OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As the Ravens made final preparations for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, they received a special visitor to their Owings Mills facility as injured linebacker Ray Lewis greeted teammates and watched Friday’s practice.
Baltimore also saw three more starters return to practice as guards Marshal Yanda (knee/ankle) and Bobbie Williams (ankle) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee/shoulder) were all present for the portion of practice open to the media. All three had missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday, but it remains to be seen what their level of activity was and whether they made it through practice without any setbacks.
Safety Ed Reed (shoulder/knee) was also practicing for the second straight day as it appears there’s little question regarding his availability for Sunday’s game. He worked on a limited basis on Thursday.
Defensive end Pernell McPhee was absent for the third straight practice and now appears likely to miss his second straight game as he continues to recover from knee and thigh injuries.
As for Lewis, it remains to be seen whether he’ll address the media for the first time since suffering a torn triceps in his right arm in the Ravens’ 31-29 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 14. Coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week that Lewis isn’t expected back at the facility on a full-time basis for a while as he continues to rehab from surgery in his home state of Florida.
The 37-year-old was placed on injured reserve with the designation of potentially returning if he proves able to make a miraculous recovery in time for a postseason run.
