Five of the six players who did not practice Wednesday and Thursday missed practice Friday, and four of them are likely to sit out Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Free safety Ed Reed (strained hip/foot), wide receiver Mark Clayton (tweaked right hamstring), offensive tackle Jared Gaither (foot), tight end L.J. Smith (akle) and offensive lineman David Hale (concussion) did not practice for the third consecutive day, and Reed, Clayton, Smith and Hale are listed as doubtful for Sunday.
Linebacker Terrell Suggs missed practice to attend a court hearing, but he is questionable for the game against Lions because of a sprained ligament in his right knee. Gaither is also questionable as are linebacker Jarret Johnson and defensive tackle Brandon McKinney. Johnson, who sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday due to injuries to his left shoulder and back, was upgraded to limited participation, and McKinney was limited for the second straight day.
Kicker Billy Cundiff (concussion) was upgraded from limited to full participation. He and quarterback Joe Flacco (knee/hip), who practiced fully for the third straight day, are listed as probable.
For the Detroit Lions, defensive tackle Grady Jackson (knee) was upgraded to limited participation after not practicing Thursday. Jackson and four other starters who were limited for the third consecutive day – linebacker Ernie Sims (hamstring), defensive end Dewayne White (toe), rookie free safety Louis Delmas (ankle) and punter Nick Harris (left knee) – are probable for Sunday.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford (separated left shoulder) did not practice for the third consecutive day and is doubtful. Starting offensive tackle Daniel Loper (back) was limited for the third straight day and is questionable.
Cornerback Will James (neck) practiced fully for the second consecutive day and is probable.
