Ravens rookie DT Travis Jones returns to practice; three starters absent – The Denver Post


Ravens rookie defensive tackle Travis Jones returned to practice for the first time in three weeks Wednesday.

Jones, a third-round draft pick who impressed in training camp, injured his knee in the team’s second preseason game and missed the Ravens’ season-opening win Sunday over the New York Jets.

Three starters were missing at practice Wednesday: fullback Patrick Ricard, defensive lineman Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Justin Houston. Coach John Harbaugh is scheduled to meet with reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

In Miami Gardens, Florida, the Dolphins were missing starting left tackle Terron Armstead and starting right tackle Austin Jackson at practice Wednesday. Jackson left Sunday’s 20-7 win over the New England Patriots with an ankle injury in the second quarter and did not return. Armstead left the game briefly with an undisclosed lower-body injury but returned.

Dolphins tight end Cethan Carter, running back Salvon Ahmed and outside linebacker Melvin Ingram were also missing at practice. Carter is in concussion protocol, while Ahmed was inactive for the opener with a heel injury.

Extra points

  • The Ravens have placed offensive tackle Ja’Wuan James (Achilles tendon) and cornerback Kyle Fuller (knee) on season-ending injured reserve. Both were hurt Sunday. The team also signed cornerback T.J. Carrie to its practice squad. Carrie, 32, played 11 games with the Indianapolis Colts last season and had 23 tackles and a fumble recovery.
