Defensive back has suddenly become a thin position for the Ravens, as starting cornerback Jimmy Smith also suffered a season-ending injuryearlier this month. Hill was working as Baltimore’s nickel cornerback before he went down.

They’re hoping to get wide receiver Jeremy Maclin back next weekend, who has been dealing with a knee injury of his own. Head coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco recently spoke about the adversity the Ravens have dealt with in 2017.
