Fletcher, Williams, Hall Active, Banks Inactive

Posted Dec 9, 2012

Questionable Redskins London Fletcher, DeAngelo Hall and Trent Williams will all be active and start today. Returner Brandon Banks is listed as a healthy scratch.

The streak continues this afternoon, as Redskins linebacker London Fletcher suits up for his 237th  consecutive game, the NFL's longest streak.

He will be joined by fellow defender DeAngelo Hall, who shakes off ankle and knee injuries to make the start. 

Offensive tackle Trent Williams retains the team's continuity at offensive line, working through a painful thigh bruise suffered on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. With his ability to go, the team has made rookie tackle Tom Compton inactive after signing him to the active roster on Wednesday.

The most notable inactive for the Redskins is return man Brandon Banks, who will be held out on coach's decision.  Banks has struggled in recent weeks, most notably returning a punt seven yards from the end zone, and being usurped by tight end Niles Paul on a return last week.

This decision opens the door for the Redskins to assess other options at returner, including Paul, Santana Moss and Aldrick Robinson.

Here is the full list of Redskins' inactives:

On the Ravens' sideline, several key defenders will be held out this week due to injury.

All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis is still one week away from returning from a triceps tear that landed him on injured reserve.

Reigning NFL defensive player of the year Terrell Suggs will be inactive today after being taken out of last week's game with a biceps tear.  He was listed as questionable to play, but will be unable to go this afternoon.

Top tight end Ed Dickson is inactive for the second-straight week, leaving Dennis Pitta as the Ravens' starter.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith returned to practice this week following groin and abdominal injuries, but will also be inactive, leaving Corey Graham as the starter.

Here is the full list of Ravens' inactives:

  • No. 22 CB Jimmy Smith
  • No. 55 LB Terrell Suggs
  • No. 59 LB Dannell Ellerbe
  • No. 70 G/T Ramon Harewood
  • No. 83 WR/RS Deonte Thompson
  • No. 84 TE Ed Dickson
  • No. 95 DT Bryan Hall

Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is expected to start in place of Ellerbe at inside linebacker. Linebacker Courtney Upshaw is expected to start in place of Suggs at outside linebacker.
