The Ravens produced a near-perfect injury report Thursday as free safety Ed Reed was the only player listed.
The eight-time Pro Bowler was limited in practice for the second straight day by the left ankle injury he sustained in the waning seconds of the team’s 20-13 win against the Houston Texans in Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff round.
The New England Patriots, the Ravens’ opponent in Sunday’s AFC championship game, released a lengthy injury report headlined by the return of quarterback Tom Brady. Brady, who did not practice Wednesday because of an injured left shoulder, fully participated in Thursday’s session.
Cornerback Kyle Arrington (foot) and center Dan Connolly (groin) fully practiced for the second consecutive day.
Nine starters were limited for the second straight day. They were: wide receivers Wes Welker (knee) and Deion Branch (knee), linebackers Rob Ninkovich (hip) and Brandon Spikes (concussion), safeties Patrick Chung (knee) and James Ihedigbo (shoulder), left guard Logan Mankins (knee), right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/foot) and defensive tackle Kyle Love (ankle).
Tight end Aaron Hernandez (concussion) also practiced on a limited basis for the second consecutive day.
