The Ravens ruled out Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones for the second consecutive week due to a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Jones is expected to be out four to six weeks, according to sources.
Five other players didn't practice Wednesday, including Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice (left hip flexor strain), inside linebacker Arthur Brown (left strained pectoral), cornerback Chykie Brown (right knee), defensive end Chris Canty (strained groin), center Ryan Jensen (foot surgery).
Wide receiver Deonte Thompson (sprained left foot) and rookie defensive tackle Brandon Williams (right big toe) were limited as they returned to practice.
For the Houston Texans, wide receiver Andre Johnson (concussion) didn't practice as well as left offensive tackle Duane Brown (toe). Johnson is responding well and is expected to play, according to Texans coach Gary Kubiak. Brown is regarded as a late-week decision.
Tight end Owen Daniels and cornerback Johnathan Joseph were rested for non-injury reasons and listed as limited.
Free safety Ed Reed (hip surgery) was limited, but expected to play Sunday.
Offensive guard Wade Smith (knee) was limited.
Participating fully: linebacker Brian Cushing (knee), running back Arian Foster (calf, cheste), tight end Garrett Graham (hip, groin), linebacker Joe Mays (quadriceps), cornerback Brice McCain (knee), center Chris Myers (back), offensive tackle Derek Newton (knee, calf), wide receiver DeVier Posey (Achilles, foot) and linebacker Darryl Sharpton (hip).
