The Baltimore Ravens released their latest injury report on Thursday and it's not looking much better than it did on Wednesday.

There is just one more day of training for the Flock before the boys take on the Indianapolis Colts next Sunday for Week 3, and as things stand as many as 10 starters might be ruled out for the game in the next few hours.

For the good news, both ER Jadeveon Clowney (illness) and WR Devin Duvernay (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday.

For the bad news, all of the rest.

Odell Beckham suffered an ankle injury last Sunday and was ruled out of the Week 2 game against the Bengals after halftime. Coach John Harbaugh announced on Monday that it wasn't a "long-term" injury, but Beckham has now missed back-to-back practices and is in danger of missing Week 3 entirely.

Odafe Oweh is in a similar situation, as he also missed ample time on Sunday appearing in just 14 defensive plays against Cincy. He was later confirmed to have suffered an ankle sprain which is probably going to keep him on the sidelines for this week at the very least.

Justice Hill finished Sunday's game with just 41 yards on 11 carries and no scores after rushing for nine yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 in a rather fluky, unsustainable performance.

Hill popped up in the injury report on Wednesday and has yet to practice this week. That might be why the Ravens decided to bring Kenyan Drake back to the team by signing the free agent and former 2022 Raven to their practice squad ahead of Week 3.

The trio of Tyler Linderbaum, Ronnie Stanley, and Marcus Williams got banged-up in Week 1, missed Week 2 entirely, and are still recovering from their injuries.

Williams is nothing but ruled out already after he decided to forgo surgery to avoid being placed on IR, though he's operating under a "vague timeline" and not expected back for a few weeks at the very least.

Marcus Humphrey underwent surgery in mid-August and started the season off IR, brining hopes of a potential debut before Week 4. That's now very improbable considering Humphrey hasn't practiced at all for more than a month, though he's stayed active and trolling folks across the internet.

Ar'Darius Washington isn't even listed in the latest report released by Baltimore because the franchise placed him on IR earlier this week. The same happened to J.K. Dobbins after his season-ending Achilles injury in Week 1, making it three starters currently on IR if we also count OLB Tyus Bowser.

Arthur Maulet should start at the nickel corner in replacement for Washington. Geno Stone is the main replacement for Williams. Rock Ya-Sin, Brandon Stephens, and Ronald Darby shape the cornerback rotation.

David Ojabo and Clowney would start on the outside in the linebacker line. Sam Mustipher and Patrick Mekari are the center and offensive tackle replacements. Drake or Melvin Gordon should take RB2 reps. Nelson Agholor should be the WR3 with Beckham out.
