Ray Rice, not Willis McGahee, started for the Ravens in their game against Houston. Also, Daunte Culpepper got the start for the Lions. He threw an interception in his first offensive series.
Tyler Thigpen just scored on a 37-yard pass from Mark Bradley. Thigpen lined up as a wide receiver and hauled in the pass from Bradley on a trick play. The Coastal Carolina product now has two scores in the first half in what is becoming a blowout over the Buccaneers. Unreal.
In a move that was rumored this week, Tim Hightower got the start ahead of Edgerrin James. The rookie is a great fantasy sleeper against the Rams. Ray Rice started ahead of Willis McGahee, but these two backs are expected to share carries against the Browns. Le’Ron McClain will also see some work out of the backfield.
Browns: WR Donte’ Stallworth, FB Lawrence Vickers, LB Beau Bell, TE Martin Rucker, G Scott Young, S Hamza Abdullah and QB Ken Dorsey (3rd).

It’s more than just good news for the Baltimore Ravens that RB Willis McGahee took part in a full practice on Thursday.

NFL Network’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Willis McGahee (chest, questionable) will be active against Tennessee. A Ravens official e-mailed Schefter and said it looks like McGahee will even start. This is a bad matchup for the veteran, but he’ll still be active in countless fantasy leagues. Just don’t expect much in terms of statistical success.
The Ravens listed running back Willis McGahee as questionable with a chest injury. But moments ago, a Ravens official emailed that McGahee is a go, and it even looks like he will start. So the Ravens will have one more weapon in their battle against a tough Titans defense.
Ravens RB Willis McGahee missed most of the second half against Pittsburgh with a chest injury.
A good friend of mine, Anita Marks from 1300 ESPN Radio in Baltimore, is friends with Brian Westbrook.
He sent her a text this morning and said he will be “careful” tonight. That indicates he’ll play (although that’s not in stone), but it doesn’t mean he’ll start. Those decisions are made by coach Andy Reid and the trainers.
