Linebacker Dumervil, running back Bush active for Ravens-Lions

Two key players whose status was questionable entering tonight’s contest will be active and in uniform: Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil and Lions running back Reggie Bush.

Dumervil, who leads Baltimore with 9.5 sacks, returns to action after missing last week’s game with a sprained ankle. Bush is back for Detroit after sitting out last week with a calf injury.

Tight end Dallas Clark is also active after being a healthy scratch last Sunday.

The Ravens deactivated the usual suspects for the primetime affair - safety Brynden Trawick, safety Omar Brown, running back Bernard Scott, center Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Deonte Thompson, linebacker John Simon and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

The Lions will be without cornerbacks Chris Houston (toe) and Darius Slay (knee), leaving them shorthanded in the secondary. Quarterback Kellen Moore, tailback Mikel Leshoure, guard Rodney Austin, guard Leroy Harris and tackle Jason Fox are also inactive for Detroit.

Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder), the Lions’ sacks leader with seven, will play after being listed as questionable.
