The Baltimore Ravens have released their list of inactives for the team’s Week 8 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, and it’s good news for the team.
The Ravens went into the night with a whopping eight players listed as questionable. Of those eight, only one, linebacker Josh Bynes (quad), is among the team’s six inactive players.
The others, Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman, Gus Edwards, Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters, Ronnie Stanely, and Brandon Stephens, are all set to play in tonight’s game.
Andrews is probably the most notable after the star tight end failed to practice at all this week due to a knee injury. He was held without a catch for the first time this season on Sunday, although he did play the whole game.
There are no real surprises on the Ravens inactive list for Week 8
Along with Bynes, the likes of running back Mike Davis, wide receiver Tylan Wallace, offensive guard Ben Cleveland, defensive end Calais Campbell, and cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis are also inactive.
Campbell was the lone Ravens player listed as OUT going into the game as the veteran defensive lineman is dealing with an illness. The team should have him back for Week 9.
With Bynes out, the Ravens have made veteran linebacker A.J. Klein active for just the second time this season. Klein will be asked to fill in on special teams and could see some time on defense as well.
The remainder of the team’s inactives aren’t a big surprise. Davis was inactive last week following the return of Gus Edwards. Wallace is inactive again with Bateman back in the lineup. Cleveland is the odd man out in the offensive line room. Armour-Davis hasn’t been active since Week 3.
The Ravens will look to win two games in a row for the first time this season tonight against Tampa Bay. And fortunately, they’ll have the likes of Andrews, Bateman, and Edwards to help them do it.
