Offensive line back to full strength?

Fans could see the return of the opening-day starting offensive tackles when the Ravens visit Heinz Field for Monday night's AFC North showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

During tonight's portion of practice open to the media, Jonathan Ogden and Adam Terry lined up with center Mike Flynn and guards Jason Brown and Ben Grubbs as the first-string offensive line.

Ogden hasn't started since the season opener when he sprained his left foot and re-aggravated a hyperextended big toe on that foot, but the 10-time Pro Bowler has not been listed on the team's injury report all week. Terry hasn't played since spraining his left ankle against the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 7.

Prior to last week's bye, Ogden and Terry had served on the scout team and impersonated opponents’ offensive linemen.

“It was encouraging to look up and see the prep line as our starters for the last four weeks,” coach Brian Billick said tongue-in-cheek earlier this week. “And they were prepping for the defense. So that was a pretty good feeling.”
