WR Laquon Treadwell, RB Melvin Gordon elevated from practice squad

Along with Van Noy's signing to the 53-man roster following Ojabo's IR placement, the Ravens are elevating two skill-position players to fill the open holes in their gameday squad to face the Browns on Sunday.

Former first-round picks Laquon Treadwell and Melvin Gordon will be on the sidelines come kick-off time after getting promoted to Baltimore's active roster.

The Ravens left Kenyon Drake inactive for Week 4 after getting the positive news of Gus Edwards and Justice Hill being back available to play, thus needing only one more warm body (MG3) to fill the three-man backfield rotation.

Gordon will need to clear waivers if he's not signed to the 53-man roster after Week 4 as he's run out of elevations with the Ravens. If he clears waivers, he would be allowed to rejoin the practice squad of Baltimore ahead of Week 5.

As for Treadwell, he joins the only three active wideouts currently healthy and ready to play: Zay Flowers, Nelson Agholor, and Devin Duvernay. Treadwell has yet to play a regular-season snap with the Ravens.
