Just like last week, the Ravens got a bit of good news on the injury front on Friday, as a few defensive starters who did not practice earlier in the week all returned to practice. Last week it was Daryl Smith, Terrell Suggs, and Jimmy Smith, while this week Lardarius Webb joined D.Smith in missing Wednesday and Thursday but practicing on Friday. Haloti Ngata did not practice at all this week.
All three players are listed as questionable for Sunday.
In addition, Terrell Suggs, who was banged up a bit during Thursday’s practice and as a result only participated on a limited basis, practiced fully on Friday. He’s listed as probable.
One new addition on Friday was WR Marlon Brown. Brown was not on the injury report Wednesday or Thursday, but appeared Friday as a “Did Not Participate” due to a knee issue. Brown is listed as questionable.
As for the Bears, in addition to being without starting quarterback Jay Cutler, defensive tackle Henry Melton (IR), and starting cornerback Charles Tillman (IR), the Bears’ top receiving tight end, Martellus Bennett, is listed as questionable after returning to practice on Friday for the first time all week.
