Ray Rice returns to practice for Ravens

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice returned to practice Thursday after being sidelined the previous day with a thigh injury.

Rice and quarterback Joe Flacco, the only two Ravens starters on the injury report, both participated in a limited fashion. It was a surprise to see Rice on the injury report Wednesday because he had finished Monday night's game at Detroit and there was no sign of him being injured.

Flacco wore a brace on his left knee for the second straight day. He was injured midway through the fourth quarter Monday when the helmet of DeAndre Levy hit Flacco's knee.

Here is the Ravens' complete injury report:

Did not participate: CB Asa Jackson (thigh) and LB Albert McClellan (neck).

Limited participation: QB Joe Flacco (knee) and RB Ray Rice (thigh).

Full participation: TE Dallas Clark (illness) and S Brynden Trawick (ankle).
