Starting Guard Tyre Phillips Inactive vs. Bengals

Left: G Tyre Phillips; Right: G/C Patrick Mekari

After winning the starting right guard competition as a rookie, Tyre Phillips will miss his first game of the season.

Phillips (shoulder) is inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals after being listed as doubtful. Second-year offensive lineman Patrick Mekari started at right guard in place of Phillips. Mekari started five games at center last season after Matt Skura went down with a season-ending knee injury.

Ravens rookie defensive tackle Justin Madubuike will make his NFL debut. The third-round pick from Texas A&M suffered a knee injury during training camp, but is expected to be part of the defensive line rotation this season behind starters Calais Campbell, Brandon Williams and Derek Wolfe. Madubuike had some strong days in training camp prior to his injury. Defensive back Marcus Gilchrist is also active and will make his Ravens debut.

Joining Phillips as inactive for Baltimore are quarterback Trace McSorley, wide receiver Chris Moore, running back Justice Hill, offensive lineman Trystan Colon-Castillo, and defensive linemen Justin Ellis and Broderick Washington.

For the Cincinnati Bengals, top running back Joe Mixon (shin) is active as expected after being listed as questionable.

Inactive are cornerback Mackensie Alexander wide receiver John Ross, linebacker Markus Bailey, defensive tackle Andrew Brown, offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland, running back Trayveon Williams and kicker Justin Seibert. Randy Bullock, who is 12 for 13 on field goal attempts this season, will handle the placekicking duties for Cincinnati.
