Morgan Moses is back at Ravens practice days after exiting Sunday's game in Cleveland with a shoulder injury. He was a limited participant.
The veteran right tackle hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 2014 – a streak of 134 straight games with all but one as the starter.
It would be a big boost to Baltimore if Moses is able to play, especially considering the Steelers' T.J. Watt will be the player lining up over the right tackle. Watt is tied for the league lead in sacks (6.0) through four weeks and has been a headache for the Ravens over the years (12 sacks in 12 career games).
If Moses isn't able to play, the Ravens would use veteran Patrick Mekari or second-year offensive tackle Daniel Faalele at right tackle. Faalele stepped in for Moses in Cleveland. Part of that would depend on whether Ronnie Stanley (knee) is able to play after missing the past three games. Stanley said Thursday that there's a "strong possibility" he suits up versus Pittsburgh.
The only Ravens who didn't practice Thursday were outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle) and safety Daryl Worley (shoulder). After weeks of being extremely banged up, the Ravens are getting healthier.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (foot), wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle), and running back Justice Hill (foot/hamstring) were again limited. Rashod Bateman (hamstring) was a full participant, as was safety Marcus Williams (pectoral). Cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis (hamstring) went from limited Wednesday to full on Thursday.
Kenny Pickett a Full Participant, But Steelers O-Line Still Hurting
Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (knee/bone bruise) went from limited participation Wednesday to full participation Thursday. Pickett said Wednesday that he'll be ready Sunday, and Ravens Defensive Coordinator Mike Macdonald said that's who Baltimore is preparing for.
The Steelers are dealing with injuries on the offensive line, however. Left tackle Dan Moore Jr. (knee) is not expected to play, meaning first-round rookie Broderick Jones is in line to make his first career start. Starting right guard James Daniels (groin) didn't practice for a second straight day. Right tackle Chukwuma Okorafor (elbow) was back to full participation Thursday.
Steelers outside linebacker Alex Highsmith was added to the injury report and didn't practice Thursday due to a groin issue. If he's not able to play Sunday, it would be a significant blow to Pittsburgh's pass rush.
