Ravens being careful with Michael Campanaro, plus other injury notes

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team is taking every precaution as wide receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill) recovers from a hamstring injury suffered in the Ravens' Week 8 road loss against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"He's coming along," Harbaugh said. "It's a process with a hamstring, you can't really push that thing too much. What usually happens with a hamstring is you're pretty conservative, then all of a sudden they come back and they tell you he's ready to go."


Campanaro returned to practice Wednesday, exactly one month after the injury, and was limited the entire week.

"II imagine I'll find out Sunday if he's ready to go or not, and if he is, we'll see," Harbaugh said.


Outside linebackers Terrell Suggs (foot) and Pernell McPhee (shoulder), along with guard-tackle Jah Reid (hand) are listed as probable.

Jackson nears return

Since he went on the injured reserve-designated to return list Oct. 8 because of a toe injury, Ravens cornerback Asa Jackson has had one date in mind: Dec. 7. That's the day the Ravens play the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium and Jackson is eligible to return to game action.

"It gives you a date in mind, something to work toward," Jackson said Friday.

Jackson, 24, took part in and finished his first full week of practice and he remains optimistic that he'll be able to return for the Dolphins game.

"I'm hoping so," he said. "I'm just going to keep working and see what the coaches tell me and see what the trainers tell me and do whatever I can do in order to put myself in position to play starting next week."

Jackson started four of the first five games for the Ravens, making 18 tackles with one pass defended.
