Ravens Could Be Down 2 Tackles, 3 OLBs vs. Steelers

The Baltimore Ravens have ruled two players out, one is doubtful and five are questionable for their Week 5 visit to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle) and safety Daryl Worley (shoulder) have both been ruled out by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. 

Tavius Robinson will likely start in place of Oweh at outside linebacker, with Kyle Van Noy serving as depth. Oweh makes three regulars at that position unavailable, joining Tyus Boswer and David Ojabo.

Tackle Morgan Moses (shoulder) is doubtful and fellow tackle Ronnie Stanley (knee) is questionable. That means that Patrick Mekari and Daniel Faalele could be in line to start at tackle. Mekari is a veteran, but Faalele, a 6-foot-9, 380-pound Minnesota alum, will be making his second start in his second pro season.

The battle between tackles and edge rushers will be one to watch on both sides of the ball. The Steelers will be starting rookie Broderick Jones at left tackle for the first time, while Alex Highsmith is questionable with a groin injury.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) was limited in practice all week, but said he will play. Running back Justice Hill (foot/hamstring) was a full participant on Friday, as was cornerback Marlon Humphrey (foot). All three are questionable.

Beckham could join Rashon Bateman and Zay Flowers to give the Ravens their expected wide receiver trio on the field for the first time this season. If not, Nelson Agholor and Devin Duvernay will continue to fill in.

Humphrey has not played all season. Brandon Stephens has replaced him at cornerback, with Ronald Darby manning the other side.

Fellow Running back Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) is also questionable. He remains on the injured reserve list but has been designated to return.

Gus Edwards will likely share carries with Hill once again. Edwards had 15 carries for 48 yards last week against the Cleveland Browns. Hill had three for 33 yards.
