Ravens' Rick Wagner, Kelechi Osemele probable against Dolphins; Maxx Williams declared out

Ravens starting right tackle Rick Wagner is probable to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins after missing Friday's practice for noninjury related reasons, while left guard Kelechi Osemele is probable and could return after missing two games with a knee injury.

Without the two, the Ravens offensive line would be even further in disarray, with only right guard Marshal Yanda starting in his Week 1 spot.

Wagner was a surprise absence Friday, but coach John Harbaugh said he was "not a concern" for Sunday.

Osemele seemed assured of his status for Sunday's game.

"I'll be ready to go," he said Friday.

As it stands, only the two top reserves at the beginning of the season -- John Urschel and James Hurst -- will start Sunday, while three Week 1 starters will be in their respective places.

Urschel is the new starting center after Jeremy Zuttah's season-ending pectoral injury, while Hurst will likely start for the sixth time in 12 games this season in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who is doubtful with a shoulder injury that kept him out of Monday's win over the Cleveland Browns.

Monroe missed three games with a concussion, and could miss a third game because of the shoulder injury that Harbaugh said last month has been lingering since Monroe was in college. Monroe has finished just three games this season.

Wide receiver Marlon Brown is also doubtful after missing the Browns game, having not practiced for two weeks because of a back injury. Brown was playing a marginal role in the Ravens offense before his injury.

The only player declared out was tight end Maxx Williams, who did not have a catch Monday and suffered a concussion in the second half. Williams was limited earlier in the season by a leg injury, and will miss his second game of his rookie season because of injury.

His absence will mean Crockett Gillmore and Nick Boyle are the only two active tight ends, pending a roster move.
