TWEET-WORTHY?: During a full-team exercise, quarterback Joe Flacco executed a play-action rollout to his left and launched a deep pass to rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith, who had left cornerback Lardarius Webb far behind. According to the team, the players have been giving Smith grief over his propensity for using his Twitter account. So seven-time Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed yelled to Smith, "That's your tweet!"
GORRER GETS ATTENTION: During a brief red-zone drill, Flacco threw a quick slant to wide receiver Lee Evans from the 3-yard line. But cornerback Danny Gorrer ripped the ball out of Evans' grasp. The play got defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano to lead the defense in a chorus of "Danny!" for several seconds.
HARPER GETS UNWANTED ATTENTION: Flacco appeared to have found wide receiver Justin Harper for another long gain, but his pass sailed through Harper's hands. That invited ridicule from outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
BUT HARPER BOUNCES BACK: Harper made amends when he caught a long pass from rookie quarterback Tyrod Taylor and raced down the left sideline for a touchdown.
BIG HIT: Inside linebacker Tavares Gooden flexed his muscles when he ran over right guard Oniel Cousins. But Gooden didn't get to Taylor because running back Ray Rice chipped Gooden to the side.
INJURIES: Wide receivers Anquan Boldin and James Hardy (hamstring), guards Marshal Yanda (back spasms) and Ben Grubbs, center Matt Birk (left knee) and rookie running back Damien Berry (unspecified) did not practice. Boldin and Grubbs watched from the sideline in what was likely a day of rest for the starters. Reed and offensive tackle Brady Bond (left calf/shin) returned to practice after sitting out Sunday's session. Wide receiver-kick returner David Reed (wrist) was activated from the team's physically-unable-to-perform list. Cornerbacks Chris Carr and Domonique Foxworth were not present in the latter half of practice. Carr appeared to tweak his right hamstring while chasing Evans. Foxworth has been dealing with his surgically repaired right knee.
OVERHEARD: "What's up, Ozzie? You got your highchair?" — Rice, to general manager Ozzie Newsome as he carried a chair into the team's indoor facility to watch practice.
NEXT DAY'S SCHEDULE: Tuesday's session is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. and could run as long as three hours. All practices are closed to the public.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
