Ravens activate all five cornerbacks, scratch Pitta

Matched up against the NFL's top-ranked aerial attack, the Ravens will have their complete arsenel of cornerbacks.

All five cornerbacks are active for Sunday's showdown with the Denver Broncos, including Josh Wilson, who was a healthy scratch against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday for the first time in his career. Free safety Tom Zbikowski, who was limited Friday because of a thigh injury and was listed as questionable, is also active.

To accommodate those players, the team deactivated rookie tight end Dennis Pitta for the first time in his fledgling career. The Ravens also scratched defensive tackle Lamar Divens, who was active against the Steelers.

The team also deactivated offensive tackles Jared Gaither (thoracic disk in back) and Scott Kooistra, wide receiver Donte' Stallworth (broken left foot), linebacker Tavares Gooden (dislocated left shoulder), defensive end Paul Kruger (sprained medial collateral ligament in left knee) and rookie defensive tackle Arthur Jones.

The Broncos will likely have the services of cornerback Andre Goodman, who had been limited last week due to a quad injury and was questionable. Also, rookie Tim Tebow will back up starter Kyle Orton.

Denver deactivated offensive linemen Chris Clark, Stanley Daniels and Eric Olsen, running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), fullback Spencer Larsen (ankle), wide receiver Eric Decker and cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson. Brady Quinn is the third (emergency) quarterback.
