Ravens elect not to elevate RBs Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman

The Baltimore Ravens elevated two players from the practice squad for their season opener Monday night, just not the pair people were expecting.

The Ravens elevated defensive tackle Justin Ellis and safety Anthony Levine for the Ravens’ game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.

Le’Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman were in the running to be elevated after the Ravens incurred a third injury to their decimated backfield last week. Gus Edwards, in line to be the starter after J.K. Dobbins went down, suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

The Ravens will go with starting RB Ty’Son Williams being backed up by Latavius Murray and Trenton Cannon.

The team signed Murray and Cannon last week. Murray was let go by the New Orleans Saints and Cannon was released by Carolina Panthers.

The Ravens also lost Justice Hill to a torn Achilles on Sept. 2.

Levine, 34, has played in 129 games (four starts), all with the Ravens. He has two career interceptions and four sacks over the previous 10 seasons..

Ellis, 30, has played in 83 games (45 starts) for the Raiders and Ravens. He is entering his eighth NFL season.
