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


Zuttah Questionable, Monroe Probable

The status of Baltimore's offensive line is the biggest question injury-wise going into Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The Ravens have two starters dealing with injuries, as center Jeremy Zuttah and left tackle Eugene Monroe are both nursing shoulder issues.

Monroe appears further along in his recovery, as he is listed as probable to play. He was a full-practice participant both Thursday and Friday.

Zuttah didn't practice until Friday when he was a full participant, and he is officially listed as questionable. He went down in the Chargers game, and the Ravens hope that the extra time off during the bye was enough rest to get him back on the field without missing a game.

"He was out here today for the full practice," Harbaugh said about Zuttah. "I'm going to go back and look at the tape and see how he held up, standing and punching and all that kind of stuff. We'll see how he looks, but there were no setbacks during practice that I'm aware of."

If Zuttah is out, the Ravens will turn to John Urschel to get the start at center. Urschel struggled with his shotgun snaps in relief of Zuttah two weeks ago, but he's spent some extra time working on those issues to resolve them ahead of Sunday's game.

Outside of Zuttah and Monroe, the Ravens aren't dealing with any big injury concerns.

Wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) has been ruled out as expected. Tight end Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and cornerback Tray Walker (concussion) are the only other players listed with injuries, and they are both probable to play.* *

Urban Completes First Week of Practice

Defensive end Brent Urban wrapped up his first full week of practice after returning from a torn biceps muscle in training camp.

Urban isn't currently on the 53-man roster, and Harbaugh wouldn't comment on whether the Ravens would activate him for Sunday's game.

But Harbaugh did say the second-year defender has impressed the coaching staff during the week of practice.

"Brent looked good," Harbaugh said. "He's coming along really well."

The Ravens actually used a padded practice day to get Urban and some of the other young defensive linemen more game-like experience. Those reps are critical for Urban considering he has yet to take a snap in an NFL game.

"That was really valuable, and he looked good doing it," Harbaugh said. "We just wanted to see him get in there and get some contact the first week back, and he did well."

Receivers Questionable For Jaguars

Jacksonville is dealing with some injury concerns going into the weekend.

Wide receivers Allen Hurns (foot/thigh) and Marqise Lee (hamstring) are both listed as questionable. Hurns didn't practice until Friday, when he was a limited participant. Lee practiced all week, but the hamstring injury has been a lingering issue for him.

Playing without Hurns would be a heavy blow to Jacksonville's offense, as he has 635 receiving yards and six touchdowns this year. Lee doesn't have anywhere close to that kind of production – he has three catches for 40 yards – but he is a big-play threat with great speed.

The Jaguars have also already ruled out reserve receiver Rashad Greene (thumb) and safety James Sample (shoulder). The other injury questions for the Jaguars are to defensive tackle Michael Bennet (hamstring) and linebacker Dan Skuta (groin), who are both questionable.

Starting tight end Julius Thomas (abdomen) is probable and expected to play after being a full participant all week in practice.
