Shutdown Corner - NFL

Ray Lewis, Desmond Bishop, Sam Bradford lead list of late inactivesThe big news for the Baltimore Ravens is that they'll be without the services of Ray Lewis(notes) again — the team wants Lewis to take it easy with his toe injury against a Cleveland Browns team that should be beatable. For the Green Bay Packers, the linebacker news is almost equally disturbing, as Desmond Bishop(notes) (calf) will be out as well.

Bishop isn't a big name, but he's been playing exceptionally well this year, and this will affect Green Bay's coverage schemes — especially how they use Charles Woodson(notes). Being without guard Josh Sitton(notes) will make the Packers more┬ávulnerable┬áto New York's interior pass rush, as well.

In addition, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford(notes) is out with an ankle injury. Here's the full list of late inactives; thanks as always to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog for the info!
