Starting Offensive Tackles Look Ready to Go
Starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley looks ready to return to the lineup after missing last week’s game with a concussion.
He told reporters that he expects to play, and he is officially listed as questionable on the injury report after practicing fully Thursday and Friday.
“I do believe I’ve cleared enough hurdles and passed everything that I needed,” he said Friday.
Starting right tackle Austin Howard is also in line to play after missing practice time with a knee issue. He had an off-day Wednesday before returning as a full participant Friday and Saturday. He is officially listed as questionable, but he told reporters he fully expects to play.
Mosley ‘Ready to Go’ Despite Ankle Injury
Starting inside linebacker C.J. Mosley missed practice time this week with an ankle injury that he sustained late in Sunday’s 23-0 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
He returned to practice Saturday as a full participant and is officially listed as questionable, but told reporters that he expects to play Monday.
Head Coach John Harbaugh indicated after last week’s game that the injury wasn’t serious, and he reiterated that Saturday.
“He is going to be fine, he will be ready to go,” Harbaugh said.
Veteran outside linebacker Terrell Suggs also popped up on the injury report Friday with an ankle issue, and he’s officially listed as questionable. Starting cornerback Jimmy Smith is questionable with his Achilles issue, but he’s dealt with that injury all season and has yet to miss a game.
Eluemunor Ruled Out
The only player who definitely won’t play for the Ravens is rookie offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor. He has been ruled out with a shoulder injury after missing practice throughout the week.
His absence likely means that Luke Bowanko would fill in at right guard if starter Matt Skura were to get injured.
Texans Have Crowded Injury Report
While the Ravens are getting healthier, the Texans are dealing with some significant injuries.
They’ve already lost starting quarterback Deshaun Watson and defensive end J.J. Watt for the season, and they also have 16 players listed on this week’s injury report.
They ruled out wide receiver Will Fuller (ribs), offensive tackle Julien Davenport (shoulder) and guard Greg Mancz (shoulder) after they missed practice time through the week.
They have 13 players listed as questionable, including wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (foot), running back Alfred Blue (foot) and cornerback Kevin Johnson (concussion).
