Ravens receiver Jeremy Maclin has worn a red noncontact jersey since aggravating a shoulder injury against the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 8, but his absence from Saturday’s practice was not related, according to coach John Harbaugh.

“Jeremy, we gave him a day, a rest day today, and he’ll be ready to go Monday night,” Harbaugh said. As if to back up his confidence, Maclin is not on the team’s final injury report of the week.


Like Maclin, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs – who was listed as a limited participant in Friday’s session because of an ankle injury – was given Saturday off. Suggs as well as cornerback Jimmy Smith (Achilles tendon) are questionable for Monday night’s game against the Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium.

Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon always believed he'd be great, even when no one else saw it

Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon sometimes bristles at the questions he's always faced about his NFL potential. But he's leaned on his powerful self-belief to become a versatile young standout on one of the league's best defenses.

Smith (Achilles tendon) joined linebacker C.J. Mosley (ankle) in returning to practice after sitting out Wednesday and Friday. But their presence Saturday suggests that both starters will be available for Monday night’s game against the Houston Texans.

Right tackle Austin Howard (knee) and left tackle Ronnie Stanley (concussion) practiced fully for the second consecutive day and are also listed as questionable. Running back Terrance West (left calf) was a full participant all week and is questionable as well.

The team did rule out rookie guard Jermaine Eluemunor (shoulder). The 2017 fifth-round draft pick has not practiced since Wednesday.

The Texans will play Monday night without one starter in wide receiver Will Fuller V (ribs), who did not practice all week.

Seven starters were upgraded to full participation and will play. They are right guard Jeff Allen (hand), left tackle Chris Clark (knee), outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (ankle), free safety Andre Hal (knee), defensive end Joel Heath (knee), wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and cornerback Kareem Jackson (shoulder).
