Haloti Ngata Will Play, Dennis Pitta Won't

Posted Nov 24, 2013

The Ravens also have cornerback Lardarius Webb and inside linebacker Daryl Smith.

The Ravens will have their big man in the middle, which could make a huge difference in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is active after sitting out last week due to a knee injury.

That’s big considering the Jets have the league’s eighth-ranked run offense and could run the ball a lot on Sunday because of the high winds inside M&T Bank Stadium.

Baltimore won’t have the services of tight end Dennis Pitta, however. Pitta practice for the first time this week since dislocating and fracturing his hip in training camp, and Head Coach John Harbaugh said there was a chance he could play.

Pitta felt strong after a week of practice, but the team doesn’t want to rush his return to game action. He wasn’t moved to the active 53-man roster.

All of the Ravens’ inactives are healthy scratches: wide receiver Deonte Thompson, cornerback Asa Jackson, safety Omar Brown, running back Bernard Scott, center Ryan Jensen, outside linebacker John Simon and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

The only Ravens players who were nursing injuries this week were Ngata, inside linebacker Daryl Smith (thigh), cornerback Lardarius Webb (abs) and wide receivers Marlon Brown (knee) and Brandon Stokley (thigh).

Brown will likely be back as a starter after sitting last week in Chicago. The Ravens opted for Stokley instead of Thompson, giving the veteran his first game action since Week 3.

The Jets’ inactives are wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, quarterback David Garrard, running back Alex Green, linebacker Garrett McIntyre, guard Will Campbell, tackle Ben Ijalana and offensive lineman Oday Aboushi. Kerley is the Jets’ leading receiver in receptions and yards.
