DT Michael Pierce and OLB Tim Williams Both Active; Tyus Bowser Inactive


Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce (foot) and linebacker Tim Williams (hamstring) are both active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Neither Pierce nor Williams played Week 5 against Cleveland, and both were missed. Pierce is one of the Ravens' best run-stoppers, and Williams has been a solid pass rusher with two sacks in four games.

As expected, running back Gus Edwards is active as the No. 3 running back after being promoted from the practice squad Saturday. Edwards ran 53 times for 174 yards (3.3 per carry) and caught three passes for 34 yards in the preseason. He had a 25-yard run against the Los Angeles Rams in the team's second preseason game. With De'Lance Turner (hamstring) now on injured reserve, Edwards slides onto the depth chart behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen.

Outside linebacker Tyus Bowser, who has five tackles and zero sacks so far this season, is inactive for the first time this season with Williams back healthy. Also inactive for Baltimore is quarterback Robert Griffin III, wide receiver Jordan Lasley, cornerback Anthony Averett, fullback/defensive lineman Patrick Ricard, center Hroniss Grasu and defensive tackle Zach Sieler.

The Ravens are dressing four tight ends for the second straight game – Hayden Hurst, Mark Andrews, Maxx Williams, and Nick Boyle. Defensive back Cyrus Jones is also active after being signed a few days ago, an indication that Jones could be the Ravens' punt returner.

Nickel back Tavon Young (hip) is active after being listed as questionable on the injury return. Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr is also active after being questionable with a hamstring injury. Carr has started 169 career consecutive games at cornerback, the longest streak for any NFL defensive player.

Inactive for the Titans are linebacker Will Compton, safety Kenny Vaccaro, linebacker Wesley Woodyard, defensive lineman Bennie Logan, cornerback Kenneth Durden, guard Aaron Stinnie and offensive tackle Tyler Martz.
