The Ravens ruled rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) and rookie cornerback Tray Walker (concussion) out for Sunday's game and declared offensive tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder) doubtful. Players with that designation are given a 25 percent chance to play.

If, as expected, Monroe doesn't play, James Hurst will start his fourth game this season.

Tight end Maxx Williams (knee/ankle), left guard Kelechi Osemele (knee) and safety Kendrick Lewis (knee), who were all limited throughout the practice week, are questionable. However, Lewis, who missed Monday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, said that he expects to play.

"I feel like I'm good to go. I did a lot of things this week in practice, going out there and competing and was able to move around pretty well," Lewis said. "I feel good, I feel confident."

Wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. (knee) and safety Terrence Brooks (thumb) are both probable. Smith tweaked his knee a day earlier in practice, but was a full participant Friday. Brooks missed the past two weeks after having surgery on his thumb.

For the Chargers, three starters – guard Orlando Franklin (ankle), linebacker Manti Te'o (ankle) and safety Eric Weddle (groin) – were ruled out and another top reserve, rookie linebacker Denzel Perryman (biceps), is doubtful.

Perennial Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates (knee) is questionable after sitting out last week.
