Gooden is Back on the Practice Field

Ravens starting linebacker Tavares Gooden practiced Wednesday during the portion open to the media in an attempt to check the status of the knee injury he suffered last Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

After he has finished out the practice week, the Ravens will decide if he can line up next to Ray Lewis in San Diego this weekend.

“He’s practicing, so we’ll see how he gets through practice and how he feels when it’s all said and done,” said head coach John Harbaugh.

Gooden injured his knee on a routine special teams play.  He was helped off the field at M&T Bank Stadium and into the locker room, but returned to the sideline in the fourth quarter and rode a stationary bike. 

“There’s nothing torn, so I’m happy about that,” Gooden said before Wednesday’s session. “I’m just relieved that part is over with. Now it’s just about getting it stretched out and getting it moving again the way I’d like to have it move.”
