Running back Lorenzo Taliaferro and defensive end Chris Canty were the only two new absentees as the Ravens resumed practice this week ahead of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, while wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) and left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) remained out.

Taliaferro, who had 46 total yards and a touchdown Sunday as he assumed an important role late in the game, missed nearly a month with a knee injury before returning for Sunday's game, and was listed as having a foot injury on Wednesday's injury report. A foot injury ended his rookie season last December.

Canty, the veteran defensive end, left Sunday's game with an undisclosed injury in the second half. According to the injury report, he was out with a calf injury Wednesday, and said he's "optimistic" that he'll play against the Bengals.

"I can't make any promises," Canty said. "The coaches and medical staff will probably be able to tell you more, but I'm optimistic about the opportunity to be out there. We'll just see what happens."

Perriman and Monroe missed the game in Oakland because of injuries. Perriman hasn't practiced in nearly eight weeks with a sprained knee, while Monroe has been out since suffering a concussion on the first drive against the Denver Broncos in Week 1.

Coach John Harbaugh said Monday he didn't have an update on Perriman, nor did he have one on Monroe Wednesday.

Cornerback Rashaan Melvin, who has been dealing with a thigh issue, was present, as were linebackers Albert McClellan (arm) and C.J. Mosley (knee).
