Because of a rash of injuries and head coach John Harbaugh's desire to keep his veterans fresh and rested, the Ravens have their lowest attendance at practice this training camp.
Twenty of the team's 90 players are not practicing in this afternoon's workout. Some of the absences are expected as tight end Dennis Pitta and safety Terrence Brooks remain on the physically unable to perform list and safety Matt Elam is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn biceps.
Other absences can be explained by Harbaugh's tendency to give veterans periodic days off. That likely explains why running back Justin Forsett, wide receiver, Steve Smith, linebackers Terrell Suggs and Daryl Smith, defensive end Chris Canty and cornerback Lardarius Webb are not practicing.
Wide receivers Breshad Perriman (knee) and Marlon Brown (back) remain out. Perriman, the team's first-round pick, is missing his seventh consecutive practice, while Brown has missed five of the past six.
The Ravens are also missing three of their top guards as Kelechi Osemele (foot/ankle) is missing his second straight day and both John Urschel and rookie Robert Myers, who sustained head injuries in yesterday's workout, aren't practicing.
Rookie tight end Maxx Williams isn't working out a day after he was poked in the eye and left practice early.
Cornerbacks Tray Walker (hamstring) and Chris Greenwood (hamstring) and outside linebacker Zach Thompson (undisclosed) continue to be sidelined while both defensive linemen DeAngelo Tyson and Brent Urban are missing their first practice of training camp.
