Moses doubtful, M. Williams questionable to play for Ravens against Seattle


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — After missing his first game in nine years earlier this season, Ravens right tackle Morgan Moses is likely to be sidelined again for Sunday’s clash with Seattle.

The 32-year-old continues to deal with a shoulder injury sustained in the Week 4 win at Cleveland, an ailment that sidelined him for the following week’s game in Pittsburgh. Moses exited late in last Sunday’s 31-24 win at Arizona and didn’t practice all week despite being an observer on the sideline for portions of those workouts. Versatile reserve Patrick Mekari is expected to start at right tackle as he did in the Oct. 8 loss to the Steelers.

Following Friday’s practice, head coach John Harbaugh left open the possibility of Moses being active despite missing the entire practice week, but the Ravens officially listed him as doubtful on the final injury report released later in the day.

“He could play without practicing. There’s no doubt about it,” Harbaugh said. “We just have to see how [the shoulder] feels. He wanted to practice today, [but] we just nixed that. That’s the kind of guy Morgan is. He’s old school. He wants to get out there.”

Prior to the shoulder injury, Moses hadn’t missed a game since the end of his rookie season in 2014.

Baltimore officially listed free safety Marcus Williams as questionable after he was a limited practice participant all week. Williams hasn’t played since hurting his hamstring in the Week 6 win over Tennessee in London, and backup Geno Stone has taken full advantage of the absence by registering an interception in each of the last three games to give him an NFL-leading five entering Week 9.

Stone’s superb play and Williams’ physical concerns — he also suffered a pectoral injury in the season opener — could prompt Baltimore to play it safe for another week to make sure the starting free safety is as healthy as possible before returning to action. The Ravens could also activate veteran Daryl Worley from injured reserve, which would give them more depth at safety behind Stone and Kyle Hamilton.


“He did well. Hamstrings are tricky,” said Harbaugh about Williams. “We’ll just have to see going into the game. It’ll probably be right up to it. We’ll see where he’s at.”

After missing back-to-back practices with an illness, reserve cornerback Rock Ya-Sin was designated as questionable and listed as a full participant for Friday’s workout, leaving little doubt about his availability.

Despite missing practice time earlier this week, left tackle Ronnie Stanley (shoulder), running back Gus Edwards (toe), outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle/knee), and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) do not carry a game status designation for Sunday’s game. Rookie running back Keaton Mitchell is also expected to play after missing last Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury.

The Seahawks designated four players as questionable for Week 9, a list headlined by starting right guard Phil Haynes (calf) and backup right guard Anthony Bradford (ankle).

Below is the full injury report for Week 9: 

DOUBTFUL: OT Morgan Moses (shoulder)
QUESTIONABLE: S Marcus Williams (hamstring), DB Daryl Worley (shoulder), CB Rock Ya-Sin (illness)

QUESTIONABLE: G Anthony Bradford (ankle), NT Austin Faoliu (knee), G Phil Haynes (calf), RB Kenny McIntosh (knee)
