Ravens CB Jimmy Smith, OLB Daelin Hayes inactive vs. Raiders

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith (ankle) is inactive for Monday night’s season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Smith, entering his 11th season with the Ravens, was listed as questionable ahead of the team’s season opener. The 32-year-old returned to practice Sept. 8 after suffering an ankle sprain during training camp Aug. 6.

The Ravens will also be without starting cornerback Marcus Peters, who suffered a season-ending knee injury at practice Friday. Behind All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey, the Ravens will rely on fourth-year player Anthony Averett and sixth-year player Tavon Young, who missed all but two games last season with a knee injury.

Rookie outside linebacker Daelin Hayes (knee) is also inactive despite being a full participant in practice Saturday.

The Ravens on Saturday ruled out defensive end Derek Wolfe, who injured his back and hip during the team’s joint practice with the Carolina Panthers in mid-August.

Rookie left guard Ben Cleveland and rookie safety Ar’Darius Washington also will not suit up in the season opener.

Meanwhile, Raiders left guard Richie Incognito (calf) and safety Roderic Teamer (shoulder/ankle) have been ruled out, while quarterback Nathan Peterman, defensive end Malcolm Koonce, tight end Nick Bowers and defensive end Clelin Ferrell are inactive. Ferrell, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, is a healthy scratch.
