Baker (ribs/elbow) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Baker recorded three tackles (one solo) during Monday's loss to the Steelers before heading to the locker room prior to the end of the first half with an injury. At this point it's unclear if he'll be able to play Week 2 against the Cowboys, while another update regarding his status should become available later in the week. Kendall Reyes (groin) would likely be next in line to start at right defensive end if Baker is unable to play.

Baker will not play in Friday's preseason tilt with the Bills in order to rest, Anthony Gulizia of the Washington Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The decision to keep the veteran out of the lineup shouldn't bring too much concern as it is not related to any serious injury. Look for Stephen Paea and Ziggy Hood to see increased action with Baker on the sidelines Friday night.

Baker will not receive a suspension for his hit on Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in Sunday's loss, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.

The league office determined that although Baker's hit might have looked like an apparent cheap shot, it wasn't illegal by the letter of the law, as the defensive lineman avoided Foles' head and didn't lead with his helmet. Baker will be cleared to start Thursday's showdown with the Giants, assuming the ankle injury he sustained over the weekend doesn't prove too uncomfortable during practices.
