The Ravens have promoted practice squad cornerback Terrell Bonds and inside linebacker Kristian Welch to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Under new NFL rules, up to two practice squad players can be elevated to the active roster each week. Players can return to the practice squad twice without first having to clear waivers.
This is the second elevation for both Bonds and Welch. Bonds was promoted in Week 3, while Welch was called up in Week 6, though neither saw a defensive snap. Bonds, a second-year practice squad player, played seven special teams snaps in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs; Welch, an undrafted rookie from Iowa, played 24 special teams snaps in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Steelers, meanwhile, signed former Maryland running back Trey Edmunds off their practice squad and promoted rookie safety Antoine Brooks Jr. ahead of Sunday’s game. They could join three other Terps — rookie running back Anthony McFarland Jr., safety Sean Davis and offensive tackle Derwin Gray — on the game day roster.
