Three Ravens who missed Monday's 26-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals because of injury returned Wednesday, though left tackle Eugene Monroe did not practice in the first walk-through practice of the week.

Starting safety Kendrick Lewis (knee) and his top backup, Terrence Brooks (thumb), were back at practice after missing one and two games, respectively.


Lewis said he had some "positive results" with his injured left knee in his first practice back, and called it a blessing that he was able to practice barely 10 days after what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

"I'm blessed that the injury wasn't worse than what it was," Lewis said. "God was with me, twisted up like that, and to come out of it and make it after you see all these injuries, all these guys with ACL injuries."

Brooks said he tested his thumb by jamming people and was wearing a small brace, but did not try to catch a ball.

Rookie tight end Maxx Williams, who did not practice last week and missed the game with what were described as knee and ankle injuries, also practiced Wednesday. The injury report listed Lewis, Brooks, Williams, and left guard Kelechi Osemele (knee) as limited.

Osemele left the Cardinals game in the second half, but said he felt "close to 100 percent" after practice. Monroe was on the field, but declined to comment on his injury and was listed on the injury report as a nonparticipant.

Cornerback Tray Walker, who left the game and entered the concussion protocol in the fourth quarter Monday, and wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who is still dealing with a sprained PCL suffered in training camp, were the only other players not practicing.
