The secondary continues to be impacted by injuries for the Ravens as they prepare to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (hip) has joined Jimmy Smith (knee) on the Ravens’ injury report.
Humphrey missed some snaps during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs before returning in the season half. After the game, Humphrey said he left the game because of something physical, but didn’t elaborate.
The Ravens will want Humphries as close to 100 percent as possible against the Browns, who feature one of the NFL’s top receiving tandems in Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.
Beckham has faced Baltimore just once in his NFL career, playing for the New York Giants. He exploded in the second half against the Ravens and finished with eight catches, a career-high 222 yards and two touchdowns.
Smith has been out since suffering his injury during the season-opener, which has forced the Ravens to go deeper into their secondary depth chart with nickel cornerback Tavon Young (neck) already out for the season.
Tight end Mark Andrews also missed Monday’s practice as he continues to deal with a foot issue. Andrews has missed practice each of the past two weeks but still suited up to play on Sunday.
Safety Brynden Trawick (elbow) also did not practice and safety Earl Thomas III sat out for non-injury reasons.
Browns Miss Four Starters From Practice
The Browns’ starting cornerbacks are also dealing with injuries as Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) both sat out Wednesday.
Seven Browns did not practice Wednesday including two other starters, safety Morgan Burnett (quad) and right tackle Chris Hubbard (quad).
Others who didn’t practice included offensive tackle Kendall Lamm (knee), safety Sheldrick Redwine (hamstring) and defensive tackle Devaroe Lawrence (non-injury related).
Three Browns were limited in practice: guard Joel Bitonio (abdomen), wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) and linebacker Adarius Taylor (ankle).
