Jeremy Maclin expected to play today against the Raiders

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Some good news for the Ravens arrived this morning ahead of the team’s Week 5 game against the Raiders as, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is expected to play.

According to the Ravens injury report, Maclin was a full participant in practice all week, but was still listed as questionable with a hand injury for this week’s game. However, per Rapoport’s report, the hand injury will not keep Maclin from facing the Raiders.

Having Maclin is huge for the Ravens offense, as he has been, by far, the most productive wide receiver for the Ravens this season. The Ravens are facing a secondary that has struggled this season, thus leaving Maclin, and all the receivers, a chance to have a big game.

Maclin being in will surely make life a little easier for Joe Flacco, who has liked throwing Maclin the ball. Breshad Perriman and Mike Wallace have done next to nothing this season, and Flacco having to rely on those two without Maclin could have proved problematic.

The Ravens will play the Raiders today at 4:05 ET, make sure to check out all the details for watching today’s game here:
