McPhee set to return from knee injury

While the secondary took a hit the loss of Jimmy Smith to surgery for a torn abdominal muscle, the line will get a boost with Pernell McPhee ready to return.

McPhee, the starting defensive end who has missed the last two games with a knee injury, declared he’d be on the field Sunday when the Ravens play at the Pittsburgh Steelers in a prime-time game on NBC.

"I feel like I’m ready. I feel like I’m 100 percent," said McPhee, who practiced for the second day in a row Thursday. "First time I went out to practice (Wednesday), didn’t have on a knee brace. I feel very comfortable going out running the drills, doing one-on one-drills, doing individual drills."

McPhee didn't practice last week going into the Ravens' 55-20 win over the Oakland Raiders. He has been part of a unit that has had trouble getting to opposing quarterbacks. He only has a half-sack after tallying six last season.

The Ravens have just 16 sacks through nine games.

McPhee took limited snaps, according to the Ravens, as did tackle Haloti Ngata (shoulder) for the second day in a row. Ngata dressed but didn't play vs. the Raiders.

Right guard Marshal Yanda (ankle) was upgraded after not practicing Wednesday. He had limited participation.

Tackle Terrence Cody (arm) and safety Christian Thompson (thigh) were added to the list of 15 by coach John Harbaugh. They were limited participants along with receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) and receiver Torrey Smith (chest).

McPhee was almost giddy about his propsects of returning.

"The quickness is coming back," he said. "We (were) out doing drills and coach told me I look pretty good. I was moving pretty good."

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Hayden Hurst is actually all set for training camp

<em>This post has been updated with a correction to Hurst's injury status.</em>

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Some good news for Ravens fans: Despite reports earlier that a hamstring injury has left tight end Hayden Hurst 'questionable' to participate in training camp from Rotoworld, he said he's doing just fine. Hurst had hamstring issues previously but returned to practice. Last season, Hurst missed four games following foot surgery. After a previous version of this post was published, he tweeted that he is not questionable for camp. We regret the error. 

2. On "Good Morning Football," Maurice Jones-Drew called Earl Thomas the new Ed Reed. Jones-Drew says Thomas will have the biggest defensive impact on his new spot with the Ravens.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
