OWINGS MILLS, Md. — A day after four defensive starters sat out practice, the Ravens looked much better from a health standpoint on Thursday as all four returned to the practice field.
Safety Bernard Pollard (ribs), cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), linebacker Jameel McClain (knee), and defensive end Pernell McPhee (knee) were all present during the portion of practice open to the media. They were listed as non-participants on Wednesday’s injury report.
Pollard reiterated he would play on Sunday after declaring himself ready to go on Wednesday. He spent time hitting a blocking sled during the opening portion of practice and appeared ready to go.
“I’m ready to go,” Pollard said prior to Thursday’s workout. “When my mind is made up that I’m going, I’m not going to hold anything back and I will not. Nobody really cares. Once I’m in uniform, everybody expects plays to be made and they expect you to win. I’m playing; it’s going to be all good.”
McClain said before practice that his knee felt good and wasn’t concerned. He briefly left Sunday’s game with the injury before returning to action against the Eagles.
Linebacker Paul Kruger (back) and left tackle Michael Oher (ankle) were present and working after being classified as limited participants on Wednesday.
Offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf) was present for practice but was not working.
Here’s a look at Thursday’s injury report:
