Since the Ravens don't have to list an injury report during the preseason, it's on the media, based on what we've seen in practice, to guess who plays and who doesn't Thursday night against Tampa Bay.

Here's a brief rundown on the injuries, categorized as they would be if it were the regular season:


TE Ed Dickson, hamstring: On Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that Dickson would be out for a week or two after an MRI revealed a partially torn hamstring. The injury could ultimately sideline him for most of the preseason, though Dickson is expected back for the season-opener against Denver.

ILB Jameel McClain, spinal cord contusion: The Ravens are still waiting for team doctors to clear McClain, who injured his spine last season against Washington. Early in the preseason, Harbaugh said an MRI is still showing an issue that makes it unsafe for him to play at this time. It's unknown when McClain will receive clearance.

RG Marshal Yanda, shoulder: Yanda will likely miss the preseason after offseason rotator cuff surgery. Harbaugh said Yanda's on schedule as he should be ready for the season-opener.

Also out: Kapron Lewis-Moore (ACL), Ryan Jensen (broken foot).


CB Lardarius Webb, ACL: It would be a stretch to think Webb would play, considering he hasn't participated in 11-on-11 drills yet. He has been limited in practice, though, and has made some impressive plays in 7-on-7s. If the regular season started today, Webb would probably give it a go. Since there's still a month to go, there's no reason to rush back.

WR David Reed, groin: Reed missed the last three practices with a groin injury, which means he probably won't participate against the Buccaneers. It's not considered a serious injury, so he'll have a chance to play next week against the Falcons.


RB Ray Rice, ankle: Rice was able to practice on Tuesday, just a day after turning his ankle in practice. However, given that there's potential for soreness to set in, Rice could be given the game off to avoid any potential injuries. If it was a regular season game, he'd be in without question. But the Ravens may decide to take caution and hold him out.

Also questionable: Omar Brown (undisclosed), Chris Johnson (undisclosed).


OL Ramon Harewood, knee: Harewood's practiced the last three sessions, making it likely he plays in Thursday night's game against Tampa Bay. He's been working in as the starting right guard with Yanda still sidelined.

SS James Ihedigbo, neck: Ihedigbo only had to sit out one day of practice with a neck injury, and that was on Sunday in Annapolis, Md. Given he's in a competition with rookie Matt Elam for the starting job, the tough-nosed Ihedigbo won't want to miss any playing time.

NT Terrence Cody, elbow/hip: Cody was given a day off on Monday but returned to practice Tuesday. He should be good to go and needs to be able to play well so that he can earn a regular spot in Baltimore's defensive line rotation.
