  • The Browns officially list LB Sione Takitaki (hamstring) as questionable for Week 1. 


The Ravens still haven’t been able to answer the questions raised about their pass rush by the departure of Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith this offseason. Baltimore still has Matt Judon, but will be counting on veteran Pernell McPhee still having some gas in the tank, plus one or more of Tim Williams, Tyus Bowser and third-round rookie Jaylon Ferguson stepping up.

Judon at least is sick of the questions and is ready for Week 1 against the Dolphins to show the Ravens have real answers 

“Man, you all have to do your jobs, so whatever you all are going to report on our pass rush, it doesn’t count until everybody’s…,” Judon said via the Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec. “We push our own agenda around here, so you all ask me whatever, but you all are going to see. You all are going to see this Sunday, and you all are going to write about it. You all (are) going to talk about it, and then you all (are) going to say whatever you all want to say about their ‘O’ line, but we’re going to go out there and continue to do us.”
