A week after the NFL fined the Baltimore Ravens $20,000 for failing to list safety Ed Reed’s torn labrum on their weekly injury reports, the Ravens went out of their way to make sure they complied with the league rules.

Baltimore listed a whopping 15 players on Wednesday’s injury report in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens report tripled in size from a week ago and is more than double the size of any of their injury reports this season. Baltimore had previously listed seven players on the injury report before their Week 3 game against the New England Patriots.

Pernell McPhee (thigh) was the only player held out of practice on Wednesday. Jacoby Jones (foot), Haloti Ngata (shoulder) and Jimmy Smith (abdomen) were limited.

Chykie Brown (ankle), Dannell Ellerbe (hand), James Ihedigbo (hand), Ma’ake Kemoeatu (knee), Bryant McKinnie (thigh), Michael Oher (ankle), Kelechi Osemele (ankle), Bernard Pollard (chest), Ed Reed (shoulder/chest), Terrell Suggs (ankle) and Marshal Yanda (shoulder) were all full participants.

    No surprises here. The league is going to push all teams into reporting injuries like the Patriots. One of the few times I will side with New England when it comes to disputes with the league.

    Rice – Headache
    Flacco – Razor burn (forehead)
    Oher – Hangnail
    Suggs – Indigestion
    Reed – just feels “icky”

    seriously, there isn’t a person alive that doesn’t have some type of injury. I mean, most people are headaches. Just get rid of injury reports and make them either they play on sunday with 2-3 day advance notice or they dont’

    Bryant McKinnie – Injured wallet and broken finances.

    The headline of this article literally made me laugh for 10 minutes. I hope their list gets so sarcastic that things such as bad hair day and multiple booboos make the Ravens’ list.

    Gosh I didn’t see that one coming.

    This reminds me of the time back when I was in the military and I had to mow the lawn as part of a punishment for not having shaved in the morning. So when they told me to mow the everything, I mowed everything. Flowers, bushes you name it.

    There are two ways to make the injury reports meaningless. The Ravens and Patriots have come under fire for using the first method; under-reporting injuries. The Ravens have now taken the second method of making the injury report meaningless; over-report everything.

    The Ravens were fined for the perception that they broke an NFL rule, even though they did follow the letter of the law.

    I’m surprised they didn’t list 40+ guys with minor aches, pains, bruises, and soreness.

    So the Ravens have been hiding other injuries as well. Doesn’t surprise me.

    As a diehard Steeler fan, I of course hate the Ravens to the bottom of my soul. However, I LOVE that they did this! I agree that all teams should start listing anything and everything. I can’t wait to see that players on there with a paper cut, knick from shaving, and chapped lips.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but “Way to go, Ravens!!”. Oh God, that was hard to type!

    Yeah and your team doctor hands out pain killers and steroids illegally and by the handful to your players. Which is worse?
