The 49ers and Ravens released their inactive lists for tonight's Thanksgiving battle on NFL Network. The 49ers most prominent inactive is fullback Bruce Miller. It is not a surprise that Miller won't be playing due to his concussion, but this officially confirms what we suspected. Moran Norris will get the start in his place with Justin Peelle likely operating as a backup at both fullback and tight end.
Cornerback Shawntae Spencer is a healthy scratch this week and Tramaine Brock will operate as the fourth cornerback. Chris Culliver has been dealing with a shoulder issue this week, but he is probable and will fill his normal third cornerback role.
The big news for the Ravens is that linebacker Ray Lewis is inactive and Brendon Ayanbadejo will make the start inside next to Jameel McClain. This makes things a bit more interesting on the Ravens defensive interior. Add in Lewis' athleticism in getting to runners on the corner and this is a pretty significant loss.
49ers: FB Bruce Miller, QB Scott Tolzien, NT Ian Williams, OL Mike Person, OL Daniel Kilgore, WR Brett Swain, CB Shawntae Spencer
Ravens: LB Ray Lewis, WR Tandon Doss, CB Chris Carr, LB Sergio Kindle, RB Anthony Allen, LB Dannell Ellerbe and DT Arthur Jones
