Lee Evans not expected to play Sunday

Despite participating in practice this whole week, wide receiver Lee Evans is unlikely to play Sunday against the Seahawks, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Evans has missed the Ravens' last six games with an ankle injury.

"I think it's an outside chance right now for that," Harbaugh said. "He's still working through it. If we had a situation where we needed him, he could go."

While Evans has now taken part in three straight practices for the first time since the Ravens' Week 2 game against the Titans, he was limited in practice the last two days and is still working back from his injury.

With rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith playing well, the Ravens will opt to give Evans some extra rest, and make sure he's as close to full strength as possible when he does return to game action.

Meanwhile, even though Evans will likely not play Sunday against Seattle, linebacker Terrell Suggs (knee) and safety Ed Reed (shoulder) are both expected to suit up.

Harbaugh said that both players were given off yesterday in order to give them a chance to heal their bumps and bruises.

"That was more of a rest issue than anything," Harbaugh said.

Suggs admitted that his knee was bothering him a bit yesterday, but laughed when asked about his status.

"I'm good, man," Suggs said. "Sometimes things just flare up. It's the NFL.

"If I can breathe, I'm good (for Sunday)."
