It wouldn't be surprising to see Arizona roll with Hill in back-to-back contests, as he was impressive in his NHL debut Tuesday against the Stars, turning aside 31 of the 33 shots he faced in a 3-1 loss. Although Hill appears to be the likely choice, the Coyotes should officially confirm their starting netminder for Thursday's night's tilt after morning skate.
Williams (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
The fact Williams wasn't limited in any capacity suggests his foot injury has been put in the rearview. His availability for Sunday's tilt with the Vikings will be a huge boost for a Ravens run defense that's bled 169.5 rushing yards per game during Williams' four-week absence.
Wallace (back) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Wallace's ability to practice in any capacity is a good sign, though the same could've been said for Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) last week. With Maclin and Breshad Perriman (concussion) also showing up on the initial injury report, the Ravens are in the process of signing Griff Whalen. The team is probably concerned about Perriman and Maclin more so than Wallace, but the Thursday and Friday injury reports will still be worth a look. There's little reason to believe the Baltimore passing game will have any luck Sunday in Minnesota, regardless of who lines up at wide receiver for Joe Flacco.
Schlemko (hand) will be sidelined 3-4 weeks after having surgery to remove a bone fragment from his hand.
Losing Schlemko is just the latest development in what could certainly be described as an ongoing saga. The 30-year-old was taken off injured reserve following a conditioning stint in AHL Laval -- which forced the team to waive veteran Mark Streit. Yet it seems Schlemko was not fully healed and NHL rules will prevent him from going back on IR until Friday, forcing the team to carry an injured player on the 23-man roster. With Streit no longer with the organization, the Habs will likely call-up a player from the minors once they have room on the roster.
Maclin (shoulder) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Maclin was limited all last week and listed as questionable on the final injury report, ultimately sitting out Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Bears. The Ravens may take a more aggressive approach for Sunday's game in Minnesota, considering Mike Wallace (back) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) are also listed on the Week 7 injury report. Per Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are signing Griff Whalen to provide depth for their banged-up receiver group.
