Ray Rice, Torrey Smith Both Active


The Ravens will play Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bengals with most of their full roster healthy.

Baltimore came into the weekend with five key players questionable to play, and all but one of them will suit up.

Running back Ray Rice (thigh), wide receiver Torrey Smith (thigh), outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) and center Gino Gradkowski (knee) are all active after being limited in practice throughout the week.

The biggest loss is starting defensive lineman Arthur Jones, who is out because of a concussion suffered last week against the Patriots. He has been one of the team's best defenders this season, registering 53 tackles and four sacks.

With Jones out, second-year lineman DeAngelo Tyson is expected to see increased time. Rookie Brandon Williams is also active for the first time since Week 11 against Chicago.

The only other injury-related inactive is cornerback Asa Jackson (thigh). Tight end Dallas Clark, safety Omar Brown, offensive lineman Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and outside linebacker John Simon are all healthy scratches.

For the Bengals, they are without their top two tight ends. Tyler Eifert is out with a neck injury and Jermaine Gresham is sidelined with a hamstring problem.

The other big question for the Bengals was the status of Pro Bowl middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who suffered a concussion last week. He has been cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol and is expected to start.

Defensive tackle Devon Still, cornerback Terrence Newman, running back Rex Burkhead, wide receiver Ryan Whalen and offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson are also incactive.
