OWINGS MILLS — As the Baltimore Ravens practiced indoors for the third day in a row Thursday morning at their training complex, there were signs that tight end Daniel Wilcox and running back P.J. Daniels are close to returning from injuries.
Wilcox (sprained left ankle) and Daniels (hamstring) dressed out for the first time in weeks, but neither player is expected to play Saturday night against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.
Wilcox hasn’t practiced since Aug. 8 and Daniels got hurt prior to the preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Running back Cory Ross (illness) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (swollen knee) returned to practice. Ngata isn’t expected to play against the Redskins.
Meanwhile, cornerback Samari Rolle (sprained ankle), wide receiver Mark Clayton (sprained ankle) and offensive tackle Steve Edwards (knee) didn’t practice.
Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden (turf toe) and linebackers Dan Cody (knee surgery) and Mike Smith (shoulder surgery) remain on the physically unable to perform list.
The offensive line drew a few chuckles during their warmups as left guard Jason Brown fired out of his stance and yelled,"Redskins!" with feigned enthusiasm.
