The Bengals and Ravens will face off in Baltimore today for the first time of the 2019 season, and each team will be without key starters.

Here’s who the Bengals will be without today:

QB Jake Dolegala

WR A.J. Green

OL Cordy Glenn

OL Andre Smith

DL Carlos Dunlap

DL Kerry Wynn

DL Ryan Glasgow

Dolegala, who’s been inactive for the entire season thus far, is the only healthy scratch for today. Green (ankle) and Glenn (concussion) are missing their sixth games of the season and the hope is Green returns as early as next week.

Smith (ankle), Wynn (concussion) and Glasgow (thigh) all did not practice this week and were declared out on Friday. The defensive line is used to playing without Wynn and Glasgow, who’ve missed a combined five games this season so far, and will have Andrew Brown and Renell Wren playing on the edge and at 3-technique plenty this game.

Their jobs got a little more difficult now that they have to replace Dunlap (knee) as well. This is the first game Dunlap will miss since the Week 2 home opener of the 2012 season. The defense will at least have Shawn Williams, who was listed as questionable with a thigh injury he suffered last week.

Here are the inactives for the Ravens:

QB Trace McSorley

WR Marquise Brown

OL Ben Powers

DL Daylon Mack

LB Patrick Onwuasor

CB Jimmy Smith

CB Anthony Averett

Brown (ankle) did not practice all week but was still listed as questionable. It was unlikely that he would get the green light for today, and the Ravens will be without him for the first time all season.

On defense, a suspect unit will not have starters Onwuasor (ankle) or Smith (knee). Onwuasor was also questionable and a game-time decision, so Baltimore didn’t get lucky with him or Brown.

The notable omission here is tight end Mark Andrews, who was questionable with a shoulder injury. Losing Brown hurts, but Andrews can do just as much damage in the passing game.
