The Baltimore Ravens are pretty healthy as they head into their matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday in what is essentially a must win in order for Baltimore to realistically keep their playoff hopes alive. DL Kapron Lewis-Moore practices for the first time since being drafted by the Ravens this April.
Before we get into who did not practice yesterday, we want to touch on Lewis-Moore as it was great to see him on the practice field for the first time since tearing his ACL in the BCS National Championship game last season while playing with Notre Dame. Kapron was drafted in the sixth round and the Ravens knew Lewis-Moore would not play or practice for quite some time. He has spent all season on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP) and finally was able to practice yesterday.
"FELT GOOD TO BE BACK ON THE FIELD TODAY!!! Little rusty but knee feels great," Lewis-Moore said on his official Twitter account (@KLM_89) yesterday.
Baltimore now has three weeks before having to decide whether or not to active Lewis-Moore or place him on the season ending injury reserve list.
Now, for those guys who were not on the practice field yesterday. To no one's surprise, CB Jimmy Smith was not on the practice field yesterday as Baltimore is likely not pushing Smith's groin injury in efforts to make sure he will be able to go this Sunday.
Also coming at no surprise was the absence of Kelechi Osemele, who has already been ruled out by Head Coach John Harbaugh, and Osemele will be placed on IR at some point this week, but the Ravens are holding off until they decide whether or not to activate CB Asa Jackson who recently completed his suspension.
LB Daryl Smith and WR Brandon Stokley also did not participate yesterday. Smith was likely getting a day off as he has played every game this season and every defensive snap against the Browns last week. Stokley, who has been dealing with a groin injury most of the season and has not played in a game since week 3, continues to deal with the injury and his status is uncertain.
Baltimore Ravens Injury Report:
- Did Not Participate: LB Daryl Smith (thigh), CB Jimmy Smith (thigh), WR Brandon Stokley (thigh).
- Limited Participant: WR Marlon Brown (finger).
- Out: G Kelechi Osemele (back)
Baltimore is extremely healthy heading into week 10, but the bigger priority is to find a way to win the game this Sunday or their focus may need to be turned to 2014.
