Ravens starting defensive lineman Arthur Jones is active today against the Cleveland Browns after missing the first game of the season with an irregular heartbeat.
Jones returned to practice on a limited basis this week after his symptoms subsided following treatment and rest. Jones had been out since dealing with an illness after the third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Ravens deactivated new kickoff returner Shaun Draughn, the former Kansas City Chiefs running back who was signed this week. The Ravens also deactivated Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones, who is expected to be sidelined for the next four to six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Also scratched: wide receiver Deonte Thompson (sprained left foot), center Ryan Jensen (foot surgery), defensive tackle Brandon Williams (right big toe), offensive lineman Jah Reid and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson.
As expected, offensive tackle Michael Oher is active and set to start after participating fully in practice all week following a sprained right ankle against the Denver Broncos.
The Browns deactivated quarterback Brian Hoyer, tight end MarQueis Gray, offensive lineman Martin Wallace, offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao, defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin and Armonty Bryant and linebacker Paul Hazel.
