Ravens RB Gus Edwards to make season debut vs. Browns; LT Ronnie Stanley, WR Rashod Bateman will play – The Denver Post


After a 21-month absence, Gus Edwards is back.

The Ravens running back was activated for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, his first appearance since tearing his ACL before last season. Edwards last played in the Ravens’ season-ending playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills in January 2021.

Edwards returned to practice Oct. 5 and was activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list Saturday. His activation came as Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins returned to the injured reserve with a knee injury.

The Ravens’ offense got more help Sunday with the activation of left tackle Ronnie Stanley, who was questionable after falling ill Saturday; wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot), sidelined since Week 4; and tight end Mark Andrews and fullback Patrick Ricard, both limited in practice by knee injuries last week.

Outside linebacker Justin Houston (groin) will also return to action Sunday, his first game since suffering a strained groin in Week 3.

Reserve offensive lineman Ben Cleveland (foot/illness) was not activated. Wide receiver Tylan Wallace, running back Mike Davis, inside linebacker A.J. Klein and cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis are healthy scratches.

For the Browns, starting right guard Wyatt Teller (calf) and starting cornerback Denzel Ward (concussion) are inactive, along with five reserves: quarterback Kellen Mond, wide receiver Anthony Schwartz, offensive Linemen Joe Haeg and Chris Hubbard and defensive end Isaac Rochell.
