    Jimmy Smith now listed as starting cornerback on depth chart with Chykie Brown backing him up. Corey Graham listed as backup to Cary Williams
    Looks like Brown will be playing the slot.

    I wonder who will be #5? Asa Jackson?

    Also this: "Ravens made it official, Bobby Rainey on active roster, Lardarius Webb placed on injured reserve."

    ???? This confuses me a bit....

    Don't see what is confusing.

    They filed the paperwork to make it "official".

    What's so confusing about it. Rainey was on the practice squad so he got promoted to take Webb's place. We need 53 guys on the roster, 45 on gameday.

    Yeah.. I know it's complicated and most likely whoever gets called up would unlikely even dress on most Sundays... but I just would have assumed that someone would have been called up on the Defensive side of the ball for depth.

    It just seems odd that they would bring up a 4th RB when 2 defenders went down and you have Bynes, Hamilton, and Brown on PS. I assume one of those guys will come in to fill Ray's roster spot.

    Well, we're essentially replacing a special teamer in terms of the 53 - Smith replaces Webb, Graham or Chykie replaces Smith and since Graham or Chykie needs replacing, you can draft in anyone you want for depth on ST as your position doesn't matter. We already had a few corners - not even including Asa who was usually a healthy scratch.

    I had a feeling you were thinking that. You know Harbaugh. He loves guys that can play special teams too and Rainey fits that description.

    Didn't realize that Chykie was 6'0" about 200 pounds, that's three big CB's in the nickel package.

    They activated Suggs for the defensive side of the ball even though he probably won't be active until after the bye.

    I doubt many thought Webb would turn into the player he did when given his chance.

    That is the thing about sports, the next great player could be sitting right on your bench.

    Why are you assuming Brown will be in the slot?

    Pretty sure Graham will be in that spot.

    Just assumed Graham was mainly a special teamer, no other reason.

    Good article. Smith may be more comfortable in this role and I expect them to play more zone

    Maybe we weren't too happy with Anthony's performance at RB/Special Teams, and wanted to lock Rainey in before we lost him to somebody else. People keep saying that he's expendible because he's so similar to Ray Rice. I don't really see how that's a bad thing, Rice is pretty darn good....

    Important note about Suggs. He's allowed to practice, but he's still on the PUP. To remove him from PUP, they'll still have to cut someone
