Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) will miss his second straight game on Sunday, as he has been declared out for the Week 2 game at Cleveland. Rookie running back Kenneth Dixon (knee) is also listed as out on the team's final pregame injury report.

Rush linebacker Za'Darius Smith (ankle) did not practice all week and is one of five Ravens listed as questionable. The others are linebacker C.J. Mosley (thigh), wide receiver Breshad Perriman (calf), cornerback Jerraud Powers (ankle) and offensive lineman John Urschel (shoulder).

With Dumervil sidelined again and Smith likely to sit as well, rookies Matt Judon and Kamalei Correa could see extensive action against the Browns.

Dumervil is still recovering from offseason foot surgery, and his timetable to return is unclear. In his three previous seasons with the Ravens, Dumervil missed just one game.

"I feel like I’m getting close, but I don’t know what close means yet,” Dumervil said Thursday in the Ravens’ locker room. “In due time when the time is right, I’ll be ready."

Dixon, the Ravens' promising fourth-round pick, has been sidelined since sustaining a knee injury in the third preseason game against Detroit.

Perriman missed Wednesday's practice with a calf injury, leading many to speculate that the oft-injured second-year receiver would be sidelined again. But he was a full practice participant the past two days and is expected to play on Sunday. Ditto for Mosley, who sat out Wednesday's workout.

 

Powers, an offseason acquisition who was expected to contend for the job as the Ravens No. 1 nickel back, returned to practice this week after missing the season opener. Rookie Tavon Young was the top nickel back against the Bills.

The Browns list no one on the final injury report, indicating that everyone on the team is expected to play.
