OWINGS MILLS, Md. — A new injury added another wrinkle to the Ravens’ right guard competition just days before Sunday’s season opener against Cleveland.

Rookie third-round pick Tyre Phillips was absent with what was listed as an ankle injury on Thursday. The Mississippi State product emerged as the potential favorite to start at right guard late in training camp, but his addition to the injury report further clouds the decision as to who might assume Marshal Yanda’s old spot on the offensive line.

Veteran newcomer D.J. Fluker began the summer as the favorite at right guard, but Baltimore may also consider a younger option such as Patrick Mekari, who worked extensively at center during camp as Matt Skura continued to work his way back to full strength from a serious knee injury. Head coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week he wouldn’t announce his starting offensive line for Week 1 prior to Sunday’s game.

Wide receiver Chris Moore (finger), running back Justice Hill (thigh), and defensive tackle Justin Madubuike (knee) remained absent from practice, further decreasing the likelihood of their availability against the Browns.

There were no changes to Cleveland’s injury report from Wednesday.

Below is Thursday’s full injury report:

BALTIMORE
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: RB Justice Hill (thigh), DT Justin Madubuike (knee), WR Chris Moore (finger), G Tyre Phillips (ankle)

CLEVELAND
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: OT Chris Hubbard (ankle), CB Kevin Johnson (liver), CB Greedy Williams (shoulder), LB Mack Wilson (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: CB M.J. Stewart Jr. (hamstring), C JC Tretter (knee)
