Ravens starting linebacker Jarret Johnson and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata took the field on a limited basis on Thursday, upgrading their workload from Wednesday’s session.

Johnson is nursing a shoulder injury, while Ngata’s back is bothering him.

But, left tackle Jared Gaither remained out of action with a neck injury.  Gaither originally hurt his neck on Oct. 4 when the crown of his helmet hit quarterback Joe Flacco’s back.  The 6-foot-9, 340-pounder had to be carried off the field on a stretcher.

The Ravens continued to use rookie Michael Oher at left tackle and plug Marshal Yanda in at right tackle.

Meanwhile, tight end Edgar Jones (hamstring) was limited, and receiver David Tyree (hamstring) fully practiced.

For the Vikings, the major change on the injury report was receiver Percy Harvin (shoulder), who went from not practicing to limited participation. 

Also limited were defensive end Ray Edwards (hamstring), guard Steve Hutchinson (back), offensive tackle Phil Loadholt (ankle), receiver Darius Reynaud (hamstring) and fullback Naufahu Tahi (ankle).  Cornerback Cedric Griffin (hand) was in for the entire practice.
