The Baltimore Ravens reported full attendance at their Wednesday practice session, with all 53 players present. This included the team's new quarterback, Malik Cunningham, who was signed to the practice squad on Tuesday.
Cunningham was added to fill the roster spot left vacant by wide receiver and return specialist Devin Duvernay, currently on injured reserve due to a back injury, and also looking at the future of the quarterback position ahead of 2024 with both Tyler Huntley and Josh Johnson's contracts expiring.
Significantly, safety Kyle Hamilton returned to practice just three days after sustaining a knee sprain in the game against the Rams last Sunday. Hamilton, however, was limited while sporting a brace on his left knee. He ran some individual drills alongside other defensive backs on Wednesday.
Linebacker Roquan Smith was present but also limited in practice with a back injury not reported before yesterday's session. Smith played every defensive snap for Baltimore in their recent game against the Los Angeles Rams, so it's a rather surprising development worth tracking during the next few days.
Outside linebacker Malik Harrison, who has missed the last two games with a groin injury, finally returned to practice logging a full session on Wednesday to kick Week 15 off.
Hamilton, discussing his knee injury post-practice, said, "I feel pretty good." Hamilton suffered a sprained MCL on Sunday and his availability for Sunday's game is still in question.
Should Hamilton be unable to play, Geno Stone is most probably going to be his main replacement starting alongside Marcus Williams. The team would then need to address the slot cornerback position, with veteran Arthur Maulet in prime position to take on that role.
Another potential solution used by DC Mike Macdonald could involve shifting Marlon Humphrey to the slot and bringing Ronald Darby in as the outside corner, something the latter is natural at.
Additionally, Damarion "Pepe" Williams, recently activated from injured reserve to the 53-man roster, might see his first play of the season, providing the Ravens with more options in their secondary if needed.
On a final note, Odell Beckham Jr. was listed as limited in practice, but he was not sidelined due to injury but rather enjoying a bit of a rest day.
