Two days before the Ravens take the field for a Thursday Night Football matchup against AFC North foes from Cincinnati, Baltimore reported more injury problems than the franchise did on Monday by listing as many as eight players either "limited" or not participating on Tuesday's session.
With only three days between last Sunday's game and Thursday's outing and only one true practice (the one held on Tuesday), most of the injured players will face an uphill battle to make it to The Bank ground on TFN.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (calf), left tackle Ronnie Stanley (knee), and linebacker Trenton Simpson (concussion) were among the eight players with problems on Tuesday, the three of them missing the second practice in a row this week.
Humphrey and Stanley sustained injuries in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns, with their status for Thursday nearly a lock to see them forfeit this game no matter what.
Meanwhile, Simpson, who suffered a concussion, didn't clear the protocol on Tuesday and will need to hurry up to make it to the field, though that might not happen at all either because of the short-week timeline heading into this Week 11 matchup.
Adding to the defensive concerns, outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy (groin) and lineman John Simpson (illness/shoulder) were also absent from practice, the latter making for a bigger concern as he wasn't listed on Monday's report.
Rest days were granted to veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney. Safety Daryl Worley (hamstring) participated fully after a limited session on Monday.
On the offensive front, wide receiver Devin Duvernay (hamstring) was limited in practice and would impact the Ravens special teams on TNF considering he barely (if at all) is out there on actual offensive snaps.
Head coach John Harbaugh sounded kinda optimistic this week speaking to reporters, stating that Humphrey and Stanley's injuries are not "long term," and they have a "chance" to play on Thursday, although in all honesty there was (and still is) never a real chance any of them is going to place if we're realistic.
Morgan Moses, the Ravens' starting right tackle, confirmed his availability to play come Thursday after a two-game absence due to a shoulder injury.
Even with Moses expected back, the Ravens signed offensive tackle Josh Wells to the practice squad on Tuesday to err on the safe side, following that transaction by releasing backup tight end Eric Tomlinson.
