Kelechi Osemele out, leaving Ravens offensive line thin Sunday against Rams

The Ravens will start a pair of reserves on the interior of the offensive line Sunday, as starting left guard Kelechi Osemele is out with a knee injury.

Third-year reserve lineman Ryan Jensen, who has played in five games over three seasons since being a sixth-round NFL draft pick in 2013, will make his first career start at left guard alongside center John Urschel.


Urschel is making his first career start at center.

Elsewhere, the Ravens will have just two tight ends active a week after debuting a new focus on three-tight end sets. Rookie Nick Boyle, who didn't practice this past week with a foot injury and was listed as doubtful Friday, is inactive.


Tight end Chase Ford, signed off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad on Tuesday, is also inactive.

Another of the three players signed on Tuesday, cornerback Cassius Vaughn, is inactive as well. The only of the three midweek signings to dress Sunday is wide receiver Kaelin Clay, who could return punts.

Running back Terrance West (Towson), who was added to the active roster on Wednesday, won't make his Ravens debut in front of the home fans Sunday, and wide receiver Joe Morgan is inactive for the second straight game since signing before the bye week.

Defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore is inactive for the fourth straight game.

Among notable inclusions on the gameday roster are tackle De'Ondre Wesley who is active as a reserve offensive lineman alongside James Hurst, and safety Terrence Brooks, who hasn't played in nearly a month.
