The Baltimore Ravens will be lacking depth at the cornerback position on Sunday when they face the San Diego Chargers. Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Chris Johnson lead the list of inactive players for the game at Qualcomm Stadium.
Offensive linemen Bobbie Williams and Ramon Harewood are also on the inactive list for Baltimore. They are joined by wide receiver Deonte Thompson, defensive tackle Bryan Hall and defensive end Pernell McPhee. McPhee hasn't played since the Oct. 21 game against the Houston Texans.
Royal has 16 receptions for 134 yards this season, while Brinkley has carried the ball 29 times for 60 yards as a backup at running back. Meanwhile, San Diego will shift the offensive line to include undrafted rookie Mike Harris at left tackle and Rex Hadnot at left guard.
