Practices have been completed on Thursday for the Baltimore Ravens and the Indianapolis Colts, and both teams had key players either miss practice or take part in limited fashion. The Colts look to be a bit more banged up than the Ravens, with four players still missing practice on Thursday afternoon.
The Ravens had only one player that was unable to take part on Thursday, as fullback Vonta Leach sat out with knee and ankle issues. Leach was a limited participant on Wednesday afternoon.
Baltimore had ten players limited on Thursday, including running back Anthony Allen (head), tight end Billy Bajema (head), wide receiver Tandon Doss (ankle), defensive back Chris Johnson (thigh), defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), nose tackle Haloti Ngata (knee), running back Bernard Pierce (ankle), safety Bernard Pollard (chest), tackle Jah Reid (toe) and offensive lineman Marshal Yanda (shoulder/knee). All ten limited players were also limited on Wednesday.
The Colts had four players who did not practice on Thursday, but Dwight Freeney was no longer listed on the injury report after missing for non-injury related reasons the day before. Out on Thursday were linebacker Robert Mathis (non-injury related), tackle Bradley Sowell (illness), guard Joe Reitz (head) and defensive tackle Kellen Heard (illness).
Indianapolis had no players listed as limited for Thursday's practice session, but six players were upgraded from limited to full on Thursday: Tom Zbikowski, A.Q. Shipley, Cory Redding, Winston Justice, Antonio Johnson and Delone Carter.
