It’s more than just good news for the Baltimore Ravens that RB Willis McGahee took part in a full practice on Thursday. McGahee, who has been hit by chest and eye injuries the last two weeks while still trying to fully recover from offseason knee surgery, appears to be as healthy as he has all season.
“You know, [McGahee is] healthy,” Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said Thursday. “And he was healthy last week. He’s not 100 percent, but probably there aren’t many backs at this stage who are. But he’s healthier this week than he was last week, and he’s getting ready to play. I think he’ll have a heck of a ball game.”
Linebacker Ray Lewis was held out of practice on Thursday with a knee injury after he took part on a limited basis on Wednesday. The Ravens also practiced without starting OTs Adam Terry (knee) and Jared Gaither (knee). Terry, who was injured during the second quarter of last week’s loss to Tennessee, sat out for the second straight day. He could likely be a game-time decision against the Colts.
“Boy, he looks a lot better today than he did yesterday,” said Cameron. “He wants to play, and we’ll see how much work he gets done. We got a little walk-through work in. We’ll see what tomorrow holds, Saturday, and it’ll probably go right up to the game. I’m sure someone will need to know prior to that, they’ll know. But he’s getting ready to play.”
