Just how healthy are the Ravens?
When they took the field for practice Wednesday, everyone fully participated, and that includes oft-injured tackle Jah Reid who has been dealing with a calf injury since the summer. He had limited participation.
Quarterback Joe Flacco (ankle), receiver Torrey Smith (ankle), cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), safety Bernard Pollard (ribs) and safety Ed Reed (hamstring) benefited from the the extra time off after all had soreness following a Thursday night game against the Cleveland Browns.
"The guys seem like they're bouncing around," coach John Harbaugh said.
Smith had six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland but hobbled off the field.
Running back Ray Rice, who has 317 yards on 64 carries, welcomed the chance to recharge. The Ravens played four games in 18 days to start the season. They have games at the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, at home the following week vs. the Dallas Cowboys and then at the Houston Texans before their actual bye week.
"I feel unbelievable right now. We wanted to use this as another bye," Rice said. "If you have a long weekend and played the amount of games we played in that short period of time, you want to use the extra couple of days like a bye weekend. That's what we did."
The Chiefs are a different story. Receiver Jon Baldwin (hamstring), cornerback Jalil Brown (hamstring), defensive end Glen Dorsey (calf), cornerback Brandon Flowers (heel), running back Peyton Hillis (ankle), linebacker Derrick Johnson (groin), defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (elbow) and receiver Devon Wylie (hamstring) were held out of practice Wednesday.
Safety Kendrick Lewis (shoulder) and guard Ryan Lilja (back) had limited participation.
