Gorrer Impresses In Practice
Ravens cornerback Danny Gorrer has just five days to get ready to possibly start against the Tennessee Titans.
It's a mighty quick turnaround after being signed on Tuesday, but Gorrer has impressed in practice this week and looks ready to roll.
"I do feel good about it," Head Coach John Harbaugh said of Gorrer's week of practice.
"He did a good job. He had familiarity. He understands the defense. He seems like he has been here all along as far as the mental part of it. He looks good physically, so he has done well."
Gorrer, who last played in Baltimore in 2011, did have a head start in his preparation.
He played in a similar system to Baltimore's in Detroit. Former Ravens Secondary Coach Teryl Austin is now the Lions' defensive coordinator, and he kept the same scheme and much of the same language.
Cody Could Suit Up For First Time
After undergoing offseason hip surgery, defensive tackle Terrence Cody may suit up for the first time this season against the Tennessee Titans.
Cody was moved off the physically unable to perform list Tuesday, and he was looking more nimble than his previous self in practice.
"He's done a good job getting in shape, he's healthier than he's ever been," Harbaugh told CSNBaltimore.com.
"He's probably bending, moving his feet, moving down the line, better than he has in the past, just because he is healthier. I'm looking forward to him having an opportunity to play. At some point in time here soon, he's going to get a chance and we'll see what he's made of."
Getting Cody back would give the Ravens more depth on a defensive line that has been depleted for much of the season.
Offensive Linemen Both Probable
Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda (knee) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday, but both returned on Thursday and Friday and are listed as probable to play against the Titans.
Baltimore will look to get its ground game going behind the two blockers as the Titans rank 28th in the NFL against the run, allowing an average of 134.8 yards per game.
Zuttah is coming off one of his toughest games, in which he allowed one sack and seven quarterback hits, per Pro Football Focus (PFF).
Three Ravens Ruled Out
Baltimore ruled out wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot) and offensive tackle Jah Reid (hand).
Reid appeared on the injury report for the first time Friday. He was a full participant Wednesday and Thursday.
It will be the second straight game Campanaro will miss after the seventh-round rookie injured his hamstring while returning a punt in Cincinnati.
While Smith is done for the season due to foot surgery, he hasn't yet been placed on injured reserve. Harbaugh said he didn't know when the Ravens will fill his roster spot.
"We'll look at that. We'll see the timing of it," he said. "We'll try to do the best thing for our roster as soon as we can, and as soon as we get the right guy."
Titans Are Healthy
Coming off their bye week, the Titans don't seem to have any major injury concerns.
Starting wide receiver Nate Washington (shoulder) is the only big name on the list. He's listed as questionable, but was a full practice participant Friday.
Reserve tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) was ruled out earlier this week. Defensive tackle Sammie Hill (hamstring) is questionable and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee) is probable.
