Ravens S Marcus Williams will not have surgery for his pectoral injury, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. Williams is rehabbing and not even planning to go on IR. That indicates the team hopes to get him back inside the next four games. Williams already missed the Week 2 win over the Bengals. We'll watch for updates on his expected return. In the meantime, Geno Stone is starting in Williams' place.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that S Marcus Williams will "be out for a while" with the pectoral injury he suffered Sunday, according to multiple reports. Harbaugh said Williams is considering surgery and that the injury doesn't necessarily end his season. That it even could, though, makes Williams droppable in nearly all IDP leagues. We've already removed him from our rest-of-season rankings. Geno Stone filled in for Williams against the Texans and figures to start next to Kyle Hamilton going forward. Stone has spent most of his time at deep safety -- likely Williams -- which limits his fantasy upside. Hamilton remains the more intriguing IDP because of his higher snap count "in the box." A trailing Houston offense went pass-heavy in the opener, sending tackle opportunities further downfield. Brandon Stephens, who you might see listed as a safety, started at CB for Baltimore in the opener. He can also be an IDP option if you lost Williams.

Ravens S Marcus Williams injured his left shoulder in Sunday's game against the Texans and was ruled out shortly thereafter. We'll see about the severity. Williams lost seven games to a dislocated wrist last year, his first with Baltimore.

The Ravens are signing Edge Jadeveon Clowney to a one-year deal. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says he'll "complement" Odafe Oweh and David Ojabo, so expect a rotation here. Clowney has yet to reach 10 sacks in a season since arriving as the No. 1 overall pick back in 2014. Expect him to help the Baltimore defense more than your IDP lineup. But it's a good landing spot for Clowney to turn more hidden pressures into sacks. Justin Houston enjoyed a rebound in his age-33 campaign last year in the spot that now goes to Clowney. We have Baltimore high in our 2023 DST rankings, especially because of some friendly early matchups.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey had surgery Wednesday for a nagging issue. "It's been a lingering thing and they took a look at it and said ... 'That's something we want to take care of now instead of waiting,'" HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday, according to the team website. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team hopes Humphrey will return "in a little over a month." He adds that Humphrey will likely miss the "first couple games." We'll watch for more on Humphrey's expected return as it draws closer. But one of our highest-projected CBs is falling down the IDP rankings. Baltimore is signing CB Ronald Darby to a one-year deal to help a banged-up secondary. Starting CB Rock Ya-Sin is dealing with a knee issue but expected back soon. A couple of reserve corners are also expected back soon from minor issues.

Ravens DL Calais Campbell (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Steelers. The knee was deemed unready after he tested it in pregame warmups.

The Ravens have ruled DL Calais Campbell (knee) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) out for Saturday's game against the Falcons.

Ravens LB Patrick Queen (thigh) is active for today's game against the Steelers. Play him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Ravens LB Patrick Queen (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He closed the week with a full Friday practice, which would seem to put him on track to play. We'll confirm Queen's status Sunday morning.

Ravens LB Patrick Queen said Wednesday that he's "pretty sure" he'll play Sunday against the Steelers, according to Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun. Queen left last Sunday's win over the Broncos with a thigh injury. He put in a limited practice Wednesday. We'll see about his status the rest of the week.

Ravens LB Patrick Queen left Sunday's win over the Broncos early with a thigh injury. We'll see about his status for Week 14 and beyond.

Update: HC John Harbaugh said Monday that it's merely a bruise, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. We'll watch his status this week.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (ankle) and S Kyle Hamilton (knee) are active for today's game against the Broncos. Humphrey is the only 1 that has earned serious lineup consideration for IDP leagues. Hamilton has just 1 game all season with more than 54% playing time.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Friday that S Marcus Williams (wrist) won't return for this Sunday's game against the Broncos. Williams has been on IR since injuring the wrist in Week 4. We'd bet on him playing in Week 14 after practicing the past 2 weeks, but we'll see how the safety progresses. In the meantime, S Geno Stone gets another start. CB Marlon Humphrey (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game.

Ravens DB Kyle Hamilton (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars.

The Ravens are acquiring LB Roquan Smith from the Bears for 2nd- and 5th-round NFL Draft picks. Smith is in the final year of his rookie contract, so we'd bet on an extension with Baltimore following. His arrival likely means the end of full playing time for Ravens LB Patrick Queen. They'll likely start together, but the move for Smith signals dissatisfaction with the middle of the defense. Queen has become a full-timer this season after seeing 80% and then 76% the previous 2 seasons. Smith's departure from Chicago leaves tackle upside for LB Nicholas Morrow, who was already playing full-time snaps. Joe Thomas stands 3rd among Bears LBs in playing time currently and might be the top candidate to absorb vacated snaps.

Update: The Ravens are also sending LB A.J. Klein to the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll likely get at least a shot at stepping into Smith's vacated role.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (hamstring) and CB Marcus Peters (quad) are active for tonight's game against the Buccaneers.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (quad) is active for today's game against the Browns.

Ravens S Marcus Williams suffered a dislocated wrist in the 1st half of Sunday night's win over the Bengals. HC John Harbaugh told reporters after the game that Williams will miss a "significant" amount of time. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Williams is "likely" headed for IR. We'll see about the official return timeline following more testing, but Williams will likely be droppable in redraft IDP leagues. Geno Stone stepped into the lineup after Williams left. Rookie DB Kyle Hamilton, meanwhile, saw no increase in playing time. The 1st-rounder has played fewer than 20 snaps in each of the past 3 games.

The Ravens have signed EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul to a 1-year deal worth up to $5 million, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Baltimore has just 7 sacks through 3 games, despite facing a league-high 141 pass attempts. The only Raven with 2+ sacks so far is EDGE Justin Houston, who left Sunday's win over the Patriots with a groin injury. We'd bet on JPP quickly working into the rotation, though we'll need to see his playing time before considering him for IDP lineups.

Ravens CBs Marlon Humphrey (groin) and Marcus Peters (knee) are active for today's game against the Patriots. Each played through his issue last week, but for less than his usual playing time.
