Outside of a miracle news report of TE Dennis Pitta all of the sudden being healthy, yesterday brought as good of news as the Ravens could have hoped for.
Jacoby Jones and Arthur Brown
Both Jones and Brown will return to the practice field this week, which is tremendous news for Baltimore. Jones, who has missed the last three games with a medial collateral ligament sprain that he suffered in Baltimore's first game, will practice for the first time since the injury. Although his status for Sunday's game is still uncertain, but the fact that he is returning to practice is a great sign.
“We’ll see how he does this week with that,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday on Jones.
Brown missed the last two games with a pectoral injury, and he too will return to the practice field this week. His status is also uncertain, but again, returning the practice is the first step to returning.
Lardarius Webb and Marlon Brown
Both Webb and Brown left Sunday's game with hamstring strains, but both are said to have "looked good" Monday morning. Neither player's injury are deemed serious, so it would be a little surprising if they cannot play on Sunday.
“We’ll have to carry it out through the week and see how they look,” Harbaugh said.
A surprise scratch for Sunday's loss to the Bills, especially since he didn't show up on the injury report until Friday with a groin strain. His status seems promising for Sunday after hearing Harbaugh's comments on the veteran wide receiver.
“Brandon had a groin strain and we thought we’d get him to the game,” Harbaugh said. “We thought he’d be OK, but it just tightened up on him pre-game so we’ll monitor that again day-to-day this week and hopefully we’ll have him this week.”
Thompson played for the first time this season against Buffalo, due to a foot injury, and looked good. Unfortunately for Baltimore he wound up suffering a concussion in the fourth quarter. The good news is that he was showing no signs of lingering effects on Monday and all he will have to do is go through the NFL concussion protocol.
“He’ll go through the protocol, but he was good this morning,” Harbaugh said. “No headaches, no concussion symptoms, but he’ll go through the NFL protocol on that.”
All in all, the injury news is extremely good for Baltimore, especially when you add the fact that neither Ray Rice nor Chris Canty did anything to re-injur themselves during the game against Buffalo.
