Despite early morning fears that CB Jimmy Smith wouldn't be suiting up for today’s game, fans shouldn't worry — as Smith will be active.
At the same time, a handful of rookies and players with one year of experience will not be playing in today's game.
Here is the inactive list for the Ravens:
DB Jimmy Smith (back) is active for the Ravens. Their inactive list is QB Trace McSorley, RB Justice Hill (thigh), WR Chris Moore (finger), OL Ben Bredeson, DT Justin Madubuike (knee) and S Geno Stone.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) September 13, 2020
Rookie G/T Tyre Phillips, who was officially listed as questionable for today’s game with an ankle injury, will be playing and could potentially have a role in certain situations.
The inactive statuses of Justice Hill, Justin Madubuike, and Chris Moore shouldn't come as a surprise as each player was dealing with their respective injuries all throughout training camp.
Trace McSorley, Ben Bredeson, and Geno Stone are the team’s healthy scratches for today's contest.
Let’s take a look at who won't be playing for Cleveland today.
Browns inactives:— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) September 13, 2020
WR Donovan Peoples-Jones
CB Greedy Williams
CB Kevin Johnson
LB Mack Wilson
T Chris Hubbard
DE Joe Jackson
The Browns will be without a few starters today. Cleveland’s secondary appears a bit thin as both Greedy Williams and Kevin Johnson will not be playing. That leaves the likes of Denzel Ward and Terrance Mitchell, both of whom will handle the majority of starting cornerback snaps today.
Mack Wilson is dealing with a long-term injury and was not expected to play in today’s contest.
