Powers is listed as inactive for Week 2's matchup against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Powers was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday, but it doesn't appear he's quite ready to make his season debut just yet. In his absence, look for Tavon Young to see extra snaps, particularly in nickel packages.

Powers (ankle) is questionable for the Ravens' Week 2 tilt against the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though he's officially listed as questionable it would be surprising if Powers didn't play on Sunday after he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. In the event he's held out, look for Tavon Young to see an increase in snaps.

Powers (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Powers has been slowed down by an ankle issue, forcing him to miss the Ravens' season opener against the Bills as well. If he's able to put together a few solid practices this week, he could be ready to see his first regular season action of the 2016 campaign on Sunday against the Browns. Barring any setbacks, he'll battle with Tavon Young for the starting spot at nickelback in the secondary.

Powers (ankle) will miss Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Powers originally had the inside track for the starting slot corner role in Baltimore defense, but has since been hindered by health issues. The slot corner will now likely be occupied by Tavon Young, and there are no real assurances that Powers will have a chance to gain the position back, especially if Young does a sufficient job in the slot.

Powers (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powers is expected to open the season as Baltimore's nickelback, but he could face immediate pressure from Will Davis and rookie Tavon Young. A Week 1 absence might allow one of the aforementioned players to seize the job for good.

Powers didn't pass a conditioning test Thursday and won't be able to practice until he does so, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powers was one of three Ravens to fail said test -- also, wideouts Mike Wallace and Dobson Collins -- but once cleared, he appears to be the No. 1 choice to handle slot corner duties with his new organization.

Powers has the inside track for the slot corner role, The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powers impressed teammates during OTAs and minicamp, reportedly showing a knack for interceptions, of which he has just 11 in 87 career regular-season games (82 starts). Although he was known as the weak link in Arizona's secondary the past few years, Powers should actually represent an upgrade for a Baltimore team that has struggled with poor cornerback play for the last half-decade. Though he only signed a one-year contract, Powers could even push Shareece Wright for a starting job on the outside across from Jimmy Smith (foot). In such a scenario, Powers might still shift inside in nickel and dime packages, which could make him an interesting IDP option in leagues that use specific positions. It's still speculative at this point, as Wright will enter training camp as the favorite to start.
