Ravens CB Jimmy Smith, DE Calais Campbell, six others miss practice ahead of game vs. Browns

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith and defensive end Calais Campbell were among eight players who didn’t practice Thursday as the team prepares for Monday night’s road game against the Cleveland Browns.

Smith was sidelined with the same groin injury that kept him out of Tuesday night’s 34-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Smith wouldn’t have to practice to play Monday, but, “I’d like to see him practice if he can. We’re just going to see how he feels with it.”

Campbell, who was active Tuesday after a calf strain and a positive COVID-19 test sidelined him for a month, did not practice because of a non-injury-related reason. Harbaugh said Campbell, who played 23 snaps against Dallas, “got through it healthy.”

Defensive back/linebacker Anthony Levine Sr. (abdomen), cornerback Tramon Williams (thigh) and rookie defensive tackle Broderick Washington (concussion) also did not practice. Outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, cornerback Marcus Peters and defensive end Derek Wolfe were sidelined for non-injury related reasons.

Offensive linemen Jack Conklin (knee) and JC Tretter (knee) were limited. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) was a full participant.

Extra points

>> The Indianapolis Colts signed offensive lineman Will Holden to their active roster off the Ravens’ practice squad. Holden played 30 snaps against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11 before testing positive for COVID-19 and landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, forcing him to miss the team’s past two games.

>> Ravens guard Bradley Bozeman is the team’s nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. The award, first established in 1970 and named after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field. Campbell won the award last year as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

>> Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday that his extended statewide curfew between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. will not apply to the Browns and their home games. DeWine issued a variance that will also apply to the Bengals, the Columbus Crew and the University of Cincinnati. DeWine also said about 12,000 fans will be allowed at FirstEnergy Stadium for the Browns game.
