The Ravens must be the healthiest of the four teams taking part in Wild Card Weekend.
Of course, health is relative at this point in the season, but the Ravens listed 11 players on Thursday’s report, all fully practicing. The four starters who were listed as limited Wednesday — LB Tavares Gooden (groin), DT Haloti Ngata (ankle), FS Ed Reed (groin) and OG Marshal Yanda (knee) — all returned.
Reed was able to return in the regular-season finale after missing the previous four games. Gooden hasn’t played since Week 14 against the Lions, with rookie Dannell Ellerbe starting the last three games on the inside next to Ray Lewis.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t speak to the media Thursday, so no new updates were given. Although one might not have needed to be given, considering the health of the Ravens headed into Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
