Four key Ravens return to practice field Monday


Four key Ravens return to practice field Monday

OWINGS MILLS – The Ravens’ had four key players return to practice Monday- starting left tackle Eugene Monroe (forearm), starting left guard Kelechi Osemele (Achilles), starting cornerback Lardarius Webb (hamstring) and wide receiver Michael Campanaro. 

It was a positive indication that all of them should be ready for the regular-season opener against the Broncos. Head coach John Harbaugh hopes that Webb, who started slowly due to injuries last season, will get up to speed quickly.

“I felt like he looked good,” Harbaugh said of Webb. “(He) should be on schedule for Week 1. Again, I’m confident. I have faith that he’ll be out there Week 1.”


Tight end Maxx Williams was on the field Monday wearing a non-contact red jersey. However, rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman remained among those still not at practice Monday, along with defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee), running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee), and cornerback Rashaan Melvin (undisclosed).

Jernigan suffered a knee injury during Saturday night’s game against the Redskins, but Harbaugh said he did not think Jernigan would have an extended absence. Jernigan’s availability for Week 1 remained in question.

“It doesn’t look to be overly serious, but again, I can’t put any timetables on it,” Harbaugh said. “But, it’s not something that’s going to keep him out. It is not going to be surgery or anything like that.’

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”
