Ravens released TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi from their practice squad.

The Ravens felt as though they'd be better served to use running back Tauren Poole as depth at the practice squad level, so Ogbuehi was subsequently released.

Bernard Pierce (back) practiced in full Thursday.

While it was thought early on that Pierce could have strong fantasy value, he's nothing more than a low-end backup. He'll play on Sunday, but he has little-to-no fantasy value.

Jacoby Jones (illness) returned to practice as a full participant Thursday.

Jones had been battling a minor illness in recent days but is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against Houston.

Chris Canty (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

This was Canty's second missed practice in a row, but he downplayed the injury and said he'd be ready to go on Sunday. We'll take Canty at his word here and fully expect him to be on the field when the Ravens play the Texans.

Long snapper Kevin McDermott has been placed on injured-reserve with an elbow injury.

Looks like the Ravens will have to go with their back-up long-snapper. Yes, you are all probably devastated to hear this news, but iyt should affect the special teams too much making this transition.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith is no longer listed on the team's injury report.

It has been a bit of a down year for Smith in terms of receiving yards, as he has yet to eclipse the 100 yard barrier in a game this season, and it's already Week 16. Apparently Smith is no longer dealing with any nagging issues, so it's put up or shut up time for the blazing fast wide receiver.

Justin Forsett says it's the best he has felt on a Wednesday in a few weeks.

Forsett has quietly been having a fantastic season in 2014 and has been a huge part in the success of the Ravens this year. After taking it easy these past couple of weeks so he can save himself for the playoff stretch, it appears that the running back is ready to kick it into gear as he claims that it's the best he's felt in weeks. Expect big production from Forsett going forward.

Justin Forsett (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

Justin Forsett laid a big old fantasy egg for you in Week 15. If you did survive his horrible game and you are still alive in the Fantasy Football playoffs, he should be good to go in Week 16.
