McFadden, Smith practice

Bryant McFadden returned to practice on a limited basis today for the first time since suffering an abdominal injury in the regular season finale at Cleveland.

McFadden told me he plans on playing Saturday against the Ravens, though the team will remain cautious.

Defensive end Aaron Smith also practiced on a limited basis – though he won't play this week.

Safety Troy Polamalu did not practice, but will do so Thursday.

© For Baltimore, center Matt Birk (knee) and wide receiver Donte' Stallworth (illness) did not practice.

Cornerback Chris Carr (knee) was limited.

as a follow up to a previous comment you made regarding macfadden against the ravens last time:

according to pro football focus macfadden was targeted 8 times with 5 completions for 100 yards, 1 TD and 2 missed tackles.

consider that accounts for 29% of flacco's completions and 44% of flacco's passing yards in that game.

like i said before, macfadden and gay are the weak links and the ravens would be crazy to not go at them all game long.

McFadden has been inconsistent and banged up this year but he has played well at times. Gay is the real weak link. He is horrible. He gave up 3 TDs vs the Pats. he sucks

Also, Flacco isn't smart enough to target a weak link on defense. He's one of the worst at reading defenses. Hell he throws check-down passes to Rice most of the time
