Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey, S Marcus Williams, LT Ronnie Stanley active vs. Steelers; RT Morgan Moses out – Boston Herald



The Ravens will try to complete an AFC North road sweep Sunday in Pittsburgh, and they’ll do as healthy as they have been since the start of the season.

Five players are back this week, including left tackle Ronnie Stanley and safety Marcus Williams, neither of whom has played since Week 1 with knee and pectoral injuries, respectively. Cornerback Marlon Humprhey is also back after being out since undergoing foot surgery in mid-August.

Others returning are wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., who had been out since suffering an ankle injury in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and Rashod Bateman, who missed last week’s game against the Cleveland Browns with a hamstring injury.

But Baltimore (3-1) will be without right tackle Morgan Moses (shoulder), who had played in 134 straight games, the third-longest active streak in the NFL. Being without Moses could be problematic, with the Steelers’ T.J. Watt one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. Patrick Mekari, who started in place of Stanley during his absence, replaced Moses.

Moses is one of six players inactive for the Ravens. The others are: outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle), cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis (hamstring), guard Sala Aumavae-Laulu, tight end Charlie Kolar and No. 3/emergency quarterback Josh Johnson.

The Steelers (2-2), meanwhile, have seven inactive players.

On offense, they’ll be without tight end Pat Freirermuth (hamstring), who has eight catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns, as well as offensive linemen Dan Moore Jr. (knee) and James Daniels (groin). Defensive end DeMarvin Leal (concussion) and punter Pressley Harvin (right hamstring) are also out.

With Moore not playing, rookie Broderick Jones will make his first NFL start, while 6-foot-7, 270-pound rookie tight end Darnell Washington will likely get more snaps in place of Freirermuth. Punter Brad Wing was elevated from the practice squad, as was offensive lineman Ryan McCollum.

Outside linebacker Alex Highsmith (groin), who was limited in practice Friday and listed as questionable, will play.

Quarterback Mason Rudolph, who is the third quarterback, is also inactive along with running back Godwin Igwebuike.
