The Baltimore Ravens got back to work on Wednesday as they prepare for their week five matchup against the Miami Dolphins and saw both Jacoby Jones and Arthur Brown return to the practice field. Unfortunately for Baltimore there were also several players that did not participate in practice.
It was the first time Jacoby was on the practice field since suffering a MCL sprain in the season opener against the Broncos. Although he was on the field, it was still as a limited participant as the Ravens do not want to rush Jones back, they are going to need him at full strength, and more importantly full speed when he returns to game action.
Jones' status for Sunday's game is still uncertain, but getting him back would be a great shot in the arm for the struggling Ravens offense.
“Having more guys available is going to impact everybody’s number of snaps,” said coach John Harbaugh when asked how Jones’ return might affect the playing time of rookie Marlon Brown and other younger receivers. “Hopefully, we can use all those guys in really positive ways and improve our offense."
Brandon Stokley also got back on the practice field after missing last week's game with a groin strain, but fellow wide receivers Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Deonte Thompson (concussion) did not practice yesterday. Harbaugh did provide a fairly worry free report on those guys and both seem to be in line to play this week as long as they can get in some practice time this week.
Cornerback Lardarius Webb (hamstring), linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrence Cody (knee), and offensive lineman Ryan Jensen (foot) did not participate in Wednesday’s practice either for the Ravens.
Here is the complete Ravens injury report for Wednesday:
- DID NOT PARTICIPATE: WR Marlon Brown (thigh), DT Terrence Cody (knee), C Ryan Jensen (foot), LB Albert McClellan (shoulder), WR Deonte Thompson (head), CB Lardarius Webb (thigh)
- LIMITED PARTICIPATION: WR Brandon Stokley (thigh), LB Arthur Brown (shoulder), RB Shaun Draughn (ankle), WR Jacoby Jones (knee)
The fact that Stokley and Jones were back on the practice field is a good sign for this Ravens offense and with Harbaugh not seeming too worried about the status of Brown and Thompson, Baltimore's offense could actually be getting close to having all of its' weapons.
