Wells sat on Wednesday nursing his sore knee, but came out on Thursday and was limited in practice, but is hoping to be a go this Sunday. Early Doucet and DeMarco Sampson both returned to action today as well, dealing with quadricep and hamstring injuries respectfully. Though one player the defense needs back in a big way is Joey Porter, who sat out of practice once more on Thursday with a knee injury. Kerry Rhodes was also sidelined dealing with his broken foot, but the loss of Porter could make a big difference this week.
Being without their leading rusher could be a particular problem this week as the Ravens likely will be coming in with a chip on their shoulder after being held in check the majority of the night last Monday, getting stunned by the Jaguars 12-7 on National television.
