The Ravens are expected to play without two starters on offense -- offensive tackle Jared Gaither (foot) and wide receiver Mark Clayton (hamstring and knee) -- when they play the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Gaither has been ruled out, and Clayton is listed as doubtful. For the second straight game, rookie first-round pick Michael Oher will start at left tackle and Oniel Cousins will play at right tackle.

It's unclear about who will start for Clayton. Kelley Washington (ankle), who is questionable, is considered a game-time decision. Demetrius Williams would start if Clayton and Washington are both sidelined. Justin Harper would then become the No. 3 wide receiver.

Besides Gaither, backup defensive tackle Brandon McKinney (back) is also out. There are seven Ravens who are questionable: Washington, linebackers Jarret Johnson (knee and back) and Tavares Gooden (groin); defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (ankle), safetys Ed Reed (groin and foot) and K.J.Gerard (thigh); and tight end L.J. Smith (ankle).

Three Ravens are probable: center Matt Birk (neck), wide receiver Derrick Mason (finger) and linebacker-defensive end Terrell Suggs (knee).
