Hoping to win their first road game of the 2013 season, the Ravens look to put the bad taste of last week’s loss in Buffalo behind them as they take on the 3-1 Miami Dolphins.
However, they’ll have to do it while being severely undermanned at the wide receiver position as Jacoby Jones (knee) and Marlon Brown (hamstring) were both ruled inactive for Sunday’s game. It wasn’t surprising to see Jones held back for another week after just returning to the practice field from an MCL sprain that’s sidelined him since the season opener, but Brown appeared to be moving well during Friday’s practice and told reporters he was feeling good after the workout.
Couple those inactives with Saturday’s release of veteran wideout Brandon Stokley and the Ravens were down to just three active wide receivers on Sunday as Torrey Smith, Deonte Thompson, and Tandon Doss are available. Thompson sustained a concussion in the Week 4 loss in Buffalo but was cleared over the weekend to make his return.
The Ravens also decided to deactivate newly-acquired left tackle Eugene Monroe after only two days of practice time in Owings Mills. It was always going to be a major stretch for the fifth-year lineman to absorb enough of the playbook to be able to start against the Dolphins, but coach John Harbaugh had left the door open for the former Jaguars lineman to play in Miami if he felt comfortable enough with his preparation over the weekend.
This means veteran left tackle Bryant McKinnie will start against a Dolphins defensive front that will include returning defensive end Cameron Wake, who was out last week with a knee injury.
The good news for the Ravens is that cornerback Lardarius Webb is active after missing most of last week’s game against the Bills after tweaking his hamstring in the first half. Rookie linebacker Arthur Brown (pectoral strain) is also active and will make his return following a two-week absence due to injury, which should help the Baltimore pass defense.
The Ravens are 3-5 in the all-time regular-season series with the Dolphins and are 1-4 in Miami, which doesn’t include their two postseason wins at Sun Life Stadium. Baltimore won the last meeting between these teams in 2010, a 26-10 final at M&T Bank Stadium.
The referee for Sunday’s game will be Carl Cheffers.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-80s with a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms in Miami.
The Ravens will be wearing purple jerseys with white pants while Miami will go with an all-white look for Sunday’s game.
Here are Sunday’s inactives:
BALTIMORE
WR Jacoby Jones
WR Marlon Brown
T Eugene Monroe
NT Terrence Cody
OL Jah Reid
C Ryan Jensen
DE Marcus Spears
MIAMI
QB Pat Devlin
RB Mike Gillislee
CB Dimitri Patterson
CB Will Davis
LB Josh Kaddu
G Danny Watkins
G Dallas Thomas.
