The Ravens used their bye week to their advantage to get healthy for what will be their most important game thus far.

A number of players who were frequently listed on the injury report during the last few weeks have no injury designation, and the timing couldn't be better.

That being said, the Ravens will be without Mark Ingram, which will allow for more opportunities to be had for Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins.

Here is Baltimore’s full inactives list:

Players such as Justin Ellis, Jihad Ward, and Broderick Washington have done a fine job when filling in for injured players like Derek Wolfe. However, with the addition of Yannick Ngakoue as well as the return of other defensive linemen from injury, these depth players are the odd men out.

Chris Moore will be making his debut today as he battled a finger injury early on this season and found himself as a healthy scratch more recently. Moore provides valuable depth to an unproven receiving corps.

The Steelers also appear healthy for today’s game as they only have one starter who will not be suiting up.

Here are Pittsburgh’s inactives:

  • QB Josh Dobbs
  • DB Mike Hilton
  • DB Jordan Dangerfield
  • LB Ulysees Gilbert III
  • DT Carlos Davis
  • T Derwin Gray
  • TE Zach Gentry

The absence of Mike Hilton serves as a big advantage for the Ravens as Hilton has repeatedly demonstrated strong play throughout this season.

Chris Wormley also will not be playing as he was dealing with a knee injury all week and was placed on injured reserve.

Derek Watt, who was a limited participant in practice all week, will play.
