Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson wore a soft sleeve on his throwing arm at practice Wednesday, the team’s first practice since Sunday’s loss to the Miami Dolphins, but it is not expected to threaten his availability in Week 3.

Jackson did not hang up during the 30-minute portion of practice open to reporters. He showed no obvious signs of injury or discomfort in his right arm late in the Ravens’ 42-38 loss at M&T Bank Stadium, or in his postgame news conference.

“Just a normal thing as the season goes,” coach John Harbaugh said after practice Wednesday. “He trained today, so he will play on Sunday.”

Jackson said his arm “feels good” and that he doesn’t expect any interruptions in his regular practice this week before Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. When a reporter asked if Jackson was able to throw Wednesday, he joked, “I’m going to throw Sunday — a lot of Sundays.”

Jackson didn’t explain why he needed the sleeve, but his right hand appears to have hit linebacker Patrick Ricoeur as he blocked a Dolphins player late in the third quarter Sunday.

Cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey (groin) and Marcus Peters (knee) missed Wednesday’s practice; Harbaugh said Monday that there were no setbacks on Sunday. Also absent was wide receiver Devin DuVernay, who left Sunday’s game with a concussion. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Justin Houston also did not practice, possibly for rest.

Receiver James Proche II (groin), who missed two practices last week and Sunday’s game, returned to practice. Cornerbacks Brandon Stevens (quadriceps), who was held out Sunday, and Damarion “Pepe” Williams (ankle), who was out in the fourth quarter, also practiced.
