Eight Ravens players didn't practice on Wednesday

Eight Ravens didn't practice on Wednesday, including six starters.

The only players not expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though, are offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, defensive end Chris Canty and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan.

Monroe is out for at least a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery prior to the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers, according to a source.

Canty had successful wrist surgery and is out for two to three weeks, barring a setback, according to a source.

And Jernigan has a meniscus injury that has limited his activity severely. He's expected to miss at least a month, according to a source.

Meanwhile, middle linebacker Daryl Smith downplayed the severity of a knee injury and predicted he'll play Sunday.

"Just a little knee," Smith said. "They gave me a little time to rest."

Wide receiver Marlon Brown (pelvis), safety Matt Elam (right shoulder countusion), guard Kelechi Osemele (bruised, hyperextended right knee) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle) didn't practice.

The Ravens didn't list linebacker Terrell Suggs (groin), cornerback Chykie Brown (neck) and running back Bernard Pierce (quadriceps) on the injury report.

For the Buccaneers, five players didn't practice today.

That includes cornerback Jonathan Banks (neck), linebacker Jonathan Casillas (hamstring), safety Dashon Goldson (ankle), wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) and quarterback Josh McCown (right thumb).

Mike Glennon will start again with McCown sidelined.

Defensive end Larry English (hamstring) and wide receiver Mike Evans (groin) were limited.

And linebacker Mason Foster participated fully despite a shoulder injury.
