(TSX / STATS) -- The Baltimore Ravens placed Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

Yanda sustained a fractured ankle during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.

The 33-year-old Yanda missed parts of training camp as he recovered from offseason shoulder surgery. However, Yanda was dominant in both regular-season games and anchored an offensive line that had already suffered several key losses.

"It hurts," Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "He is a leader. There is not a word in the English dictionary that can describe what Marshal is to us."

Baltimore signed guard/center Matt Skura to the active roster from the practice squad. Skura started all four preseason games with the Ravens.

The Ravens also signed tackle Dieugot Joseph from Chicago's practice squad to the active roster.
