Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones returned to practice for the first time since being stricken with a viral infection that caused a buildup of fluid near his heart.

Now that it's been diagnosed and treated, Jones has rejoined his teammates at practice on a limited basis.


Ravens right offensive tackle Michael Oher reinforced the positive prognosis on his sprained right ankle by participating fully in practice Wednesday afternoon.

Although Oher is limping slightly, he appears to be on track to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns despite characterizing the injury among the most serious sprains of his entire football career.

Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones was ruled out. He's sidelined four to six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Not practicing: rookie center Ryan Jensen (foot surgery) and defensive lineman Brandon Williams (right big toe).

Running back Bernard Pierce was limited with a thigh injury.

Not practicing for the Cleveland Browns, Sunday's opponent: guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle), defensive end Ahtyba Rubin (calf), safety T.J. Ward (shoulder).

Limited: outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (lung), wide receiver Travis Benjamin (thigh) and cornerback Buster Skrine (shoulder).
