Bobbie Williams fighting to keep starting job

How much Bobbie Williams can contribute to the Ravens' offensive line remain to be seen, but the banged-up veteran is fighting for a starting job.

Rookie Kelechi Osemele, who had started the first two preseason games at right tackle, has gotten a lot of work with the first team at left guard, too.

Williams, in his 13th season, is coming off a broken ankle with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. Coach John Harbaugh has given him time off to rest during training camp as Osemele has shown surprisingly good form for a rookie.

Harbaugh maintains the Ravens benefit from Williams' presence even though he hasn't been 100.

"Bobbie is just an outgoing personality. Hes got a lot of fire, really positive, up-lifting kind of guy. (He) fits our locker room really well," Harbaugh said. "Guys love being around him, so hes brought that kind of leadership style. Its been good.

Williams was moved to right guard earlier in the week as he practiced with the first team there. He got the start vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night because usual starter, Marshal Yanda, injured his knee in practice.

"He kind of tweaked it a little bit. Its nothing serious, but we had a little pileup there, which we were kind of disappointed by. It wasnt anyones fault," Harbaugh said.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
