Coming off a hard fought victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Baltimore Ravens are getting as healthy as they have been in quite some time as they begin preparations for the Green Bay Packers. While Baltimore is getting healthy, the Packers suffered a huge loss yesterday.
So you may be asking yourself , 'wait the Ravens had just three active wide receivers this past Sunday against the Dolphins, and we're getting healthy?'
Jacoby Jones will practice for a second straight week since suffering a MCL sprain in week one and the odds of him playing this week are considerably better than they were last week. The good news for Jones and the Ravens is that they can ease him back into action without having to put him in the return game right away. Tandon Doss has been doing a nice job returning punts, while Deonte Thompson has done a fabulous job on kick returns, thus Jones can work primarily as a wide receiver while he works his way back to 100%.
“That’s the question we’re asking ourselves right now,” Harbaugh said in regards to Jones status. “It probably depends on how he looks during practices. If he looks really good, we’d be willing to put him out there. But if we feel like we need to protect him, then we will.”
Marlon Brown, who was a surprise scratch from Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, is expected back at practice this week and it could be as early as Wednesday.
Kelechi Osemele, who played just one series against the Dolphins due to back spasms was doing much better Monday and his injury is not considered serious. DE Marcus Spears is still considered day-to-day with his knee injury that flared up late last week that made him a scratch for week five.
More good news out of Ravens camp is that neither Lardarius Webb, Arthur Brown or Ray Rice had any setbacks during the game against the Dolphins.
Lastly, the Packers, who will make a rare visit to M&T Bank Stadium, are dealing with a huge injury concern as several media reports, including ESPN's Adam Schefter have surfaced that LB Clay Matthews will miss about a month with a broken thumb. You would never wish harm to anyone, but without Matthews, Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense will have a better chance to keep up with the explosive offense of the Packers.
The Ravens are off today and will return to practice on Wednesday and we will have more injury updates for you as information becomes available. One thing is for sure, Baltimore seems to be getting as healthy as they have been for months, which will certainly help as they try to separate themselves from the log jam atop the AFC North.
