OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Looking at their most favorable injury report in several weeks, the Ravens still must feel uneasy about their cornerback situation as the Houston Texans comes to Baltimore on Sunday.
Jimmy Smith and Chris Carr did not practice while six other previously-injured players returned to practice in a limited fashion on the first official practice since the bye week. Smith will not play on Sunday as he was seen walking back and forth across the width of the side field on Wednesday in a level of activity not indicative of a player whose return is imminent.

Carr, on the other hand, would not reveal any specifics of the setback he suffered late in the week leading up to the Jets game on Oct. 2, only saying he wouldn’t return to action until he was 100 percent. The veteran cornerback had labeled himself at roughly 90 percent when he returned to play against the St. Louis Rams in Week 3. Carr has dealt with the same left hamstring injury since the middle of August despite several different attempts to return to the field.
With key offensive starters Lee Evans and Ben Grubbs practicing on a limited basis, a far better indication for predicting their status on Sunday will be whether their participation level increases on Thursday and Friday.
