With the deadline for roster moves approaching on Saturday and the Ravens running out of time to complete their final transactions ahead of Week 8's game against the Cardinals, Baltimore announced three moves ahead of their clash at Arizona a few hours ago.

The Baltimore Ravens orchestrated a triple-play before the roster deadline by calling up wide receiver Tylan Wallace (playable both on offense and special teams), running back Owen Wright, and defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson.

Wallace is making a comeback from the injured reserve list. He was sidelined for the last four weeks due to a hamstring injury but returned to full practice participation this week and he will be on the field come Sunday, although it's unclear how much will he factor on offense and outside of special-team plays.

The Ravens also elevated homegrown and Maryland native running back Owen Wright, as well as recent-free-agent-signee and defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson.

Most probably, those moves came down to pressing needs as the Ravens third-string running back Keaton Mitchell was listed as "questionable" to play in Week 8 while nursing a hamstring injury.

If he takes any snaps, Owen Wright will make his NFL debut, having honed his skills at Georgetown Prep in Bethesda, MD., before getting signed by the Ravens earlier this year after going undrafted coming out of Monmouth.

Starting safety Marcus Williams' hamstring issue ruled him out for Sunday's game, thus forcing Baltimore into bringing a reinforcement to the depleted secondary by promoting Houston-Carson for additional depth.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals ultimately left starting quarterback Kyler Murray inactive for Week 8, trusting backup quarterback Joshua Dobbs to start his eighth consecutive game this season.
