OWINGS MILLS, Md. — A day after practicing without incident, Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff was a surprise addition to Thursday’s injury report.
Under much scrutiny due to his struggles kicking on the road this season, Cundiff was listed as a non-participant with a left calf injury. The Ravens do not typically designate an injury on the “left” or “right” side, making the listing a bit more peculiar.
A right-footed kicker, the injury would presumably hamper his ability to plant, which was a factor in his two misses in Cleveland last Sunday.
Center Matt Birk, linebacker Ray Lewis, and cornerback Chris Carr missed their second practice of the week. Birk’s status remains a mystery after he sprained his right shoulder in Sunday’s win over the Browns before returning to the game.
Lewis and Carr are not expected to play against Indianapolis.
A day after receiving rest for the right toe injury he’s dealt with since the season opener, left guard Ben Grubbs returned to the practice field. Wednesday was the first workout Grubbs had missed since making his return in Pittsburgh on Nov. 6 after a six-game absence.
