The Ravens are maintaining their tradition of giving older veterans occasional days off from training camp.

Several veterans without a known injury aren't practicing today, including wide receivers Steve Smith and Torrey Smith, tight end Owen Daniels, middle linebacker Daryl Smith and defensive end Chris Canty.


Steve Smith and Torrey Smith are at practice, but both players are just watching from the side.

Meanwhile, starting cornerback Lardarius Webb remains sidelined for the third day in a row after sustaining back spasms Friday. Webb's condition has been characterized as minor, and the Ravens are taking precautions so it doesn't become chronic.

Cornerback Chykie Brown tweaked his hamstring. Reserve offensive linemen Will Rackley (concussion symptoms) and Parker Graham (groin) are still out.

Cornerback Dominique Franks was activated from the non-football injury list after passing his conditioning test, and he has been practicing today.
