Despite a full week of practice, Terrence Cody will not play when the Ravens play host to the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday.
The team elected to deactivate the rookie nose tackle even though he was no longer listed on the team's injury report after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee Aug. 31.
The Ravens also decided to deactivate defensive tackles Lamar Divens and rookie Arthur Jones, which leaves the defense with just three interior linemen in Kelly Gregg, Haloti Ngata and Brandon McKinney.
Offensive tackle Jared Gaither (thoracic disk in back), wide receiver Donte' Stallworth (broken left foot), inside linebacker Tavares Gooden (dislocated left shoulder), defensive end Paul Kruger and rookie cornerback Prince Miller were also scratched.
Marshal Yanda will start at right tackle and Chris Chester at right guard for the third consecutive game.
The Browns offense will take the field without three starters in quarterback Jake Delhomme (high ankle sprain), running back Jerome Harrison (thigh) and wide receiver Brian Robiskie (hamstring).
The defense will miss a pair of key cogs in starting nose tackle Shaun Rogers (ankle and hip) and inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson. Jackson (chest) was placed on injured reserve on Saturday and will miss the remainder of the season.
Seneca Wallace will start for Delhomme, Peyton Hillis for Harrison and Joshua Cribbs for Robiskie. Ahtyba Rubin will replace Rogers, and Eric Barton will make his second straight start for Jackson.
Cleveland also scratched offensive linemen Shawn Lauvao and Steve Vallos, linebacker Marcus Benard and wide receiver Carlton Mitchell.
