Hester (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after logging a full practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Hester, who was inactive last Sunday, was absent from practice due to a thigh issue prior to Friday's full session, but that late-week involvement could be enough for him to face the Jets. While his status will need to be confirmed one way or the other Sunday, Hester's contributions have been restricted to special teams work in Baltimore.

Hester (thigh) did not participate at Wednesday's practice, Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hester has not practiced since doing so on a limited basis last Wednesday, so his prospects don't look promising for Week 7's matchup with the Jets. If the veteran Hester is unable to suit up, expect Ladarius Webb and Chris Moor to fill his role in the return game.

Hester (thigh) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Hester missed practice both Thursday and Friday, so he was a long shot to suit up for Sunday's contest. Ladarius Webb and Chris Moore are both potential candidates to fill in for Hester in the return game.

Hester (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Hester was listed as questionable with a thigh injury the past two weeks, ultimately able to play both times. He's probably one bad game away from losing his job, as he's made some poor decisions while fielding punts, and has also fumbled on two of his 18 returns. Considering he's strictly a return specialist -- with no value on offense or other special teams units -- he needs to perform at a high level to justify the use of a roster spot. Replacement options in the return game include S Lardarius Webb, CB Tavon Young, WR Chris Moore and RBs Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West

Hester (thigh) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The return specialist went from limited participation on Wednesday to no participation Thursday, which isn't a reassuring sign that he'll be on the field this Sunday against the Giants. However, the veteran has played through the aliment the past couple of weeks, so his absence from Thursday's practice could simply be the team taking a precautionary measure to assure he'll be ready to go for Week 6. Look for more updates to come as kickoff approaches with Lardarius Webb and Chris Moore likely to share return responsibilities if Hester is ultimately ruled out.

Hester (thigh) is active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt versus the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

The dynamic return specialist could get a decent amount of work in the return game in a game projected to be a back-and-forth contest. Hester flashed some of his trademark skills on in Week 4 versus the Raiders with a 60-yard kickoff runback and has logged 305 combined yards on kickoff and punt returns this season overall.

Hester (thigh) is expected to play in Sunday's game against Washington, though he is technically listed as questionable, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hester played through the same injury Sunday against Oakland,, working strictly as a return specialist. He figures to reprise the same role after breaking off a 60-yard kickoff return last week.

EDGE Analysis

Hester hasn't practiced all week after playing through his thigh aliment last Sunday. Look for more updates to come later in the week, with Chris Moore and Lardarius Webb slated to fill in as returners if Hester isn't cleared to play.
