Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is back at practice Wednesday, as anticipated, but was limited.
Andrews is listed with a quad injury, which is the first indication of what held him out of six straight practices. He was running sprints as teammates arrived to practice, and Andrews participated in individual drills open to reporters.
On Monday, Head Coach John Harbaugh told reporters and fans not to push the panic button regarding the star tight end, and Harbaugh said Andrews "looked good" Wednesday.
Backup quarterback Tyler Huntley is not on the injury report, indicating he's fully back from his hamstring injury suffered on Aug. 11 and ready to play. Still, it remains to be seen who the No. 2 quarterback is for Sunday's game between Huntley and Josh Johnson.
Ravens Pro Bowl cornerback Marlon Humphrey was the only player absent from the early portion of practice. After having foot surgery in mid-August, Humphrey was reportedly expected to miss about a month. If Humphrey doesn't play in Week 1, which would seem doubtful if he doesn't practice this week, some combination of Rock Ya-Sin, Ronald Darby, and Brandon Stephens is expected to start against the Texans.
Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was limited.
Texans Send Starting Right Tackle to Injured Reserve
The Texans placed starting right tackle Tytus Howard on injured reserve Wednesday. Howard is recovering from hand surgery.
That should help open up more opportunities for David Ojabo, Jadeveon Clowney and the Ravens' pass rush.
Starting safety Jimmy Ward (hip) also did not practice.
