This is a practice squad agreement, though Garafolo adds Ogbuehi is expected to be bumped up to Baltimore’s active roster soon. The Ravens have a bye this week, but starting right tackle Patrick Mekari is dealing with a high ankle sprain.
It did not take long for Ogbuehi to find a new home. The Seahawks released the seventh-year veteran Monday, and the Ravens brought him in for a Tuesday workout. The sides will move forward together, with the Ravens set to be Ogbuehi’s fourth NFL team.
Injuries have certainly affected the Baltimore offense this season, and none is bigger than Ronnie Stanley‘s season-ending setback. Alejandro Villanueva is back as a left tackle, with Mekari moving from an interior role to right tackle. Ogbuehi, 29, began the season on Seattle’s IR list but was activated for Week 4, when he started against San Francisco. That marks the only game Ogbuehi has played this year.
