CSNBaltimore.com reports that Ravens 2nd-year NT Terrence Cody has trimmed all the way down to 335 pounds and is motivated to deliver this year. Cody apparently found motivation in GM Ozzie Newsome's assessment that he could be on the verge of a breakout year. The NT dropped at least 40 pounds from his rookie playing weight, and DL Haloti Ngata expects "a lot of good things." Cody was a top talent at his position in college, leaving his weight issues as the only concern at draft time. With that in tow, he can be a force in the middle and help everyone else around him. Cody could pull blocking attention away from Ngata and help keep Ray Lewis clean.
Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are active for today's game against the Titans. CB Jimmy Smith is also active for the 1st time since Week 14. Smith hasn't played more than half the snaps in a game since Week 9. A healthier Baltimore defense is obviously bad news for Tennessee's offense, though this game still carries plenty of shootout potential. The 54-point over/under comes in 3.5 points higher than any other game on the slate.
Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Humphrey played through the issue last week and made it through a full practice Friday. So he should be good to go. Ngakoue also progressed from missing practice all last week and then sitting out the game to participating every day this week and finishing with a full Friday workout. So he appears on track to return. We'll check the status of both on Sunday.
Ravens EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) is inactive for today's regular-season finale against the Bengals. CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Marcus Peters and DE Calais Campbell, though, are all active after entering the day questionable.
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 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.
