The Baltimore Ravens released their second injury report of the week on Tuesday in preparation for their Thursday night showdown with the Miami Dolphins.

And considering how many injuries the Ravens have been forced to deal with this season, it should come as no surprise that there were seven total players on the list.

It should be noted that this is simply an estimation as the team didn’t actually practice, given the short week they’re facing. Still, there are a few things we could take away.

Below is a look at the Ravens’ Week 10 injury report as of Tuesday evening.

The Ravens should see the return of a few injured players on Thursday

Even with seven players listed on the injury report, this update is probably news for Baltimore. Of the seven players on the list, five of them were either full or limited participants.

There’s a good chance that all five of those players are able to suit up for Thursday’s game.

Wide receiver Marquise Brown was banged up this past week, but he was a full participant and should be close to 100 percent for the Dolphins game.

Meanwhile, the Ravens are also hoping to see the returns of wide receiver Sammy Watkins and nose tackle Brandon Williams who both missed this past Sunday’s game.

Watkins has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since Week 5, and his return should allow the Ravens to play a game with their top three wide receivers for the first time this season.

The prognosis isn’t as promising for running back Latavius Murray and offensive lineman Patrick Mekari who were both listed as “did not participate” in Tuesday’s walkthrough.

Murray and Mekari have missed the last few weeks with ankle injuries and it’s probable that they will be sidelined this week as well.

Still, the encouraging news about tight end Nick Boyle, who is slated to make his season debut after rehabbing his devastating knee injury last season, is enough to make up for it.

Wednesday’s final injury report will be more telling, but for now, this should provide us with a good idea of which players will be suiting up Thursday night.
