posted in: News | 0

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and nose tackle Michael Pierce were the only Ravens missing from Wednesday’s practice as the team began preparations for its AFC North showdown with the Cleveland Browns.

Beckham received a rest day but was also listed with a knee injury on the Ravens’ first injury report of the week. Pierce was out because of an illness.

Right tackle Morgan Moses was back as a full participant after missing the team’s win over the Seattle Seahawks because of a shoulder injury.

Beckham, who celebrated his 31st birthday with his first touchdown catch with the Ravens on Sunday, did not show any obvious discomfort during or after the game. He caught five passes for a season-high 56 yards. Beckham missed two games earlier this season with an ankle injury and also suffered a chest contusion on Oct. 29 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Meanwhile, a long list of Browns starters missed practice Wednesday, though several merely received rest days.

Tight end David Njoku sat out with a knee injury, while cornerback Greg Newsome remained out because of a groin injury that sidelined him Sunday for the team’s win over the Arizona Cardinals. Rookie Dawand Jones, who’s expected to slide from right to left tackle to fill in for injured starter Jedrick Wills Jr., was absent because of knee and shoulder injuries. Reserve running back Pierre Strong, who played well against the Ravens in Week 4, did not practice because of a hamstring injury. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin also sat out with a concussion.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson, who returned from a shoulder injury to start against the Cardinals, was a full participant. Defensive end Ogbo Okoronkwo (groin) was limited.
