Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins returned to practice Thursday, but wide receiver Rashod Bateman remains sidelined by a foot injury.
Dobbins (chest) missed Wednesday’s practice with what coach John Harbaugh said was a planned rest day. The Ravens’ depth at the position could be shaky entering Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, with running back Justice Hill (hamstring) not expected to play after getting hurt in Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Bateman’s absence would loom larger. The team’s top wide receiver was unavailable for much of the second half Sunday, didn’t practice Wednesday and was absent for the open portion of practice Thursday. Harbaugh said Wednesday that he was “hopeful” Bateman (11 catches for 243 yards and two touchdowns) could play Sunday.
Outside linebacker Justin Houston (groin) missed his fifth straight practice Thursday, while guard Ben Cleveland was also missing. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell and cornerback Marcus Peters returned after rest days.
