The Ravens will again be without Elvis Dumervil (foot) Sunday against the Browns and list fellow pass rusher Za’Darius Smith as questionable.

Smith, who’s battling an ankle injury, did not practice all week. If he can’t play — or even if he’s limited — the Ravens’ other options at outside linebacker opposite Terrell Suggs will be rookies Kamalei Correa and Matt Judon.

Correa played with the starters early in the preseason but didn’t get a defensive snap last week. Judon had three preseason sacks and was credited with a quarterback hit last week.

“Whatever opportunities they get, we’ll be expecting them to make the most of it,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

Smith had 5.5 sacks as a rookie last season. He played in 15 games, mostly as a pass rusher early in the season.

On the other side, the Browns list rookies Emmanuel Ogbah and Joe Schobert as starters at outside linebacker.

    Hope he plays, however I can’t pike my interest for Matt Judon. I’d love to see how he does as a starter.

    Yes, that is his name. Make sure you remember it. You will be hearing it a lot as the season rolls on.
