In what is arguably the most important game for the Ravens all season, the team will benefit from the return of numerous starters on both sides of the ball.
Players such as Mark Andrews, Willie Snead IV, and Matthew Judon will be returning to action in tonight’s primetime divisional matchup.
Players that will not be suiting up have produced for the Ravens as of recent, however, some will not be able to do so tonight.
Here are Baltimore’s inactives:
Ravens inactives: TE Luke Willson (hip), C Trystan Colon-Castillo, DL Broderick Washington, OLB Jaylon Ferguson, CB Anthony Averett, CB Tramon Williams (thigh).— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) December 14, 2020
Luke Willson, who has started in place of Mark Andrews for the duration of his time missed, will be held out of tonight's game due to a hip injury.
With the return of Matthew Judon, Jaylon Ferguson, who has been a really solid contributor this season, will sit out as a healthy scratch.
Despite the return of Jimmy Smith, Baltimore’s secondary will be on the thinner side as Tramon Williams will be absent due to a thigh injury. Anthony Averett, who received a significant snap share against Dallas, will be held out as a healthy scratch due to sub par recent play.
Cleveland’s secondary will be a bit thinner as a top starter will be out of tonight’s game.
Additionally, a starting tight end will also be sitting out.
Here are Cleveland’s inactives:
WR Marvin Hall
CB Denzel Ward
DE Joe Jackson
After not participating in practice all week due to a neck injury, Austin Hooper will be out as rookie tight end Harrison Bryant assumes the starting position.
Denzel Ward has also been ruled out due to a calf injury that prevented him from logging in any practice time this week.
