The Ravens will have a lot of decisions to make Sunday morning when they formulate their inactive list before their game against the Miami Dolphins.
Nine Ravens are listed as questionable on the final injury report, including four wide receivers and starting cornerback Lardarius Webb.
Receivers Jacoby Jones (knee), Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Deonte Thompson (concussion) all practiced Friday, while Brandon Stokley (groin) didn't after being a limited participant earlier in the week.

For Brown and Thompson, along with Webb (hamstring), it was their first appearance on the practice field this week.
Coach John Harbaugh called their presence at practice "very encouraging," but he was noncommittal about whether they'll play Sunday.
"It was good to see those guys out there and [it] made for a better practice, too," Harbaugh said.
Asked about Jones, who hasn't played since Week 1 because of a sprained right knee, Harbaugh said the Pro Bowl returner has made "significant" progress.
“I made a lot of progress just by getting back out there on the green where my team is," Jones said. "That’s the best part, just being out there, feeling like part of the team again. Catch a few passes, JUGS machine, run a few routes. It felt good.”
Jones said he'd leave the decision on whether he'll play Sunday up to Harbaugh and the training staff. Otherwise, he gave off mixed messages, saying he's still "easing" his way back into playing but indicating that he's not dealing with significant pain that would keep him from playing."Everybody’s got pain," Jones said. "It’s just what I can tolerate and deal with. It ain’t no pain I can’t tolerate or deal with, no. Not at all."
Harbaugh said Thompson, who was concussed late in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills, passed the concussion protocol test but still has other hurdles to get over before he's fully cleared to play.
Meanwhile, Webb, who was hurt early in the Bills game, said that he felt "really good" after participating in his first practice this week.
Running back Shaun Draughn (ankle), linebackers Arthur Brown (shoulder) and Albert McClellan (shoulder) and defensive tackle Marcus Spears (knee) are also all considered questionable. McClellan didn't practice all week and is probably the least likely to play out of that group.
Rookie center Ryan Jensen (foot) and defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee) are doubtful and not expected to play.
For the Dolphins, cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) has been declared out. Wide receiver Brandon Gibson (ankle), linebacker Jason Trusnik (rib), defensive end Cameron Wake (knee) and safety Don Jones (elbow) are questionable.
Linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (knee), Jonathan Freeney (shoulder) and Koa Misi (shoulder), defensive tackle Paul Soliai (knee) and defensive backs Nolan Carroll (ankle) and Chris Clemons (glute) are probable.
