OWINGS MILLS, Md. — A day after telling reporters he was on the verge of returning to the practice field, Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil worked on a limited basis on Friday.
With Baltimore preparing for a Monday night meeting with the Detroit Lions, Dumervil was the only player on the roster to miss Thursday’s practice as he continues to work his way back from a left ankle injury suffered in Week 13. The 29-year-old missed last Sunday’s game over the Minnesota Vikings and hadn’t practiced since before the Ravens’ Thanksgiving game with Pittsburgh.
“It’s an unusual ankle sprain. It’s sort of a bruise [and] strain at once,” Dumervil said Thursday. “It’s kind of awkward, so you feel things from different areas. I’m getting better, so thank God about that. I’m going to try to go out tomorrow with the guys and get some work in. They’ve got a good team in Detroit, so I’ve got to make sure I’m ready.”
After failing to collect any sacks in their last two games, the Ravens could use Dumervil’s pass-rush ability against the league’s third-ranked passing game. Dumervil leads Baltimore with 9 1/2 sacks this season while serving primarily as a rush specialist.
Starting cornerback Lardarius Webb (abs) and rookie safety Brynden Trawick (ankle) both worked on a limited basis Friday for the second straight day.
For the Lions, standout running back Reggie Bush (calf) returned to practice on Friday, which is a promising sign for his status after he missed last Sunday’s game in Philadelphia.
Here is Friday’s official injury report:
BALTIMORE
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: LB Elvis Dumervil (ankle), S Brynden Trawick (ankle), CB Lardarius Webb (abs)
DETROIT
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: CB Chris Houston (toe), CB Darius Slay (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder), RB Reggie Bush (calf), S Louis Delmas (knee), DE Isreal Idonije (knee), WR Calvin Johnson (knee), T LaAdrian Waddle (elbow)
FULL PARTICIPATION: S John Wendling (illness)
