The first official injury report of the week was encouraging for the Ravens as only three players appeared on the list.
Offensive lineman Jah Reid appears unlikely to play in the season opener against the Bengals as he continues to recover from a calf injury that’s hampered him since mandatory minicamp in mid-June. The second-year lineman has suffered two setbacks since then and did not participate in Wednesday’s practice.
Safety Sean Considine worked on a limited basis as he has yet to pass his baseline test after he sustained a second concussion late in the season. The veteran has said he expects to play in the opener on Monday night.
Tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta were not listed on the injury report, which lends support to the notion that both players describing themselves as game-time decisions against Cincinnati appeared to be gamesmanship more than legitimate concern.
Running back Ray Rice was not listed on the injury report despite not being present for the portion of practice open to media, which means he was simply a late arrival to the field.
Meanwhile, the Bengals’ injury report was a little more crowded as rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick has already been ruled out with a knee injury while three others did not partake in their Thursday practice.
