Ravens at Bengals: Yannick Ngakoue is OUT

The star pass rusher will sit out due to a thigh injury

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

In the most important week of the season for the Ravens, the team will be blessed with good health for the most part as the Ravens look to steamroll the Bengals and lock up their playoff spot.

The exceptions to a fully healthy Ravens team include two starters both on defense and on the offense that have had strong impacts on Baltimore’s success.

Here are Baltimore’s inactives:

Yannick Ngakoue and Jimmy Smith are two defensive starters that will not be playing in today’s regular season finale.

Offensively, Willie Snead and Patrick Mekari will not be playing. Both players have been seeing consistent action on the field this season, and their absences will need to be filled by key depth players at each position.

Jayron Kearse, a former Lions starting safety who Baltimore claimed off of waivers just days ago, will not be activated for today’s contest.

Let’s take a look at Cincinnati’s inactive list:

The Bengals will be without a number of key players for today.

Cornerbacks Mackensie Alexander and William Jackson, both starters, will be out today.

Rookie Logan Wilson, who intercepted Lamar Jackson in Week 5 earlier this season, will also be inactive today.
