As expected, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson will be active for the season opener against the Broncos.

Dickson had been optimistic that he would recover quickly enough to play in Week 1. However, the Ravens will hope that Dickson doesn’t re-aggravate his hamstring injury. It remained to be seen how much Dickson would play, and if Dallas Clark would receive more snaps at tight end.

Listed as inactive by the Ravens were wide receivers Aaron Mellette and Deonte Thompson, center Ryan Jensen, guard Jah Reid, linebacker John Simon, defensive end Arthur Jones, and defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Rookie wide receiver Marlon Brown was active, getting the nod over Mellette.

Inactive for the Broncos were quarterback Zac Dysert, running back C. J, Anderson, cornerbacks Quentin Hammer and Champ Bailey, guards John Moffitt and Chris Kuper, and tight end Joel Dreessen.
