Fans hoping to get a glimpse of new Ravens offensive tackle Austin Howard will have to wait until Monday, as he did not take part in the team's practice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Saturday evening.
Howard, who was released by the Oakland Raiders on July 28, agreed on Friday to a three-year, $16 million deal with a team option following each year, according to NFL Network. Howard is expected to leapfrog James Hurst to start at right tackle.
The newest absences at Saturday's session were wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz and strong safety Eric Weddle. All three players participated in Friday's practice.
Players who are missing their second consecutive day of practice include cornerbacks Maurice Canady (torn cartilage in knee), Marlon Humphrey (undisclosed), Sheldon Price (unspecified) and Jimmy Smith (undisclosed), wide receivers Chris Matthews (undisclosed), Breshad Perriman (right hamstring tightness) and Kenny Bell (hamstring), running back Kenneth Dixon (torn meniscus in left knee), quarterback Joe Flacco (back), left guard Alex Lewis (unspecified), rookie guard Nico Siragusa (torn ACL, MCL and PCL in left knee), and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Four players who returned Saturday after sitting out Friday include tight ends Larry Donnell (finger/hand) and Maxx Williams (unspecified), cornerback Anthony Levine Sr. (day off), and middle linebacker C.J. Mosley (day off).
Cornerback Tavon Young (torn ACL in left knee) is on the team's physically unable to perform list.
