Ravens RB Gus Edwards (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals. He was added to the injury report and limited on Friday. Edwards’ absence would likely put RB Mark Ingram back in the fold — but also mean a boost in touches for RB J.K. Dobbins.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (knee, shoulder), DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh), CB Marcus Peters (calf) and DE Calais Campbell (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Humphrey, Peters and Campbell all finished the week with full practices, so we'd guess they'll be ready to play. Ngakoue, on the other hand, missed practice all week. There may be coaching decisions involved with playoffs starting next week, but Baltimore has not yet clinched their spot. We'll check on all statuses before the game Sunday.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins isn't listed on the Week 17 injury report. He left last week's game with a rib injury but is evidently good to go for Sunday's finale vs. the Bengals. The rookie has been Baltimore's lead back over his last 5 games, averaging 12.8 carries -- but just .8 targets.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins suffered a calf injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but Watkins is unlikely to play in this weekend's meaningless regular-season finale. He'll then get a bye week before the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle will be Kansas City's top 3 WRs this weekend.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins suffered a rib injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Giants. We'll look for an update on the severity. The rookie's absence left Gus Edwards as Baltimore's top back.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. With CB Jimmy Smith also out, it looks like Anthony Averett and Tramon Williams joining Marlon Humphrey as Baltimore's top 3 corners. The situation adds upside to Giants WR Darius Slayton, who has seen 17 targets over the past 2 weeks and sits at his cheapest DraftKings price of the season. Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is active. He finished the week with his 1st full practice since suffering his calf injury way back in Week 9. So Campbell should be in for more playing time than he has seen the past 2 games following his return. That makes him an IDP lineup candidate for the 1st time in a while and stands as bad news for the Giants' run game.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be ready for his regular role today.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown should be good to go for this one, but check back Sunday to make sure he's active.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Campbell's absence enhances the rushing matchup for Jacksonville RB James Robinson. A secondary missing Peters and CB Jimmy Smith helps the matchup for Jaguars WRs as well.

11:12am EST 12/20/20

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He missed practice all week as a close contact on the COVID list. We don’t expect him to be limited today, though, and the matchup makes him an upside WR3.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche have been activated from the COVID list and are eligible to play vs. the Jaguars tomorrow. Brown has scored in 3 straight while totaling 22 targets. He has plenty of upside in a pristine matchup against a beat-up Jacksonville secondary.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He has seen his snaps limited each of the past 2 weeks since returning from the injury, though the share did increase last week. Campbell played just 40% of the snaps against the Browns, though, and tallied only an assist. He then missed 2 days of practice and put in just a limited Friday. Campbell is likely to play, but he's not a safe bet for IDP production. Ravens CB Marcus Peters (calf) is also questionable. He missed practice all week and looks risky.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche were deemed close contacts and have not tested positive for COVID, HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday. The WRs won't be able to practice this week but will be eligible to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday if they continue to test negative. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Ravens WRs Marquise Brown, James Proche and Miles Boykin have been placed on the COVID list. We'll see if they tested positive for the virus or were just close contacts. If all 3 are out vs. Jacksonville this weekend, Willie Snead, Dez Bryant and Devin Duvernay would be left as Baltimore's top 2 WRs. TE Mark Andrews, of course, would be the heavy favorite to lead in targets.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson left in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game against the Browns to be treated for cramps. We'll see if he can make it back onto the field before it's over.

Update: Jackson returned for a 4th-down play and threw a go-ahead TD pass to WR Marquise Brown with less than 2 minutes left.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Browns. He didn't participate in practice this week, though, and looks like a risk to play near his normal snap share.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Browns. Campbell returned to action in Week 13 after 3 games down between the calf injury and a stint on the COVID list, but he played just 29% of the snaps and then missed practice all week. Avoid Campbell for IDP lineups this week.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews has been activated from the COVID list. That puts him on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Browns. Andrews posted 7-61 and 5-96-1 lines on 16 total targets in his last 2 games and now gets Cleveland's 30th-ranked TE defense. He scored twice in the 1st meeting against the Browns back in Week 1.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell, S Chuck Clark, S DeShon Elliott and OLB Jaylon Ferguson are all active for tonight's game against the Cowboys. All 4 entered the day questionable but are available for IDP use.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been activated from the COVID list. He's fully expected to start against the Cowboys on Tuesday night. That's a plus matchup. But the expected absences of TE Mark Andrews and WR Willie Snead leave Jackson as just a mid-range QB1.
