Canty is recovering from wrist surgery and Bilukidi has a sprained right ankle.

The Ravens have declared left tackle Eugene Monroe (arthroscopic knee surgery) and left guard Kelechi Osemele (bruised, hyperextended right knee) as doubtful on the injury report.

Monroe just returned to practice this week and is expected to miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday. Osemele is expected to miss his second game in a row. Neither practiced Friday.

The Ravens are expected to start rookies James Hurst and John Urschel at left tackle and left guard, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Ravens are expected to get rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan back for Sunday's game. He has missed the past four games since injuring his meniscus against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second game of the season. Jernigan had arthroscopic knee surgery.

Jernigan is listed as probable along with wide receiver Kamar Aiken, who passed his baseline neurological test after suffering a mild concussion against the Buccaneers on a hit from safety Mark Barron.

"Everything went good, I felt good coming off the ball and am getting back into doing things," said Jernigan, a second-round draft pick from Florida State. "I feel like there's a good chance I can play. Everything's been coming up positive all week. I feel good about it. I'm a team-first kind of guy. If I can go, I definitely know I can help the team. I feel good about where I'm at."

Wide receiver Marlon Brown (pelvis) is probable after missing the Buccaneers game.

The Ravens are expected to have rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill) active for the second consecutive game after he scored a touchdown on his first NFL reception last week.

The Ravens haven't determined the roster status of safety Will Hill, who's returned from a six-game suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy and is practicing under a roster exemption that expires Monday, or nose tackle Terrence Cody, who's returned to practice from offseason hip surgery and remains on the reserve-physically unable to perform list. Hill is regarded as having an above-average chance of being activated between now and Saturday afternoon's NFL deadline. Cody isn't expected to be activated this week.

"I have a pretty good idea," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "I think they're both capable of playing, put it that way. It depends on some other things. There's a domino effect to some of that, but they're both capable of playing physically. They're both ready. They had a good week of practice, and they showed that they're ready to play."

Cody said he's encouraged by how he practiced this week.

"Yeah, I felt real good," Cody said. "I feel like I showed them I haven't been sitting around. I showed them I've been working, just trying to move around show them a little hop in my step and show them I've got some bounce still. If they need me to, I can suit up."

The Falcons ruled out wide receiver Harry Douglas with a foot injury.

The following players are probable for Atlanta: defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), guard Justin Blalock (back), wide receivers Devin Hester (hamstring) and Julio Jones (ankle) and linebackers Prince Shembo (knee) and Nate Stupar (knee).
