The Ravens looked to be mostly healthy as they started preparing for the Cleveland Browns this week.
They had just six players listed on the injury report, and the only absence was wide receiver Mike Wallace (ankle).
Wallace, 30, has occasionally missed practice time this year to rest various injuries, but the only time he missed a game was because of a concussion in Week 8. His injured ankle didn’t knock him out of Sunday’s matchup with Pittsburgh early, as he still finished the game.
If he continues to miss practice time during the week, then that would make his status a greater concern going into Sunday’s meeting at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The other notable injury questions were wide receiver Chris Moore (hip) and linebacker Za’Darius Smith (shoulder), who were both limited participants. Cornerback Maurice Canady (knee) and center Ryan Jensen (ankle) were also limited in practice.
Moore left Sunday’s game with the hip injury, which the television broadcast said occurred during a kickoff return. Before getting hurt, Moore had caught three passes for 48 yards and a touchdown. He’s come on strong in recent weeks and looks like he could be a valuable piece of the offense down the stretch.
Getting Smith back on the field is a good sign after he missed an entire week of practice and the game.
The only other player on the injury report was Jermaine Eluemunor (shoulder), who was a full participant. He practiced fully last week*, *but still didn’t play in the game.
Browns List Nine Players on Injury Report
The Browns conduct a walk-through on Wednesdays rather than a full practice, so their injury report was an estimation.
But they had a more crowded report, as nine players were listed with injuries. The only two absences were defensive backs Jamar Taylor (foot) and Brien Boddy-Calhoun (knee).
The limited participants were rookie safety Jabrill Peppers (knee), defensive lineman Danny Shelton (chest/ribs), tight end David Njoku (foot/wrist), wide receiver Matt Hazel (hamstring) and offensive linemen Shon Coleman (shoulder) and JC Tretter (knee).
Linebacker Josh Keyes (wrist) was a full participant.
