Ravens offensive tackle Jah Reid is listed as doubtful on the final injury report of the week.
Reid might as well be ruled out, though, considering that he hasn't practiced in weeks since aggravating a strained right calf for the second time since initially being carted off the field during a June minicamp.
Rookie cornerback Asa Jackson is questionable with an illness that has prevented him from practicing for the past three days.
"He is sick, gastrointestinal issues," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "We've all had those, so that should paint a vivid picture for everybody."
The Ravens are relatively healthy heading into Monday night's season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Backup strong safety Sean Considine is probable with a concussion. He has passed a baseline neurological test, clearing him for contact.
Rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw (sprained right shoulder) is probable.
Meanwhile, the Bengals have ruled out rookie first-round cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick due to a knee injury.
Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (knee) and running back Bernard Scott (hand) are doubtful.
Cornerback Jason Allen (quadriceps) is questionable.
The following players are probable for Cincinnati: starting quarterback Andy Dalton (right biceps), defensive end Robert Geathers (knee), tight end Jermaine Gresham (knee), tight end Donald Lee (thigh) and linebacker Dan Skuta (head).
