Neither player was listed on the Ravens’ injury report yesterday.

Also absent from practice was linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, who suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and rookie running back Anthony Allen, who continues to fight a bad hamstring.

Center Matt Birk returned to the practice field today after missing Wednesday’s practice with a neck injury.

It appears Birk’s injury isn’t anything serious. The Ravens just like to give the 14-year veteran a Wednesday off every now and then to allow his neck and surgically repaired knee to heal up, according to Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com
