With Smith, rookie Marlon Humphrey and Sheldon Price held out of Ravens practice Friday for unspecified reasons, the defense's starting cornerbacks were Brandon Carr and Robertson Daniel. As thrilling as it was to play with the first unit, Daniel — a second-year player out of Brigham Young who spent two weeks of his rookie year on the Ravens' active roster before moving to the practice squad for much of the final two months of the season — understands that his elevation on the depth chart is based in part on the health of his teammates. "It's Week 1 of the preseason," the 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback said. "Guys went down, I had to step up. So it doesn't necessarily mean that I moved up the depth chart or I moved down. I'm just the next guy up." … The announced attendance for Sunday evening's practice was 10,321. … A trio of former Ravens in free safety Ed Reed, wide receiver-returner Jermaine Lewis and fullback Vonta Leach attended practice.
