Ravens Pro Bowl nose tackle Haloti Ngata is dressed for practice today and did some light jogging during the early portion open to reporters.
Ngata has a sprained left knee with no ligament damage, an injury similar to what sidelined him during Super Bowl XLVII against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.
Ngata did a little bit of high-knee action at one point to stretch out his legs. He then played catch with the other Ravens defensive linemen. His availability for Sunday's game against the New York Jets is undetermined.
Ngata was held out of the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears last Sunday after attempting to practice last Friday and ultimately not participating.
Meanwhile, tight end Dennis Pitta looked relatively spry doing individual drills, running routes and catching passes from tight ends coach Wade Harman. Pitta was able to run and cut without any apparent difficulty on the Ravens' practice field.
Pitta remains on injured reserve-designated to return after undergoing surgery during training camp for a fractured, dislocated right hip.
Pitta is eligible to be activated at any time and is in a three-week window to either be activated or be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
