Five Ravens starters are nicked up coming into this week’s game with the Bills.

Not practicing for Baltimore Wednesday were TE Todd Heap (neck) and FS Tim Zbikowski (foot).

Limited in practice Wednesday were OLB Jarret Johnson (back), RB Ray Rice (ankle) and WR Derrick Mason (ankle/finger).

More will be known about the limited players following Thursday’s practice, but there are plans by the Ravens to make better use of Willis McGahee to lighten Rice’s load after McGahee did not play at all in last week’s loss to New England.

“He has to be a big part of what we’re doing for the rest of the season,” said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. “I’m a little disappointed we didn’t get him in (last week). That’s my fault. I took responsibility for that. He should have played more against New England. He’s going to play against Buffalo and he’s going to play down the road as we go.”
