The Ravens heads into the third week without starting defensive tackle Brandon Williams in the lineup. He’s been ruled out with a foot injury. But two young Ravens defensive linemen Carl Davis and Willie Henry stepped up with Williams out to take charge of defense in the game against the Steelers last week and they did pretty well. Much will be expected of the two in the game the Raiders as well.
The Ravens will be sending Carl Davis and Willie Henry to bolster the defense further on Sunday and second-year starter Michael Pierce will also get more snap counts.
Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith who was dealing with an Achilles issue was a full participant in Friday’s practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday. However, head coach John Harbaugh has hinted that Smith will back in the lineup against the Oakland Raiders.
As starting quarterback Derek Carr sustaining a back injury last week against Denver, the Raiders will have their hopes on backup QB EJ Manuel when he hits the field against Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Although there was a big fuss after running back Marshawn Lynch joining the Raiders it seems the veteran stills needs some time to make big plays this season. Wide receiver Amari Cooper will have pressure heading into Sunday’s clash as the status of wide receiver Michael Crabtree remains uncertain as he is dealing with a chest injury
