Michael Oher downplayed the severity of a sprained ankle that sidelined him in practice Wednesday and the Ravens right tackle returned to practice Thursday.

"I just had a little sprain," Oher said before the practice. "I'm good, everything's good. I'll be back out there today. Really tough guy, whatever it takes for the team."

Left guard Kelechi Osemele (back) was the only player who was not present in the portion of Thursday's practice open to media.

Heading into Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Cleveland Browns rank third in the NFL with 26 sacks. Led by rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo's team-high four sacks, 15 Browns players have at least one sack.

"They try to get after the quarterback," Oher said. "It means every player they put in can get to the quarterback, that's what that's saying. They can rush the passer."

The Ravens allowed a season-low one sack against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7.

The Browns run an aggressive scheme under defensive coordinator Ray Horton, bringing pressure from all angles.

"You can see their sacks are spread out amongst pretty much all of them, we have to do a good job of being on the same page with our protections and winning our one-on-one matchups," Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe said. "I approach every week the game as far as defensive schemes, because every team has a different way of attacking you. You have to unlock those locks with the keys to those defenses. That's the challenge you face every single week."
