Ravens place OLB Justin Houston on reserve/COVID-19 list, activate OLB Pernell McPhee

The Ravens placed one of their top pass rushers, outside linebacker Justin Houston, on the reserve/COVID list Monday, six days ahead of their AFC North showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Under the NFL’s COVID protocols, Houston could come off the list in time to face the Bengals if he is vaccinated and tests negative for the virus twice. If he tested positive and is not vaccinated, he would have to isolate from the team for at least 10 days.

He ranks third on the Ravens with 4 ½ sacks and leads the team with 17 quarterback hits.

The Ravens also announced they have activated another veteran edge defender, Pernell McPhee, from injured reserve to their 53-man roster, meaning he could practice and play this week. McPhee, who has played nine games this season, had minor surgery to clean out his knee. Coach John Harbaugh said he would have a chance to return before the end of the season.
