Wolfe is listed as doubt­ful vs. Ea­gles

Stan­ley among 7 Ravens con­sid­ered ques­tion­able

Baltimore Sun - - SCOREBOARD - By Daniel Oye­fusi and Jonas Shaf­fer

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.
