The Ravens are finally starting to get relatively healthy barring a couple of long-term injuries. Baltimore released their second injury report ahead of Week 7 and only three players didn't practice.

One of those listed in the report, Ronald Darby, hadn't been listed before but at least he is only going through some sort of "illness," as described by the team. The other two players getting DNPs were expected, so there wasn't big news on that front.

Jadeveon Clowney returned after getting a veteran's day off on Wednesday. Brent Urban came back from his neck problems although he was still limited. More promisingly, both Odafe Oweh and Malik Harrison were full participants, which is fantastic news for a Ravens defense in need of as many warm bodies as it can get.

Someone not listed above, because he's still sitting on Injured Reserve, is outside linebacker Tyus Bowser. And judging by the exchange of words (in the distance) between Head Coach John Harbaugh and the player, things might be getting a bit complicated on that front.

In August, with Bowser not practicing at all through the Ravens training camp, Harbaugh labeled Bowser's injury as having an "agitated knee."

Two weeks after that, the Ravens decided to place Bowser on Injured Reserve listing him in the PUP/Non-football injury list. It's now six games into the season and heading into the seventh, so Bowser could have been activated for nearly a month already.

Last Monday, Harbaugh said that the situation with Bowser "had “gotten a little bit more complicated."

Bowser said on Tuesday, in the latest episode of his podcast, that he is "feeling great." He added that he has been "moving around very well," which leads you to believe he should be at least practicing with the rest of his teammates. Bowser also stated, "I have great people around me, great support staff." He added, "There is a lot going on."

Harbaugh said on Wednesday that Bowser "is meeting with doctors" so they examine his injured knee. The coach added "I want the best for Tyus," and "I want this to get resolved."

Bowser only played nine games last season coming off surgery following a torn Achilles injury he suffered in January 2022. He has yet to debut this season, missing all summer camp and not appearing in a single practice with the rest of the Ravens.

The linebacker had his best season two years ago when he appeared (and started) in all 17 games logging seven sacks to go with 59 tackles, four deflected passes, and two forced fumbles.
