With depth along the defensive line becoming an issue, Lamar Divens could see his most extensive action of the season this Sunday when the Ravens meet the Denver Broncos.
But the defensive tackle wasn't quite so sure.
"I don't really know right now," he said after Friday's practice. "I guess that's a game-time decision. They never do tell me before the weekend."
With defensive end Paul Kruger out for the next two to four weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee and defensive end Cory Redding sitting out last Sunday's win against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a concussion, the unit could use any and all contributions from a group that includes Haloti Ngata, Kelly Gregg, Brandon McKinney, Divens and rookies Terrence Cody and Arthur Jones.
Divens, who has been deactivated in two of the team's first four games, declined to say whether he was optimistic that he would play Sunday.
"I approach it the same every week, as if I'm going to play every down," he said. "But I really don't know."
