The Ravens today placed cornerback Fabian Washington (knee) and running back Matt Lawrence (knee) on injured reserve and signed cornerback Cary Williams off the Titans' practice squad and free-agent fullback Charles Ali.
Ali, 6-feet-2 and 255 pounds, played two seasons (2007 and 2008) for the Cleveland Browns before being released. Most recently he was playing for New York of the United Football League.
An undrafted free agent out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Ali made four starts for the Browns in 2008. He was let go by the team on the final cutdown of training camp this past September.
