Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda inactive for Ravens vs. Browns

The Ravens will be without Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda on Thursday night when they face the winless Cleveland Browns.

Yanda, who was listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury, is a gameday inactive and will miss his third game in the past four.


Ryan Jensen, who started in Yanda's place against the Giants and Jets, is also inactive, meaning the Ravens will be starting their sixth different offensive line combination in the past six games. John Urschel or Vladimir Ducasse will start at right guard.

The Ravens also will be without rush linebacker Elvis Dumervil, who has missed all but two games this season with a foot injury. He had already been declared out in Wednesday's injury report.

In addition, tight end Crockett Gillmore (thigh) is inactive for the second straight game. Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller will be the only two tight ends in uniform.

The other Ravens inactives include cornerback Shareece Wright, linebacker Kamalei Correa and defensive tackle Willie Henry.

For the Browns, starting cornerback Jamar Taylor is inactive because of a groin injury.

The Browns other inactives are quarterback Joe Callahan, linebacker Corey Lemonier, offensive linemen Gabe Ikard and Jonathan Cooper, wide receiver Jordan Payton and defensive lineman Xavier Cooper.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”
