Who’s Playing, Who’s Not vs. Tennessee Titans

Here’s a look at Friday’s injury report and what it means for both the Ravens and Titans ahead of Sunday's game:

CB Anthony Averett (hamstring), RB De’Lance Turner (hamstring) Are Out

Turner’s absence means running back Gus Edwards could be promoted from the practice squad for Sunday’s game.

“We’re going to have to consider that,” Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “That’s the obvious choice. We just have to see how that hamstring looks, feels. Either way, we’re very confident with either one of those guys. They’re both kind of in the same bucket. They do the same things.”

The Ravens could decide to dress just two running backs, Alex Collins and Javorius Allen, but Harbaugh said that would be risky.

“It’s tough to do that,” Harbaugh said. “It’s always an option. (But) you leave yourself a little light if you do something like that.”

CB Brandon Carr (knee), D /LB Anthony Levine (hamstring), DT Michael Pierce (foot), LB Tim Williams (hamstring), CB Tavon Young (hip) are questionable

Williams did not play Week 5 against Cleveland, and he has been a solid pass rusher with two sacks in four games. After not practicing Wednesday, Williams was a limited participant both Thursday and Friday.

Pierce also did not play Week 5 against the Browns, and he is one of the Ravens’ best run-stoppers. He was a limited participant in practice Friday after not practicing Wednesday and Thursday.

Young is the Ravens’ top nickel corner, and he was limited in practice Friday after not practicing Thursday. If Young cannot play, the cornerback rotation will be led by Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Carr, Jimmy Smith, and Anthony Levine. Recently- signed Cyrus Jones could also be available to play corner, even if he returns punts, after being signed to the 53-man roster earlier in the week.

“He plays slot corner,” Harbaugh said of Jones. “He’s in the mix; he’s in the depth chart there inside and outside. He’ll be the fifth corner in the rotations. Usually you play five corners at some point, so I expect him to play a little bit.”

Carr has started 169 career consecutive games at cornerback, the longest streak for any NFL defensive player. Though listed as questionable on the injury report, Carr was a full participant in Friday’s walkthrough, as was Levine.

Titans list two players out for Sunday

Linebackers Will Compton (hamstring) and safety Kenny Vaccaro (elbow) are out for the Titans. Four Titans were questionable – linebacker and ex-Raven Kamalei Correa (foot), linebackers Robert Spillane (knee) and Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) and defensive lineman Bennie Logan (elbow).
