Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs was not present for the media viewing portion of Ravens practice Thursday, in keeping with the custom of giving the 12th-year linebacker the final practice of the week off.
Veteran linebacker Daryl Smith and tight end Owen Daniels both received customary days off Wednesday and returned Thursday.
Left tackle Eugene Monroe and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan both practiced for the third straight day. Monroe injured his ankle in Week 16 against the Houston Texans, and Jernigan suffered a foot/ankle injury against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17.
