Former Navy QB Keenan Reynolds makes his return to Naval Academy as a Raven

The Ravens hosted 10,321 fans Saturday night at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD. 

The biggest storyline from the night was former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds making his return to the Naval Academy, this time as a wide receiver.

Reynolds seemed very comfortable in his old stomping grounds. He caught a 30-yard touchdown among several other big plays. 

"He had a big night, coach Harbaugh said. I saw his confidence shift to another gear here [and] I guess I can see why. He's pretty comfortable here."

Heading into Saturday night's practice, the Ravens asked Reynolds to speak to the team about the history of the Naval Academy.

"Just talking to them about the tradition and history of this place and the men and woman that have come through this institution, Reynolds said. It's an honor to be an alumnus."

Reynolds was noticeably the first one out on the field at the start of practice.

"Oh man, it felt like Saturday game day, Reynolds said. [I] had to calm down warming up, I didn't want to get too crazy, get gassed before practice even started."

"It was a great place to have one of my better practices as a Raven. It was only right."

Reynolds holds the NCAA Divison 1 record 88 career touchdowns and an FBS record of 4,559 rushing yards as a QB. The Naval Academy also retired his jersey number 19.

Other notes from Saturday night's practice:

-Justin Tucker hit a 54-yard field goal (per usual).

-Coach Harbaugh still doesn't have a time frame for Flacco's return. He does know he is getting better everyday.

-Ravens first-round pick Marlon Humphrey did not practice Saturday, his third straight missed practice. Humphrey was practicing on the sideline with a trainer.

-WR Breshad Perriman also missed another practice with a hamstring injury.

Joe Flacco not at all concerned with Jalen Ramsey's 'he sucks' comment

After spending 10 years in the National Football League, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been called just about everything.

His "eliteness" has been in question ever since winning the Super Bowl during the 2012-13 season, and while Flacco is known for his "cool as a cucumber" demeanor, he still hears all the noise.

In an interview with GQ, Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey gave an uncensored review on some of the league's top players. When asked what he thinks of Flacco, Ramsey responded with "And just being honest about it, [Joe] Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks."

Just one of several QBs Ramsey took a shot at, Flacco will be adding his comment to the laundry list of opinions.

“I don’t really have much of a comment,” Flacco said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I don’t really care. There’s plenty of people out there saying things. Just add one more to the list. No big deal.”

After finishing the 2017 season with 3,141 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions, there were a lot of opinions surrounding Flacco's future with the team. Those opinions ramped up when the Ravens traded up in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.

But Flacco has begun quieting those doubters with what has been his strongest and healthiest training camp in years. And with Jackson still adjusting to NFL style of play, the 2018 season is Flacco's time to prove he's still got it.

While Ramsey isn't too high on Flacco, the All-Pro cornerback foresees a successful career for Jackson.

"I would've picked [Lamar Jackson] earlier than 32," Ramsey said. "I think he's gonna do a good job. Especially with the [Baltimore Ravens'] offensive coordinator—he likes running quarterbacks, likes that read option."

Among other QBs Ramsey sounded off on was Bills first-round draft pick Josh Allen, who he called "trash," said Ben Roethlisberger is "decent at best" and that Jared Goff is "average to above average."

Ravens vs. Colts preseason: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

After 10 days and two testy joint practices with the Colts, Ravens football is back.

The guys are in Indianapolis to take on the Colts in their third preseason game of the season. You can expect to see Lamar Jackson and RGIII getting more reps in, but it's unclear how much of Andrew Luck we'll see after he missed the entire 2017 season with a shoulder injury.

While the joint practices brought a few brawls, head coach John Harbaugh has been nothing but impressed with how his team has been handling training camp and the preseason thus far.

"I think about as good as [I’ve] ever seen,” Harbaugh said via the Ravens' website. “I’d have to say our best camp in terms of guys focused on improving every day and becoming one percent better at what they do from one day to the next and keep building on that. That’s what I’m proud of.”
