Ravens-Colts: Inactives and pre-game notes

The Ravens appear ready to give cornerback Lardarius Webb his second look at game action this season as they take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
For just the second time this year, the sixth-year defensive back is active after not being listed on the injury report for the second straight week. After missing all of training camp and the preseason with back spasms, Webb is continuing to work himself back into better playing shape in terms of explosiveness and flexibility, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
The Ravens would certainly benefit from a healthy Webb against quarterback Andrew Luck and Indianapolis’ top-ranked passing game, but it remains to be seen how much action the veteran cornerback will see at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Linebacker Terrell Suggs (groin) is active and will play despite missing two practices this past week and only working on a limited basis on Friday. However, defensive end Chris Canty (illness/knee) and third-string tight end Phillip Supernaw (thigh) were both listed as inactive for Sunday’s game.
Third-year defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson is expected to get the start in place of Canty, and the recently-acquired Lawrence Guy is active for the first time after being claimed off waivers from San Diego two weeks ago. The former Chargers and Colts defensive end will likely back up Tyson at the 5-technique spot.
As expected, left tackle Eugene Monroe (knee surgery) and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (meniscus) remained out with their respective injuries.
For Indianapolis, defensive tackle Arthur Jones was inactive after already being ruled out on Friday. The former Ravens lineman hoped to be able to play against his old team, but the high ankle sprain he suffered a few weeks ago has yet to fully heal.
The referee for Sunday’s game is Walt Anderson.
The Ravens will be wearing white jerseys with black pants while Indianapolis dons blue tops with white pants.
The roof will be opened at Lucas Oil Stadium with temperatures in the mid-50s with cloudy skies and winds up to 12 miles per hour, according to Weather.com.
Sunday marks the 11th all-time meeting between the Ravens and Indianapolis in the regular season with the Colts holding a 7-3 lead in the series. Baltimore is without a win in five total trips to Indianapolis and is 1-2 in postseason play against the Colts.
