Haloti Ngata Playing Through Injury

Posted Nov 5, 2012

Guards Marshal Yanda and Bobbie Williams suffered minor ankle injuries.


Ravens Pro Bowl tackle Haloti Ngata continues to play through shoulder pain.

And it seems to be the reason why Ngata hasn’t been flashing on the field recently.

Ngata played 56 of the defense’s 72 snaps Sunday against the Browns. That’s more than two weeks ago in Houston when he was in for 48 of 80 snaps.

But he recorded just two tackles in Houston. He had none in Cleveland, marking the first time he’s been shut out since Week 14 last year against Indianapolis.

“I thought he played solidly,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s not 100 percent. He’s got the shoulder. He’s playing his way through it.”

Solid isn’t the word generally used for the dominant All-Pro. But Harbaugh indicated that the team doesn’t want to shut Ngata down to totally heal.

Ngata has been taking it easy during the week leading up to games. He didn’t practice on Thursday and Friday of last week and could be on a similar path this week.

“I think we’ll take it day by day and week by week,” Harbaugh said. “We have to win every game. Every game the division championship is on the line.”

The Ravens suffered a couple other minor injuries to a pair of guards on Sunday.

Pro Bowler Marshal Yanda “tweaked” his knee and ankle. He missed just five plays and was momentarily replaced by Jah Reid.

“He’s moving around,” Harbaugh said of Yanda. “The MRI’s are all positive, nothing there.”

Veteran Bobbie Williams, who has started the past three games, also suffered an ankle injury and an MRI showed a sprain. Williams didn’t miss any plays and was the offensive line’s most effective blocker, according to Pro Football Focus.

“We’ll probably give him some rest during the week some time and try to get him to Sunday,” Harbaugh said.

If Reid is called into action Sunday against Oakland, he will finally have some game experience under his belt. Harbaugh said he was happy with the way Reid played in his 10 snaps Sunday.

“It was the first time he’s really taken any extended time out there and he wasn’t overwhelmed at all,” Harbaugh said. “That’s what you look for in a young guy.”
