The Ravens, though they don’t have many players on the injury report, have multiple impact players that may not suit up this Sunday against the Bengals. Most notably, Marquise Brown and Patrick Onwuasor, both with ankle injuries, are in serious danger of missing Sunday’s game after not practicing all week.
Harbaugh said both Marquise Brown and Patrick Onwuasor will be game-time decisions. He Hoped they would practice today, but they couldn’t.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) October 11, 2019
In addition to Brown and Onwuasor, Jimmy Smith will most likely miss another game as he is still nursing his MCL sprain. Nonetheless, Smith should be back on the field soon, according to Coach Harbaugh.
Five Ravens not practicing: WR Marquise Brown (ankle), OL Ben Powers, ILB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle), CB Jimmy Smith (knee) and OLB Pernell McPhee (traditionally gets vet days on Friday).— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) October 11, 2019
The Bengals, on the other hand, have many more players on their injury report. Seven players have already been declared inactive.
#Bengals injury report doubles as the inactives list most likely with Carlos Dunlap, A.J. Green, Cordy Glenn, Andre Smith, Ryan Glasgow and Kerry Wynn all ruled OUT.— Jay Morrison (@JayMorrisonATH) October 11, 2019
Add Jake Dolegala, and there are your 7 inactives Sunday.
As expected, A.J. Green is yet to be cleared to play with his lingering ankle injury that he sustained before the beginning of the regular season. The absence of Carlos Dunlap will give tackles Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr. easier times, too. The injuries to starting linemen Cordy Glenn and Andre Smith will create opportunities for the Ravens pass rush to take advantage of the Bengals’ second-stringers.
The Ravens will look to go 4-2 in total and 2-1 in the division as they face the 0-5 Bengals at home 1:00 pm this Sunday.
