Lamar Jackson is still a side against the Falcons

Marcus Peters (calf) and defensive tackle Calais Campbell (knee) were also ruled out after leaving last week’s game in Cleveland with injuries. Don’t exercise all week.

Defensive coordinator Mike McDonald said Wednesday he feels confident running into Brandon Stephens in place of Peters.

“He gets out there and competes. There are some situations where he’s going to win some, lose some, but the guy is out there, and he’s fighting, he knows what he’s doing, he’s very conscientious,” McDonald said. “We expect him to get out there and not miss a moment.”

On the defensive line, the Ravens will need more across the defensive line from Justin Madubueki, Travis Jones, Broderick Washington and Brent Urban. Urban is Campbell’s backup on the depth chart.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (his ankle) didn’t practice Tuesday or Thursday but he came into the game uninjured, so he should be fine.

Harbaugh said the Ravens “plan to play” wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who was claimed off waivers this week. Watkins already has a familiarity with the plan and the rulebook from his time with Baltimore last season.

Hawks enter the game in better health than Crows. They only ruled out backup offensive tackle Chuma Edoga (knee).
