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

Wallace, Maclin, Perriman All Questionable

The status of Baltimore's receiving corps is up in the air heading into Thursday's matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

The Ravens have five of their six receivers on this week's injury report, and top wideouts Mike Wallace (concussion), Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) are all questionable to play. Michael Campanaro (shoulder) and Chris Matthews (thigh) are both doubtful to play.

The only fully healthy receiver on the roster is Griff Whalen, who the Ravens signed less than a week ago. The injuries have even created uncertainty for Head Coach John Harbaugh about who the team will have available from week-to-week.

"Whoever you see jogging out there at kickoff, they'll be playing," Harbaugh said Monday. "Up until that point, I don't know."

Getting Wallace, Maclin and Perriman back would go a long way for the offense. Maclin has missed the last two games, and Perriman went down in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears. Wallace was hurt on the second series of last week's game in Minnesota. 

Those top three receivers give the Ravens a vertical threat, and their returns would be significant. Maclin and Wallace were limited in practice throughout the week, but Perriman was upgraded to a full participant Wednesday, which is an encouraging sign.

The Ravens may also get right guard Matt Skura back in the mix this week after he's missed the last two games with a knee injury. He was a limited participant in practice all week and is officially questionable to play.

West, M. Williams Both Ruled Out

The Ravens ruled out running back Terrance West (calf) and tight end Maxx Williams (ankle) after they missed the entire week of practice. This will be the third-straight game West has missed and the second-straight for Williams.

The ankle injury has hindered Williams throughout the season, and he re-aggravated it against the Bears two weeks ago.

The other player unlikely to suit up is outside linebacker Tim Williams (thigh), who was limited in practice this week. He also hasn't played the last two games.

Five Starting Defenders Questionable to Play

The Ravens have five starting defenders listed on the injury report this week, and they are all questionable to play.

That list includes safeties Eric Weddle (ankle) and Tony Jefferson (ankle), outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (knee), linebacker Patrick Onwuasor (knee) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (Achilles).

None of them has missed games this year with injuries, and the Ravens have likely been cautious with them during a short week of rest.

Defensive back Anthony Levine (back) is also questionable to play, but he's missed practice time this year and still been able to play every game.

The only other player on the injury report is tight end Benjamin Watson (knee), who is questionable. The Ravens have limited his practice reps throughout the season, so it would be a surprise if he misses the game.

Dolphins Rule Out Cutler

Matt Moore will officially start at quarterback for the Dolphins, as the team ruled out Jay Cutler (ribs) this week. Guard Anthony Steen (foot) has also been ruled out.

Cutler went down in Sunday's game and could be sidelined for a few weeks.  Moore is the team's third-string quarterback, as Miami already lost starter Ryan Tannehill for the season.

Left tackle Laremy Tunsil (knee), receiver DeVante Parker (ankle), defensive end Andre Branch (groin) and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (ankle) are all listed as questionable to play.
