Football is back, Ravens fans!
With only 46 players allowed to put on pads week to week, here are the seven inactive Ravens before the start of today’s game.

Additionally, here are the Dolphins’ inactives for this afternoon.
Notable inactive players include QB Trace McSorley, G Ben Powers, and OLB Jaylon Ferguson. Conclusively, coaches need more depth at other positions due to the hot Miami weather. They can’t afford to activate three QBs when McSorley would most likely not see the field even if he was active.
Bradley Bozeman received the starting nod at LG which gives reason as to why Powers is inactive. Coaches trust veteran utility offensive lineman James Hurst to be their backup rather than the inexperienced Powers.
With the back up pass rush depth including Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser, it may take a couple of weeks for Ferguson to insert himself with the pass rush rotation. Though talented, he will need time as do many rookie pass rushers.
