(Updated: 1:45 p.m.)
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Friday’s practice looked very similar to Thursday as the Ravens failed to receive any encouraging signs from wide receiver Lee Evans or left guard Ben Grubbs in terms of practice participation.
Coach John Harbaugh essentially ruled out Evans for Sunday, citing his need to get back to practicing in order to play in games.
“I don’t see him playing in a game right now.”
Harbaugh also revealed to the media following Friday’s practice that Grubbs’ injured right toe was stepped on during practice earlier in the week, which has slowed his progress. He will be a game-time decision, according to the head coach.
Evans (left ankle) was absent from the portion of practice open to the media after missing Thursday’s practice. Despite practicing earlier in the week, it’s appearing more likely the 30-year-old wideout will miss his third straight game.
Grubbs (right toe) was seen walking on the Ravens’ indoor practice field as media exited, but he was not carrying a helmet or taped up. The offensive lineman was listed as limited on Thursday despite not wearing a helmet or appearing to take part in any drills during the open portion of practice. Veteran Andre Gurode would make his third straight start at left guard if Grubbs is unable to play.
Safety Tom Zbikowski (concussion) and cornerbacks Chris Carr (hamstring) and Jimmy Smith (ankle) were not present during the open portion of practice. Zbikowski’s status appears in doubt after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday before sitting out Thursday. Neither Carr nor Smith is expected to play against the Texans on Sunday.
Referee Gene Steratore and his crew will officiate Sunday’s game between the Ravens and Texans.
Sunday’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, a high temperature of 71 degrees, and a 0 percent chance of participation, according to Weather.com, which should make many happy after a week of rain and dreary weather.
