The Ravens will meet their former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak’s new team on Sunday afternoon and they’ll be doing it without defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.
Jernigan has been declared inactive for the game because of the knee injury that he suffered in the team’s third preseason game. The Ravens held out some hope that Jernigan would be able to play by listing him as doubtful on Friday, but one of the players who will be filling the spot vacated by Haloti Ngata this season will have to wait for his 2015 debut.
Third-round pick Carl Davis will get the call in place of Jernigan. The Ravens ruled wide receiver Breshad Perriman and running back Lorenzo Taliaferro on Friday and cornerback Rashaan Melvin, offensive lineman Ryan Jensen, linebacker Za’Darius Smith and defensive lineman Christo Bilikudi join them on the inactive list.
The Broncos inactive list consists of cornerback Lorenzo Doss, quarterback Trevor Siemian, cornerback Curtis Marsh, linebacker Lerentee McCray, guard Shelley Smith, tight end Mitchell Henry and defensive end Kenny Anunike.
