NFL Note - Baltimore Ravens Humphrey, *Marlon

CB Marlon Humphrey has a minor leg injury and was limited to just seven snaps Monday against the Texans. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh did not disclose any more details, but the injury does not appear to be serious. Humphrey was the team's first-round pick in this year's draft and has emerged as a top playmaker in the secondary.

-----------------------------------------------

NFL Note - Baltimore Ravens Perriman, Breshad

WR Breshad Perriman was active Monday night against Houston after he was a healthy scratch the previous game. Perriman was the team's first-round pick in 2015, but has been mostly inconsistent.

-----------------------------------------------

NFL Note - Baltimore Ravens Campanaro, Michael

RB/KR Michael Campanaro, who ranks second in the league in punt-return average, was inactive after not appearing on the injury report last week. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed Campanaro was a healthy scratch because the team wanted to activate other receivers that can get downfield. "Nothing that 'Camp' did or didn't do. We're healthy now (at the receiver position), so we have to make some tough decisions," Harbaugh said.

-----------------------------------------------

NFL Note - Baltimore Ravens Jefferson, Tony

S Tony Jefferson has been stellar this season. However, his teammates chided him for being the only player without an interception in the secondary. That changed Monday night when he got his first interception with the Ravens in the second quarter that set up a touchdown. "It just feels so good to accomplish it in a game, especially a tight one and a must-win when we are in the race for the playoffs," said Jefferson, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason.

-----------------------------------------------

NFL Note - Baltimore Ravens Levine, Anthony

S Anthony Levine, a six-year veteran, earned the first interception of his career in the fourth quarter Monday night against the Texans. Levine has been a key player on special teams. "I'm telling you, I can't describe it," Levine said about the interception. "When I come on the field, they expect me to make my plays and I expect to make plays. That's what I'm here to do."

-----------------------------------------------

NFL Note - Washington Redskins McClain, Terrell
