OWINGS MILLS - Ravens Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda declared himself 'good to go' for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.
Yanda injured his knee during Baltimore's win against the Cleveland Browns this past weekend. He briefly went to the locker room before returning to the game. He was on the field for all but five of the Ravens' 66 offensive snaps.
"I just got rolled up a little bit," Yanda said. "I'm fine, though."
An MRI of Yanda's knee revealed no significant damage.
"I'm fine," Yanda said. "I'll be good to go [for Oakland]."
McPHEE IFFY: Defensive end Pernell McPhee sounded skeptical regarding his status for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
McPhee (knee/thigh) was sidelined for Baltimore's win against the Browns.
"It's all [head coach John Harbaugh's] decision," McPhee said. "He's going to determine whether he wants me to go out or not, [but] I feel good. I feel better physically."
McPhee underwent two surgical procedures on his right knee during the offseason. And after a rookie year during which he recorded six sacks, McPhee has just a half-sack through the first half of this season. He acknowledged last week that his physical ailments "have a lot to do with that."
"I know what's going on with me and I don't really have a lot of explosion right now and I'm kind of slow off the ball," McPhee said last week.
REID READY: With starting left guard Bobbie Williams battling an ankle injury he suffered against Cleveland, reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid acknowledged that he's preparing for a potentially expanded role against Oakland.
"Yeah, definitely," Reid said. "Every week I prepare as if I'm going to start the game and play a little bit."
Reid was inactive for the Ravens' first seven games while battling a lingering calf injury, but he was on the field for nine snaps against the Browns.
Reid was a third-round pick of Baltimore in last year's draft.
INJURY REPORT: Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (shoulder/knee), safety Ed Reed (shoulder/knee), Yanda (knee/ankle), Williams (ankle) and McPhee (knee/thigh) were all non-participants in Wednesday's practice.
Left tackle Michael Oher (ankle), cornerback Jimmy Smith (abs), linebacker Josh Bynes (thigh) and wide receivers Jacoby Jones (toe) and David Reed (knee) each practiced on a limited basis.
Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (ankle), middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (finger), nose tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu (knee), long snapper Morgan Cox (shoulder) and safeties Bernard Pollard (chest) and Sean Considine (chest) were all full participants.
ROSTER MOVE: The Ravens signed tight end/defensive end Alex Silvestro to their practice squad and released quarterback Dennis Dixon.
Silvestro spent most of the last two seasons on the New England Patriots' practice squad after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent last summer.
Silvestro was a collegiate defensive end at Rutgers but was switched to tight end during this past offseason.
He's listed as a tight end by Baltimore.
OFT-FLAGGED: Harbaugh emphasized he's "not happy" with the Ravens' AFC-leading 66 penalties.
Baltimore has been penalized an average of more than eight times per game.
Yanda and cornerback Jimmy Smith have each been flagged a team-high six times.
"We have to clean that up," Harbaugh said. "We're capable of doing it. We've never been a highly penalized team. That's something I know we are going to do better."
