As the Ravens get ready to take on the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, a few names that some Ravens fans may have forgotten have been popping up.
First, on Wednesday Coach Harbaugh announced that Kapron Lewis-Moore would return to practice. Though the 2013 sixth-round draft pick remains on the Non-Football Injury List (he tore his ACL while playing for Notre Dame in the BCS Title Game in January), he is finally set to step on the field as a Raven. The Ravens have three weeks to decide whether to place the defensive end on the active roster or wait until next year.
While Lewis-Moore won’t be helping the Ravens this Sunday (if at all in 2013), one guy who could is cornerback Asa Jackson. Jackson was suspended for the first eight games after violating the league’s PED policy for the second time. Jackson looked like a solid special teams guy in the preseason, and as we know from their roster moves last week, the team is certainly still looking for help in that area. Per Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the team will be evaluating Jackson’s conditioning level at practice this week in order to decide if he should be in their plans against the Bengals or not.
Speaking of practice, here are the injury reports for the Ravens and Bengals for Thursday’s practice sessions. One ominous addition for Baltimore is linebacker Terrell Suggs.
