The Baltimore Ravens will have two important members of their secondary active for their Week 13 game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that both cornerback Marlon Humphrey and safety Kyle Hamilton are expected to play in Week 13. Both players were listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Humphrey did not practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury but was a limited participant on Thursday before being upgraded to a full participant on Friday.

As for Hamilton, he was forced to miss last Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to a knee injury but returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday. Like Humphrey, Hamilton was also a full participant in Friday’s practice.

It’s not exactly a surprise that both players will play this Sunday, but it is notable and an encouraging sign for a Ravens team that has dealt with its fair share of injuries.

Marlon Humphrey and Kyle Hamilton aren’t the only players on the Ravens’ injury report in Week 13

The other big name on the final injury report is left tackle Ronnie Stanley. Stanley was held out of the team’s Week 12 game with an ankle injury and was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday before being given an off day on Friday.

If Stanley is unable to play, the Ravens would once again roll with Patrick Mekari who started in place of the former All-Pro left tackle last week.

Linebacker Del’Shawn Phillips is also questionable with a quad injury after popping up on the injury report on Thursday. If he is unable to play, veteran Josh Bynes could be active in his place, although his lack of special-teams snaps wouldn’t help his case.

Wide receiver Tylan Wallace was initially listed as out on the final injury report before being placed on the injured reserve on Saturday. The Ravens elevated DeSean Jackson from the practice squad for the third and final time and signed Binjimen Victor to the active roster.
