The Bengals enter the game incredibly banged up, having lost A.J. Green — their top playmaker — to a hamstring injury against the Cowboys. The Ravens might not be as banged up as their opponents, but John Harbaugh's team still has some injuries to take care of.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith did not participate in practice on Thanksgiving morning, his second straight missed practice. Smith did not play against the Cowboys due to a back injury, and the Ravens were hoping to have him back on the field on Sunday. Guard Alex Lewis (ankle), and running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (Thigh) did not participate as well.
But the good news is that offensive lineman Marshal Yanda, who moved from right guard to left guard against the Cowboys, was back on the field after missing Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.
