Wide receivers Jacoby Jones (knee) and Marlon Brown (hamstring) were both declared inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, as was new left tackle Eugene Monroe. 

Bryant McKinnie will start at left tackle, and the Ravens will dress just three healthy wide receivers – Torrey Smith, Deonte Thompson, and Tandon Doss. Veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley was cut on Saturday. 

It was thought that Monroe might play sparingly, after the Ravens acquired him in a trade with the Jaguars on Tuesday. Monroe made the trip to South Florida, but apparently did not feel comfortable enough with the offense to dress after just two practices. 

Meanwhile, the Ravens look thin at the wide receiver spot, with Jones and Brown unable to go. The Ravens added tight end Billy Bajema to the roster Saturday after Stokley was cut. Stokley may be re-signed this week, but he will not be able to help the Ravens today.

Other Ravens inactive players for Sunday included defensive lineman Marcus Spears, defensive lineman Terrence Cody, and offensive linemen Jah Reid and Ryan Jensen.
