Post-afternoon practice notes

In addition to wide receivers Mark Clayton (left hamstring), Biren Ealy (reason unknown) and Thomas White (unknown), defensive tackles Justin Bannan (excused day off) and Lamar Divens (hip), linebacker Terrell Suggs (strained left heel) and left guard Ben Grubbs (ankle) not practicing this morning, left tackle Jared Gaither, linebacker Tavares Gooden and wide receiver Marcus Smith did not participate in this afternoon's session.

Gaither appeared to injure his left arm and shoulder towards the end of the morning practice, but coach John Harbaugh had said afterwards that he had no report on Gaither. Similarly, there were no apparent injuries to Gooden and Smith.

Demetrius Williams, who sat out the morning session due to concerns over a possible concussion, did practice this afternoon, which involved limited contact.

*Without Gaither and Grubbs, the first offensive line (from left to right) included rookie Michael Oher at left tackle, Chris Chester at left guard, Matt Birk at center, David Hale at right guard and Marshal Yanda at right tackle.

*Because today is his 28th birthday, cornerback Frank Walker broke the team huddle to wrap this afternoon's practice.
