Even though he was taking snaps with the first team at right tackle all week, new signee Mark LeVoir will start at right guard for the Ravens Thursday night against the Washington Redskins.

In addition, rookie Jah Reid will start at right tackle, marking his second start of the preseason.

That means Michael Oher, who had been rumored to be moving to right tackle, according to recent addition Bryant McKinnie, will be protecting Joe Flacco’s blind side.

As far as the Ravens’ depth chart goes, LeVoir takes the place of Marshal Yanda, who is a regular starter but is recovering from back spasms. Reid is being promoted above Oniel Cousins.

On the defensive side of the ball, Cary Williams will start instead of Chris Carr, while Domonique Foxworth, who has been limited in practice in the past as he recovers from his knee injury, will begin with the first team.

As expected, Bryan Mattison gets the nod in place of center Matt Birk (knee).
