Yanda, five others absent from Monday’s practice

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Fielding a smaller contingency of players after trimming the roster to 75 players, the Ravens were without Marshal Yanda and five others for Monday’s practice.

Yanda (knee) hasn’t worked since last Monday when he was undercut by linebacker Chavis Williams. The starting right guard finished the practice but missed the Ravens’ third preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars last Thursday. Coach John Harbaugh has said on two separate occasions that the injury isn’t considered to be serious.

Offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf), wide receiver Tommy Streeter (foot), linebackers Ricky Brown (hip) and Josh Bynes (back), and safety Sean Considine (concussion) were also absent from the portion of practice open to media.

Linebacker Sergio Kindle (shoulder) appeared to be practicing without a red non-contact jersey for the first time since sustaining a stinger in the second preseason game of the summer.

“He’s not a lock, but he’s done very well,” Harbaugh said. “This game will be important for him.”

Tight ends Ed Dickson (shoulder) and Dennis Pitta were practicing on a limited basis for the second straight workout after returning to the field Saturday. To no surprise, Harbaugh squashed any lingering chance of the tight ends seeing some action Thursday night against the St. Louis Rams.

“No chance,” Harbaugh said. “No chance of that. They’re not ready for that yet.”

The Ravens officially placed linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles tendon) and wide receiver David Reed (knee) on the reserve physically unable to perform list, meaning both will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. Defensive lineman Ryan McBean (ankle), safety Emanuel Cook (leg), and linebackers Darryl Blackstock (leg) and Stevie Baggs (leg) were placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday morning.
