Pro Bowl offensive guard Marshal Yanda wasn't practicing or on the field at today's mandatory minicamp.
Yanda attended the Ravens' White House visit and Super Bowl ring ceremony and is likely rehabbing from an injury from last season.
Meanwhile, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs practiced with his teammates for the first time this offseason and is noticeably lighter than a year ago when he struggled with injuries.
Suggs appeared to be 10 to 15 pounds lighter than last season when he was hampered by a partially torn Achilles tendon and a torn biceps and was moving around well.
Newly-acquired inside linebacker Daryl Smith was practicing and didn't display any lingering effects from the sports hernia that limited him to two starts in his final season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was signed to a one-year contract worth up to $2.125 million last week.
Rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown was limited again to individual drills, but appears to be recovering quickly from sports hernia surgery.
Not practicing due to injuries: nose guard Terrence Cody (hip surgery), wide receiver Marlon Brown (ACL), defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore (ACL), cornerback Lardarius Webb (ACL) and offensive guard Antoine McClain (foot surgery).
