Thursday update: Peters returned to practice on Thursday in limited fashion and is listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Wednesday update: The Ravens were back at practice on Wednesday and Peters remains sidelined with a back injury. His status for Sunday is unclear.

The Baltimore Ravens have one of the most talented secondaries in the NFL but it might not be at full strength for Saturday’s Divisional game against the Buffalo Bills. Cornerback Marcus Peters is dealing with a back injury and was held out of Tuesday’s practice. His status for this weekend is up in the air.

Peters notched four tackles and a pick in his team’s Wild Card Round victory over the Tennessee Titans last week and could be critical to slowing down the Bills’ passing attack, which is led by the NFL’s receiving yards leader in Stefon Diggs. Peters can also help out on other talented Buffalo wideouts like John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Gabriel Davis.

If Peters can’t take the field and slow down the Bills a lot more pressure will be on Marlon Humphrey and the defensive line. Josh Allen is mobile with a cannon for an arm and won’t make things easy for Baltimore.
