OWINGS MILLS -- Three starters on defense for the Baltimore Ravens -- linebacker Daryl Smith, cornerback Jimmy Smith and safety James Ihedigbo -- are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. All were limited in Friday's practice.

Daryl Smith (thigh) and Jimmy Smith (groin) returned to practice after missing the past two days. Daryl Smith, the team's leading tackler, walked off the practice field gingerly. The Ravens would likely start Josh Bynes, who had been a starter until Jameel McClain was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Another concern is the Ravens' secondary. Jimmy Smith, who injured his groin last Sunday, declined comment in the locker room. Ihedigbo was added to the injury report Friday after he was limited with a toe injury. A third defensive back, backup cornerback Corey Graham (calf), is also questionable.

To add more depth, the Ravens activated Asa Jackson, who had been suspended for the first eight games, and placed guard Kelechi Osemele on injured reserve.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (foot) is listed as probable after having a full practice Friday. He sat out Thursday.

Here is the complete injury report for the Ravens:

QUESTIONABLE: CB Corey Graham (calf), S James Ihedigbo (toe), CB Jimmy Smith (groin), LB Daryl Smith (thigh) and WR Brandon Stokley (groin).

PROBABLE: WR Marlon Brown (finger) and LB Terrell Suggs (foot).
