Ravens sign Edgar Jones; Ben Grubbs returns to practice

The Ravens have signed a familiar face, bringing back outside linebacker Edgar Jones to fill the open roster spot created when linebacker Prescott Burgess was put on injured reserve yesterday.

Jones previously played four seasons with the Ravens, appearing in 31 games between 2007 and 2010.

He spent training camp with the Redskins, but now returns to Baltimore to bring special teams experience and depth at linebacker.

Meanwhile, left guard Ben Grubbs returned to practice today, indicating the five-year veteran is making progress in his rehab from a toe injury.

Grubbs has missed the Ravens' last six games because of the injury. He didn't appear to be doing much during the portion of practice open to the media, and he still might need a good bit of practice time before being able to return to game action, but the fact that he was back on the field at all is a good sign.

Also returning to practice today after missing time due to injury were cornerback Danny Gorrer and running back Anthony Allen. Both guys are coming off thigh injuries; Gorrer missed last Sunday's game against the Cardinals because of the injury, while Allen has sat out the last two games.

One guy who did not return to the field today was wide receiver Lee Evans.

Evans has not played since Week 2 because of an ankle injury. It doesn't appear he'll be ready to play this week, either.

Other guys who didn't appear during the open media portion of practice were defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, wide receiver/kick returner David Reed and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.
