Ravens' Eugene Monroe practices for third straight day

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Offensive tackle Eugene Monroe practiced on a limited basis for a third straight day, an indication that the Baltimore Ravens could have every player available for Saturday's AFC divisional playoff game against the New England Patriots.

Monroe has missed the past two games with an ankle injury before returning to practice this week. On Wednesday, Monroe said he was "very optimistic" about playing against the Patriots.

If Monroe can play, the Ravens would likely move undrafted rookie James Hurst to right tackle and shift Marshal Yanda from right tackle to guard, where he has been a Pro Bowl player for the past four seasons.

"He is progressing well," coach John Harbaugh said of Monroe.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs received his usual day off Thursday.
