A bit more improvement on the injury front for the Baltimore Ravens. Two players who did not participate at all on Wednesday had limited participation on Thursday. That's encouraging news for DT Haloti Ngata (back) and Ben Grubbs (toe), both of whom did not practice on Wednesday. This progression more than likely means that as veterans they are being brought along slowly during the week in order to keep them fresh for game day.
LB Ray Lewis (toe) and CB Chris Carr (back) stayed on the same "limited participation" list, although PK Billy Cundiff (calf), DE Cory Redding (ankle) and CB Lardarius Webb (toe) stayed on the "did not practice" list as they were on Wednesday as well.
Expect Cundiff to be kept out of practice until Friday, just to prove he can kick field goals and if the team needs to utilize punter Sam Koch on kickoffs as they did in the second half of the Indianapolis Colts game, they would be fine with that. Redding may or may not play and while he has been a beast as of late, the Ravens are deep along the defensive line and could compensate with a bevy of other choices.
