The Ravens have several players recovering from injuries as they prepare for Sunday’s road game against the Tennessee Titans.
Defensive tackle Michael Pierce, linebacker/defensive back Anthony Levine (hamstring), and cornerbacks Anthony Averett (hamstring) and Brandon Carr (knee) all missed Wednesday’s practice. Pierce, one of the Ravens’ top run-stoppers on defense, was out of the lineup Week 5 during a loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that he was uncertain Pierce would be back this week.
“That’s a firm maybe,’’ Harbaugh said. “I’m very hopeful, and I say that in all sincerity. I’m very hopeful. We’ll find out, but we could use him. He’s a factor inside. He’s a big difference. And those other guys, ‘Worm’ (Chris Wormley) played well. ‘Worm’ is a little more of a five-technique than a three-technique, but he did a good job. But Michael Pierce is a dominating factor inside.”
Linebacker Tim Williams (hamstring) and running back De’Lance Turner (hamstring) were limited Wednesday. The Ravens could use Williams’ presence as a pass rusher against Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota. Williams has two sacks this season, despite missing the Cleveland game. Turner had one catch for seven yards against the Browns.
Veterans John Brown, Terrell Suggs and Eric Weddle did not practice for non-injury reasons.
