Samari Rolle returned to Ravens practice today for the first time in nearly two weeks, but it's highly unlikely that the cornerback will be cleared to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Rolle, who has not practiced since Nov. 1 because of a recurrence of an undisclosed illness that sidelined him for three games earlier this season, stretched and participated in drills with the rest of the secondary, but the team did not upgrade his "out" status.
"Anytime you get Samari back, it's a good thing," coach Brian Billick said. "He's feeling better, and he's gone through evaluations. We're hopeful for next week [against the San Diego Chargers]."
The opening-night secondary of Rolle, cornerback Chris McAlister, free safety Ed Reed and strong safety Dawan Landry has not started since Sept. 16 against the New York Jets.
