Kelechi Osemele's rehab going well


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/23/2014) The rehab for Ravens offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele is going well, the official team website reports. Osemele had back surgery last November but is on track for "a smooth return." 

Osemele is penciled in at one of the guard spots this season.

(3/24/2014) Ravens offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele, who's coming back from surgery to fix a herniated disk, is expected to be ready for the offseason program starting April 21, reports the Baltimore Sun. As a 2012 rookie he started every game at right tackle in the regular season before switching to left guard for the Super Bowl run.

The paper said it's unclear if Osemele will play left guard or right tackle, following Michael Oher's departure for Tennessee.

(12/30/2013) Ravens left guard Kelechi Osemele said he's made excellent progress following November surgery to repair a herniated disk and will be able to train without limitations in another month, reports the Baltimore Sun

"I'm trying to get in as good a shape as possible for next year and work on the things I need to work on to get back on the field," he said. "There's still healing going on. The wound has closed up completely, though.

"I've been working out for a couple of weeks. I'm feeling pretty good about it as far as the strength in my legs is returning. The symptoms going down my leg is gone. The surgery was a success."

Osemele started every game at right tackle as a rookie last year before moving this season to left guard, where he started seven games.

Soft mattress leads to Kelechi Osemele's back injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) Ravens left guard Kelechi Osemele said his back is getting better after missing all but six snaps Sunday against the Dolphins. Osemele said the back problem occurred because he slept on a soft mattress during the team's road trip to Miami.

"One of the major things is the bed I sleep in has to be really firm," Osemele said, per The Baltimore Sun. "It was a really soft bed. That's another thing that kind of throws my back out of whack. It was too soft. I can't be on soft mattresses. It's got to be firm."

Preseason run blocking a concern for Ravens


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Even Ray Rice needs effective run blocking and he won't get it if his offensive line struggles in the regular season to the extent it has in the preseason, offers Pro Football Focus.

Five linemen who have started for the Ravens have received negative run grades from the site, including left guard Kelechi Osemele, centers Gino Gradkowski and A.Q. Shipley, right guard Jah Reid and right tackle Michael Oher. It's no wonder that Rice has averaged a meager 2.9 yards per carry.

Osemele has struggled the most with a minus-6.8 grade that ranks lowest in the NFL at his position among all players who remain on a roster. Osemele started all 16 games in 2012 at tackle before moving to guard in the postseason.
