The Ravens offensive line has been durable this season, but two starters were missing from Wednesday’s practice.
Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (knee) and right guard Marshal Yanda (illness) were not on the field.
Stanley was slow to get up after one play late during Sunday’s victory over the New England Patriots, but he finished the game. Stanley has only missed two games the past three seasons and he has played with various injuries.
Head Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday morning that Yanda woke up not feeling well.
“He’s sick today, won’t be practicing today,” Harbaugh said. “He’s got something he caught from his kids the last couple of days.”
Wide receiver Chris Moore (thumb) practiced on a limited basis while running back Mark Ingram II and safety Earl Thomas III missed practice for non-injury reasons.
Bengals Star Wide Receiver A.J. Green Doesn’t Practice
Coming off a bye week, the Bengals are hopeful star wide receiver A.J. Green will play Sunday after missing the first eight games with an ankle injury.
However, Green surprisingly did not practice on Wednesday after Head Coach Zac Taylor said he expected Green would play this week. After practice, Taylor said Green still had soreness.
“It came after the walkthrough,” Taylor said via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It just didn’t feel great, so we held him out of practice today. We’ll get through tonight and see where it’s at (Thursday).”
Taylor would not say if Green had suffered a setback.
“I wouldn’t want to say anything,” Taylor said. “I literally learned when I walked out on the field. We’ll get more information and find out (Thursday).”
Also missing practice for Cincinnati were cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (knee), guard Alex Redmond (knee/ankle) and tight end Tyler Eifert (non-injury related).
The Bengals could also get defensive ends Carl Lawson (hamstring) and Carlos Dunlap back on the field. Lawson practice fully Wednesday and Dunlap, who didn’t play in Week 6 versus the Ravens, returned before the bye. The Bengals’ banged-up offensive line is also getting healthier.
