The Ravens finally have some good news on the injury front.
Veteran wide receiver
Jones had not practiced since the injury, but now the Ravens could get the valuable receiving and return threat back in the lineup depending on how he responds to the practice reps.
“We’ll see how he does this week with that,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday.
The Ravens also received some positive news about cornerback
“We’ll have to carry it out through the week and see how they look,” Harbaugh said.
The other injuries from the game were linebacker
“Jimmy Smith had a glute-bruise that he fought through throughout the whole game,” Harbaugh said. “You might have seen him limping, getting on the bike during the game. I thought he played through that and played very well with that.”
Thompson suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter on a helmet-to-helmet hit from safety Jim Leonhard. Thompson held onto the 33-yard catch down the sidelines but immediately came out of the game.
He will have to be cleared for contact before returning to the field.
“He’ll go through the protocol, but he was good this morning,” Harbaugh said. “No headaches, no concussion symptoms, but he’ll go through the NFL protocol on that.”
Sunday was Thompson’s first game of the year because he had been sidelined since the preseason opener with a foot injury. The foot injury did not appear to hinder him at all during the game, and Harbaugh said “the foot came out of there very well.”
The other lingering injury question was the status of veteran receiver
“Brandon had a groin strain and we thought we’d get him to the game,” Harbaugh said. “We thought he’d be OK, but it just tightened up on him pre-game so we’ll monitor that again day-to-day this week and hopefully we’ll have him this week.”
