Ravens outside linebacker Odafe Oweh and running back Keaton Mitchell are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, who will likely be without top quarterback Kyler Murray.
Oweh was limited in practice Thursday and missed Friday’s session with an ankle injury, which sidelined him from Week 3 to Week 6. In his first game back, he had a team-high five quarterback pressures Sunday against the Detroit Lions, according to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats.
“We’ll be seeing how he does if he’s out there on Sunday,” coach John Harbaugh said after practice Friday. “He’s not going to be out for any period of time. We’ll see if he plays on Sunday.”
Mitchell, who hurt his hamstring against Detroit, was a full participant in practice Friday. Harbaugh said Monday that there was an “outside chance” the rookie could play against Arizona. If Mitchell is unavailable, the Ravens could sign practice squad member Melvin Gordon III to their active roster as a third running back.
Wide receiver Tylan Wallace, who returned to practice Wednesday after missing a month with a hamstring injury, is also questionable. He would have to be activated off injured reserve to play Sunday.
Safety Marcus Williams, meanwhile, was ruled out for the second straight week. He hasn’t practiced since suffering a hamstring injury in the Ravens’ Week 6 win over the Tennessee Titans. Harbaugh last week said Williams’ injury is not considered long term but acknowledged that “hamstrings are finicky. ... It’s going to be week to week, probably.”
Murray, the Cardinals’ No. 1 overall pick in 2019, is doubtful for Sunday’s game despite practicing fully this week. The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback hasn’t played since tearing his ACL in December. Backup Joshua Dobbs is expected to make his eighth straight start.
The Cardinals ruled out three players: starting left guard Elijah Wilkinson, starting defensive end Kevin Strong and reserve linebacker Krys Barnes. Three players are questionable: reserve wide receiver Greg Dortch, reserve cornerback Antonio Hamilton and starting safety Jalen Thompson.
