After the Ravens’ 20-14 win against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, Billy Cundiff said his balky left calf was much improved from the previous week.
Coach John Harbaugh agreed with the kicker’s assessment during his weekly news conference Monday, but he also said he wants to see Cundiff practice before declaring him ready to contribute against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
“Billy Cundiff is doing really well,” Harbaugh said. “So we’ll have to see about this week. I want to see him practice. So we’ll know more Wednesday, Thursday.”
Cundiff’s return could present the team with a dilemma as Cundiff could be at risk of aggravating the injury during a game and Shayne Graham converted both field-goal attempts against the Browns. But Harbaugh made his stance clear on the idea of keeping two kickers on the active roster.
“We’re not going to carry two kickers into the game if Billy’s kicking,” he said.
