Mark Ingram Is Active for Divisional Playoffs 


The NFL's top rushing team will have its top running back available Saturday night.

Mark Ingram II (calf) is active for Saturday night's divisional playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, ending two weeks of uncertainty about his status.

On Thursday, Ingram practiced for the first time since suffering his injury Dec. 22, and he only worked on a limited basis. He was listed as questionable to play.

The 30-year-old Ingram had one of his best regular seasons, rushing for 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns and making the Pro Bowl for the third time. He is also Baltimore's best receiver out of the backfield, catching 26 passes for 247 yards and five touchdowns.

How close to full strength Ingram will be remains to be seen. No. 2 running back, Gus Edwards, rushed for a career-high 130 yards in the regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers and is ready for a heavy workload if necessary, along with rookie running back Justice Hill.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) is also active after being listed as questionable. Andrews practiced on a limited basis Thursday for the third straight day, but he has only missed one game in his two seasons with the Ravens. Andrews led the team in catches (64), receiving yards (852) and receiving touchdowns (10), and made the Pro Bowl for the first time.

Defensive tackle Justin Ellis is also active, giving Baltimore an additional defensive lineman to deal with Titans running back Derrick Henry, the NFL's leading rusher this season. With Ellis active, the Ravens are dressing just four cornerbacks – Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters, Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr. 

Inactive for the Ravens are quarterback Trace McSorley, wide receiver Jaleel Scott, cornerbacks Jordan Richards, Iman Marshall and Anthony Averett; guard Ben Powers and offensive tackle Andre Smith, who was signed as a free agent earlier in the week.

Starting Linebacker Jayon Brown Inactive for Titans

Inside linebacker Jayon Brown (shoulder) and wide receiver Adam Humphries (foot) were ruled out Friday by the Titans.

Brown was Tennessee's third leading tackler (105 tackles) this season and has drawn particularly good Pro Football Focus grades for his pass coverage. He suffered his injury during last weekend's playoff victory over the New England Patriots.

Humphries caught 37 passes for 374 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season, but has not played since Dec. 1.

Wide receiver Cody Hollister (ankle) is inactive for the Titans after being questionable on Thursday's injury report.

Also inactive for Tennessee are wide receiver Rashard Davis, offensive lineman Kevin Pamphile and defensive tackles Joey Ivie and Isaiah Mack.
