Ravens Injury Report - Thursday

OWINGS MILLS - Besides the shoulder injuries of quarterback Kyle Boller and running back Jamal Lewis, the Baltimore Ravens' injury report lists cornerback Tom Knight as questionable with a groin injury.

Knight's injury will likely increase the playing time of Will Demps in the nickel package, or free safety Gary Baxter will shift over to cornerback Sunday against multiple receiver sets.
Boller is listed as questionable and Lewis is probable.

Offensive guard Bennie Anderson (shoulder), Baxter (knee) and receiver Marcus Robinson (hamstring) were listed as probable along with receiver Ron Johnson.
Johnson was out last week after undergoing arthroscopic surgery, but said he has improved. "I'm feeling pretty good, but we'll have to see how it responds this week," Johnson said. "I'm definitely feeling better. It's not as sore."

Meanwhile, the Broncos' prominent injuries include: quarterback Jake Plummer (broken foot, out), offensive tackle Ephraim Salaam (knee, out), wide receiver Ed McCaffrey (knee, questionable), Sharpe (knee, probable) and defensive tackle Daryl Gardener (wrist, probable).

QUOTABLE: Denver Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe on his former apprentice Todd Heap: "I saw a guy that had an awful lot of ability and he wanted to be good and he wanted to learn. I've watched him on film and I see myself. It's amazing because they will watch him and say, 'He got that from you, didn't he?' He's playing phenomenal."

QUICK HITS: Ravens safety Ed Reed will debut as a correspondent for the NFL Network on Nov. 4. … Boller said he wasn't familiar with Denver quarterback Danny Kanell, who has been elevated to started from third-string because of injury. Boller said he was a freshman in high school in 1996 when Kanell was drafted by the New York Giants.
