The Baltimore Ravens are set to return a pair of important players when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14. Not only will running back J.K. Dobbins be back, but safety Marcus Williams is also set to make his long-awaited return as well.

Williams has been sidelined since the Ravens’ Week 5 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals when he suffered a broken wrist that would keep him sidelined for over two months.

Now, Williams will be returning for a crucial matchup against the Steelers this week. He’ll join a safety group that also features the likes of Kyle Hamilton, Chuck Clark, and Geno Stone.

Williams was proving to be arguably the team’s best free-agent signing of the offseason prior to his injury. The Ravens will certainly look forward to the return of their ball-hawking safety this week.

Other Ravens news

The Ravens made an additional roster move on Saturday elevating undrafted rookie quarterback Anthony Brown to the active roster ahead of Sunday’s matchup.

Brown will serve as the backup to Tyler Huntley against the Steelers with Lamar Jackson sidelined due to a knee injury. This marks the first practice squad elevation for Brown this season.

The Ravens will likely be forced to elevate Brown again next week if Jackson is forced to miss another week.

AFC North news

The Steelers will welcome back kicker Chris Boswell in Week 14 as they released Matthew Wright on Saturday. Boswell has been sidelined with a groin injury since Week 7.

In Boswell’s place, Wright connected on 12-of-14 field goal attempts and made all seven of his extra points. Boswell made just 12-of-16 field goals prior to his stint on the injured reserve.
