OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens conducted their final full practice Tuesday in preparation for their final preseason game in St. Louis and were without the same six players absent from Monday’s workout.
Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda (knee) was not present during the portion of practice open to media and hasn’t worked since last Monday when he was accidentally undercut by linebacker Chavis Williams. Coach John Harbaugh has said on two separate occasions that the injury isn’t considered to be serious, but his extended absence is beginning to create questions on whether the “tweak” is more serious than originally thought.
However, the Ravens continue to say Yanda will be ready to play in time for the season opener on Sept. 10.
“Absolutely,” said offensive coordinator Cam Cameron when asked if he expected the Pro Bowl guard to be ready. “Until I’m told differently, we’ll be ready for Marshal to play.”
Offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf), Sean Considine (concussion), wide receiver Tommy Streeter (foot), and linebackers Ricky Brown (undisclosed) and Josh Bynes (back) were also absent from the portion of practice open to media.
The Ravens worked in helmets, shells, and shorts Tuesday afternoon and will conduct a walk-through Wednesday before flying to St. Louis.
The final preseason game is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff Thursday night at the Edward Jones Dome.
