Who's Practicing, Who's Not vs. Tennessee Titans

The biggest news of the day was that quarterback Joe Flacco practiced and said he's "definitely ready to go" after suffering a concussion last week against the Miami Dolphins.

"To be honest with you, I felt pretty normal pretty quickly," Flacco said.

In addition to getting Flacco back, the Ravens offense also looks like it is getting healthy as a whole.  

Wallace Practices as a Full Participant

Wide receiver Mike Wallace missed last week's game with a concussion, but he practiced as a full participant.

He suffered the concussion in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings, and then was a limited participant leading up to the Thursday night game against Miami. He didn't have enough time to get cleared to play for that game, but the fact that's he's practicing fully at the start of the week is encouraging.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was a limited participant in practice as he continues to deal with a shoulder issue. The injury forced him to miss a pair of games, but he returned against the Dolphins and caught a touchdown in that win.

He was wearing a red non-contact jersey in practice, and the Ravens want to protect him during the week. 

While Maclin and Wallace both practiced, Michael Campanaro (shoulder) and Chris Matthews (thigh) were sidelined. Campanaro suffered his injury against the Vikings and missed the Dolphins game, and Matthews has missed the last two games.

M. Williams, T. Williams Return; Boyle Sidelined

The Ravens got a pair of Williams back on the field, as Maxx and Tim Williams returned from injuries.

Tim Williams missed the last three games with a thigh injury, and he was a full participant in practice. He would give the Ravens another young pass rusher in the fold if he's able to play this week.

Maxx Williams has been battling an ankle injury for most of the season and missed the last two games. He's played in just three games this season, but was as full participant Wednesday.

He has six catches for 32 yards this season.

While Williams returned, starting tight end Nick Boyle was absent because of a toe injury. Boyle has 18 catches for 138 yards, and he's a particularly valuable blocker for the Ravens in both the run and pass game.

Tight end Vince Mayle, who suffered a concussion against the Dolphins, was a limited participant in practice. He's seen limited reps on offense but is particularly valuable on special teams.

Woodhead Returns, West Still Out

Veteran running back Danny Woodhead returned to practice for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in the season opener.

He participated in individual drills before making his way off the field when the Ravens went to full-team work. Woodhead isn't eligible to play until the Week 11 matchup with the Packers at the earliest.

Running back Terrance West continues to miss time with a calf injury, and he's at risk of missing his fourth-straight game.

Stanley, Jensen Both Limited

Starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley and center Ryan Jensen were both limited in practice because of shoulder issues.

Stanley was favoring his shoulder at time against the Dolphins, but still finished the game. Jensen didn't miss any snaps against Miami because of the injury.

In a year where the offense line has been hit hard with injuries, Stanley and Jensen have both been consistent performers for the Ravens. It would be a big blow for the offense if either of them were to miss time.

The other players who missed practice were cornerback Jimmy Smith (Achilles) and defensive tackle Michael Pierce (illness). The Ravens have routinely given Smith off days in practice to give the Achilles the needed time to rest, and he's been arguably the team's best defender this year.
