Elvis Dumervil non-committal on his availability at Dallas

Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has been sacked just 13 times thus far, which is tied for the sixth-fewest among NFL starters. The Ravens are hoping to add to that number, especially if Elvis Dumervil (foot) returns for Sunday's game at AT&T Stadium.

The outside linebacker took part fully in Wednesday's practice, marking his first appearance on the field since playing on Oct. 9 in a 16-10 loss to the Washington Redskins. But the 32-year-old, who said he was "feeling great," declined to say whether he will play against Dallas, deferring a status update to coach John Harbaugh.

"That's something you've got to ask Coach Harbs," he said. "I really don't know. I'm just going out there and really working my craft and doing what I do."

Dumervil, who has sat out the past four games, underwent foot surgery in the offseason and was not activated from the team's physically unable to perform list until Aug. 22. After sitting out the first three games of the season, he played against the Oakland Raiders and Washington, but did not record a sack or a tackle.

Dumervil said the issue was regaining strength in his foot, and said the foot feels much better than during his first attempt to play.

"We've just been really working in the rehab room with the trainers and the weight room guys," he said. "We've been really working like two-a-days to try and get as much as we can. We made a tremendous amount of progress in the past few weeks. So I really feel good."

Fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs joked that he has seen this game from Dumervil before.

"Well, he came back out before and teased us a little bit," Suggs said. "… Hopefully, we get him out there."

Dumervil, who set the franchise record for sacks with 17 in 2014, was not sure how much he'll be able do Sunday. But he said he will be prepared for any kind of workload given to him by Harbaugh.

"Whatever he asks me to do, I'll be ready," he said. "That's all I can tell you."
