Who's Practicing, Who's Not vs. Jets


A physical game against the Buffalo Bills took a toll on the Ravens' health, with just a few days to prepare for Thursday night's home game against the New York Jets.

Lamar Jackson (thigh) was on Monday's injury report for the first time this season. He joined the team's walkthrough during the later portion of the session that was open to the media.

The MVP candidate has yet to miss a start during his young career, and the Ravens have a 17-3 record during the regular season with Jackson as their starter. With three touchdown passes Sunday, Jackson now leads the league with 28.

Starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley (concussion) was not at Monday's walkthrough. Stanley finished Sunday's 24-17 victory over Buffalo Bills, but the short week doesn't give him much time to avoid missing his first game of the season.

Stanley is having his best season playing at a Pro Bowl level. If Stanley is not ready to play Thursday, one option to replace him would be veteran offensive lineman James Hurst, a former starter at right tackle and left guard.

The offensive line dealt with its first significant loss when center Matt Skura suffered a season-ending knee injury Nov. 25 against the Los Angeles Rams. Patrick Mekari has replaced Skura as the starting center and has played well.

Tight end Mark Andrews (knee), safety Anthony Levine Sr. (ankle) and inside linebacker Chris Board (concussion) also missed Monday's walkthrough. All of them left Sunday's game early with injuries.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said Andrews' injury was not serious during his postgame press conference, but he is a key piece of the offense leading the team in receptions (54), receiving yards (707) and touchdown catches (seven).

Levine and Board are both key members of Baltimore's special teams units and will have to be replaced in that role if they are unable to play. Defensive tackle Jihad Ward (elbow) was also listed as a limited participant.

Le'Veon Bell Listed as Full Participant for Jets

While the Jets had a lengthy injury report Monday, star running back Le'Veon Bell was listed as a full participant Monday after missing Sunday's game because of the flu.

Bell is having a disappointing season by his standards but still leads the Jets in rushing with 589 yards and three touchdowns, although he is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. 

The list of players not practicing for the Jets on Monday included five starters – safety Jamal Adams (ankle), right tackle Chuma Edoga (knee), tight end Ryan Griffin (ankle), wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams (neck). Also not practicing were cornerback Arthur Maulet (calf), cornerback Brian Poole (concussion) and running back Bilal Powell (ankle/illness).

Limited participants were safety Mathias Farley (ankle), defensive lineman Henry Anderson (shoulder), offensive lineman Kevin Beachum (ankles), defensive lineman Steve McClendon (knee/hip), running back Ty Montgomery (foot/hip) and defensive lineman Nathan Sheperd (ankle).
