RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Upshaw turned in a solid and thoroughly unspectacular rookie season, and now he'll likely be relegated to a part-time role. Terrell Suggs is an every-down workhorse at one outside linebacker spot, while newcomer Elvis Dumervil figures to see most of the playing time at the other outside linebacker spot. The Ravens will get creative and find packages that use all three players, but don't expect Upshaw to be a useful IDP so long as both Suggs and Dumervil are healthy.
The Ravens are expecting big things from Upshaw in his rookie season. He will fill the Rush linebacker/end role with Terrell Suggs out for at least the first six weeks, and possibly the whole season. Don't expect Upshaw to Match Suggs' numbers, but he should help Baltimore deal with the loss of the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
