Flacco, Rice, Dumervil all active for Ravens


The Ravens had three key players listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report and all three are going to be on the field against the Patriots.

Quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Ray Rice and linebacker Elvis Dumervil are all active for the game, which is huge for Baltimore’s hopes of making the playoffs. They close with the Bengals in Week 17 and the Dolphins are losing in the fourth quarter of their game, leaving the door open for the Ravens if they can knock off the Pats.

As expected, wide receiver Aaron Dobson is in the lineup for the Patriots after missing three games with a foot injury. Linebacker Dane Fletcher was on the wrong side of a game-time decision because of a groin injury, though. The rest of the Patriots inactives are wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins, tackle Nate Solder, wide receiver Josh Boyce, defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga, tight end D.J. Williams and defensive end Jake Bequette.

Tight end Dallas Clark, cornerback Asa Jackson, safety Omar Brown, linebacker Albert McClellan, center Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and defensive tackle Brandon Williams are inactive for Baltimore.
