OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens were without two offensive starters during Wednesday’s practice as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and right tackle Austin Howard are dealing with knee injuries.
Maclin’s status is in greater doubt as he hasn’t practiced or played since injuring his left knee in the first quarter of the Week 15 win at Cleveland. Head coach John Harbaugh offered few specifics about the veteran wideout’s progress during his Tuesday press conference as the Ravens look to clinch a playoff spot with a win over Cincinnati this weekend.
“It’s just a rehab thing. I don’t think there’s going to be any major update,” Harbaugh said. “It’s a healing issue. Jeremy has always been a quick healer, so that’s a good thing. It will be maybe this game [against the Bengals]. I think he has a chance. We will just have to see as it gets closer to game time.”
Howard briefly left Saturday’s win over Indianapolis with a hyperextended left knee, but he was able to return after missing only four snaps.
Defensive tackle Brandon Williams (back), wide receiver Mike Wallace (knee), and fullback Patrick Ricard (neck) were listed as limited participants in Wednesday’s practice.
The Bengals were without linebacker Vontaze Burfict (shoulder), running back Joe Mixon (ankle), and cornerback Williams Jackson (knee) during their Wednesday workout.
