Justin Forsett's knee injury not considered serious

Ravens running back Justin Forsett warms up prior to the game against the San Diego Chargers at M&T Bank Stadium.

Although Ravens running back Justin Forsett didn't practice Wednesday due to a minor knee injury, he is expected to start and have his usual workload Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Forsett has rushed for a career-high 1,009 yards and seven touchdowns this season, surpassing the 100-yard mark each of the past three games.


"Just resting up, regular soreness," Forsett said when asked about not practicing Wednesday. "Especially coming into December, just trying to take care of the body and take care of the little nicks I've gotten over the course of the year."

When asked if his knee would affect his status for Sunday, Forsett replied: "No, I don't think so."


Meanwhile, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said wide receivers Torrey Smith (right knee) and Marlon Brown (concussion) are making progress. Both got hurt Sunday. Brown is still awaiting clearance under the NFL concussion testing protocol.

Center Jeremy Zuttah didn't practice due to a lingering ankle injury, but downplayed the severity and said he expects to practice this week and play Sunday.

"Yeah, it's cool," he said.

Tight end Crockett Gillmore (back), cornerback Tramain Jacobs, linebacker Albert McClellan (thigh injuries) and linebacker Courtney Upshaw (hand) were limited.

Rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley (wrist) participated fully.

Rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro participated fully for the first time since the River Hill graduate pulled his hamstring against the Cincinnati Bengals. He missed the past four games.

"It's great being out there, just playing scout team stuff, catching passes, it's good," Campanaro said. "I just got to work hard and work my way back in. I haven't had any setbacks. It's just been progressing week by week.

"It's feeling pretty good. I still can't push it too much. You have to worry about it a little bit, but it's feeling good."
