2. Marcus Williams is set to return this week for the Baltimore Ravens

When Marcus Williams had a reported pec injury, it sounded like he may have been done for the season. He suffered a serious injury early into his tenure with Baltimore last year, and the signs were starting to point to him having awful luck with this franchise.

However, in a good bit of news, Williams did not get placed on the IR and elected not to have surgery. He got some work in last week, and this week, the practice report says that he is going to be able to play.

With two full particpations, it would take a setback for him to miss this game. This will tell us a lot about the defense moving forward as well. The Ravens can either start Geno Stone at safety next to Williams and keep Kyle Hamilton in the slot, or they can roll with Hamilton next to Williams like they always intended and then have Arthur Maulet in the slot.

Considering how good Hamilton is in the slot, and considering Stone may be more trusted by the coaches compared to Maulet, you would think that Hamilton will stay in the slot, but Sunday will give us a much clearer picture.
