Arguably the best defensive lineman on the Baltimore Ravens‘ roster, is going to be inactive for Sunday’s regular season finale against their AFC North division foes, the Cincinnati Bengals. From ESPN,
Jones, who leads the Ravens’ linemen in tackles (52) and sacks (four), didn’t practice all week after suffering a concussion last Sunday. This marks the first time he is inactive since the season opener.
The Ravens will likely start Terrence Cody or DeAngelo Tyson in place of Jones.
Jones isn’t the only inactive for the Ravens. There are a few more that won’ be playing in what could be the team’s final game of the season.
Here’s the Ravens’ complete inactive list: DL Art Jones, CB Asa Jackson, S Omar Brown, C Ryan Jensen, WR Deonte Thompson, LB John Simon and TE Dallas Clark.
