The Baltimore Ravens (12-3) held their first practice of the week on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins (11-4) at M&T Bank Stadium scheduled for the afternoon. Considering this practice was the first after Monday night's game at the San Francisco 49ers, the Ravens opted for a walk-through session.
The Ravens' injury report from Wednesday's practice is only an estimation of where things stand, mind you, made by the team's public relations staff.
Three players did not participate in the walk-through: wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf), safety Kyle Hamilton (knee), and right guard Kevin Zeitler (knee/quad). Both Hamilton and Zeitler exited the game against the 49ers due to their injuries earlier than the final whistle.
It's worth remembering that Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was optimistic on Monday when discussing the injuries suffered during the battle against the 49ers, saying "It doesn’t look bad for anybody" regarding those issues and implying the coaches were "fairly optimistic about everybody."
Regarding Hamilton, and talking to media members attending practice on Wednesday, Harbaugh noted that it was too early to make a decision about his availability for the game against the Dolphins next Sunday. "We’re less than 48 hours from the [49ers] game... So we’re just kind of working through all those things right now."
Rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers entered last Monday's matchup carrying some injury concerns after using a walking boot at some points last week. Ultimately, he played against the Niners and finished Monday's game with a team-high nine catches for 72 yards and a touchdown.
Limited participants in the practice included cornerbacks Jayln Armour-Davis (concussion) and Arthur Maulet (knee), offensive lineman Patrick Mekari (concussion), inside linebackers Patrick Queen (shoulder) and Roquan Smith (pec), defensive lineman Broderick Washington (elbow), and punter Jordan Stout (back).
On the Dolphins' side of things, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (ankle) was among seven players who did not practice Wednesday. The list also included running backs De’Von Achane (toe) and Raheem Mostert (knee/ankle); receivers Tyreek Hill (ankle/rest) and Robbie Chosen (concussion); offensive tackle Terron Armstead (knee/ankle/back); and offensive lineman Robert Hunt (hamstring).
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was limited in practice with left thumb and quad injuries, but he should be ready to go on Sunday. Whoever wins this game is most probably going to end up with the No. 1 seed in the AFC, so you know everybody will do everything they can to play even if on just one leg.
