Jimmy Clausen starts for Ravens; Matt Schaub out


Jimmy Clausen will make his second start this season against the Seattle Seahawks.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Clausen will start Sunday for the Baltimore Ravens with Matt Schaub battling a chest injury.

Schaub was officially ruled out Sunday after being listed questionable on Friday. Bryn Benner is set to back up Clausen.

While with the Chicago Bears earlier this season, Clausen completed 9 of 17 passes for just 63 yards in a Week 3 start versus the Seahawks, in Seattle.

With a depleted receiving corps and Clausen under center, expect Javorius Allen to carry a heavy load for the Ravens versus a stout Seahawks defensive front, ranked third in the NFL in rush yards per game allowed (87.8).
