LT Ronnie Stanley, WR Marquise Brown among Ravens sidelined at Wednesday’s practice; OL Tyre Phillips on short-term IR

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley and wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown were among four Ravens who did not participate in practice Wednesday.

Stanley, who struggled in a season-opening loss Monday night to the Las Vegas Raiders, missed a day of practice last week for rest. He’s still regaining flexibility in his ankle, which required surgery last season.


Coach John Harbaugh did not have an update on Stanley’s status after practice Wednesday, before the team’s injury report was released. Brown, who was sidelined by a hamstring injury in training camp, was out with an ankle injury. He also dealt with an ankle injury late in his rookie season.


Also missing were cornerback Chris Westry (knee), who played 33 defensive snaps Monday, and defensive end Derek Wolfe, who didn’t practice last week and remains sidelined by a hip/back injury.

Rookie outside linebacker Daelin Hayes (knee) and cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey (back) and Jimmy Smith (ankle) were limited Wednesday. Hayes and Smith were inactive Monday night.

Meanwhile, with defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (COVID-19) returning to practice, every player on the Chiefs’ active roster was available for Wednesday’s workout. Reserve offensive lineman Austin Blythe (abdomen) and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders (glute) were limited.

Harbaugh said offensive lineman Tyre Phillips (knee) is on short-term injured reserve, meaning his season is not over. The second-year lineman, who was carted off the field in Monday night’s game, will miss at least three weeks and could return in Week 5.

After rotating between guard and tackle during training camp, Phillips beat out Ben Powers and Ben Cleveland for the Week 1 starting job at left guard. Powers replaced Phillips after his second-quarter injury and played the final 39 offensive snaps. Cleveland, who missed parts of training camp with a concussion, was inactive for the game in Las Vegas.

Phillips was the eighth Ravens player to be placed on IR over the past three weeks.

More roster moves

Defensive back/linebacker Anthony Levine Sr. and defensive tackle Justin Ellis were promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Wednesday. The Ravens also re-signed veteran offensive tackle Andre Smith and added cornerback Kevon Seymour to their practice squad.


Levine and Ellis both played Monday. Ellis played 19 snaps on defense, while Levine played 27 snaps on special teams.

Smith, a 13-year veteran, gives the Ravens some depth on a banged-up offensive line. Besides Stanley and right tackle Alejandro Villanueva, the Ravens have just one other lineman with experience at tackle, Patrick Mekari.

Seymour, a sixth-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2016, has 52 tackles and seven pass breakups in 33 career games. He also got significant special teams experience early in his career.
