Ravens quarterback Bryn Renner said he helped out on both scout team and with the first-team offense Wednesday, his first day back on the practice squad since September.

"It feels like I haven't missed a beat," Renner said. "It's a great opportunity to come in and help the guys any way I can. I'm just happy to be here again."

Renner was a preseason fan favorite who won the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints with a leaping late touchdown run, and completed 43 of 65 passes for 409 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the preseason.

He began the regular season on the practice squad, but was cut while the team was staying in California before the Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders so the Ravens could add a practice squad offensive lineman, Tony Hills.

They didn't need to summon Renner back until now, after Joe Flacco's season-ending knee injury and a host of minor injuries to new starter Matt Schaub. In the interim, Renner said he has had a lot of workouts.

"I've been going to throw different places with different teams, just staying in shape, trying to do the best I can to stay ready for this call," he said. "I never gave up any hope. If any team needed me, I was always going to be ready."

No Pro Bowl leaders

With one week of fan voting remaining, no Ravens players lead their position groups in the online balloting for the Pro Bowl. Punter Sam Koch led his position group two weeks ago, but was overtaken by New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen and Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee.

Kicker Justin Tucker is the only Ravens player in the top two of his position, over 95,000 votes behind Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski.

Kyle Juszczyk is the third-highest fullback and Albert McClellan is third among special teams players in fan voting, while Marshal Yanda is eighth among guards and Brandon Williams is ninth among defensive tackles. Voting ends Dec. 14 at midnight.

Injury report

Williams (shoulder), tight end Crockett Gillmore (back), and starting right tackle Rick Wagner (ankle) all missed practice Wednesday with injuries that cost them at least part of the Miami game.

Williams and Wagner returned and finished the game, but Gillmore did not. Left tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder), wide receiver Marlon Brown (back), and outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (non-injury related) and Schaub (chest) also did not practice.

Tight end Maxx Williams was limited with a concussion.

End zone

Safety Nick Perry was released from the practice squad to clear a spot for Renner. … Cornerback Cassius Vaughn, who was released Tuesday to make room for the Ravens' tight end additions, cleared waivers. Former Ravens cornerback Rashaan Melvin, who was released by the Patriots, also cleared waivers.
