Ravens' starting offensive line, top draft picks not at voluntary practice

The Ravens' starting offensive line was absent from the organized team activity on Thursday, but the voluntary practice was otherwise well-attended.

Left tackle Eugene Monroe, left guard Kelechi Osemele, center Jeremy Zuttah, Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda and injured right tackle Rick Wagner were not present. Wagner is recovering from a Lisfranc foot sprain and Zuttah had offseason hip surgery. Osemele attended practice Wednesday.


Veteran cornerback Lardarius Webb was absent, as were outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs, rookie offensive tackle Nick Easton (who attended his Harvard graduation), rookie tight end Nick Boyle (whose class hasn't yet graduated from Delaware), outside linebacker Albert McClellan, defensive end Chris Canty, defensive end Brent Urban (who's coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament and wasn't here for personal reasons due to attending his grandfather's funeral), injured rookie cornerback Julian Wilson (broken leg) and injured wide receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill).

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed a report by The Baltimore Sun that Campanaro had partially torn his quadriceps Wednesday and would be out until training camp.


First-round NFL draft pick wide receiver Breshad Perriman, second-round tight end Maxx Williams and fourth-round running back Javorius "Buck" Allen weren't at practice because they're participating in the NFL Players Association Rookie Premiere event in Los Angeles.

Harbaugh was encouraged that free safety Terrence Brooks, who's expected to begin the season on the physically unable to perform list, was able to run around on the field. Brooks tore the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his right knee this past December against the Jacksonville Jaguars and underwent surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews.

Signed recently to a four-year, $48 million contract extension, cornerback Jimmy Smith took part in the majority of snaps after undergoing surgery last season for a Lisfranc foot sprain.

Tight end Dennis Pitta caught passes on the side. He stumbled at one point, but wasn't hurt.

Among the veteran players who attended the practice were quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Matt Schaub, running backs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, kicker Justin Tucker, punter Sam Koch, wide receivers Steve Smith, Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken, cornerback Kyle Arrington, safeties Kendrick Lewis, Will Hill and Matt Elam, middle linebacker Daryl Smith, outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw, inside linebackers C.J Mosley, Arthur Brown and Zach Orr, defensive end Timmy Jernigan, defensive end Lawrence Guy, nose tackle Brandon Williams and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson.

Mosley was limited due to offseason wrist surgery.

Defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore was practicing after tearing his Achilles tendon last summer and missing the entire season.

There was a brief scrap between offensive lineman Ryan Jensen and defensive tackle Casey Walker that ended quickly. Walker, who was aggressive during practice, drew the ire of Harbaugh after Walker tackled rookie running back Terrence Magee. Magee wasn't injured on the play.


Rookie outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith intercepted a pass by Schaub and returned it for a touchdown.
