Wide receiver Jacoby Jones completed a week of practice Friday, raising the possibility he will play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Jones has been out since suffering a knee injury Week 1, when teammate Bynden Trawick accidentally collided with Jones on a punt return.

“I made a lot of progress, just by getting out there on that green with my teammates,” Jones said. “That’s the best part, just being out there, feel like part of the team again. Catch a few passes (on the) JUGS machine, run a few routes. “I’m taking my time with it. Just easing my way into it.”

Asked if he would play Sunday, Jones said, “I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to the trainers and the coaches. You’re trying to get me in trouble with (coach) John Harbaugh, I can’t answer that question.

“Everybody got pain. I can tolerate and deal with it.”

The Ravens have plenty of receivers with injuries, and decisions to make on which players will be active Sunday. Four wide receivers were listed as questionable Friday – Jones, Marlon Brown (thigh), Brandon Stokley (thigh) and Deonte Thompson (concussion). Harbaugh said Thompson passed the concussion protocol test Friday, but that he still had to be checked for any symptoms resulting from practice.

Other Ravens listed as questionable for Sunday were linebacker Arthur Brown (shoulder), running back Shaun Draughn (knee), linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder), and cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh).
