Ravens activate LB Justin Houston, three others; Lamar Jackson back
Baltimore activated four defensive players from the reserve/COVID-19 list before practice Wednesday.
Additionally, coach John Harbaugh said quarterback Lamar Jackson would practice on a limited basis, making his first appearance on the field since sustaining an ankle injury on Dec. 12 in a loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Now that they are off the COVID-19 list, outside linebacker Justin Houston, safety Geno Stone and inside linebackers Chris Board and Kristian Welch now will be available to play Sunday when the Ravens (8-7) travel west to play the Los Angeles Rams (11-4).
Cornerbacks Chris Westry and Jimmy Smith and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee were activated earlier this week. Starting outside linebacker Tyus Bowser and backup safety Ar’Darius Washington went on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.
Sunday’s game is a must-win for the Ravens, who were 8-3 and in first place in the AFC North division on Nov. 28. They have lost four games since and now need to beat the Rams — and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 18 — and get some help to earn a playoff spot.
