Ravens’ Yanda likely to miss tonight’s game

Baltimore Sun - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Start­ing right guard Mar­shal Yanda didn’t prac­tice again Wed­nes­day and is listed as doubt­ful for the Ravens’ game against the Cleve­land Browns tonight at M&T Bank Sta­dium. Af­ter miss­ing two games with a shoul­der in­jury, Yanda started in Sun­day’s vic­tory over the Pitts­burgh Steel­ers. How­ever, he hasn’t prac­ticed the past three days, an in­di­ca­tion ei­ther that he had a set­back or that his shoul­der just hasn’t re­sponded the way he had hoped. The Ravens could use ei­ther John Urschel or Ryan Jensen at right guard, and vet­eran jour­ney­man Vladimir Du­casse could get an op­por­tu­nity as well. The Ravens will also be with­out tight end Crock­ett Gill­more (thigh), lineback­ers Elvis Dumervil (foot) and Ka­malei Cor­rea (thigh) and cor­ner­back Sha­reece Wright (ham­string). All four play­ers, who also were side­lined for the Steel­ers game, were de­clared out. Rookie run­ning back Ken­neth Dixon, who suf­fered a bruised chest late in the Steel­ers game, prac­ticed in full for a third straight day and was listed as ques­tion­able. The win­less Browns ruled out start­ing cor­ner­back Ja­mar Tay­lor ( groin).
