Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams is active for the first time this season for today's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
For the first time this year, rookie safety Christian Thompson is inactive. He's a healthy scratch.
Meanwhile, the Ravens also deactivated rookie cornerback Asa Jackson, offensive tackle Jah Reid (strained right calf), tight end Billy Bajema, defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson, outside linebacker Sergio Kindle and defensive tackle Bryan Hall.
The Chiefs deactivated third quarterback Ricky Stanzi, cornerback Devon Wylie, starting safety Kendrick Lewis, cornerback Jalil Brown, running back Peyton Hillis and starting defensive end Ropati Pitoitua.
With Pitoitua and Dorsey sidelined, the Chiefs are down to their third-string defensive end, Allen Bailey.
Rookie first-round Dontari Poe is starting again ahead of Anthony Toribio.
Free safety Abram Elam is starting in place of Lewis.
The Chiefs cut former Ravens center Bryan Mattison on Saturday and replaced him on the active roster with defensive back Neiko Thorpe.
