The best blocking tight end in the NFL will not play another snap this year. According to ESPN, Nick Boyle suffered a season ending left knee injury in the third quarter loss last night to the New England Patriots.
Boyle made a nice 4 yard reception, and took a hard hit to the knee from Patriots linebacker Terez Hall. Ravens medical staff took Boyle off in a cart, and we are finding out now, he suffered a significant knee injury.
Losing Boyle is huge for the Ravens. He is a big loss, because it is like having a sixth offensive lineman on the field for Lamar Jackson and company. The crazy thing is he can catch too. He is the sixth leading receiver on the Ravens roster.
