FIRST TOUCHDOWN On the seventh play of the first full-team exercise, backup quarterback Marc Bulger fired a 15-yard dart to wide receiver Mark Clayton, who hauled in the pass and had the presence of mind to get both feet down before falling out of the back of the end zone.
FIRST FUMBLE During another full-team drill, Bulger and offensive lineman Bryan Mattison, who lined up at center, botched an exchange, and defensive tackle Cory Redding pounced on the loose ball.
TOO MUCH YELLOW The offense was flagged three times for false starts in the morning session. Thankfully, it's just practice.
CATCH OF THE DAY During a 7-on-7 drill, wide receiver Eron Riley leaped over rookie cornerback Prince Miller and caught a long pass from quarterback Troy Smith along the left sideline.
BIGGEST POP Strong safety Dawan Landry hasn't lost his ability to deliver the blow. He nailed running back Willis McGahee after the running back caught a short pass over the middle. Later, coach John Harbaugh confirmed that McGahee, who left the field with a trainer, lost a tooth because of the hit.
GETTING A LEG UP Both Billy Cundiff and Shayne Graham went 6-of-7 on field goals in the morning. Cundiff converted from 20, 28, 30, 36, 40 and 46 yards, but pushed a 41-yarder wide right. Graham was successful from 20, 20, 30, 36, 41 and 46 yards, but hooked a 38-yarder wide left due, in part, to a low snap by long snapper Matt Katula.
INJURIES Players who are on the physically-unable-to-perform list include free safety Ed Reed (hip), center Matt Birk (elbow), cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (quad), offensive tackle Oniel Cousins ( throat) and running back Matt Lawrence (knee). Tight end Todd Heap (swollen tonsils) is on the non-football injury list. Cornerback Fabian Washington (knee) was activated off the PUP list, but he did not practice.
OVERHEARD "Hey, Fabian, you think we're going to see you in Week 1?" – A fan to Washington, who responded with a thumbs-up sign. The gesture drew applause from the crowd.
NEXT DAY'S SCHEDULE Saturday's morning practice starts at 8:45 and could run between 2 and 2½ hours. The afternoon session begins at 2:45 p.m. and is slated to run about two hours.
