Ravens’ Marcus Williams returns to practice; Ronnie Stanley, Gus Edwards, Odell Beckham Jr. among 5 starters absent

Ravens safety Marcus Williams returned to practice Wednesday after missing the past two games with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, five starters — left tackle Ronnie Stanley, right tackle Morgan Moses, running back Gus Edwards, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and outside linebacker Odafe Oweh — did not participate in the portion of practice open to reporters. Reserve cornerback Rock Ya-Sin was also absent.

The Ravens’ first injury report of the week will come out later than usual, because the Seattle Seahawks did not begin practice until late afternoon, but coach John Harbaugh indicated none of the missing players are dealing with serious issues.

“Nothing really to report that’s concerning that way,” he said after practice. “As it goes along in the week, you’ll kind of see it unfold that way.”

Harbaugh said Monday his team came out of its win over the Arizona Cardinals without any major injuries. Beckham suffered a chest contusion but returned to finish the game. Oweh, who has been dealing with an ankle injury most of the season, also went to the blue medical tent to be treated but returned to action. Moses ceded some snaps to Patrick Mekari, but Harbaugh said that was more about managing the veteran lineman’s workload.

In addition to Williams, defensive back Daryl Worley (shoulder) returned to practice, starting his 21-day window to return from injured reserve.

Williams said he’s not frustrated by the hamstring and pectoral injuries that have kept him out much of this season. “I feel good,” he said, though he added “we’ll see what happens” when asked if he expects to play against the Seahawks.
