Lamar Jackson practices, Alejandro Villanueva does not – .

While Jackson training Thursday is good news for Baltimore, the bad news is that left tackle Alejandro Villanueva is not back on the pitch. Villanueva injured his knee against the Broncos and did not return, meaning veteran Andre Smith had to step in for his first game since 2019.

With Ronnie Stanley (ankle) still on the sidelines, the Ravens may have to call on Smith again if Villanueva isn’t ready to leave on Monday night.

“We’ll just have to see how it goes. It’s okay, we just have to see, ”Harbaugh said of Villanueva’s knee. “Sometimes during the season you just have to see how the guys are feeling week after week, and it really becomes that. ”

Safety DeShon Elliott returned to training on a limited basis after missing the Denver game with an ATV injury. Elliott was sidelined in the Chiefs game in Week 2 with a concussion, but returned the following week to play Detroit before sustaining a quad injury.

The other big comeback to watch this week is first-round wide receiver Rashod Bateman and Miles Boykin. They both trained throughout the past week, but weren’t activated from the injured reserve to the 53-man roster. They will have the chance to make their debut in the season on Monday night.

« [Bateman] has to show he’s ready to play in a game, ”Harbaugh said. “It’s a game, and he hasn’t been there for a while. So, we’ll have to see that. ”
