Ravens veteran offensive guard Jah Reid said he expects to return to play this season after breaking his hand and undergoing surgery prior to a win this month over the Tennessee Titans.
Reid said he anticipates returning to practice within the next few weeks. Reid remains on the active roster and wasn't placed on injured reserve.
"It's getting better, it's not that long of a recovery, only a few weeks," Reid said. "I lucked out. I got a good surgeon. Everything is in order. I should be ready to go pretty soon."
The 6-foot-7, 320-pound 2011 third-round draft pick from Central Florida played in two games this season, against the Indianapolis Colts and the Atlanta Falcons, but was a healthy scratch in every other game except for the Titans game. Reid is in the final season of a four-year, $2.6 million rookie contract.
Reid said he injured his hand blocking outside linebacker Pernell McPhee.
"It was at practice, doing one-on-ones," Reid said. "Pernell's a strong guy, strong enough to break a bone in my hand."
