Ravens Activate Guard Ben Cleveland and Place Edge Pernell McPhee on IR

The Ravens made several roster moves Saturday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, fortifying their offensive line and placing a veteran defensive player on injured reserve.

Rookie guard Ben Cleveland (knee) was activated to the 53-man roster from injured reserve, while veteran outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) was placed on injured reserve, meaning he will miss a minimum of three games.

Cleveland was playing regularly at left guard earlier this season before he was carted off the field Oct. 11. A third-round pick from Georgia with a physical style, Cleveland played a second-high 34 snaps Week 4 and competed for the starting job during training camp. He was sharing the job with Ben Powers before his injury.
