News and notes: Lardarius Webb's bad camp continues

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.”

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
