Lorenzo Taliaferro and C.J. Mosley return to practice

Three starters not participating in final full practice before Bengals game.

Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro returned to practice Friday after missing the previous two days with a foot injury.

Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, who wasn’t present Thursday for a non-injury reason, was also back on the field two days before the Ravens (0-2) face the Cincinnati Bengals (2-0) at M&T Bank Stadium.

However, starting safety Will Hill was not present for the practice. He hasn’t been on the injury report and the reason for his absence is unclear at this point.

Starting left tackle Eugene Monroe, who hasn’t practiced in over two weeks after sustaining a concussion in the Ravens’ regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos, remained sidelined. It appears he’s likely to miss a second straight game. James Hurst will start in his place.

Veteran defensive end Chris Canty also missed a third consecutive practice because of a calf injury. Earlier in the week, Canty was optimistic that he would be able to play against the Bengals. However, under coach John Harbaugh, players who don’t practice all week traditionally don’t play on Sundays.

Rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who returned to practice Thursday for the first time since July 30, also was on the field for a second straight day. He’s not expected to play Sunday.

The Ravens will release their final injury report before the game later this afternoon.
