The Ravens (3-2) arrived in London on Monday evening trying to change the NFL trend and to flip the script they wrote back in 2017 when they last played a football game in England.

After spending Monday exploring their hotel rooms and Tuesday buying some gifts around the English capital, our superheroes returned to the practice field on Wednesday as they would have done on American soil every other week.

Following practice, head coach John Harbaugh spoke at the podium feeling like Ted Lasso, and later the team released their initial injury report for Week 6.

For all of the injuries and health woes the Ravens have gone through earlier this season, there is no arguing this was a rather promising list, wasn't it?

The Ravens had both offensive tackles Morgan Moses and Patrick Mekari training at Tottenham's practice facility after they either missed (breaking a 134-game streak) or left Sunday's game against the Steelers injured before the final whistle, respectively.

The presence of those two, along with Ronnie Stanley's availability, is going to be crucial for the Ravens to get the win in Week 6 as the offensive line is pretty banged-up outside of those three members with Mekari already being a backup.

WR Odell Beckham, CB Marlon Humphrey, and OLB Jadeveon Clowney set to play on Sunday

Harbaugh was asked about Clowney's absence from practice on Wednesday after he played in Week 5 without sustaining any injury and the coach made clear that he was missing because of an illness, but nothing worrying.

"We've got some guys a little bit sick," Harbaugh said. "They missed practice because they were sick."

As far as Beckham and Humphrey go, both should play on Sunday against the Titans. They made their respective comebacks from injury last weekend at Pittsburgh but they looked rusty and whiffed when the Ravens needed them the most.

Beckham was targeted in a pass that was intercepted late in the game, killing the options of a Ravens comeback. Humphrey surrendered a 40+ yard catch-and-run to Steelers wideout George Pickens for the game-winning touchdown.

Harbaugh said Beckham was limited with a "soft-tissue type of a situation," adding the veteran "should be fine."

The coach didn't comment on Humphrey yesterday, but the cornerback spoke after Sunday's defeat at Pittsburgh saying he "felt great" on the field and that "it felt good to be back."

OLB Odafe Oweh and S Geno Stone out for now

Odafe Oweh (ankle) hasn't played in any of Baltimore's last three games and he started the week in the worst possible way as he didn't practice on Wednesday.

Oweh suffered an ankle injury back in the Week 2 win against the Cincinnati Bengals when he only played 13 snaps following a 45-snap outing in Week 1. He was ruled out for Week 3 against the Colts and last shut down for the following two matchups against the Browns and the Steelers.

A new name popped up in the injury report, as safety Geno Stone made the list after picking up a hamstring injury. We all know how tricky that type of injury can be to come back from, so Stone's availability for Sunday's clash against the Titans is very much up in the air for now.

Stone has appeared in all five games this season although he entered the injury report briefly with a rib injury a few weeks ago. He's completed 23 tackles so far breaking up two passes and intercepting two throws.
