BALTIMORE — The Ravens are missing three key players for their game against the Dolphins.
Safety Kyle Hamilton (knee), guard Kevin Zeitler (knee, quad) and cornerback Brandon Stephens (ankle) have been ruled out.
Hamilton initially injured the knee in Week 14 against the Rams and then re-aggravated the injury Monday night against San Francisco.
With Stephens also out, Ronald Darby, Daryl Worley and Rock Ya-Sin could play a bigger role.
Miami has the NFL’s top passing attack, averaging 275.1 yards per game.
Zeitler has missed three games in three seasons with the Ravens.
The Ravens’ other inactive players are cornerback Damarion Williams, guard Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, and backup quarterbacks Josh Johnson and Malik Cunningham.
However, wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) is active for the game against the Dolphins. He missed two practices before returning Friday.
Cornerback and special teams player Jalyn Armour-Davis (concussion) was officially placed on injured reserve and finished the regular season with six tackles in eight games.
Miami running back Raheem Mostert is inactive because of knee and ankle injuries. Mostert leads the NFL with 18 rushing touchdowns and is fourth in the league with a career-high 1,012 rushing yards. He is tied with Christian McCaffrey for first in the NFL with 21 total touchdowns.
The Dolphins have rookie De’Von Achane (637 yards rushing) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (122 yards rushing) behind Mostert on the depth chart. The Ravens are ranked 12th in the NFL against the run, allowing 103.4 yards per game.
Miami also officially ruled out wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (1,014 yards receiving) with an ankle injury. Waddle caught 11 passes for 171 yards and two scores against Baltimore last year.
The winner of the Ravens and Dolphins will take over the No. 1 seed for the AFC playoffs.
The Dolphins can clinch the AFC East title with a victory over the Ravens or a loss Sunday by the Buffalo Bills (9-6).
