Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga and defensive tackle Devon Still were declared out against the Baltimore Ravens Friday afternoon, dealing with an MCL and dislocated elbow respectively. Linebacker Michael Boley, who missed last week and was limited this week is also inactive.

The biggest name is tight end Jermaine Gresham, who "looked good" during pregame workouts, but not well enough for the team use him on Sunday -- which makes sense if they want to continue resting him so he'll ready for the long-haul. Alex Smith is expected to start for Gresham with Vinny Rey in for Maualuga.

Maualuga, Boley, Still and Gresham are joined by center Trevor Robinson, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson and cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris.

Also of note, with running back Giovani Bernard dealing with a rib injury, the team has activated running back Rex Burkhead for the first time this year.

As for the Baltimore Ravens, offensive guard Kelechi Osemele was an early scratch with a back injury and placed on Injured Reserve (not one of the inactive players because he's no longer on their 53-man roster). He's joined by former Bengals running back Bernard Scott, wide receiver Brandon Stokley, center Ryan Jensen, safety Omar Brown, defensive back Asa Jackson, linebacker John Simon and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Corey Graham, as well as linebacker Daryl Smith, all of whom were limited this week, are active.
