Jimmy Smith Is Doubtful, Two Other Defensive Backs Questionable
Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) returned to the practice field this week on a limited basis but is doubtful to play against the Seahawks on Sunday.
If Smith doesn’t suit up, he will have the bye week to continue to get back in shape before the Ravens take on the Patriots on Nov. 3.
Ravens cornerbacks Maurice Canady (thigh) and Anthony Averett (ankle) are questionable. Canady didn’t practice all week and Averett was sidelined Thursday and Friday.
Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (knee) progressed through the week and was a full practice participant on Friday. He’s listed as questionable to play. Stanley will take on Seahawks pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, who is looking to break out from a slow start this season (one sack in six games).
Marcus Peters Will Play ‘A Lot’
Considering all the injuries at cornerback, it’s a very good thing the Ravens got Marcus Peters.
Peters arrived on a flight from Seattle on Wednesday, then immediately drove to the Under Armour Performance Center for a three-hour study session with Ravens coaches.
Peters will have just three practices under his belt, but Harbaugh said he’s ready to go for Sunday’s game.
“He looked good,” Harbaugh said. “As I said, he’s going to play. He’ll probably play a lot. So, we’re looking forward to it. … Hey, we’re going out there with all of our best weapons. We’re not holding anything back. We’re going to try to win the game.”
As a member of the Los Angeles Rams, Peters played against the Seahawks just two weeks ago. He also faced Russell Wilson and Co. twice last season. Thus, he has some familiarity already with what the Seahawks like to do.
It’s more been a week of trying to learn about the Ravens defense, but Peters said it reminds him of the system he was part of for three years in Kansas City.
“I’m a pro, man. Pros, you have to come in, you have to do your job,” Peters said. “The only thing you really have to work on is just the terms and things like that. But I think I’ve got it down so that I’ll be able to play fast and do my thing.”
