Elvis Dumervil confirms he plans to play Sunday against Raiders

Elvis Dumervil confirms he plans to play Sunday against Raiders

OWINGS MILLS – Ravens outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil confirmed he expected to be in the lineup Sunday against the Raiders, playing his first game since offseason foot surgery.

“I’m excited to go out in front of our crowd,” Dumervil said. “The team’s been doing great, 3-0 start against a tough opponent, well-coached team, good offense. We’re excited for the challenge.”

Dumervil said he came close to playing in Week 3, but hoped waiting an extra week would make him more effective and keep his foot pain from lingering. Dumervil and Terrell Suggs haven't played together since Week 1 of 2015, when Suggs suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. In 2014, Dumervil and Suggs combined for 29 sacks, making them the NFL's top sack tandem.

“As much I wanted to be out there Week 1, I just wasn’t ready. I’m happy to be coming back with the D-line that we have. The guys inside can rush, Sizz (Terrell Suggs). We haven’t been on the field in awhile.

“Having Sizz alone is a huge impact. Now you start adding (Michael) Pierce, Lawrence Guy, Timmy (Jernigan), Zach Orr, C. J. Mosley. At the end of the day our coverage has been good as well, Dean Pees calling great schemes. It’s a just a great opportunity to come back. For the last couple of weeks I woke up and felt good. You’re never 100 percent in football, (but) that’s one thing I can do, I can play with pain.”

Ravens left side of offensive line banged up with Mack coming to town

Ravens left side of offensive line banged up with Mack coming to town

OWINGS MILLS - One of the NFL’s best pass rushers will face the Ravens on Sunday, and the left side of their offensive line is banged up.

Both left tackle Ronnie Stanley (foot) and left guard Alex Lewis (concussion) missed Thursday’s practice, leaving their availability for Sunday’s game against the Raiders in doubt. Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack who had 15 sacks last season, has established himself as premier pass rusher during his young career. Mack does not have a sack yet this season, but he is capable of getting them in bunches. If neither Stanley nor Lewis can go on Sunday, the Ravens’ offensive line could be particularly vulnerable to a Mack attack.

James Hurst would likely start in place of Stanley at left tackle, with either Ryan Jensen or John Urschel starting at left guard if Lewis doesn’t play. Jensen took Moore’s place at left guard in Week 3 after Lewis left the game with his concussion.

The Raiders (2-1) could look to bring pressure on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco’s blindside if they sense the offensive line is vulnerable. During a conference call Wednesday, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Mack was still playing at a high level, despite the absence of sacks.

“He’s a good football player, doing a nice job,” Del Rio said. “I think Khalil, as we go through the year, will do what Khalil does, which is disrupt offenses.”

The Ravens hope Mack won’t disrupt them on Sunday.
