Le'Ron McClain lonely no longer

After practicing yesterday as the lone tailback, Le'Ron McClain got a little company as Willis McGahee returned to this morning's session. McGahee sat out yesterday due to personal reasons, but joined the team for this morning's walkthrough.

Rookie running back Ray Rice, however, was not present during the portion of practice open to the media. Rice, who did not practice yesterday, is dealing with a contusion on his left shin. Kicker Matt Stover (sprained right ankle) was also absent.

Five other players who did not practice yesterday -- wide receivers Derrick Mason (dislocated left shoulder), Mark Clayton (knee) and Yamon Figurs (bruised left knee) and safeties Ed Reed (hamstring) and Jim Leonhard (illness) -- took part in the walkthrough.

Starting offensive tackle Jared Gaither participated in the walkthrough at his usual left tackle spot, but he did not take part in individual drills. Guard David Hale (left ankle) was present and active.
