The Ravens have signed cornerback Chris Greenwood off the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad to their active roster.

Greenwood, who was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the fifth round in 2012 out of Albion College, joins the Ravens after the team placed cornerback Asa Jackson on injured reserve earlier this week. Jackson was the fifth Ravens cornerback to be declared out for the season.
