The Ravens will be without rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) and starting inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor (ankle) for the second consecutive week.
Both are inactive against the Seattle Seahawks, which is not surprising after neither Brown nor Onwuasor practiced all week.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) is also inactive and will miss his sixth consecutive game. Smith returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis, but he was listed as doubtful. He’s making progress recovering from his Week 1 injury and the Ravens have a bye next week, giving Smith extra time to heal before Baltimore’s Week 9 home game against the New England Patriots.
Joining Smith as inactive in the secondary is cornerback Maurice Canady (thigh), who did not practice all week. However, cornerback Anthony Averett (ankle) is active after missing practice Thursday and Friday. Averett had been listed as questionable but will be available if needed.
With Smith and Canady inactive, newly-acquired cornerback Marcus Peters should be in line for plenty of snaps in his Ravens debut. Baltimore acquired Peters in a Tuesday trade with the Los Angeles Rams and the two-time Pro Bowler practiced Thursday and Friday before the team traveled to Seattle. Head Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Peters is likely to play “a lot,” and Peters felt he was ready for extended playing time.
Also inactive for the Ravens are quarterback Trace McSorley, offensive lineman Ben Powers and rookie defensive tackle Daylon Mack.
LT Duane Brown, DE Ziggy Ansah Inactive for Seahawks
The Seahawks will be without three key starters against the Ravens: left tackle Duane Brown (biceps), defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle) and safety Bradley McDougald (back).
Brown’s absence could create an issue for Seattle protecting quarterback Russell Wilson’s blindside. Ansah is one of Seattle’s best pass rushers, while McDougald will miss his first game after 31 consecutive starts. Right guard D.J. Fluker is active after being listed as questionable.
Also inactive for Seattle are wide receivers Gary Jennings and John Ursua, safety Lane Hill, and guard Jordan Roos
