Ravens Announce Three Roster Moves

NFL insider shares what one rival team thinks the Ravens' 'fatal flaw' is

The Cardinals had until Saturday to activate quarterback Kyler Murray to the active roster. But as the deadline passed, Murray remained inactive, meaning he’s ineligible to play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

 

 

 

 

It’s not too surprising, seeing as Murray’s still returning from injury. And bringing back your starting quarterback who may not be 100% against the Ravens’ No. 1 ranked defense (by DVOA) who also lead the NFL in sacks (29) would be unwise. Ergo, the Cardinals are sticking with backup quarterback Joshua Dobbs.

As for the Ravens, a trio of activations and elevations were made on Saturday. The Ravens announced on Saturday that they have elevated DB DeAndre Houston-Carson and RB Owen Wright for Week 8.

 

 

The team is also activating WR Tylan Wallace from injured reserve. Houston-Carson, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Bears back in 2016.

 

 

 

 

He was waived in 2017 and later signed to the Bears practice squad before being promoted to their active roster soon after. Chicago declined to tender Houston-Carson a restricted offer in 2019 before re-signing him to a one-year contract. He returned on consecutive one-year deals in the last three offseasons.

Houston-Carson signed on with the Ravens during training camp before joining the Texans soon after. He recently returned to the Ravens.

 

 

In 2023, Houston-Carson appeared in two games for the Texans and recorded two tackles. With the activation of Wright, it’s likely a sign the Ravens will not have running back Keaton Mitchell active in Week 8.

He was serving only few snaps on offense. With the trio of moves to the active roster, the Ravens will have Mitchell’s offensive snaps and special teams snaps covered.
