By Jamison Hensley
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice returned to practice after missing his first game in five years, indicating there is a good chance of Rice playing against the Buffalo Bills and their 30th-ranked run defense.

In addition to Rice, starting defensive lineman Chris Canty (groin) was limited Wednesday after sitting out Sunday's game. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) was ruled out for his third straight game. Marlon Brown, who replaced Jones in the starting lineup, didn't practice because of a neck injury.
For the Bills, six starters didn't practice: DE Mario Williams (ankle), CBs Stephon Gilmore (wrist) and Leodis McKelvin (hamstring), WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring), DT Kyle Williams (Achilles) and G Kraig Urbik (knee). Kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin) also didn't participate.
Here's the Ravens' complete injury report for Wednesday:
Out: WR Jacoby Jones (knee).
