OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As the Ravens move closer to Sunday’s divisional playoff matchup with the Houston Texans, their injury report continued to look promising on Thursday.
Jameel McClain joined fellow linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo as a limited participant after not being listed on Wednesday’s injury report. The fourth-year linebacker suffered an MCL sprain in the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on New Year’s Day.
Ayanbadejo wore a blue beanie on top of his helmet during Thursday’s practice as he continued to work on a very limited basis during the open portion of practice. The veteran sprained his quadriceps muscle in Week 17 and is considered to be the Ravens’ biggest injury concern for Sunday’s game.
Right guard Marshal Yanda was added to Thursday’s report but was listed as a full participant.
For Houston, standout cornerback Johnathan Joseph was added to the injury report as a limited participant in Thursday’s workout, joining tight end Owen Daniels and wide receiver Andre Johnson as players who failed to take their normal amount of reps.
