— 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.

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.
