The Ravens have eight key absences as they kick off practice for their Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
These players did not participate in Wednesday's practice:
- OLB Jadeveon Clowney (illness)
- RB Justice Hill (foot)
- CB Marlon Humphrey (foot)
- WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle)
- OLB Odafe Oweh (ankle)
- C Tyler Linderbaum (ankle)
- LT Ronnie Stanley (knee)
- S Marcus Williams (pectoral)
Wide receiver/returner Devin Duvernay was also limited due to a shoulder issue.
Hill got the start and lion's share of snaps in the backfield. He rushed for 41 yards and caught three passes. The Ravens added more depth to the roster by signing veteran Kenyan Drake to the practice squad.
Head Coach John Harbaugh said it's not long-term injuries for Beckham or Oweh, though he declined to offer specifics.
Humphrey has been out for more than a month after getting foot surgery and needs at least some practice time to ramp up before he plays.
Stanley and Linderbaum are week-to-week after suffering their injuries in Week 1. Veterans Patrick Mekari and Sam Mustipher stepped in quite well for them in the Week 2 win over the Bengals.
While Williams isn't having surgery and won't go on injured reserve, there's a “vague timeframe” for his return, Harbaugh said Monday.
