Jefferson (ankle) will play Thursday against the Dolphins.
Jefferson was limited in practice the majority of the week due to an ankle injury but will suit up for the contest. His backup, Anthony Levine, will also play after initially being ruled questionable for the game. Strong safety will definitely be an area to keep an eye on, given that neither player is likely 100 percent.
Jefferson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.
After being limited in practice Monday and Tuesday, Jefferson turned around and logged a full session Wednesday, suggesting he should be good to go. In the event the Ravens hold him out, Anthony Levine would likely draw the start at strong safety.
Jefferson had four tackles and one sack in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Sunday marked Jefferson's first sack since the season opener and he hasn't had more than five tackles since that game, either. Jefferson has yet to record a pass defensed or an interception in 2017, but part of that could be attributed to quarterbacks looking away from him in the passing game. Still, Jefferson is well off his tackle pace from 2016, when he racked up 96 tackles in 15 games.
Jefferson had a team-high nine tackles, including one sack, in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Jefferson was an elite IDP option in the secondary with the Cardinals last season and he picked right up where he left off in his Baltimore debut Sunday. He was all over the field Sunday and was one of four different Ravens to register a sack. Jefferson should continue to be a reliable source of tackles from the strong safety position, making him a strong IDP option once again in 2017.
Jefferson (groin) started Sunday's preseason opener against the Redskins.
He underwent hernia surgery in the latter portion of June, so the team has been easing him along slowly in training camp. Though he only logged nine snaps Sunday, Jefferson's participation suggests that he's fully recovered from the procedure. The 25-year-old is projected to serve as the team's starting strong safety this season.
