Reed still a game-time decision vs. Ravens
To spare any suspense, Ed Reed and Duane Brown are still game-time decisions.
All Pro left tackle Duane Brown sat out of practice again with a sore big toe. Reed on the other hand practiced well according to both Gary Kubiak and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
"He made some ball-hawk-type plays this week," Phillips said of Reed.
Phillips reiterated what Kubiak said yesterday about Reed not preparing to return for this game simply because it's against his former team the Ravens. Phillips did say that if he does play he won't obviously play the entire game.
Andre Johnson practiced in full with the team as he continues to recover from a concussion he suffered in Sunday's win over the Titans. This was the final step for Johnson to complete before he is cleared to play Sunday against the Ravens. Coach Kubiak says Johnson will see a NFL doctor in the next 24 hours and hopefully after that he will be cleared. Kubiak doesn't believe his status is in question for Sunday.
Tight end Garrett Graham sat out of practice Thursday with a sore hip. It was the same hip that he injured in a game during the preseason. Kubiak said with Owen Daniels resting for all of practice yesterday, Graham took all the reps and had his hip begin to bother him following practice on Wednesday.
