OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Hitting the practice field for the first time in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, the Ravens were without three Pro Bowl players and two other starters.
Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, safety Ed Reed, defensive end Pernell McPhee, right guard Marshal Yanda, and left guard Bobbie Williams were absent from Wednesday’s practice.
Ngata continues to deal with shoulder and knee injuries that have limited his playing time, and the three-time Pro Bowl selection failed to register a tackle in the 25-15 win over the Cleveland Browns. The seven-year veteran played at less than 100 percent after McPhee had already been ruled out in Week 9 with knee and thigh injuries, further weakening the defensive line.
Yanda and Williams both suffered injuries in Sunday’s win, but MRI results were favorable for each player. The Ravens’ Pro Bowl right guard is expected to play on Sunday, but Williams’ status will be trickier to gauge considering he’s already dealt with soreness and swelling in a surgically-repaired right ankle.
Wednesday was likely a day off for Reed, who is dealing with a torn labrum in his shoulder and a sore knee.
Meanwhile, the Raiders were without running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson as both are considered question marks for Sunday’s game. Oakland head coach Dennis Allen remained mum on their status in a conference call with the Baltimore media.
Veteran defensive tackle Richard Seymour was also a non-participant for Oakland on Wednesday.
