Running back Bernard Pierce (knee) and cornerback Asa Jackson (thigh) were the only Ravens not participating in the early portion of Thursday's practice open to reporters.
Pierce didn't have a carry in Saturday's playoff game against the Denver Broncos after the third quarter. However, he said Wednesday that he will play Sunday in the AFC championship game against the New England Patriots. Pierce was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Jackson was the only Ravens' player not to participate in Wednesday's practice.
Running back Anthony Allen and center/guard Gino Gradkowski, who were limited Wednesday with concussion symptoms, appeared to be full participants today. They also were not wearing the red non-contact jerseys.
The Ravens are expected to be at full strength Sunday.
