Yanda Doubtful To Play
The return of the Ravens' starting offensive line may be short-lived.
Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda is doubtful to play Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns due to a lingering shoulder injury. He did not practice at all this week.
Yanda missed back-to-back games against the New York Giants and New York Jets in October, but returned to face the rival Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday after the bye.
Yanda may have aggravated the injury, or perhaps just doesn't have enough time to rest it with the shortened week before Thursday Night Football.
If the six-time Pro Bowler can't suit up, the Ravens would likely turn to John Urschel or Ryan Jensen. Baltimore had its starting offensive line against the Steelers for the first time since Week 3. It hasn't lost a game yet with that first-team unit on the field.
Dixon Questionable After Being Full Participant
Rookie running back Kenneth Dixon appears on track to play against the Browns after being a full practice participant this week.
Dixon is listed as questionable, which is the best designation a player on the injury report can have.
The fourth-round rookie left late in Sunday's game with a chest contusion. He had his biggest role yet this season before leaving the game, rushing a season-high nine times for 13 yards. He also caught two passes.
Terrance West appears to still be the leading running back with Buck Allen as the No. 3 option. Allen impressed on special teams against the Steelers with a punt block.
Four Ravens Ruled Out
The Ravens ruled out outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot), cornerback Shareece Wright (thigh), tight end Crockett Gillmore (thigh) and rookie linebacker Kamalei Correa (thigh).
Wright was doubtful last week but ended up being inactive on gameday. The emergence of rookie fourth-round pick Tavon Young as the No. 2 cornerback has offset Wright's injury.
It will be the second straight game missed for Gillmore and Correa. Without Gillmore, the Ravens have just two tight ends with Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller.
Dumervil hasn't played in a month, and there's no timetable for his return. He suited up for two games in Weeks 4 and 5, but went back on the shelf when his surgically-repaired foot didn't feel quite right.
