Ravens Have No Major Scratches For First Time This Season


The Ravens may be the healthiest they've been all season Sunday versus the Miami Dolphins.

A number of players may be battling the typical December aches and pains, but the Ravens don't have a single major scratch.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith, who missed the past two games with a back injury, will return to face the Dolphins at M&T Bank Stadium.

That's great news considering he's the team's top cornerback and that big-bodied Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker (back) is also active.

Baltimore's only other question mark heading into the game was wide receiver Kamar Aiken (thigh), who will also suit up.

The Ravens have had at least one big name on their gameday inactives list since the start of the season.

Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) missed the first three games of the year, then went back on the shelf for five more games.  Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs missed one (biceps). Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (toe) went down for four games and right guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder) missed three. Right tackle Rick Wagner missed one. Linebacker C.J. Mosley (thigh) missed two games and wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) missed two.

The Ravens made outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith active after he was scratched last week.

The Dolphins' biggest scratch is starting center Mike Pouncey (hip), though left tackle Brandon Albert (wrist) and left guard Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) will both play.

Miami's other scratches are cornerback Xavien Howard, linebacker Jelani Jenkins, tackle Bryce Harris, cornerback Jordan Lucas, tight end Thomas Duarte and wide receiver Rashawn Scott.
