News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): He's not making highlight plays, but Daniels is steady in an offense that focuses on the tight end in the passing game. He is settling in as a solid low-end TE1 option as the Kubiak Ravens offense continues to flourish.
General News (Fri Oct 24): is out for this weekend's game. Daniels underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee and will not play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh said he doesn't expect Daniels to miss much time, but Daniels will reportedly miss 2-4 weeks.
General News (Thu Oct 23): did not practice on Thursday.
General News (Wed Oct 22): did not practice on Wednesday.
General News (Tue Oct 21): was targeted by Joe Flacco nine times Sunday, Oct. 19, and caught six balls for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. Daniels is second on the team with 27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns. "He makes catches in traffic," Flacco said. "He obviously has held onto the ball a lot of times while getting hit by two guys, even one in the end zone. So, yes, I have a lot of confidence throwing to him."
Week 8: at Cincinnati Bengals
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Joe Flacco and company came down for the five TD high of Week 6 to a more sedate 16/25 for 258 net yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown vs. Atlanta, with one sack taken for -10 yards. Torrey Smith was 1/2 a yard from having two TD receptions last weekend (he finished with five targets for 3/81/1), while Steve Smith saw part-time duty and finished with five targets for 5 targets for 3/67/0 receiving on the day. Owen Daniels has a constant presence vs. Atlanta with nine targets for 6/58/1 - he seems to be in a comfort zone with Flacco right now. It's all good for the Ravens' offense heading into Week 8. The Bengals' defense has been shattered over the past two weeks - their linebacking corps is banged up (see BAL's rushing matchup) and starting CB Leon Hall suffered a back injury that pushed him out of the game last weekend. Andrew Luck (27/42 for 335 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown) and Cam Newton (29/46 for 284 net yards, two TDs and one interception) have both enjoyed excellent outings against the Bengals over the past two weeks. Flacco and company have another great matchup to work with this week.
