On Friday, the Ravens designated both Joe Flacco and James Hurst as out, leaving rookies Lamar Jackson and Orlando Brown Jr. to fill in their spots. But these won’t be the only rookie replacements today as the Ravens announced their full inactives list:

Ravens inactives list:

  • QB Joe Flacco
  • G/T James Hurst
  • WR Jordan Lasley (R)
  • OLB Tim Williams
  • CB Tavon Young
  • RB Alex Collins
  • DT Zach Sieler

With Collins out for today, this leaves the running back competition up for UDFA rookie Gus Edwards Jr. to get his snaps in one more time. Against the Bengals, Edwards Jr. and Jackson both rushed for over 100 yards.

Also, with the absence of Tavon Young we may see Anthony Averett receive more snaps as he can cover the slot well.

This could be a big game to show the future talent on this roster. Not only do they have a few players filling in for starters, the tight end unit right now features both Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst, two rookies already on the field getting snaps and building a rapport for seasons to come.
