Baltimore Ravens All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley is set for season-ending ankle surgery for the second consecutive year.

Stanley recovered from ankle surgery in 2020 to start against Las Vegas in Week 1 this season, but he has missed every game since after playing 100 percent of the snaps against the Raiders.

Stanley, 27, was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

“This is not what I wanted or expected when coming into the season,” Stanley said in a statement. “As a competitor, I have a mindset of sacrificing my body for my brothers and my team to reach our goals. At this point in time, my ankle isn’t where it should be.”

Stanley suffered the ankle injury on Nov. 1, 2020, just days after signing a five-year extension worth $98.75 million, with a $22.5 million signing bonus.

Stanley earned Pro Bowl honors after the 2019 season. He has started all 63 games he has played in for Baltimore since being the No. 6 overall pick in 2016.
