The Baltimore Ravens announced on Saturday's deadline for Week 15 roster moves that the Flock has elevated outside linebacker Jeremiah Moon for Sunday’s game at the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Moon is expected to have a special teams role this weekend as the linebackers line is already solid with those playing weekly, so there is no real room for Moon to take defensive snaps on a per-play basis.

Moon went undrafted in 2022 but the Ravens scooped him up instantly, making him a steady member of their practice squad since he landed in Baltimore as a UDFA rookie. He has been active in four games this season, recording six total tackles and forcing a fumble.

While he's appeared in games here and there, Moon's role as an important player for the Ravens has not materialized yet, and against the Jaguars he's expected to simply help on special-team plays rather than taking actual snaps on defense.

The decision to elevate Moon means that outside linebacker Malik Hamm remains inactive and off the 53-man roster for another week. Hamm, another UDFA success story, was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury before the regular season started.

The Ravens have one more week to activate him from the Injured Reserve list by placing him on their 53-man roster for the remainder of the season and the playoffs. If they do not activate Hamm by next Tuesday, before their game against the San Francisco 49ers on Christmas Eve, then Hamm will be ineligible to return this season.

Following Saturday's results with three NFL games played ahead of Sunday, the Ravens can clinch a postseason berth as early as this week with a victory over the Jaguars. The Steelers lost to the Colts and the Bengals defeated the Vikings, meaning Baltimore needs just one more win in four games to make it there.
