Evans, Birk, Taylor missing from practice

Wide receiver Lee Evans, center Matt Birk and rookie quarterback Tyrod Taylor were absent from the portion of Friday's practice open to the media.

For Evans, this is the fourth consecutive session that he has missed. The wide receiver has not participated since the Ravens' 34-31 win against the Washington Redskins on Aug. 25, and he wore a protective boot on his left foot on Saturday. Birk (left knee surgery) was not present despite practicing on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday prior to Thursday night's 21-7 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Taylor, who was described as having suffered a left shoulder contusion in the first quarter against the Falcons, was absent.
