The Ravens are giving wide receiver Lee Evans another week off.

Evans practiced on a limited basis all week, but has been ruled out to face the Seahawks today at CenturyLink Field.

The veteran speedster has been out since Week 2 with his ankle injury. While he saw his most progress this week, Head Coach John Harbaugh said there was still more time needed.

“We’re still working through it,” Harbaugh said on Friday. “If we had a situation where we needed him, he could go.”

The Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals in a key divisional game next Sunday, and it will be interesting to see if Baltimore adds to his workload throughout the week.

There aren’t any other surprises for the Ravens or Seahawks.

As expected, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (knee) and safety Ed Reed (shoulder) are active after missing one practice on Thursday.

Inside linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (head) is active, meaning he passed his concussion test on Saturday. He was questionable to play.

The Ravens’ injury inactives are Evans, running back Anthony Allen (thigh) and inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (thigh). Their healthy scratches are wide receiver Tandon Doss, cornerback Chykie Brown, guard/center Bryan Mattison and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle.

The Seahawks’ inactives are all backups. They are quarterback Josh Portis, wide receiver Deon Butler, strong safety Jeron Johnson, cornerback Ron Parker, linebacker David Vobora, tackle Jarriel King and tight end Cameron Morrah.
