Offensive tackles Jared Gaither and Oniel Cousins are among the nine Ravens that will not play Saturday night against the Washington Redskins.

In addition to those two tackles, safety Ed Reed, defensive back Marcus Paschal, running back Matt Lawrence, linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, and offensive linemen David Hale, Oniel Cousins, Daniel Sanders and Stefan Rodgers will not be active.

Stepping up for the short-handed tackle position is Tony Moll, while Tom Zbikowski will start for Reed.

The Redskins have only two scratches – wideouts Malcolm Kelly and Mike Furrey.

Reed was seen on the field during pre-game warmups, having just returned to the Mid-Atlantic from a stint rehabbing his hip injury with his trainers in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, the Ravens might have the services of cornerback Chris Carr, who only recently returned to full action on the practice field on Thursday.  Carr played the first few snaps last week against the Carolina Panthers before being pulled with a sore hamstring.
