In the lead-up to Sunday's divisional clash against the Cleveland Browns, the Baltimore Ravens held their first practice of the week on Wednesday and listed two players as "DNP" on the day.
Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. seemingly had a day off while nose tackle Michael Pierce didn't practice due to an illness.
On the positive side, right tackle Morgan Moses returned to full practice participation after being sidelined last week due to a shoulder injury, missing the second game this season after breaking his seemingly unbeatable 130+ games-played streak from the earlier days of his career.
Despite appearing somewhat limited during practice according to those watching live at The Castle, the Ravens officially listed Moses as a full participant so there's that for our happiness.
Beckham, who is coming off his best performance of the season in last weekend's game against Seattle (on the day of his 31st birthday of all days!) with five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown, didn't seem to be nursing any new injuries after the victory against the Seattle Seahawks.
Although the injury report listed a knee issue, the absence was labeled as "non-injury related," with OBJ simply getting a veteran's day off so he remains as healthy and ready to go as possible during the second half of the season.
In another positive development, safety Marcus Williams (who missed the past three games with a hamstring injury even though he's felt close to making a comeback for days on end) was not listed on the injury report.
It looks like, once and for all, Williams will return this weekend in a pivotal divisional game against Baltimore's foes from Cleveland.
The Cleveland Browns are in a much more precarious situation when it comes to their health bill. As many as nine Elves missed Wednesday's practice in Cleveland.
Defensive end Myles Garrett, wide receiver Amari Cooper, and guard Joel Bitonio received rest days and didn't log a rep to start the week of practice ahead of Week 10.
However, the Browns face real trouble with key players sidelined for real with different injuries, including tight end David Njoku, cornerback Greg Newsome, running back Pierre Strong, and right tackle Dawand Jones.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson, nursing a shoulder injury, was a full participant in practice after already starting his first game last weekend following a multi-week absence. In contrast with their first meeting, Baltimore will have to deal with Watson as the Browns next Sunday.
