After two missed games due to an ankle injury, Ravens WR coach David Culley expects Marquise Brown to play following the bye week.

This is critical for the Ravens as their opponent coming out of the bye is none other than the New England Patriots, who are currently perfect through seven weeks (7-0).

Lamar Jackson and the offense will love the return of Hollywood as through five games played, he’s totaled 21 receptions on 39 targets for 326 yards and three touchdowns. He’s a threat to score on any play and his addition of speed into the mix can create mismatches and breakdowns in any secondary.

There’s no time like the bye week to get healthy and ready for the second-half of the schedule. There are a few players who could return or get back to 100-percent following the full week of rest, including three cornerbacks (Anthony Averett, Maurice Canady, Jimmy Smith). All three were listed as questionable or doubtful with their respective injuries. If all can suit up next Sunday, the Patriots offense may face their toughest challenge yet.
