OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Despite Thursday’s injury report looking much improved after seven players missed practice a day earlier, two key offensive starters missed practice for the second straight day as the Ravens continue preparations for the St. Louis Rams.

Wide receiver Lee Evans (ankle) and guard Ben Grubbs (toe) were both absent from the field and remain question marks for Sunday as the Ravens hope to improve their underwhelming 13-point output from a week ago.

The Rams received good news on Thursday with the return of running back Steven Jackson (quad) to the practice field. Jackson was injured early in the Rams’ season-opening loss to the Phildelphia Eagles. The 240-pound back practiced on a limited basis.

DID NOT PARTICIPATE – G Ben Grubbs (toe), WR Lee Evans (ankle), WR David Reed, CB Jimmy Smith (ankle)
