Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens Injury Report


The Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens are set to square off this afternoon at 4:25 p.m. ET, and both sides are looking to pick up their fourth win against a rival. The Ravens would hit .500 with a victory today, and  we’ll see if they can replicate their Week 2 victory over the Browns. Below are the injury reports for both teams, as well as some notes on the injuries.

Cleveland Browns

Questionable

LB Quentin Groves (ankle)

DE Billy Winn (quadriceps)

Probable

RB Willis McGahee (knee)

RB Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs)

DE Desmond Bryant (thumb)

LB Jabaal Sheard (wrist)

CB Christopher Owens (finger)

Baltimore Ravens

Out

LG Kelechi Osemele (back, knee)- Osemele did not practice on Friday, so it is no surprise to hear that he has been ruled out. He’s been dealing with a chronic back injury this season that is clearly affecting his play, and Osemele will need to have surgery on it this offseason. He’s in too much pain to consistently perform, so the Ravens will once again have to turn to A.Q. Shipley. I love Shipley’s determination and football IQ, but he just hasn’t performed well this season. The Ravens line has been awful and a huge disappointment this season, but there’s still hope that they can turn it around and help offensive weapons like Joe Flacco and Ray Rice produce higher numbers. Osemele likely suffered a knee injury this week as well, thus sealing his fate on the inactive list.

Questionable

WR Brandon Stokely (thigh)

Probable

RT Michael Oher (ankle)

RB Bernard Pierce (thigh)- Pierce and Rice have been disappointments this season thanks to awful blocking and nagging injuries, but the bye week has done both players a whole lot of good. The Ravens talented RB duo should be in top gear soon, as both players have declared themselves 100%. Pierce practiced fully this week.

DT Terrence Cody (knee)

LB Josh Bynes (finger)- Now that Jameel McClain is fully health, Bynes will be his backup after doing a great job in McClain’s stead when McClain was on the short-term I.R.
