Ravens presumably down to two moves

The Baltimore Ravens presumably need to make two more moves to get down to the league-mandated 53-player limit by 4 p.m. ET Saturday.

When the Ravens took the field Saturday, there were 55 players practicing (not including suspended players Ray Rice and Will Hill).

The Ravens already announced five cuts: TE Nathan Overbay, OLB D.J. Roberts, C Reggie Stephens, and DTs Levi Brown and Derrick Hopkins.

There were 12 others not on the field: QB Keith Wenning, G A.Q. Shipley, LB John Simon, OT Ryan Jensen, WR Jeremy Butler, RB Fitzgerald Toussaint, CB Tremain Jacobs, CB Sammy Seamster, TE Phillip Supernaw, DT A.J. Pataiali'i, OT Parker Graham and DT Jamie Meder.

Including those 17 players, Rice and Hill will be placed on the suspended list Saturday afternoon. Backup nose tackle Terrence Cody (hip) is also expected to start the season on the physically unable to perform list.

That would bring the Ravens' roster down to 55 players. It's surprising that linebacker Zach Orr and offensive tackle James Hurst are still with the team. But the Ravens may be holding onto someone like Orr as insurance because they could trade a linebacker before rosters need to be finalized by 4 p.m.
