Ronnie Stanley Is Active as Healthy Ravens Face Browns


There were no late surprises regarding the Ravens' health, and they entered Sunday's game with a healthy roster to face the Cleveland Browns.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (concussion) is active and expected to return to the starting lineup after a one-game absence. Stanley made the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career and is the highest-graded left tackle in football, according to Pro Football Focus. Stanley was listed as questionable, but he practiced all week and the Ravens will welcome his presence protecting Lamar Jackson's blindside. Jackson was sacked four times during Cleveland's 40-25 victory over the Ravens in Week 4.

Inside linebacker Chris Board (concussion) is also active after sitting out Week 15 against the New York Jets. Board is one of Baltimore's key players on special teams and he was missed against the Jets. Head Coach John Harbaugh called special teams "an area of concern," after the Ravens had a punt blocked and the Jets averaged 25.6 yards on kickoff returns and 16.0 yards on punt returns.

Inactive for the Ravens are quarterback Trace McSorley, wide receiver Jaleel Scott, cornerbacks Anthony Averett and Iman Marshall; guards Parker Ehinger and Ben Powers and defensive tackle Justin Ellis.

Beckham Jr., Richardson Both Active for Browns

For the Browns, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (groin) is active despite being a limited participant in Friday's practice. He was not listed as questionable on the injury report, and Beckham has played with a groin issue throughout the season. Beckham is one of the NFL's most explosive wide receivers, but he was limited to two catches for 20 yards in Week 4 while being shadowed by Ravens Pro Bowl cornerback Marlon Humphrey.    

Two other Cleveland starters are active after being listed as questionable – center J.C. Tretter (knee) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (back). However, Cleveland starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (knee) will miss his third straight game. Also inactive for the Browns are wide receiver Taylor Taywan, safety J.T. Hassell, offensive tackle Kendall Lamm, guard Drew Forbes, and tight ends David Njoku and Pharoah Brown.
