Ravens @ Bengals Friday Injury Report and Game Status

torreynewman
As the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens prepare to meet in Week 17 for the fourth consecutive season, both squads are a bit banged up. The Ravens list five starters as questionable, while the Bengals will be without CB Terence Newman and DT Devon Still, while also listing LB Vontaze Burfict and TE Jermaine Gresham as questionable, and rookie TE Tyler Eifert as doubtful. For Ravens running back Ray Rice, it only seems fitting that he would be dealing with injuries up to the very end (should this indeed prove...

THURSDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens @ Bengals

gresham
With the Christmas holiday falling on Wednesday this week, the Ravens and Bengals made a slight adjustment to their respective practice schedules. The teams took the field to begin preparations for their Week 17 clash on Tuesday, while giving the players Wednesday off to spend with their families before getting back to it today. The team’s released “estimated” injury reports on Wednesday to comply with NFL rules. While this Sunday’s game doesn’t have nearly the ramifications that it would have if the Ravens had won (or if the Bengals had...

Ravens vs. Patriots Friday Injury Report and Game Status

patsravens
There’s a heat wave rolling through Baltimore as the Ravens and Patriots prepare to meet on Sunday. After playing in bitter cold temperatures on Thanksgiving night against Pittsburgh, then in a whiteout snowstorm against the Minnesota Vikings, the Ravens must feel like the calendar is going backwards after playing in a dome on Monday night and now with temperatures Sunday expected to be near 70 degrees. However, it wouldn’t be a Ravens game without some potential weather issues. Though the mercury in the thermometer will be reaching levels it hasn’t...

THURSDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Patriots

NFL: Houston Texans at New England Patriots
After reporting yesterday that Joe Flacco did not have an MRI on his injured left knee, ESPN later in the evening reported that the Ravens quarterback DID in fact undergo the testing. Per Adam Schefter, the MRI on Flacco’s left knee – which was injured on Monday night when Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy fell on it – revealed a mild MCL sprain. Jamison Hensley and others brought up that Flacco actually suffered this same injury to the same knee while in college at the University of Delaware. Flacco practiced in...

WEDNESDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Patriots

Brady Flacco 600
Not even 48 hours removed from their thrilling last-minute win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, the Ravens returned to the practice field today to begin preparations for the New England Patriots. The Ravens have gotten the better of the Pats the last two times these squads have met, besting them at M&T Bank Stadium in Week 3 of 2012 (on, hey, look at that, ANOTHER Justin Tucker game-winning field goal), and of course again in the 2012 AFC Championship game in Foxborough. One name that Ravens fans...

Ravens @ Lions Saturday Injury Report & Game Status

houston
The Ravens and Lions had their final practices for their Monday night clash on Saturday, and while the Ravens look to be quite healthy, Detroit has some injury concerns. Listed as doubtful for Mt. St. Joe grad Jim Schwartz’s squad are cornerbacks Chris Houston and Darius Slay, two of the top three on the depth chart at the position. So that’s the good news for Ravens fans. The bad news? Those two are also Detroit’s lowest-graded defenders over the entire season, per Pro Football Focus. Still, it’s not unfair to...

FRIDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens @ Lions

doomsuggssack
The Ravens got some good news on Friday, as Elvis Dumervil returned to the practice field for the first time in over two weeks (Doom hadn’t practiced since prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Thanksgiving night). Dumervil was listed as a limited participant in practice, but the fact that he was out there at all should give Ravens fans some hope that he’ll be able to lace them up on Monday night in Detroit. The Ravens defense, which had been at the top of the league in sacks (and...

THURSDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens @ Lions

reggiebush
As the Ravens prepare to take on the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Monday Night Football, they returned to the practice field on Thursday for the first time since their epic back-and-forth win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. After the insanity of the final two minutes that day, you can bet that the players were thankful for the extra day of rest. The only player missing from action in Owings Mills today was linebacker Elvis Dumervil. Dumervil did not practice at all last week, and sat out Sunday...

Ravens vs. Vikings Friday Injury Report and Game Status

Dennis Pitta
The Ravens could be without their best pass rusher when the Minnesota Vikings come to town Sunday, as Elvis Dumervil missed practice for the third straight day, and is officially listed as doubtful for the game. There is certainly an argument to be made that, if Doom needs to miss a game to heal up, this is the one to miss. In other “will he or won’t he” news, Ravens fans are once again eager to see if #88 steps on the field for the first time since the Super...

THURSDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Vikings

Picture 3
Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback Christian Ponder suffered a concussion in the team’s overtime loss to Chicago last week, and was replaced by backup Matt Cassel. It looks like the former Kansas City Chief will also be lining up under center this week when the Vikings visit Charm City. Cassel has started two games in his career against the Ravens, both while a member of the Chiefs. The first was the 2010 Wild Card playoff, a game in which the Ravens battered Cassel to the tune of 9/18 for 70 yards,...

WEDNESDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Vikings

ad
As the Ravens and Vikings prepare to meet for the first time since 2009 on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, both teams are coming off tight wins. The Ravens, of course, held off a furious late rally from Pittsburgh to win 22-20 on Thanksgiving night, while the Vikings came back to force overtime at home against the Chicago Bears, ultimately winning on Blair Walsh’s second game-winning field goal attempt of the extra frame. We all remember that game in 2009 at the Metrodome, right? Brett Favre threw three TD passes...

Ravens vs. Steelers Wednesday Injury Report and Game Status

flaccowoodley
Both the Ravens and Steelers got their final walkthrough/practice sessions in early on Wednesday, trying to give themselves the most possible time to rest up after having just played on Sunday afternoon. The time from now up until tomorrow evening when most of America is in a tryptophan coma will be spent preparing mentally, rather than physically, for a game that could ultimately decide which – if either – of these two teams heads to the postseason in 2013. There was a surprise absence from Steelers practice today, as LaMarr...

TUESDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Steelers

ricekeisel
With just over 48 hours before the Ravens and Steelers kick it off on Thanksgiving night, both teams look to be quite healthy. Per ESPN, Pittsburgh looks set to get back two defensive veterans, lineman Brett Keisel and linebacker LaMarr Woodley. Both have missed the Steelers’ last two games, but have been practicing this week in advance of the AFC North clash with Baltimore. In Owings Mills today, the chatter wasn’t about injuries, but about Joe Flacco’s comments on the “wildcat” offense. Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports that the Super...

MONDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Steelers

Baltimore Ravens v Pittsburgh Steelers
The Ravens had a light walk-through practice on Monday in advance of their clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thanksgiving night at M&T Bank Stadium. With both squads having played yesterday, there wasn’t much to do physically today. While the Ravens had a walk-through, reports out of Pittsburgh are that the Steelers didn’t practice at all (but still submitted an “estimated” injury report, per NFL policy). The Ravens came out of Sunday’s win over the New York Jets looking quite healthy, as the only real injury concern is backup safety...

Ravens vs. Jets Friday Injury Report and Game Status

stokley
The Ravens got some good news on Friday, as defensive lineman Haloti Ngata returned to practice. It was the first time in two weeks that Ngata practiced in Owings Mills. The Ravens list the big man as questionable for Sunday’s game; as he practiced on Friday, he’ll likely be a game time decision, but the thought here is that he plays. They’ll need him, as Jets running back Chris Ivory does good work running between the tackles – something that is notably more difficult to accomplish when #92 is in...

THURSDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Jets

holmesjets
As the Ravens and Jets prepare to meet on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, the Ravens had no changes to their injury report between Wednesday and Thursday. Which is to say, unfortunately, that starting defensive tackle Haloti Ngata once again did not take part in practice. Marlon Brown practiced fully once again, so Ravens fans should be hopeful that the surprising rookie will be back on the field Sunday to, hopefully, help the Ravens carve up the Jets’ 23rd-ranked pass defense. For the Jets, TE Kellen Winslow was...

WEDNESDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens vs. Jets

ngatasanchez
The big news around Baltimore Wednesday was that tight end Dennis Pitta returned to practice for the first time since breaking his hip in training camp last August. “It feels awesome to be able to get back and be in meetings with the guys and be able to hit the field a little bit,” Pitta told BR.com’s Garrett Downing. “I feel great. I’m going to take it slow though and make sure I can integrate myself back in, and I’m feeling good.” Ravens fans shouldn’t get too excited about any...

Ravens @ Bears Friday Injury Report and Game Status

Marlon Brown v Green Bay
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 Practice Injury Report: Ravens @ Bears

Lardarius Webb
Well, on Monday John Harbaugh didn’t sound too worried about injuries to several key defensive starters, but as the week goes on here, and those guys still aren’t practicing, Ravens fans are getting a bit uneasy. Daryl Smith left the Cincinnati game after being involved in a tackle on the Bengals’ second-to-last offensive snap. All he missed at the end was the final fourth down stop. However, he has yet to practice this week. Lardarius Webb, coming off what was arguably the best game EVER by a Ravens cornerback, hasn’t...

WEDNESDAY INJURY REPORT: Ravens @ Bears

mccown
As the Baltimore Ravens continue to try to reel in the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North, the cherry on top of the good news sundae on Sunday was that they came out of the win with no new significant injuries. “We didn’t have anything that looks to be major, injury-wise,” John Harbaugh said during his Monday press conference. That’s music to the ears of Ravens fans who saw Haloti Ngata, Daryl Smith, and Lardarius Webb all go out at various times on Sunday. Ngata had to be helped off...
