All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley is one of eight Ravens players listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team.
Stanley, who did not participate in practice Thursday or Friday because of a shoulder injury, is the Ravens' top offensive lineman and one of their most durable. Washington has one of the NFL’s most productive defensive lines, though top draft pick Chase Young will miss Week 4 with a groin injury.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith, who was limited Thursday with a knee injury, also is questionable after missing practice Friday. A versatile defender who can match up with tight ends and wide receivers, Smith played 66 defensive snaps in Monday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Wide receiver Chris Moore (finger/thigh) was listed as questionable, but he appears unlikely to make his season debut Sunday after missing practice Friday.
Also questionable are running back Justice Hill (thigh), defensive end Derek Wolfe (elbow), defensive tackle Justin Madubuike (knee), inside linebacker L.J. Fort (thigh) and defensive back-linebacker Anthony Levine Sr. (abdomen).
Hill, who has not appeared in a game this season, was a full participant in all three practices this week. Wolfe and Levine were limited at practice Friday after missing Thursday’s. Madubuike, a rookie who has yet to make his NFL debut, was limited Thursday and Friday
Coach John Harbaugh said on a Friday video conference call that he had “no insight” on the status of Stanley or other players battling injuries. If Stanley is unavailable, veteran D.J. Fluker likely will start at left tackle. Fluker, a former first-round pick at tackle, played mostly guard in training camp and struggled in emergency duty in Week 1 after a minor second-half ankle injury sidelined Stanley.
“He’s a heck of a football player,” Harbaugh said of Fluker, who has started just three games at left tackle, all in 2013. “He’s done well for us, and we’re happy he’s here. Great attitude. He’s worked so hard, and if he’s called upon, he’ll be ready to go.”
In addition to Young, Washington ruled out starting wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. (toe) as well as running back Bryce Love (knee) and linebacker Cole Holcomb (knee), both backups. Three starters — wide receiver Terry McLaurin (thigh), right tackle Morgan Moses (hip) and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (illness) — are questionable, as is backup defensive end Ryan Anderson (ankle).
