[Baltimore Sun] Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey feels good, ‘ready to rock’ Sunday against Rams

Read Time:2 Minute, 24 Second

It’s Week 14 in the NFL and the Ravens, unlike two seasons ago, or even last year, are remarkably healthy. The latest example presented itself Wednesday with wide receiver Rashod Bateman the lone player absent from a chilly practice in Owings Mills.

Bateman was out with an illness, coach John Harbaugh said, and should be back Thursday.

More importantly for Baltimore (9-3), there were a handful of others back on the field ahead of Sunday’s showdown against the surging Los Angeles Rams (6-6) at M&T Bank Stadium. Most notable among them was cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who missed the past two games with a calf injury but was a full participant at practice.

“I feel good,” said Humphrey, who also missed the first four games of the season after undergoing foot surgery in mid-August. “Ready to rock.”

Humphrey was injured late in the Ravens’ Nov. 12 loss to the Cleveland Browns and his return comes at a good time. The Rams have won three in a row and feature one of the NFL’s best offenses, led by quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receivers Cooper Kupp, a former All-Pro, and rookie sensation Puka Nacua, who is seventh in the NFL in receiving yards (1,029) and leads all rookies in catches (77).

Inside linebackers Malik Harrison (groin) and rookie Trenton Simpson (concussion) and defensive tackle Justin Madubuike (concussion) also returned to practice for the Ravens, though Harrison and Madubuike were limited while Simpson was a full participant. Cornerback Damarion “Pepe” Williams (ankle), who was activated from injured reserve Nov. 21, also practiced fully.

In other words, the bye week couldn’t have come at a better time for the Ravens, who were starting to drag, according to running back Gus Edwards.

“Our guys are in good spirits,” Harbaugh said. “I think the time off will be good for us mentally and physically as well.”

The Rams, meanwhile, held a walk-through practice Wednesday and Nacua, who suffered a shoulder injury in a win over the Browns on Sunday, was limited.

Five others did not practice for Los Angeles: tight end Tyler Higbee (neck), defensive back Quentin Lake (hamstring), outside linebackers Michael Hoecht (knee) and Byron Young (knee) and offensive lineman Rob Havenstein (rest). Defensive tackle Larrell Murchison (elbow) was a full participant.
