There were no surprising no-shows at Ravens practice on Thursday as inside linebacker Zachary Orr, right tackle Rick Wagner, and cornerback Jimmy Smith were absent again.
Orr (neck), Wagner (concussion), and Smith (high right ankle sprain) did not practice on Wednesday. Coach John Harbaugh has already said that Smith probably will not play in Sunday's season finale at the Cincinnati Bengals, and it appears that Orr and Wagner are closer to joining him on the sideline.
Left guard Marshal Yanda returned after getting Wednesday off. But center Jeremy Zuttah appears to be getting his turn at a day off.
UPDATE: As expected, Orr, Wagner, and Smith sat out their second consecutive practice. Zuttah was given the day off.
Yanda returned to practice fully on Thursday. Rookie guard Alex Lewis fully participated for the second straight day.
Three Bengals starters missed their second consecutive practice. They were outside linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion, knee), running back Jeremy Hill (knee), and tight end Tyler Kroft (knee, ankle).
Two other starters in cornerback Adam Jones (ankle) and left guard Andrew Whitworth (biceps) were limited for the second straight day. Two more starters in left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (shoulder) and strong safety Shawn Williams (ribs) practiced on a limited basis.
