Six starters to miss Ravens game

The Washington Redskins will be without six of their usual starters as they take on the Baltimore Ravens in their third preseason game.

Cornerback Josh Wilson, strong safety LaRon Landry and inside linebacker London Fletcher all will miss the game with hamstring injuries. Defensive end Adam Carriker will miss a second game with blisters on his heels, running back Ryan Torain remains sidelined as his broken left hand heals, and tight end Chris Cooley continues to nurse a knee injury.

Also out for this game are safety Kareem Moore (knee), and receivers Brandon Banks (knee) and Malcolm Kelly (foot).

Fletcher and Wilson both practiced this week after missing last week’s game. The others sat out this week’s practices.

Starting at right cornerback instead of Wilson will be Byron Westbrook. Last week, Kevin Barnes started in place of Wilson, and Westbrook served as the third nickel corner. It appears those roles will be swapped this week.

Keyaron Fox again will start in place of Fletcher, and rookie defensive end Jarvis Jenkins gets his second start in place of Carriker
