Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata is active for today's game against the New York Jets at M&T Bank Stadium.

Ngata missed the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears due to a sprained left knee, but he returned to practice Friday on a limited basis and had no setbacks.


Ngata, who looked fine during warmups and is set to start today's game, has no ligament damage in an injury similar to what sidelined him in Super Bowl XLVII, according to a source.

Ngata was listed as questionable on the injury report along with linebacker Daryl Smith (hamstring) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (abdominal). Both Smith and Webb are active today and will start.

The Ravens scratched cornerback Asa Jackson, safety Omar Brown, running back Bernard Scott, center Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Deonte Thompson, outside linebacker John Simon and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

Wide receiver Marlon Brown returns to action today after missing the Bears game with a knee injury, and wide receiver Brandon Stokley (groin) is active for the first time since Week 3.

Tight end Dennis Pitta (right hip surgery) remains on the injured reserve-designated to return list.

The Jets previously ruled out starting wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow) and backup linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), downgrading them from doubtful on Saturday.

The Jets also deactivated quarterback David Garrard, running back Alex Green, guard Will Campbell, offensive tackle Ben Ijalana and offensive lineman Oday Aboushi.
