A half hour into the first full-squad practice of training camp, there is no sign of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata or offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie. Of course, we will let you know if that should change. And we'll try to get an explanation from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh when practice wraps up around 5 p.m.
Also missing from practice were the few players on the physical unable to perform list, including defensive end Pernell McPhee, wide receiver David Reed, offensive tackle Jah Reid and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Kelechi Osemele, who is also on the PUP list with back cramps, is out on the field today but not practicing.
And in case you are wondering, Ed Reed is here. He waltzed onto the field during through the special teams portion at the start of the practice (side note: I’m thrilled that I no longer have to stalk the Pro Bowl safety).OK, as much as I love the air conditioning here in the media room, I’m heading back out to the practice fields, where several dozen Ravens fans are cheering as players push blocking sleds.
