Elvis Dumervil Suiting Up Against Lions


The Ravens will be at full strength for Monday Night Football.

Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil is active for tonight's game after sitting out last week with an ankle injury, meaning the Ravens will have their top sack artist (9.5 sacks) back.

Dumervil was questionable entering the game and was limited in practice on Friday and Saturday. He said he was working on strengthening the ankle to get to a point where he could tolerate the pain.

Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb (abs) will also play after being listed as questionable. Rookie safety Brynden Trawick (ankle) is out again after returning to practice this week for the first time since Week 12.

Baltimore's scratches are Trawick, safety Omar Brown, running back Bernard Scott, center Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Deonte Thompson, outside linebacker John Simon and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

Ravens tight end Dallas Clark is active this week after sitting out last Sunday against the Vikings following Dennis Pitta's return. Baltimore will have all three tight ends active with Pitta, Clark and Ed Dickson.

Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) will both play after being listed as questionable.

Detroit will be shorthanded in the secondary, however. Starting cornerback Chris Houston (toe) and No. 3 cornerback Darius Slay (knee) are both out. That hurts a Lions pass defense that already ranks 26th against the pass (256 yards per game).
