If you have no idea who Ryan Jensen is, you are forgiven. He’s the Baltimore Ravens center. He’s also the guy who was engaged with Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark when he suffered a high-ankle sprain last week.
He’s also the guy Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix called trash, saying he was purposely trying to injure Clark.
That appears not to be the case. Since the injury, Jensen has exchanged texts with Clark saying he wasn’t trying to injure him. Clark apparently agreed and all is forgiven.
“[Clark] texted me back and goes, ‘I respect you reaching out to me, and I’ll be good. I know you weren’t trying to hurt me,'” Jensen said Friday.
Clark’s teammates always seemed more bothered about the play than Clark did. In addition to Clinton-Dix, cornerback Davon House spoke out about the play. Both suggested it was dirty.
Perhaps it looked dirty, but it doesn’t seem that it actually was.
Regardless of the situation, Clark isn’t likely to play against Pittsburgh on Sunday. He is listed as doubtful. With a high-ankle sprain, we wouldn’t expect him to play for about three weeks.
That will certainly hinder the Packers’ defensive line. Clark is developing into a pretty good player in his second season. In his absence, the Packers will have to look for production from Quinton Dial and Montravius Adams, among others.
