Zbikowski doubtful vs. Jaguars, Evans and Grubbs out

Starting strong safety Tom Zbikowski was listed as doubtful for the Ravens' contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday night.

Zbikowski, who is dealing with symptoms stemming from the concussion he sustained in the Ravens' 17-point win against the New York Jets on Oct. 2, returned to practice Saturday after sitting out Friday's session. Zbikowski, who practiced on a limited basis Thursday, still has not been cleared for contact, according to coach John Harbaugh.

The team added starting wide receiver Lee Evans (left ankle) and starting left guard Ben Grubbs (strained ligaments in right toe) to the list of players who will not play Monday night. Evans and Grubbs – both of whom did not practice all week – will join inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) and rookie running back Anthony Allen (thigh) on the sideline.

Cornerback Chris Carr (left hamstring) was limited for the third consecutive day and is questionable for Monday night.

Outside linebacker Jarret Johnson (back) and rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith (high left ankle sprain) fully practiced for the second straight day, and both are probable. Wide receiver/kick returner David Reed was limited by a finger injury, but he is probable for Monday night.

For the Jaguars, starting right tackle Eben Britton (back) missed his third consecutive day of practice and is doubtful against the Ravens.

Strong safety Dawan Landry, a former Raven for five seasons, was limited by a thigh injury for the second straight day, but is regarded as probable.

Left tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder), right tackle Guy Whimper (hip), defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (knee), outside linebacker Clint Session (elbow) and cornerback Derek Cox (groin) participated fully for the second straight day and are listed as probable.

Jacksonville removed running back Maurice Jones-Drew, fullback Greg Jones, defensive end Aaron Kampman and cornerback Rashean Mathis – all of whom were listed as dealing with non-injury related concerns – from the injury report.
