Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took a break from the practice field on December 8, as he was the lone member of the team not practicing on Friday ahead of the Week 14 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
Beckham was ultimately not included in the final injury report of the week, however, with Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirming that his absence was not injury-related but rather just a veteran's day off.
OBJ will play on Sunday while serving as the Ravens captain in his first game against his former franchise, the Los Angeles Rams, a team he helped win the Super Bowl LVI in February 2022.
Thursday marked the first time this year that quarterback Lamar Jackson was absent from a training session, in this case due to illness. Jackson rejoined the team on Friday.
Coach Harbaugh said "[Jackson] was feeling good, — full of life,” adding, “He looked good out there. He was back. He’s recovered.” Fear nothing, because Lamar is a lock to start Sunday's matchup.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey is set to make his comeback after missing the last two games with a calf injury, not being listed with any designation ahead of the weekend.
Linebacker Malik Harrison is, in fact, the only active player carrying a game status designation, listed as questionable due to a groin injury. The other two are OLB Malik Hamm and CB Damarion Williams, both still in their respective 21-day windows but still inactive coming off IR.
Defensive tackle Justin Madubuike, previously on the injury report for a concussion, has been cleared for Sunday's game after a full week of practice.
On the Rams' side, starting tight end Tyler Higbee is doubtful to play due to a neck issue while starting outside linebackers Michael Hoecht and Byron Young are questionable after limited participation in Friday's practice.
