Ravens training camp highlights: Aug. 9

HOT DAY CALLS FOR "SIZZLE": Linebacker-defensive end Terrell Suggs has yet to suffer an off-day at camp this summer. The four-time Pro Bowler has been strong against the run and even better against the pass. During a full-team exercise Monday morning, Suggs sacked quarterback Troy Smith and then sacked and stripped quarterback Marc Bulger.

TIP DRILL: Bulger lofted the ball to wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, but Fabian Washington broke up the pass. Before the cornerback could corral the pass for an interception, however, Stallworth tapped the ball away from Washington and managed to haul in the ball for a long reception.

WILLIAMS AT CORNER? Demetrius Williams made a few nice grabs Monday, but the wide receiver also prevented cornerback Doug Dutch from intercepting a Bulger pass.

DISPUTED CALL: Washington appeared to break up a pass from Joe Flacco to wide receiver Mark Clayton, but Washington was flagged for pass interference. That call earned an official quite an earful from Washington and his defensive teammates.

SO CLOSE: During a red-zone drill, Bulger pump-faked the defense, which bit and left Ed Dickson alone. But the rookie tight end let Bulger's pass slip off his fingertips and fall to the turf.

KICKING UPDATE: After going a combined 15-for-20 in two previous practices, Billy Cundiff converted all eight of his field-goal attempts. He was successful from 51 yards twice. Shayne Graham went 10 of 11. His only miss occurred from 51 yards when he sent the ball wide left.

INJURIES: Wide receiver Derrick Mason (bruised left knee), linebacker Tavares Gooden (unspecified), cornerback K.J. Gerard (hamstring), center/guard David Hale (back) and offensive tackle Stefan Rodgers (leg) returned to practice. Offensive tackles Jared Gaither (back spasms), Tony Moll (concussion) and rookie Ramon Harewood (both knees), cornerbacks Chris Carr (left hamstring) and rookie Prince Miller (birth of daughter), and safety Marcus Paschal (right leg) did not practice. Players who remain on the team's physically-unable- to-perform list are free safety Ed Reed (hip), cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (quad) and running back Matt Lawrence (knee).

OVERHEARD: "As a veteran, you just want to get it over with." -- wide receiver Anquan Boldin (above) on the Ravens' preseason schedule, which begins Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers.

NEXT: This morning's practice starts at 8:45 a.m. and could run between 2 and 21/2 hours. The afternoon session, which involves special teams, begins at 2 p.m. and could last about an hour.
