"They played well, they both did a very good job," Harbaugh said. "We had Bryan Hall play middle linebacker the whole second half. He is very versatile. He plays every position on the line.
"He plays a little bit on special teams. He could probably give you something on offense as a fullback or something, and now he has middle linebacker on his resume."
The most experienced player released was offensive guard Tony Wragge, who's entering his eighth NFL season.
The Ravens terminated Wragge's one-year, $850,000 contract. He was due a $25,000 roster bonus if he had been on the 53-man roster for the first game.
The Ravens also released former seventh-round pick running back Anthony Allen and placed running back Damien Berry on injured reserve with neck and shoulder injuries suffered against the Rams.
Berry is in the process of negotiating a potential injury settlement with the Ravens.
The Ravens also placed center-guard Justin Boren (foot) on injured reserve. He was carted off the field against the Rams.
Tight end Matt Balasavage (high-ankle sprain), linebacker Ricky Brown (concussion), tight end Bruce Figgins (shoulder) and sixth-round rookie wide receiver Tommy Streeter (sprained foot) were also put on injured reserve.
Streeter caught four passes for 52 yards and one touchdown, and the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder is regarded as an intriguing project who needs to polish his routes. A year in the weight room should also help him for the future.
The Ravens informed several players that they would ideally like to have them on the practice squad if they clear waivers.
That includes safety Omar Brown, who was released despite recovering three fumbles and intercepting one pass; middle linebacker Nigel Carr, the Ravens' leading tackler in the preseason; offensive tackle Jack Cornell; nose guard Ishmaa'ily Kitchen; outside linebacker Chavis Williams and linebacker Josh Bynes. Bynes has been sidelined with a cracked vertebra for the past month.
The Ravens' other cuts were wide receiver Dorian Graham, offensive lineman Cord Howard, nose guard Nicholas Jean-Baptiste, offensive guard Terrence Moore, wide receiver Logan Payne and safety Cyhl Quarles.
Harbaugh acknowledged that it's never easy to tell a player that he's not in the Ravens' plans.
"It's probably too much to even try to express here," Harbaugh said. "We all put ourselves in those shoes. The thing that I have learned now is that it's a huge responsibility, the way you frame that for the player, for the person. It's something that from experience we all know. We're going to take that with us for the rest of our life.
"I can remember word for word when I was told I wasn't going to play as much as I wanted to play in college and I was not going to be what I thought I wanted to be. Word for word, I remember what was said and will never forget it. As a coach, you try to remember that and take that responsibility very seriously because we have really good guys, guys who have poured their hearts and souls into trying to be a part of this."
The Ravens retained left offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie, who regained his starting job after reporting to training camp overweight and five days late. McKinnie played his way into better shape and is now set to open the season with the first-team offense against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10.
Offensive tackle Ramon Harewood made the team after remaining healthy for the first time since the Ravens drafted him in the sixth round out of Morehouse. He had spent two years on injured reserve previously.
