BALTIMORE (AP) — Safety Bernard Pollard and linebackers Jameel McClain and Dannell Ellerbe are inactive for the Ravens against the Broncos, but Baltimore’s depleted defense hopes to have Terrell Suggs back after a one-game absence with a torn right biceps.
Pollard has a chest injury, Ellerbe has been bothered by a sprained ankle and McClain is hindered by a neck injury. Josh Bynes is expected to start at middle linebacker. Ray Lewis (torn triceps) was ruled out Saturday.
James Ihedigbo is slated to start for Pollard, and Marshall Yanda (ankle) is being replaced by Bobbie Williams at right guard.
Ravens tight end Ed Dickson (knee) is also inactive.
Denver’s inactives include guard Chris Kuper (ankle), running back Lance Ball, receiver Andre Caldwell, tight end Julius Thomas, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga and cornerback Tracy Porter.
