Ravens safety Marcus Williams returned to practice Wednesday, his first practice since going down with a hamstring injury in London. He was a limited participant.

Williams' return would give the Ravens an abundance of safety talent and spark interesting conversations about how to use them all. His replacement, Geno Stone, leads the NFL with five interceptions. Kyle Hamilton is a versatile mainstay.

When healthy, Williams is one of the Ravens' best defensive players. He was also dealing with a pectoral injury before the hamstring but was playing well despite physical limitations. Williams was doing tackling drills early in Wednesday's practice.

Asked how close he feels to where he wants to be, Williams replied, "I feel good." Asked if he's going to play in Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, Williams said, "We'll see what happens."

Six Ravens players did not practice Wednesday: wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder), running back Gus Edwards (toe), offensive tackles Ronnie Stanley (shoulder) and Morgan Moses (shoulder), outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle/knee), and cornerback Rock Ya-Sin (illness).

Head Coach John Harbaugh said none of the injuries or absences are concerning.

Safety Daryl Worley also returned to practice Wednesday as he was designated to return from injure reserve, opening his 21-day practice window. Worley suffered a shoulder injury in the Ravens' Week 4 win in Cleveland.

Running back Keaton Mitchell (hamstring) was a full practice participant to start the week.
