The Ravens have promoted tight end Phillip Supernaw from the practice squad, filling the place of injured starter Owen Daniels (knee).
Baltimore waived tight end Ryan Taylor to make room for Supernaw. Taylor is more of a special teams weapon while Supernaw has shown more pass-catching ability in practice.
The Ravens may need more of that pass-catching on the roster with Daniels (27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns) sidelined.
Rookie third-round pick Crockett Gillmore will start, but he's more of a blocker. Supernaw will likely be the second active tight end against Cincinnati.
Like Daniels, Supernaw is a former Houston Texan. He came to Baltimore with Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak and Tight Ends Coach Brian Pariani this offseason. The second-year player was active for one game last year with Houston and did not record any statistics.
Supernaw spent the summer with the Ravens and was a frequent target in practice. He did not make a catch in the preseason, however, and has been active for just one previous regular-season game in Week 4 against Carolina. He did not make a catch.
