Week 1 Injury Report: Browns vs Ravens

The final injury reports are out for the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens before the season opener this coming Sunday.

Baltimore has ruled out three players. Running back Justice Hill (thigh), defensive tackle Justin Madubuike (knee), and wide receiver Chris Moore (finger).

Hill was expected to play a role in the running game along with Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards, and J.K. Dobbins while Madubuike, Baltimore’s second-round pick was expected to back up Calais Campbell on the defensive line.

The Ravens also listed offensive lineman Tyre Phillips as questionable with an ankle injury.

Cleveland ruled out cornerbacks Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (liver) as they continue to recover from their lengthy injuries. They also ruled out linebacker Mack Wilson (knee) and Chris Hubbard (ankle). Cleveland listed center JC Tretter (knee) and cornerback MJ Stewart (hamstring) as questionable and the duo was limited in practice all week.

With Williams and Johnson out and Stewart’s status up in the air for Sunday, Cleveland may utilize the new ability to call up two players from the practice squad right out of the gate for the season opener. Currently, the only healthy corners on the roster are Denzel Ward, Terrence Mitchell, and Tavierre Thomas.

Teams can elevate two players from the practice squad by 4 pm on the day before a game and will go back to the practice squad following the game but no player can be elevated more than two games or they’ll be required to sign them to the active roster. AJ Green and Robert Jackson are the cornerbacks on the practice squad currently.
