An MRI taken Thursday on Ben Grubbs’ right toe revealed no new concerns, and the guard hasn’t been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.
“Everything looked good in there,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “We just wanted to make sure everything was OK. Those toes are tough. There’s a chance that he’ll play.”
Grubbs missed the first game of his career last Sunday, ending a 65-game streak. He hasn’t practiced all week leading up to the St. Louis game.
“Today, I may not feel it, but Sunday, I may,” Grubbs said. “It depends on how I feel at that time. I know the plays and I understand that practice makes perfect. But if I’m able to play, I’d like to play.”
In Grubbs’ absence Sunday, Mark LeVoir started at left guard. If Grubbs can’t go Sunday, it’s possible that Andre Gurode makes his first start this season at that position. Gurode has been getting work with the starting unit in practice this week.
“He looks good,” Harbaugh said. “He’s done a good job. He’s a big strong guy, very mobile.”
