Arthur Jones' personal odyssey during Hurricane Sandy ended well as the Ravens' defensive lineman was able to return to Baltimore in time for practice Wednesday.

Jones was one of a few players to miss practice Monday due to travel issues caused by the storm.

Jones got stuck at the Dallas airport Sunday and was initially was told he wouldn't be able to fly out until Wednesday night,

"Even that wouldn't be guaranteed," Jones said. "Obviously, I couldn't do that. So, I spent the night in Dallas."

Jones eventually flew to Raleigh, N.C., Monday morning and rented a car to make the drive back to Baltimore.

"The next morning I found the first thing smoking to North Carolina," Jone said. "The drive to Baltimore was crazy. There were about eight accidents I saw. It was nuts."

Meanwhile, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he had to jumpstart his generator at his house during the storm.

"I found out that you've got to keep your battery charged on your generator," Harbaugh said. "I wasn't aware of that. So, I was out there in a driving hurricane jumpstarting my generator. It worked, though. It started right up. My wife was greatly surprised we were able to get that fixed."
