The last week of Baltimore Ravens practice was largely devoid of injuries, thankfully. The team deserves a stint of good luck after losing multiple players through the first week of camp, and so far things are looking up. The starters are projected to get more time on the field this week, somewhere between a quarter and the entire first half. Young players such as Rick Wagner and C.J. Mosley are expected to play up to one full half. This will enable the coaching staff to better evaluate their progress and give the players valuable snaps at the same time.
The Ravens will roll into Arlington, Texas tonight with a big arrow pointing up not only on the performance of things, but also in regards to health. Last week’s big win over the 49ers should give the team confidence, especially since their young players had an impact in their first outing.
To find out who will take the field tonight and who won’t, here is the latest Ravens vs. Cowboys injury report.
Lardarius Webb (back)
Terrence Cody (hip)
Kapron Lewis-Moore (Achilles)
Brent Urban (knee)
Will Rackley (head)
Webb continues to recover from back spasms, which is expected as John Harbaugh had previously stated that he would miss at least the first two preseason games. Webb has said that he expects to return soon, but also admitted that he is at the mercy of team doctors.
Cody is still on the physically unable to perform list (PUP), and his exact return date isn’t known. Rackley has missed several weeks with a concussion. Lewis-Moore and Urban are out for the season.
Owen Daniels isn’t injured but has been rested the last two days of practice. The nine year veteran has looked a little slow when he is on the field and the team is likely hoping that a little rest will keep him fresh for the upcoming season.
Jackson has missed three straight practices with an ankle injury that is considered minor, but the team may not want to take any chances with a player that has emerged as a favorite to win the third cornerback spot. Jackson could be a valuable piece of the defense this year so the team likely won’t push him.
