OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As concern grew over Lee Evan’s injured left ankle on Wednesday, the wide receiver announced his intention to play against the Titans prior to returning to practice on Thursday.
After wearing a walking boot and not participating a day earlier, Evans arrived on the field dressed to practice and took part in drills with the other wide receivers during the portion of practice open to the media. Though unlikely to be 100 percent for the Week 2 matchup on Sunday, Evans will continue to work through the left ankle injury that’s hampered him since the third preseason game against the Washington Redskins.

Left guard Ben Grubbs was missing from practice for the second straight day and was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot. He was listed with a toe injury on Wednesday’s official injury report after dealing with a thigh issue before the season opener against Pittsburgh. Should Grubbs not be able to play on Sunday, the Ravens would likely turn to backup center Andre Gurode — who also played guard during his time with the Dallas Cowboys — or veteran lineman Mark LeVoir to take his place on the starting offensive line.
Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith (high ankle sparin) and Chris Carr were not present during the portion of practice open to the media. Smith will not play against the Titans, but Carr’s absence for a second straight day further clouds his status for Sunday. With the Ravens possibly being down two cornerbacks against Tennessee, veteran Domonique Foxworth will likely be given an increased workload as was the case against the Steelers in an emergency fashion.
“[Foxworth] is coming,” defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said. “He’s just going to get better and better, confidence wise, and the knee is going to get better each week. I expect him to keep playing at a high level.”
