The Baltimore Ravens are, indeed, entering Week 7 with one of the cleanest injury reports they have released through the first six weeks of the early 2023 season.

Following Friday's "mental practice," which didn't entail any physicality but rather reviewing some concepts and schemes expected to be deployed by the Detroit Lions, the Ravens announced that only two players on the active roster will miss Week 7.

The Ravens confirmed two absentees due to injury: safety Marcus Williams (hamstring) and cornerback Kevon Seymour (ankle).

The rest of the team, aside from the aforementioned duo, participated fully in Friday's session, marking a season-high in terms of player availability.

Stepping in for the sidelined Williams will be Geno Stone, who will most probably hand the opposite side to Kyle Hamilton in the deepest level of the Ravens' secondary.

Stone, currently tied for the league lead with three interceptions, has proven his capabilities in this position even though he wasn't even close to taking as many reps as he's gotten this season just a few weeks ago.

In another superb good news for the Ravens, Odafe Oweh will finally make his return from a four-game absence due to an ankle injury. Oweh practiced fully on both Thursday and Friday and he should be available at 100% fitness on Sunday.

Oweh will join the pass-rushing rotation along with veterans Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy as the Ravens' top outside linebackers.

Additionally, three more defensive rotational players—Brent Urban (neck stinger), Ronald Darby (illness), and Malik Harrison (concussion)—all returned and should be in good shape and ready to contribute against the Lions.

Turning attention to the Lions, Detroit confirmed that running back David Montgomery (ribs) won't play at Baltimore on Sunday.

Rookie Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is set to assume the primary running back role for the Lions in Week 7, with Craig Reynolds (hamstring/toe) listed as questionable.
