Who's Playing, Who's Not vs. Dolphins


The Ravens' already hobbled offensive line was without another key piece when the Ravens took the field for Friday's practice.

Starting right tackle Rick Wagner missed practice for a non-injury reason, but he is officially listed as probable for Sunday's matchup in Miami.

"Not a concern," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "He's fine."

While Wagner is fine, the Ravens do still have injury concerns elsewhere on offense.

TE Williams Ruled Out

Rookie tight end Maxx Williams won't play this week after suffering a concussion Monday against the Browns. He didn't practice all week and needs to be cleared by the medical staff before returning to the field.

With Williams out, the Ravens have just Crockett Gillmore and Nick Boyle as the healthy tight ends on the roster. The Ravens have gone into a game this year with only two tight ends healthy, so they don't necessarily need to make a roster move.

The injury is a tough blow for Williams, who had come on strong recently. He has 19 catches for 168 yards and a touchdowns this year.

Monroe Doubtful, Osemele Probable To Return

Left guard Kelechi Osemele practiced all week as a full participant, and he is probable to return after missing the last two games with a knee injury. Getting Osemele back in the lineup would be a boost for the offense, as he's one of the team's top blockers.

Ryan Jensen has filled it for Osemele the last two games.

Osemele is likely to return, but starting left tackle Eugene Monroe is doubtful to play again because of a shoulder issue. He suffered the injury against the Rams in Week 11 and hasn't practiced since.

James Hurst has filled in for Monroe when he's been out this year, and Hurst has actually seen more snaps than Monroe overall.

The only other player likely to miss the game because of an injury is wide receiver Marlon Brown (back). He missed last week's game and didn't practice all week, and is officially listed as doubtful.

Pouncey Listed As Questionable, James Out

The biggest question for the Dolphins on the injury front is the status of Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey (foot). He practiced on a limited basis during the week and is officially listed as questionable.

Dolphins Head Coach Dan Campbell indicated on Thursday that seeing the way Pouncey practiced made him more confident that the veteran lineman could play against the Ravens.

"I felt optimistic [Wednesday] and I certainly do now after watching him move and go through practice," Campbell said. "I feel a lot better about him playing Sunday."

The Dolphins, however, will be without starting right tackle Ja'Wuan James (toe). That could be an issue for their offensive line in slowing down outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, who had 3.5 sacks last year against Miami.

Miami has also ruled out defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (calf) and wide receiver Rishard Matthews (ribs). Wide receiver Kenny Stills (ankle) is the other lingering injury question, and he is listed as questionable.

Starting wide receiver Jarvis Landry was limited during practice because of a knee problem, but he is probable to play.

"I have no doubt that he'll be fine on game day," Campbell said about Landry. "We have to be smart with him and make sure that we take some reps off of him early in the week."
