Who's on the roster bubble for Ravens

8/27/2014

Let's take a look at where all 75 players stand with the Baltimore Ravens heading into Thursday night's preseason finale.

By my projection, there are 45 players who have made the 53-man roster. I have 14 players on the bubble competing for the last eight spots. There are 13 players who are considered long shots.

Remember, running back Ray Rice and safety Will Hill won't count against the 53-man roster because they'll be on the suspended list. Also, nose tackle Terrence Cody is on the physically unable to perform list, which means he'll only count against the 53-man roster if he is activated.

For the players on the bubble, I designated who is the favorite at this point.
