The Ravens offense almost certainly will get left tackle Jared Gaither back for the must-win Oakland game. The three-year veteran missed the last three games with a foot injury, but practiced three times this week and is listed as probable on the final injury report.

With Gaither out of the lineup this season, the Ravens have lost three of five games, and the two wins came against the lowly Lions and Bears. Gaither's return will send rookie Michael Oher back to right tackle and Oniel Cousins back to the bench.

It also appears the Ravens will get back safety Ed Reed, who has missed four games with a groin or hip injury. Reed practiced this week as well and is expected to be able to take a dozen snaps or more in Oakland. Reed, however, is still listed as questionable.

Other questionables include wide receiver Derrick Mason (knee), linebackers Tavares Gooden (groin) and Terrell Suggs (thigh), cornerback Cary Williams (thigh) and Cousins (knee).

Gaither, linebacker Jarret Johnson (back, knee) and defensive end Trevor Pryce (illness) are probable.

The Raiders list quarterback Bruce Gradkowski (knees) as out and running back Justin Fargas (knee) and tackle Langston Walker (ankle) as doubtful. Safety Tyvon Branch (hip), defensive end Greg Ellis (knee), wide-out Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring) as questionable.
