Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. After sitting out on Thursday, he put in a full practice on Friday. So Collins should play on Sunday. But the foot injury adds risk to what was already a tough matchup.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. He went through this routine back in Week 5 before playing on Sunday, so it's possible this was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow. Baltimore would be left with Buck Allen, Gus Edwards and the newly acquired Ty Montgomery if Collins can't go.

The Packers have traded RB Ty Montgomery to the Ravens for a 2020 7th-round pick -- or, basically, a bag of balls. Montgomery, of course, just cost Green Bay a chance to come back and beat the Rams by fumbling on a kickoff return. He hasn't been a big part of the offense this year, averaging just 3.7 carries and 3.3 targets per game. His departure certainly doesn't hurt RB Aaron Jones' rest-of-season outlook, though. In Baltimore, Montgomery figures to step into a similar change-of-pace, pass-catching role. He'll steal a handful of looks from Alex Collins and Buck Allen but is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset.

The Ravens will be without their top cover man when they face the Saints today. CB Marlon Humphrey (quad) is inactive. That can only be good news for New Orleans WRs Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith, though the matchup remains tough.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He left Thursday's practice early with a quad injury that then kept him out Friday. HC John Harbaugh told The Baltimore Sun on Friday, "We'll just see how it goes at this point." Humphrey is Baltimore's best cover man and would hurt the coverage with his absence. We'll check on his status Sunday afternoon, ahead of the 4:05 ET kickoff.

Ravens CB Brandon Carr (knee) and OLB Za'Darius Smith (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Browns. Each entered the day questionable. Baltimore also gets top CB Jimmy Smith back after a season-opening 4-game suspension. This remains an upside team D even on the road today.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is active for today’s game against the Browns. It’s unclear how big a role the rookie will play in his debut. Hurst would be a flier in fantasy lineups today.

The Ravens expect rookie TE Hayden Hurst (foot) to play Sunday against the Browns "and even start," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll watch to see the 1st-round pick's role in his return, but there are TE targets available. Maxx Williams, Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle have combined for 41 targets -- a 23.4% share -- all falling between 12 and 16 looks so far.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Browns. We're expecting him to make his debut in this one but will find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Hurst would be a flier in Week 5 fantasy lineups, but he could quickly become a viable spot-start option.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (knee) will play against the Browns this weekend, HC John Harbaugh said Friday. Collins sat out Thursday’s practice as a precaution but was a full-go Friday. He’s a low-end RB2 vs. a solid Cleveland defense.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hears that Ravens RB Alex Collins' absence on Thursday was "precautionary." The team wants Collins "ready to rip" vs. the Browns this weekend. It sounds like Collins will be safe to get into fantasy lineups as long as he returns to practice Friday.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (knee) missed Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. We don't have any other details, but it looks like Collins might have been injured in Wednesday's workout. We'll look for updates and see if Collins is able to get back on the field tomorrow. His absence would leave Buck Allen as Baltimore's lead back.

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (knee) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Steelers. They're good to go if you were waiting for either as an IDP starter.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Steelers. He returned to practice this week and might be eyeing a Week 5 debut.

Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs is questionable for Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh with a knee injury. Suggs missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited workout Friday. We'll check on his status Sunday evening.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers after a limited week of practice. It’s unclear if he’s ready to make his NFL debut. Hurst shouldn’t be in your Week 4 fantasy plans but could quickly emerge as a spot-start option.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh expects ILB C.J. Mosley to play Sunday night against the Steelers, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Mosley missed Week 3 with a bone bruise in his left knee but should be back in IDP lineups as long as he’s active. If you want insurance because of the late kickoff, grab Baltimore rookie LB Kenny Young, who started in Mosley’s place last week

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst practiced on Wednesday for the 1st time since undergoing surgery in late August to repair a stress fracture in his foot. It's unclear if the rookie will play against the Steelers on Sunday night, but he's clearly making progress. Hurst seemed set to play a significant role in Baltimore's passing game before that injury. And Ravens TEs have accounted for 22.7% of the team's targets so far. Hurst could become a spot-start option later this season.

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley is out for today's game against the Broncos because of a bone bruise in his left knee. Kenny Young figures to start in his place and likely see full-time duty after filling in for 76% of the snaps in Week 2 against the Bengals, after Mosley left. Patrick Onwuasor is the best bet for full playing time among Ravens ILBs, but Young looks like the higher-upside option. He has delivered a tackle for loss in each outing to open the season after an nice preseason.

Ravens LB C.J. Mosley will be a game-time decision for today's matchup with the Broncos because of the right knee bone bruise he suffered against the Bengals in Week 2. "It may be a long shot, but he's giving himself a chance to go out there," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. IDP owners should try to go in a different direction for Week 3.
