OWINGS MILLS – News and notes from practice Tuesday, before the Ravens traveled to Philadelphia for three days of joint practices with the Eagles:
- Lardarius Webb is not having a training camp to remember:
Webb (hamstring) missed practice again Tuesday, after not playing Thursday, and missing practice both Saturday and Monday. The Ravens are hoping for good health from Webb this season, but he began camp by failing his conditioning test, and now the hamstring injury. Jimmy Smith and Webb are the Ravens' best cover cornerbacks, and their secondary isn’t the same without either. Webb has plenty of time between now and Week 1 in Denver (Sept. 13), but his health is something to watch.
“Maybe he aggravated it a little, perhaps – you’ll have to ask him exactly,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh of Webb. “But it’s not right, right now, and he’s just nursing it and working it and trying to get it right.”
- Injury update:
The big news was that safety Terrence Brooks (knee) was activated off the PUP list and was back at practice. (click here for more)
Meanwhile, Harbaugh said tight end Dennis Pitta would remain on PUP to start the season. (click here for more)
In other injury news, wide receiver Michael Campanaro, cornerback Asa Jackson (knee), and guard Robert Myers (concussion) returned to the field. Among those who did not practice were tight end Maxx Williams, guard Kelechi Osemele (foot), offensive lineman John Urschel (concussion), offensive lineman Jah Reid, and linebacker Steven Means (groin).
- Quote of the day:
From Brooks, on practicing for the first time during training camp, “I was already up really early before my alarm clock went off. I was ready to get here.”
