The Ravens’ practice at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday was marked by the return of fullback Vonta Leach, inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and rookie cornerback Asa Jackson.
Leach did not take part in Friday’s session at the team’s training facility in Owings Mills because of what coach John Harbaugh described as back tightness. Ellerbe and Jackson also did not practice, but the reasons for their absences were not disclosed.
Center Matt Birk (back spasms), rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw (bruised right shoulder) and wide receiver Tandon Doss (hamstring) sat out their sixth consecutive practice. Tight end Dennis Pitta (broken right hand), rookie running back Bernard Pierce (hamstring) and linebacker Josh Bynes (undisclosed) did not participate for the fifth straight day.
