The Ravens held their first practice this week ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Detroit Lions inside The Bank and the news coming from The Castle was mostly good when it comes to Baltimore's health bill.

While there were some players missing practice on Wednesday, most of those listed in the injury report as DNP were already known and expected to be there.

Encouragingly and certainly surprising was to find out about the return of outside linebacker Odafe Oweh to (limited) practice on Wednesday. It marked his comeback to the field after he missed the last four games due to an ankle injury sustained in Week 2 against Cincinnati.

In a similar vein, edge rusher Malik Harrison cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and was also back on the field as a limited participant after an early exit in Sunday's game in London against the Titans.

When it comes to absentees, OLB Jadeveon Clowney was out but it was later revealed that he had just taken a veteran's day off, while safety Marcus Williams, dealing with a hamstring issue stayed out without practicing at all.

John Harbaugh said on Monday that Williams' availability for this weekend's game is "real iffy" so don't expect him on the field of M&T Bank Stadium come Sunday as he's started the week of practices bagging a DNP on top of everything, as expected.

Defensive lineman Brent Urban, nursing a neck problem, was absent. So was cornerback Kevon Seymour, who is recovering from an ankle injury suffered in London.

Outside linebacker Tyus Bowser should also return soon, but Harbaugh once again said on Wednesday that the final decision "is going to be in his court."

Bowser released the latest episode of his "Tyus Bowser Show" podcast on Tuesday, saying "I'm feeling great. I'm on the field, I'm moving around very well, just gaining more and more confidence each and every day."

The linebacker added "I feel like myself, it's getting to that point. I'm just going to continue to work hard and when that time comes, it comes."

Next. Roster moves: signed Super Bowls safety, released veteran RB. Roster moves: signed Super Bowls safety, released veteran RB. dark

It's still uknown when he'll be back, but Bowser made clear "If I can play, I'll definitely play. That's the goal."
