Yanda returns to practice The Baltimore Ravens held their first of two joint practices with the Los Angeles Rams on Monday afternoon Tavon Young Jersey , and only nine players were absent. Wide receiver and return specialist Tim White missed his third consecutive practice following Baltimore’s first preseason game. White is considered to be dealing with a minor injury, and he is expected to play in Baltimore’s preseason clash with the Rams. Undrafted free agents Randin Crecelius and Jaelon Acklin missed their second-straight practice, but again, both of their injuries are considered not to be serious. There were no changes to the PUP list, which means Quincy Adeboyejo, Jaylen Hill and Bam Bradley all missed practice on Monday. They are all expected to start the season on the PUP list as well. Tyus Bowser continues to be sidelined with an undisclosed injury, while Tony Jefferson is still dealing with a ‘pull,’ according to John Harbaugh. Jefferson missed the Hall of Fame Game and now the three practices after it. Offensive lineman Maurquice Shakir also missed his third consecutive practice, despite playing in the Hall of Fame Game. He is considered to be on the roster bubble.The good news for Baltimore is that several players returned to the practice field on Monday: Marshal Yanda, Anthony Averett Terrell Suggs Jersey , Bennett Jackson and Tim Williams. Yanda is not expected to be a full participant in practice nor will he play in Baltimore’s upcoming matchup against the Rams. Nevertheless, it is still good for him to shake off the rust before the regular season.Bold Predictions: Ravens vs. Bengals Week 1 proved to be more of a primer than a challenge when Baltimore decimated the Buffalo Bills. But how will the Ravens fair in their first road test and divisional game? The Baltimore Beatdown staff forecasts how tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football will shake out. Sage’s predictions:Only one member of the new receiver trio will score a touchdown.In a dominant performance over the Bills, John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead IV all scored in their debuts. However, on a short week against a divisional opponent on the road, only one of the new additions will have an encore performance in the end zone. The Baltimore defense gets far less pressure on the quarterback.Compared to an inexperienced Nathan Peterman, Andy Dalton will be much better at evading sacks. Expect the Ravens to fall significantly short of their six sack total against the Bills in Week 1. Janarion Grant shakes off his first game jitters.As an undrafted rookie, Grant displayed both flashes of brilliance with a 51-yard punt return and moments of ineptitude when he fumbled. With the nerves and anticipation of his first regular season appearance behind him, Grant will show more consistency as a returner in Cincinnati if his hand injury does not keep him off the field. Vasilis’ predictions:James Hurst will allow three sacks.The Bengals stable of potent pass rushers will attack an untested Hurst. Rookie Orlando Brown Jr. will become the starting right tackle sooner rather than later.Buck Allen will eclipse 100 yards from scrimmage.After Alex Collins’ fumble and Kenneth Dixon’s injury, Allen is in line for an increased workload. Buck will make the most of the opportunity and have a big impact in the short passing game.Tyler Eifert will record 10 catches.As the Ravens stack the box to shut down Cincinnati’s rushing attack Authentic Ronnie Stanley Jersey , Eifert will serve as Andy Dalton’s outlet valve. Baltimore still does not have the personnel to effectively cover dynamic tight ends. Dustin’s predictions:Lamar Jackson scores a touchdown.Against the Bills, we saw several different packages featuring Lamar Jackson. While none were particularly successful, opposing teams now know they must game plan for him now. Jackson will once again have a role in this game, and this time he will score a rushing touchdown in the red zone. A.J. Green will be shutdown. Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has given the Ravens fits for years. However, Green was virtually a non-factor in both games against Baltimore last season. This was in thanks to the excellent play from cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Marlon Humphrey. Although Smith is currently suspended, Humphrey will once again step up to the task and limit Green to under 30 receiving yards.Joe Flacco will not throw an interception. Flacco started the season with a dominant performance over Buffalo last Sunday, throwing for three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Flacco looks confident and poised in the pocket right now, which will be on full display against Cincinnati. Flacco’s decision making was impeccable in Week 1 and that will continue this week. While he will not throw for three touchdowns again, Flacco will protect the ball and manage the game well.
