OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Returning to the practice field after the Thanksgiving holiday, the Ravens look to be in excellent shape from a health standpoint as they made final preparations for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
Rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro is the only Baltimore player listed as much as questionable for Week 13.
All players on the 53-man roster were present and working during the portion of practice open to reporters on Friday morning. Campanaro made his return to the practice field this week after a month-long absence due to a hamstring injury, but the Ravens training staff is bringing him along very slowly in fear of a mishap, making it unlikely that he’ll play on Sunday.
“He’s coming along. It’s a process with a hamstring,” head coach John Harbaugh said. “You can’t really push that thing so much. What usually happens with a hamstring is they’re pretty conservative and then all of a sudden they come back and tell you he’s ready to go. He did practice this week. It wasn’t all the time as fast as we want it to be, because we don’t want a setback. I imagine I’ll find out Sunday if he’s ready to go or not and if he is, we’ll see. That’s really the best we can do right now.”
Linebackers Terrell Suggs (foot) and Pernell McPhee (shoulder) are listed as probable after both were full participants on Friday. Reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid has also been a full participant all week after missing the last two games due to a broken hand.
With the disadvantage of a short week after playing a Monday night game in New Orleans, the Ravens sporting such a clean injury report is encouraging as they play the 7-4 Chargers at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Ravens lead the all-time regular-season series by a 5-4 margin and have a 2-0 advantage playing in Baltimore.
The Chargers officially ruled out nose tackle Ryan Carrethers (elbow) and listed linebacker Andrew Gachkar (knee) as doubtful for Sunday’s game. Starting running back Ryan Mathews (shoulder) is probable.
The referee for Sunday’s game will be Walt Anderson.
According to Weather.com, Sunday’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid-50s and winds up to eight miles per hour.
