As of yesterday, we learned that starting defensive tackle Brandon Williams was placed on the COVID-19 list despite not testing positive for the contraction of the virus.
In addition to Williams, here is the list of players who will not be playing in today’s game:
Ravens inactives: QB Trace McSorley, WR Chris Moore (thigh/finger), C Trystan Colon-Castillo, G Ben Bredeson, DT Derek Wolfe (neck/concussion) and DB Anthony Levine Sr. (abdomen). So WR Miles Boykin (thigh) is active and will play.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) October 18, 2020
With Williams already ruled out, the loss of Derek Wolfe will really put Baltimore’s young core of defensive linemen to the test against an Eagles team that loves running the ball.
Expect heavy snap counts from Justin Madubuike, Broderick Washington, and Justin Ellis.
Anthony Levine Sr. will not be playing today due to a lingering abdominal issue.
The Eagles face a similar situation to the Ravens as two of their top starting wide receivers will not be in for today’s matchup. Here are the inactives for the Eagles:
The Eagles will have to rely on the likes of Zach Ertz, Miles Sanders, Travis Fulgham, and Greg Ward to move the ball in the passing game.
Both Avonte Maddox and Lane Johnson will not be playing today due respective ankle injuries.
