Ravens' Haloti Ngata sidelined again for Thursday's practice

Tight end Dennis Pitta practicing for second straight day

Nose tackle Haloti Ngata was again the only Ravens player sidelined from practice Thursday, and he appears headed for another game-time decision Sunday.

Ngata sat out the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears last Sunday because of a knee injury sustained the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ngata has not practiced in nearly two weeks.

Tight end Dennis Pitta, who returned to practice Wednesday after a nearly four-month absence because of a discloated and fractured right hip, also practiced Thursday.

Aside from Ngata, the Ravens really don't have any injury concerns for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Linebacker Daryl Smith (hamstring) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (abs) were both limited in practice the past two days, but they don't appear to be in danger of missing the game.

Wide receivers Marlon Brown (knee) and Brandon Stokley (thigh) have both been full participants in workouts this week.

For the Jets, wide receiver David Nelson (illness) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) were both new additions to the injury report today as non-participants in practice along with linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee).

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring) was upgraded to limited and is expected to play. Fellow wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow) was also limited.
