Where's Samari?

The Ravens returned to practice today at Owings Mills, and cornerback Samari Rolle still appears to be among the missing.

Rolle sat out the last two days of practice last week with what Ravens coach Brian Billick described as a "bug." It was a big enough bug to keep him out of his team's 26-23 victory Sunday over the Arizona Cardinals in Baltimore. Rolle's absence was noticeable, particularly when Anquan Boldin burned nickel back Ronnie Prude for one touchdown and caught another in front of Gerome Sapp.

Tight end Daniel Wilcox (ankle) also was not out during the part of practice the media was allowed to watch. (Actually, the Ravens did their special teams portion of practice on one of the fields furthest away from where the media is permitted to stand, and my binoculars were in the trunk of my car.)

For those who need to know EVERYTHING about the Ravens, defensive end Lee Vickers was added to the practice squad, taking the place of Jake Nordin. Vickers, if he ever makes it to the 53-man roster, has an interesting back story: he played cornerback in high school in Alabama, where he also backed up Philip Rivers, went to a local community college and walked on at North Alabama and obviously grew to his current 6 feet 6, 275 pounds.

Hopefully the Ravens will address the situation with Rolle after practice.
