The Baltimore Ravens announced a few roster changes ahead of their pivotal Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, right on the verge of Saturday's deadline for pulling off such transactions.

The franchise signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to their 53-man roster from the practice squad, somethig that needed to be done with Treadwell having already spent his maximum three elevations earlier this season.

This move followed the placement of cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis on injured reserve due to a concussion sustained in the game against Jacksonville and was also seemingly made because of Zay Flowers' questionable status for Sunday's matchup, limiting the Ravens' passing options.

Baltimore elevated two players without having to sign them to their 53-man roster for the remainder of the season: outside linebacker Jeremiah Moon and defensive back Andrew Adams, both coming from the practice squad.

The Ravens, mind you, listed four starters as "questionable" to play in the final injury report released on Friday. Among these, wide receiver Zay Flowers and safety Kyle Hamilton are of particular concern as they have been steady key members of the offense and defense of the Flock, respectively.

Flowers enters Week 17 with 752 yards and four touchdowns while Hamilton is the reigning AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Cornerback Brandon Stephens and linebacker Del'Shawn Phillips are also questionable for Sunday's game.

The Miami Dolphins won't have their top running back as Raheem Mostert is expected to remain inactive for the game against Baltimore, while they won't also be able to count on wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who was already ruled out for Sunday last Friday.

Miami will have, however, their top two playmakers available to face Baltimore as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and top-wideout Tyreek Hill experienced some issues earlier this week but were ultimately cleared to play at The Bank today.
