly and was taken to the locker room for examination. The team said he was doubtful to return with a knee sprain.

Ravens right tackle Michael Oher sprained his ankle on a second-quarter touchdown run by Ray Rice when guard Marshal Yanda rolled into him. Rookie fifth-round pick Rick Wagner replaced Oher, who is questionable to return.

Marlon Brown and Brandon Stokley replaced Jones, who caught a 70-yard touchdown in the final seconds of regulation to tie the AFC divisional playoff game nine months ago against Denver.
