Top four wide receivers out for Ravens Saturday as Maxx Williams, Kelechi Osmele return

Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. (89) looks on as the team held an open football practice at M&T Bank Stadium on Aug. 3, 2015.

A Ravens offense that began practice Saturday without its top four receivers got a boost with the returns of rookie tight end Maxx Williams and starting guard Kelechi Osemele.

Williams, the team's second-round pick, was poked in the eye Thursday and missed Friday's practice as a result. Osemele had his foot stepped on early in Wednesday's practice and played through it that day, but hadn't practiced since.


Wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., who was presumed to have a veteran day off Friday, is missing practice again Saturday, as is wide receiver Kamar Aiken, who has been the most impressive player in his position group during camp.

With rookie receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) and third-year receiver Marlon Brown (back) remaining out, the top four wide receivers on the Ravens depth chart weren't practicing Saturday. Second-year receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill) led the position group through drills.


Guards John Urschel and Robert Myers, who left with possible concussions Thursday, remained out, while guard Marshal Yanda was one of a handful who could be receiving veteran days off.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith falls into that category as well, joining rookie cornerback Tray Walker (hamstring) on the sidelines. Cornerback Chris Greenwood, who was also nursing a hamstring issue and hadn't practiced since Sunday, also returned.

Defensive end DeAngelo Tyson missed his second straight day, while outside linebacker Zach Thompson hasn't practiced since leaving Monday's open session at M&T Bank Stadium early.
