Ravens defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and left guard Kelechi Osemele each returned to practice on Wednesday, signaling that both are close to returning to game action.
Jernigan has been out for a few weeks after having a knee injury to deal with. Osemele hyperextended his knee against the Colts and was forced to sit out against the Buccaneers this past week. Jernigan was a full participant in practice and could be on his way to being available this week.
Osemele was limited and may have some more work to do before being able to return. However, he's tough and can play through pain — which is what he did at the beginning of last year before enduring too much. So the fact that he was limited today is a good sign for his availability this Sunday.
Here's the full injury report:
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: DT Christo Bilukidi (ankle), DE Chris Canty (wrist), LT Eugene Monroe (knee)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: WR Kamar Aiken (concussion), LG Kelechi Osemele (knee)
FULL PARTICIPATION: WR Marlon Brown (pelvis), DT Timmy Jernigan (knee)
