The musical chairs at linebacker continue for the Ravens.
Paul Kruger won't be in the lineup vs. the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, which means rookie Courtney Upshaw likely will start.
Upshaw, the Ravens' top draft pick this year, underperformed in training camp because of right shoulder injuries that caused him to miss time and being overweight.
But Upshaw recently declared he was down 20 pounds to 271 and coaches believe he is rounding into form.
Upshaw got a half-sack of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton last week in the season-opener.
Kruger has been dealing with a back injury and was held out of practice all week.
Kruger and Albert McClellan have been starting for the first time in their careers with the absence of Terrell Suggs (Achilles) and Jarret Johnson leaving via free agency.
The Ravens' other inactives for Sunday's game include offensive tackle Jah Reid, cornerback Asa Jackson, running back Bobby Rainey, tight end Billy Bajema, defensive tackle Bryan Hall defensive end DeAngelo Tyson and receiver LaQuan Williams. Anthony Allen was activated in place of Rainey.
The Eagles will have receivers Jeremy Maclin (hip) and DeSean Jackson (ankle) available.
