The Ravens confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the team practiced without three defensive starters in defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, nose tackle Ma’ake Kemoeatu and cornerback Jimmy Smith.

Ngata suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee and an injured right shoulder in the Sunday’s 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys. Kemoeatu is also dealing with a right knee injury, and Smith injured his groin Sunday.

Offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie participated on a limited basis due to a thigh injury.

The Houston Texans, Sunday’s opponent, practiced without cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who is battling a sore groin.

Seven starters were limited in practice. They were right guard Antoine Caldwell (concussion), nose tackle Shaun Cody (back), tight end Owen Daniels (non-injury related), running back Arian Foster (non-injury related), inside linebacker Bradie James (calf), wide receiver Andre Johnson (non-injury related), and defensive end Antonio Smith (non-injury related).

A pair of starters in center Chris Myers (hip) and left guard Wade Smith (knee) participated fully.
