Ravens right tackle Michael Oher (sprained ankle) practiced for a second straight day and he remains on track to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

“Unusual guy – extremely tough, extremely dedicated and disciplined,” said offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell when asked about Oher. “He has a very, very high tolerance for pain. He’s been able to get back out. He’s obviously committed to this team, and he’s working at it extremely hard.”

Running back Bernard Pierce (thigh) was a limited participant for a second straight day.  Wide receiver Deonte Thompson (foot), center Ryan Jensen (foot) and defensive tackle Brandon Williams (toe) did not practice and aren’t expected to play Sunday. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) has already been pronounced out.

For the Browns, guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle) and defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin (calf) didn't practice for a second straight day. Safety T.J. Ward (shoulder) and wide receiver/punt returner Travis Benjamin (thigh) were limited.

Linebacker and first-round draft pick Barkevious Mingo (lung) and cornerback Buster Skrine (shoulder) were upgraded from limited participants Wednesday to full participants today. Both are in line to play Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.
