Heading into Week 4 with a 2-1 record, the Baltimore Ravens will be shorthanded in certain positions due to injuries sustained by starters stemming from last week’s loss versus the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
Both younger as well as depth players will be counted on to step up for the Ravens. Despite the Ravens having a better overall team as well as more depth across all cylinders, certain guys will be put to the test as vacancies will be filled due to injury.
Here are Baltimore’s inactives:
Ravens inactives: QB Trace McSorley, WR Chris Moore (finger/thigh), LT Ronnie Stanley (shoulder), DE Derek Wolfe (elbow), DT Justin Madubuike (knee), S Geno Stone. Jimmy Smith is indeed active, as is Ben Bredeson for his NFL debut.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) October 4, 2020
The most notable absences for today are Ronnie Stanley and Derek Wolfe. D.J. Fluker will be manning the left tackle spot for today’s game while the likes of Jihad Ward, Broderick Washington, and Justin Ellis will rotate along the defensive line.
Despite being a game-time decision, Jimmy Smith will suit up.
Washington will be without their star rookie pass-rusher due to a groin injury sustained last Sunday. Additionally, turf toe will be the reason for one of Washington’s starting receivers not being able to suit up for today.

Chase Young and Steven Sims headline Washington’s starters that will not be playing today.
In place of Sims, expect Dontrelle Inman and Isaiah Wright to find more targets.
Nate Orchard was bought up from the Washington practice squad to provide depth for the absence of Young.
