Ravens activate 4 more players off of the Reserve/COVID-19 List on Tuesday

The once ultra-thin roster is starting to come around before Wednesday’s game against the Steelers.

Baltimore Ravens v Cleveland Browns

The Baltimore Ravens have announced the removal of four additional players from the NFL’s Reserve/COVID-19 List on Tuesday. Of the four players, two were already placed on the Reserve/Injured list with season-ending injuries prior to being designated to the Covid list.

Cornerbacks Tavon Young in Khalil Dorsey came off the Covid list Tuesday and will revert back to IR. Both players were lost earlier in the season due to injury.

Another player coming off of the list is defensive tackle Brandon Williams. The run stuffing man in the middle for the Ravens, Williams missed the previous game against the Tennessee Titans due to injury. Williams injured his ankle early in Week 10 against the New England Patriots after only playing five snaps. Whether or not the veteran defensive lineman will be healthy enough to play Wednesday remains to be seen. On the season, Williams has 20 tackles with one being for a loss and zero sacks.

The final player coming off the Reserve/COVID-19 List is quarterback Trace McSorley. Drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL draft out of Penn State, McSorley appeared in one game for the Ravens in 2019 where he took one snap for a 1 yard rushing attempt against the Steelers in Week 17. It is believed McSorley will act as the backup to Robert Griffin III on Wednesday.

Missing from the activation list are running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram who are expected to come off of the Reserve/COVID-19 List on Wednesday prior to the game. As previously reported, the Ravens are planning to have the two players travel separately on Wednesday to join the team.
