Coming into Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Ravens are in bad shape as their roster has been depleted by injuries.

A list that's getting longer

The Baltimore Ravens face a monumental challenge coming into their weekend game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The unfortunate truth, however, is that it comes in the form of their extensive injury list and not necessarily their opponent. With nine players on the injury list and a further six listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game, options are running thin for head coach John Harbaugh.

The Chiefs in contrast, have a perfect injury report. There are no players on the injury list excluding Willie Gay who will miss at least two additional games due to a toe injury.

The 'Questionables'

At present Baltimore's official injury list is unforgiving, as absences are spread across the field. Yet, it doesn't end there as a further six players have been listed as 'questionable' ahead of Sunday night's game including wide receiver Marquise Brown, who was placed on the list as of Friday following an ankle injury in training.

Mahomes in the middle

Regardless of injuries the Ravens are well aware of the threat placed by the Chiefs' star QB, Patrick Mahomes. According to Baltimore's defensive coordinator, Wink Martindale, Mahomes should already be included in the conversation of greats. "I think Mahomes is [Joe] Montana. I’m talking about the San Francisco Montana and not the Kansas City Montana,” Martindale said. ”I think how everything is cyclical and history repeats itself. I think you’re seeing that combination between Andy Reid and Mahomes of Montana and Bill Walsh. I really do.”
