After sitting out Wednesday's practice with a sore neck, Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap worked out on a limited basis Thursday. Heap's ailing neck was related to his scary helmet-to-helmet collision with Patriots safety Brandon Merriweather last Sunday. Heap's status for Sunday could be revealed Friday, though the Ravens might wait until Sunday.
Six key players who were limited Wednesday – running back Ray Rice (ankle), wide receiver Derrick Mason (ankle/finger), outside linebacker Jarret Johnson (back), safety Haruki Nakamura (back), cornerback Josh Wilson (hamstring) and defensive end Paul Kruger (sprained medial collateral ligament in left knee) – were upgraded to full participation Thursday. Free safety Tom Zbikowski (bruised heel) did not practice for the second consecutive day.
