The Baltimore Ravens made two roster moves ahead of their Week 9 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks in Baltimore, re-signing a recently released player and moving another from Injured Reserve to the active roster.
Defensive back Daryl Worley was removed from IR and elevated to the 53-man roster ahead of Week 9 while the Ravens also were able to re-sign cornerback Kevon Seymour, who cleared waivers, after releasing him last Thursday.
Worley initially suffered a shoulder injury in Week 4 against the Browns but he's returned in the shortest possible time following the mandatory four-week absence when a player is put on IR.
The 28-year-old veteran participated fully in practice throughout the week after returning to the training grounds on Wednesday to join the rest of his teammates.
Worley's availability will add even more depth to a secondary unit that has an embarrassment of riches when nobody expected that to be the case. Not only that, but Worley should provide some help on special-team plays on top of everything.
While no news about Kevon Seymour had been made public before Saturday and following his release earlier this week (Nov. 2), it seems like nobody claimed the veteran defensive back off waivers so he was able to return to Baltimore ahead of Week 9.
Once Baltimore re-signed their cut player, they decided to spend an elevation on him from the practice squad to the active roster so he could play against the Seahawks if the need emerges throughout the game.
Seymour has been a consistent performer on special teams throughout the season, same as teammate Daryl Worley, and he's appeared in such plays in seven games so far this year. Additionally, he has seen action in 13 defensive snaps.
The activation of Worley and the elevation of Seymour might also be backed by the return of starting safety Marcus Williams, although that's pretty much still up in the air as he's not been ruled out for Sunday, although he's not logged a full-participation practice all week long either.
