Ravens Insider: Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey inactive vs. Texans; WR/KR Devin Duvernay returns


Recommended Posts

The Ravens are without two of their most prominent players for Saturday’s AFC divisional round showdown against the Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium.

Cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who has been out since suffering a calf injury in Baltimore’s blowout of the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 31, was ruled out Thursday and thus declared inactive. Meanwhile, tight end Mark Andrews, who continues to work his way back from ankle surgery he underwent in November, was not activated from injured reserve.

Brandon Stephens, who was hospitalized with an acute illness during last year’s wild-card loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and Ronald Darby are expected to start at cornerback against the Texans, who enter having won eight of their past 11 games thanks in large part to the play of rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Also inactive for Baltimore are wide receiver Tylan Wallace (knee), who had been returning kicks in place of injured receiver Devin Duvernay (back). But Duvernay, a two-time Pro Bowl selection on special teams, was activated from injured reserve this week and will resume his role as the primary kick returner.

The remainder of Ravens who are inactive are linebacker Del’Shawn Phillips (shoulder), center Sam Mustipher, guard Sala Aumavae-Laulu and quarterbacks Josh Johnson and Malik Cunningham, with Johnson designated as the team’s emergency quarterback.

Running back Dalvin Cook, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who signed with the Ravens earlier this month after being released by the New York Jets, and wide receiver-special teams contributor Dan Chisena are active and will make their team debuts.

For the Texans, guard Nick Broeker, defensive end Jerry Hughes, tight end Eric Saubert, defensive tackle Teair Tart and quarterback Case Keenum are inactive. Right tackle George Fant, who missed Thursday’s practice with an illness, and fullback Andrew Beck, who missed two practices with a back injury, are both active after being listed as questionable.
