Left side of Ravens offensive line uncertain for Sunday

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Preparing to face one of the best pass rushers in the NFL, the Ravens don’t know what the left side of their offensive line will look like against Oakland on Sunday.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (foot) and left guard Alex Lewis (concussion) were absent from practice for the second straight day, leaving their status up in the air for Week 4.

After being spotted in a walking boot in the locker room on Wednesday, Stanley was not wearing one on Thursday despite not talking to reporters. The 2016 first-round pick played in Week 3 despite missing a day of practice, but the foot issue has lingered, a definite concern with 2015 Pro Bowl defensive end Khalil Mack looming on the opposite side of the line of scrimmage on Sunday.

Lewis sustained a concussion late in the fourth quarter in Jacksonville and was replaced by Ryan Jensen at left guard. James Hurst is listed as the primary backup at left tackle on the Week 4 depth chart released by the public relations staff.

“We felt very good about Alex and Ronnie, and we will see what the trainers and doctors say,” offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said. “John [Harbaugh] determines at the end of the week how that goes, but we feel good about the guys we have.”

Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee) and wide receiver Kamar Aiken (thigh) were full participants on Thursday after missing the opening practice of the week. Running back Kenneth Dixon (knee) was a limited participant for the second straight day.

Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) practiced fully once again and confirmed that he will make his season debut on Sunday. Veteran teammate Terrell Suggs broke the news on Wednesday that Dumervil would play against the Raiders.

“I guess my guy already said it,” said Dumervil as he laughed. “‘That is what we are shooting for.’ I can’t use that anymore. I’m excited to go out in front of our crowd.”

Meanwhile, the Raiders were without starting right tackle Menelik Watson (calf) for the second consecutive day of practice.
