Ravens add a linebacker to the active roster


With a pair of linebackers listed as questionable for Sunday’s playoff game against the Texans, the Ravens have elevated a linebacker from the practice squad.

Joining the team is Josh Bynes, a 22-year-old undrafted rookie from Auburn who was cut by the Ravens in early September, signed to the practice squad in November, and elevated to the active roster for one game — the Thanksgiving night win over the 49ers.

Gone is tackle D.J. Jones, another undrafted rookie who was on the active roster for the Week 17 win over the Bengals.

The move likely means that the Ravens expect to not have either Brendan Ayanbadejo (thigh) or Jameel McClain (knee) against the Texans.  McClain started every game this season; Ayanbadejo played in each one.
