John Harbaugh chooses rest over practice during bye week
Ravens enter break with 4-5 record
— With his team on a three-game skid, head coach John Harbaugh said Monday the Baltimore Ravens will not practice during the bye week.
“I know that we’re better off resting at this point,” he said. “I think our guys have been hard at work at it through a long training camp, and it will be good for us to get an opportunity to get off our feet and get our legs back, so I’m looking forward to that. There will be treatment, obviously, throughout the course of the week with the guys who need it, and the rest of the players will be away. The coaches will be working through the week.”
The Ravens had the longest training camp in the NFL and played five preseason games. They also have one of the later bye weeks. Players have been at it since July 19.
Baltimore has dealt with a number of injuries in recent weeks,

including playing Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers without both starting tackles. Harbaugh said he believes all of the Ravens’ banged up players should be able to recover fully by the time they host the Cincinnati Bengals out of the bye week.
“I think all of our injuries are along those lines. Then we’ll be looking at a few guys coming back potentially – Maurice Canady, maybe, guys like that,” he said. “This should be [beneficial]. The timing is pretty good right now that way.”
Canady, a third-year cornerback, is currently on injured reserve with a hamstring injury but could be designated to return next week.
Harbaugh said the Ravens held the usual post-game meetings on Monday and had player development seminar from 4 to 5 p.m. There were more meetings on Tuesday and some strength and conditioning work.
