Ravens sign cornerback Chris Greenwood

Ravens fill out 53-man roster with a cornerback.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

It was inevitable that the Ravens would fill out the 53-man roster with a cornerback.

And that's what they did on Wednesday by signing cornerback Chris Greenwood off of the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad. Greenwood does have some game experience, appearing in three contests with the Lions in 2013. He was a fifth-round draft pick by the Lions in 2012.

Greenwood signed with the Vikings' practice squad after failing to make Detroit's 53-man roster out of training camp.

With Greenwood the latest corner to step foot on the roster, it can be assumed that both Rashaan Melvin and Antoine Cason will dress for Sunday's game against the Texans. Those two, along with Lardarius Webb and Anthony Levine, will probably be available on game days the rest of the way this year.

In the three games Greenwood appeared in for Detroit a year ago he made six tackles.
