With quarterbacks Kyle Boller (shoulder) and Troy Smith (illness) sidelined by their respective ailments, rookie Joe Flacco appeared to throw all the passes during the portion of practice open to the media this afternoon.
Boller was on the field, but he seemed to touch his right shoulder a couple times.
In a related note, wide receiver Demetrius Williams, who is still on the physically unable to perform list with a lower left leg injury, took part in individual drills and appeared to run and cut with little difficulty.
* Defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, who did not play in the Ravens' 24-10 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Saturday night, was not at today's practice. No reason has been given for his absence.
Others who did not make it to the practice field during the portion of practice open to the media included: defensive tackles Kelly Gregg (arthroscopic knee surgery) and Kelly Talavou (dislocated right shoulder); cornerbacks Fabian Washington (hamstring) and Derrick Martin (right shoulder); running back Willis McGahee (arthroscopic knee surgery); rookie linebacker Tavares Gooden (concussion).
* Players who watched practice from the sideline included: free safety Ed Reed (shoulder); linebacker Terrence Melton (right hand); and rookie wide receiver Marcus Smith (separated right shoulder).
Smith said his shoulder will likely keep him out of Thursday's final preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.
