Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That makes QB Lamar Jackson a safer fantasy play.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday — his 1st since suffering that hip injury. If Flacco is active on Sunday, he’s expected to back up QB Lamar Jackson. But it’d add some risk to Jackson’s fantasy outlook because Baltimore could bench him if he struggles.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson headed back to the locker room to get checked for a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Atlanta. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB Robert Griffin is in for Baltimore.

Update: Jackson has been cleared to return.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the ankle shouldn’t be a concern. With 40 carries over the past 2 weeks, Edwards is a rock-solid RB2.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. We’ll see if he’s ready to play next week. Lamar Jackson gets another start today and is a borderline QB1.

The Ravens expect RB Gus Edwards to play through his ankle injury today against the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Edwards began the week sidelined but finished with a full Friday practice and should be good to go.

The Ravens have placed RB Alex Collins on IR with the foot injury that cost him last week's game. He reportedly won't need surgery. The team is also activating RB Kenneth Dixon from IR. He's been out since suffering a knee injury back in Week 1 but could see time Sunday against the Falcons, especially with RB Gus Edwards entering the game questionable. We expect Edwards to play, especially after he finished the week with a full practice. Dixon is a pickup option for many leagues, though, as an Edwards handcuff or Collins replacement. Buck Allen remains in the mix as well.

The Ravens have ruled S Tony Jefferson out for Sunday's game against the Falcons with an ankle injury.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game in Atlanta. QB Lamar Jackson will start that one. We’ll see if Flacco is ready to return — and if Baltimore goes back to him — for Week 14.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday and a full-go on Friday. So he should be fine for Sunday's game. We'll get his official status by noon ET. RB Alex Collins (foot) is also listed as questionable after going through the same practice routine as Edwards. We'll see if he's active on Sunday, but Collins isn't a fantasy option if Edwards plays.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) put in a limited practice on Friday -- his 1st since suffering that hip injury in Week 9. QB Lamar Jackson is still fully expected to start this weekend's game against the Falcons, but Flacco might be ready for Week 14. How Jackson plays on Sunday might determine who's under center against the Chiefs in 10 days.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. Ditto for RB Alex Collins (foot). Edwards is on track to again serve as Baltimore's lead ball-carrier in Atlanta this weekend.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We didn't see him get nicked up last week, so this might just be a rest day for a guy who's carried 40 times over the past 2 games. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. So it looks like it was the foot that kept him out of last weekend's game against the Raiders -- rather than being a healthy scratch. We'll see if Collins is ready for Sunday's game in Atlanta, but he's lost the lead job to Gus Edwards.

The Ravens plan to start QB Lamar Jackson for Sunday’s game at Atlanta, per Mike Garafolo of NFL.com. The news isn’t surprising, as Joe Flacco hasn’t gained medical clearance from his hip injury. Jackson’s run hot and cold as a passer but owns a whopping 190 rushing yards through 2 starts. He’ll carry top-15 potential into the road matchup.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a thigh injury. After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Jefferson returned for a limited Thursday workout and then returned to full participation Friday. We'd bet on him playing but will confirm his status Sunday morning.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. That leaves Baltimore with QBs Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley believes the “most likely scenario” is Jackson getting the start and Robert Griffin “mixing in for some series and special packages.” Jackson has some QB2 appeal thanks to his rushing ability and this plus matchup. But he can’t be trusted as a QB1 when he won’t play 100% of the snaps.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been designated as 1 of the team's return-from-IR players and has been cleared to practice. He's been sidelined since hurting his knee in the season opener. It's unclear how close Dixon is to being game ready. But when he gets back out there, he'll be returning to a backfield with Alex Collins, Buck Allen and Ty Montgomery. Dixon isn't worth a fantasy roster spot right now.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) missed practice again on Thursday. QB Lamar Jackson was also sidelined with an illness. That shouldn't keep him out of this weekend's game against the Bengals, but the missed practice could hurt his chances of getting the start if Flacco can't go. QB Robert Griffin took all the reps in Thursday's workout.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. It's obviously not an ideal start to his week, but HC John Harbaugh has already said that Flacco could play against the Bengals this weekend without practicing. Harbaugh also hasn't said whether Lamar Jackson or Robert Griffin will start if Flacco can't. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.
