Harbaugh says Haloti Ngata to play Sunday

October, 11, 2013
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- There were some concerns whether the Baltimore Ravens would have Haloti Ngata for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers after the Pro Bowl defensive tackle missed two practices this week. But Ngata returned to practice Friday and is ready to play.

Ngata, who is listed with a hip injury, had some "tweaks and strains," according to coach John Harbaugh.

"So, we gave him a couple of days [off]," Harbaugh said after Friday's practice. "But he looked good today, so he’s going to play. He’ll be fine."

Ngata played a season-low 35 snaps in Sunday's 26-23 win against the Miami Dolphins. But he's been one of the NFL's most durable interior linemen, missing four games in his six-year career.
