Four Ravens defensive players who did not practice Friday will dress Sunday against the Bengals – cornerbacks Corey Graham (calf) and Jimmy Smith (groin), linebacker Daryl Smith (thigh), and safety James Ihedigbo (toe). All were listed as active Sunday when the injury report was released.
Wide receiver Brandon Stokley (groin) was on the inactive list, joined by defensive tackle Brandon Williams, cornerback Asa Jackson, running back Bernard Scott, center Ryan Jensen, linebacker John Simon, and safety Omar Brown.
Jackson has returned from his eight-game suspension for violating the NFL performance enhancement policy. However, with Graham and Smith both able to play, the coaching staff must have felt there was adequate depth at cornerback without Jackson.
Williams being on the inactive list was somewhat of a surprise, because he was not on Friday’s injury report.
Players on the inactive list for the Bengals included tight end Jermaine Gresham and linebacker Rey Maualuga. As expected, running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) was active for the Bengals.
