Ravens without five Pro Bowl players against Giants

(header)
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Baltimore Ravens' inactives list against the New York Giants includes five Pro Bowl players and the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft.

The Ravens will be without wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. (ankle), outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot), inside linebacker C.J. Mosley (hamstring), guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder) and returner Devin Hester (thigh) -- who have combined for 20 Pro Bowl appearances. Baltimore will also be missing left tackle Ronnie Stanley (foot), the first offensive lineman taken in this year's draft.

It's a significant loss considering that Smith is the Ravens' top receiver, Mosley is their best defensive playmaker, Yanda and Stanley are their top offensive linemen, Dumervil is their sacks leader the previous two seasons, and Hester is perhaps the most explosive returner in NFL history.

The Ravens (3-2) are trying to end a two-game losing streak after a 3-0 start. This is their most extensive injury report of the season.
