Three-fourths of the Ravens' starting linebacker corps was limited in practice Wednesday as Ray Lewis (stinger), Jarret Johnson (left shoulder) and Tavares Gooden (shoulder/head) dealt with their respective ailments. Defensive tackle Justin Bannan (knee) was also limited.
Tight end Todd Heap (back) and wide receiver Kelley Washington (groin) were limited.
Defensive end Trevor Pryce did not practice due to illness. An illness also kept backup quarterback Troy Smith away from the practice field.
The New England Patriots, Sunday's opponent, has their share of concerns. A pair of starters in nose tackle Vince Wilfork and right offensive tackle Nick Kaczur did not practice due to ankle injuries.
Three starters in wide receivers Randy Moss (back) and Wes Welker (knee) and cornerback Shawn Springs (knee) were limited. Quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder) participated fully.
