For the second week in a row, the Ravens appear to be in danger of missing key contributors on both sides of the offense and defense. For multiple players, lingering injuries resulting in little to no practice reps may ultimately lead to them not being able to suit up this Sunday afternoon. Here are the Ravens injuries:

Once again, both Patrick Onwuasor and Marquise Brown did not practice all week. Despite a questionable game status, many pundits remain less than hopeful about them suiting up. If Brown is ruled out, the Ravens will have to rely on their other receivers who performed well last week against the Bengals. With the potential absence of Onwuasor, as well as the recent departure of Kenny Young via trade, Josh Bynes and L.J. Fort will see plenty of snaps throughout the entire game.
Cornerbacks Anthony Averett and Maurice Canady did not practice all week, which accounts for their questionable designation. The absence of one, or worst-case scenario, both players, would put extra pressure on the starting corners and the recently acquired Marcus Peters to step up and contain the Seahawks’ talented receivers.
The Seahawks also have many players with questionable statuses. Multiple key contributors could potentially miss Sunday’s game. Here are the Seahawks’ injuries:
Out: TE Will Dissly (achilles)
Doubtful: S Lano Hill (elbow)
Questionable: OT Duane Brown (biceps), S Bradley McDougald (back), DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle), G D.J. Fluker (hamstring) and DE Quinton Jefferson (oblique)
As one of Russell Wilson’s favorite targets, the absence of Will Dissly will be meaningful as Wilson will have to rely more on his WRs. Additionally, numerous starters are questionable to play. Should any of the players listed as questionable be deemed inactive on Sunday, that would surely pay dividends for the Ravens who, with many injuries themselves, would relish any breaks.
Tune in this Sunday at 4:25 as the Ravens face the Seahawks in Seattle in what will be a loud, physical, and meaningful matchup before the Ravens head into their Week 8 bye.
