Pitta, Cody, McPhee practice; J. Jones sits out on Wednesday

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens appeared to be in relatively good shape from a health standpoint on Wednesday as they continued preparations for a meeting with the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

Tight end Dennis Pitta (concussion-related symptoms), nose tackle Terrence Cody (elbow), and defensive end Pernell McPhee (knee/thigh) were all present and worked on a limited basis. Cody and McPhee were both inactive for Sunday’s game against the Steelers while Pitta left the contest in the first quarter after taking a severe hit from Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons and safety Ryan Clark.

Newly-signed cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) and wide receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) appeared to be doing some work during the open portion of practice but were listed as non-participants on Wednesday.

Coach John Harbaugh expressed optimism on Monday that Pitta should be fine to play this week after his symptoms had already begun to subside during Sunday night’s game.

Cody and McPhee both missed practice on Friday before sitting out against Pittsburgh. An elbow injury sustained in practice last week sidelined Cody, and McPhee has dealt with knee and thigh issues that have forced him out of the Ravens’ last three games.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith was ruled out for Sunday’s game as he continues to recover from sports hernia surgery.

Newly-signed cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) and wide receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) appeared to be doing some work during the open portion of practice but were listed as non-participants on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Chargers had six players absent from Wednesday’s workout, including former Ravens offensive tackle Jared Gaither and defensive tackle Aubrayo Frankllin.
