Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that doctors have not cleared Ravens offensive tackle Jared Gaither to resume playing. Gaither visited Dr. Robert Watkins in California for a second opinion on his back injury. The fourth-year pro suffered a thoracic disc injury early in training camp.J. Gaither (US Presswire)

"The good news is he's getting better," a source told National Football Post. "The bad news is he's not ready to play yet. It's a medical issue, it's an issue with a spinal disc. He has made progress, but it's a week-to-week thing."

Back injuries can be maddeningly enigmatic. Gaither found this out last Wednesday when he returned to practice but was limited by pain down low.

"We just don't know, that's a mystery right now," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said last week. "Jared is as frustrated as anybody. We'll know more on Monday when he gets a re-evaluation. We'll see how that goes."

When healthy, Gaither is one of the premiere offensive tackles in football. He’s the size of a small house, powerful in the ground game and athletic enough to drop in pass protection and consistently engulf ends with his long arms.

It’s possible Gaither will wind up contributing nothing to the Ravens in 2010. When he returns he’ll have to adjust to the somewhat unfamiliar right tackle position. By the time he gets back, coaches may decide to continue developing raw but intriguing third-year man Oniel Cousins.

Jared Gaither still a no go

The Ravens have moved on. JG would have been a great player if he could just have set the team ahead of his $-signs. He will not be active in the post season even if he shows up for a game or two prior before being medically DQ'ed.

Mark my words he's not a Raven in 2011.
