Ravens-Dolphins Notebook: Dobbins Could Make Debut
OWINGS MILLS (Md. The Injury Report gave some insight into the team’s personnel, although John Harbaugh, Ravens coach, declined to disclose which players might be available against the Miami Dolphins Week 2.
Runningback J.K. Dobbins participated in practice Friday. Dobbins spoke briefly to the media after practice and said that he would “we’ll be seeing” when asked if he would play Sunday.
Left tackle Ronnie Stanley didn’t speak with reporters but he did knock down rookie Daniel Faalele in a drill during practice. Stanley, who has been out of action since last season’s opening due to an ankle injury, is still considered doubtful to play.
The injury report for the Ravens shows several cornerbacks, which could pose a problem against the Dolphins’ wide receivers.
Marlon Huffrey was limited this week with a groin injury, while Brandon Stephens is still dealing with a quad problem. The Ravens are now a little short at cornerback, with Kyle Fuller suffering a season-ending knee injury. Stephens and Humprhey won’t be able to play Week 2 against Miami Dolphins.
Marcus Peters took part in his second consecutive full practice since last season’s knee injury. This is a good sign.
Humphrey and Stephens were all listed as questionable.
Rookies Damarion Williams and Jalyn Armour Davis could play important roles against the Dolphins.

“They’d be ready; they look good, but they’re rookies,” Harbaugh said. They’ve worked hard, so it would be a new experience. They are talented men. They’ll be playing regardless of the numbers. Wide receiver James Proche is listed in doubt The Dolphins will have one starting tackle for Week 2, and it could be two before kickoff.
Head Coach Mike McDaniel stated before practice Friday that Austin Jackson, the starting right tackle for the Dolphins, will be placed on injured reserve. Terron Armstead, the veteran left tackle, was also listed as questionable for Friday’s game at M&T Bank Stadium.
Jackson sustained an ankle injury in the 20-7 victory against the New England Patriots last Sunday, while Armstead had to miss two snaps in the fourth quarter because of a toe injury. Armstead’s availability to play in the Baltimore game will likely depend on his pain tolerance.
