Wolfe is listed as doubtful vs. Eagles
Stanley among 7 Ravens considered questionable
Ravens defensive end Derek Wolfe is doubtful for Sunday’s road game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Wolfe was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice but not did practice Thursday and Friday because of what the team listed as a neck injury and concussion.
The 30-year-old has already missed one game this season, Week 4 against Washington, when the team held him out after being flagged for COVID-19 symptoms.
Seven Ravens are questionable, including defensive back/ linebacker Anthony Levine Sr., who did not practice this week because of an abdomen injury that he has played through for the last few weeks.
Levine has played in 117 consecutive games for the Ravens, dating to 2013.
Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (shoulder), rookie right guard Tyre Phillips (shoulder), cornerbacks Marcus Peters (thigh) and Jimmy Smith (knee), and wide receivers Miles Boykin (thigh) and Chris Moore (finger/thigh) are also questionable.
Boykin’s injury is a new addition to the injury report. He was limited in Friday’s practice.
Harbaugh said Friday that Moore, who has yet to play this season, is a “possibility” to be active Sunday “based on the numbers.”
The Eagles have already ruled out seven players. The group includes offensive linemen Lane Johnson (ankle) and Matt Pryor (illness), wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot), safety Marcus Epps (rib), linebacker Duke Riley (rib) and cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle).
With Johnson and Pryor, two starters, sidelined, the Eagles will be using their fifth different offensive line combination this season when they line up against the Ravens.
Cornerback Darius Slay (concussion) is questionable to play but has cleared concussion protocol.
Fraternal tight ends
Ravens tight end Nick Boyle had an unexpected reporter grilling him on Friday’s video conference: Mark Andrews.
With the help of a team spokesman, the Pro Bowl tight end hopped on a Zoom call after practice to ask how Boyle became such a good blocker (“I don’t think there’s anyone better than you”) and about Boyle’s relationship with, well, himself.
Boyle took the first question seriously, explaining that his high school football team’s triple-option offense prioritized blocking.
“The second part of the question, Mark, I think we have a very good relationship,” Boyle said, doing his best to suppress a grin.
“Sometimes you can get annoying. Sometimes you need to grow up a little bit. But I love coming to work and seeing you every day.
“I think we have a really good relationship, and I think we have the most fun in the building and have the best bond, strongest bond, in the building, for sure.”
“Love you, brother,” Andrews said. It was just another day at work for the Ravens’ tight ends, who in recent years have been more like a fraternity than a group of coworkers.
