There is no official word from the team on whether this practice will be resheduled, but it seems like Sunday may be an option, even though there's rain in the forecast then too.
Are you still in town tomorrow?— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) July 21, 2018
Ravens fans who were looking to see first-round draft pick and potential future starting quarterback Lamar Jackson will have to wait for another day. His presence at training camp, an inevitable competition with the incumbent, Joe Flacco, and potential two-quarterback packages involving both of them are set to be some of the biggest storylines of Ravens camp this summer.
As a Heisman Trophy winner, Jackson was one of the most dynamic players in college football during his time at Louisville. If he can replicate that kind of performance in the NFL, he will be at plenty more training camp sessions for Ravens fans to watch.

Following a dicey matchup between the Nats and Braves Friday night which featured a heated argument between Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals are getting a much-needed opportunity to regroup.
The Washington Nationals' official Twitter account announced that Saturday evening's matchup will be postponed due to inclement weather just after 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
The Nationals had planned to host "JMU Night" at the ballpark as a part of their "College Day" series, and due to more forecasted inclement weather Sunday, the Nationals decided to call the game off sooner rather than later.
The Nationals have yet to announce when the game will be made up.
Tomorrow's forecast obviously bad as well, which is probably why no makeup was immediately announced. Tough to see them trying to play 2 tomorrow, let alone 1. More likely scenario: Makeup Aug. 6, right before Braves are back in town for 3-game series.— Mark Zuckerman (@MarkZuckerman) July 21, 2018
If Sunday's game is played as scheduled, Max Scherzer will start.
Both teams will skip today’s scheduled starters (Gonzalez, Newcomb) and stick with with tomorrow’s originally scheduled starters (Scherzer, Foltynewicz) ... if they’re able to play.— Mark Zuckerman (@MarkZuckerman) July 21, 2018
This post will be updated when more information regarding a makeup date has been announced.
