The Baltimore Ravens have released their list of inactives ahead of their Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and there are a few very notable names.

Of course, the most notable absence is star quarterback Lamar Jackson who will miss his first game this season after injuring his knee in last week’s game.

Jackson was listed as doubtful on the final injury report and was never expected to play. Tyler Huntley will serve as the starter this week while undrafted rookie Anthony Brown has been elevated to be the backup.

Right guard Kevin Zeitler is also out after being listed as questionable on the final injury report with a knee injury. Zeitler practiced in a limited capacity on Friday but it wasn’t enough for the Ravens to feel comfortable with him playing.

That means the Ravens will be down their best offensive lineman against the Steelers with the likes of Ben Cleveland and Patrick Mekari most likely to fill in as the starter.

In positive Ravens offensive line news, Baltimore will return Ronnie Stanley this week. Stanley is active after missing the last two weeks with an ankle injury.

The Ravens are without multiple very important players in Week 14

The remainder of the team’s inactives list consists of cornerback Damarion Williams, linebacker Josh Bynes, tight ends Charlie Kolar and Nick Boyle, and outside linebacker David Ojabo.

The Ravens will dress only three tight ends this week as both Boyle and Kolar will sit. That leaves them with Mark Andrews, rookie Isaiah Likely, and Josh Oliver as well as fullback Patrick Ricard.

Williams is a healthy scratch for the second week in a row as the Ravens once again elevated the versatile Ar’Darius Washington to help provide additional slot depth.

Bynes has been a regular healthy scratch since the arrival of Roquan Smith while Ojabo remains a likely healthy scratch. It remains to be seen if Ojabo, the Ravens’ second-round pick, will play this season.

By all accounts, the former Michigan standout is healthy after being activated well over a month ago now. It might take an injury to another outside linebacker for him to see the field.
