The Ravens had a bit of shuffling going on with the injury report this week, but most of the players who missed practice sessions in the last few days look to be healthy coming into the weekend. Owen Daniels and Steve Smith both missed a practice this week but it appears that their absence was merely for rest purposes.
The biggest question mark is Chris Canty, who was officially listed as questionable following his third missed practice on Friday. We would consider him very iffy to play this week with what is being called a knee injury. Players typically need to get in at least one practice during the week to have a chance at suiting up on Sunday. At best, it looks like Canty will be a game time decision.

Timmy Jernigan and Eugene Monroe have both been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Panthers, as expected. Jernigan is week to week following a meniscus injury to his knee, and may miss a couple more weeks before he is able to return to the field. Monroe had minor knee surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.
The good news is that Bernard Pierce, Jimmy Smith, and Terrell Suggs are are all probable for Sunday after they popped up on the injury report with various ailments. Pierce missed week three’s game against the Browns with a thigh injury but practiced in full all week.
Jimmy Smith was listed with a knee/ankle ailment but missed only Wednesday’s session and practiced in full both Thursday and Friday. Terrell Suggs missed Wednesday and Thursday with a thigh injury but returned to practice on Friday. His absence from two straight days of practice is a bit of a concern, but the probable tag means that he is likely close to 100%.
