OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Moving a day closer to Sunday’s meeting with the New York Jets in Baltimore, the Ravens were again without Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata on Thursday.
Ngata hasn’t practiced in nearly two weeks as he continues to recover from a left knee injury sustained against the Cincinnati Bengals on Nov. 10. The defensive lineman missed his first game of the season last Sunday in Chicago and appears to be a question mark once again as the Ravens try to remain afloat in the AFC playoff race.
Coach John Harbaugh has declined to answer questions regarding Ngata’s status as the Ravens used a combination of Terrence Cody, DeAngelo Tyson, and rookie Brandon Williams at the nose tackle position against the Bears in Week 11. With Ngata’s absence leaving a major void in the middle of the defensive line, the Bears were able to rush for 104 yards in the 23-20 overtime victory at Soldier Field.
All other players were accounted for at practice as linebacker Daryl Smith (thigh) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (abs) were limited participants for the second straight day. Wide receivers Marlon Brown (knee) and Brandon Stokley (thigh) practiced fully.
Tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) was practicing for the second straight day, but the Ravens do not have to include him on the injury report since he remains on injured reserve with the designation to return.
Coach John Harbaugh moved up the start of Thursday’s practice to allow players to finish their workday earlier to get some extra rest. The Ravens have a quick turnaround for next week’s game as they will play Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving night, roughly 100 hours after the conclusion of Sunday’s contest against the Jets.
Meanwhile, the Jets downgraded the status of tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) as he sat out practice a day after working on a limited basis. Linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee) and wide receiver David Nelson (illness) also missed practice while wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring) was limited after failing to practice on Wednesday.
Here is Thursday’s injury report:
BALTIMORE
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: DT Haloti Ngata (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: LB Daryl Smith (thigh), CB Lardarius Webb (Abs)
FULL PARTICIPATION: WR Marlon Brown (knee), WR Brandon Stokley (thigh)
NEW YORK
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: LB Garrett McIntyre (knee), WR David Nelson (illness), TE Kellen Winslow (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: WR Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring), WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow)
FULL PARTICIPATION: OL Willie Colon (calf), CB Antonio Cromartie (hip), DL Kenrick Ellis (back), QB David Garrard (knee), WR Stephen Hill (knee), WR Greg Salas (finger)
