Ravens training camp highlights: Friday's practice


The first offense fared well in full-team and two-minute exercises against the defense. In the two-minute drill, quarterback

Joe Flacco

hit tight end

Ed Dickson

for a 30-yard touchdown that capped a seven-play drive that left more than 15 seconds on the clock. In the full-team exercise, the offense finished one possession with a

Billy Cundiff

24-yard field goal and another with a Flacco-to-

Dennis Pitta

9-yard touchdown .


Rookie kicker Justin Tucker converted all eight of his field-goal attempts, including a line drive 57 yarder that cleared the crossbar with a few yards to spare. Not to be outdone, Cundiff went 9-of-9. In two days, both kickers are each 13-of-13 .


Outside linebacker

Sergio Kindle

enjoyed a strong day. He finished with five sacks, including 2 1/2 sacks of quarterback

Tyrod Taylor

in a span of four plays. Kindle also came away with an interception off a Taylor pass tipped by rookie linebacker Nigel Carr.


Wide receiver

Tandon Doss

made a few sparkling receptions. He hauled in a nice back-shoulder pass during a one-on-one drill, a diving catch in the end zone during a red-zone exercise and a deep bomb over rookie cornerback

Asa Jackson

during a seven-on-seven drill.


With the offensive line in a state of flux due to the absence of left tackle

Bryant McKinnie

and the rotation of Kelechi Osmele, Jack Cornell and Cord Howard at right tackle, the presence of

Bobbie Williams

at left guard has been a point of stability for that unit. The 13-year veteran has meshed nicely with center

Matt Birk

and new left tackle

Michael Oher

and appears to be a worthy replacement for

Ben Grubbs

, who left in the offseason for the

New Orleans Saints




Lardarius Webb

was excused from practice to return home and deal with a personal matter. Coach

John Harbaugh

said Webb is expected to return in time for Saturday afternoon’s practice. Offensive tackle

Ramon Harewood

(rolled ankle) and center/guard

Justin Boren

(undisclosed) also were absent. Osemele (back spasms) was taken off the physically-unable-to-perform list and practiced Friday. McKinnie (personal reason) is on the reserve/did-not-report list. Players who are on the physically-unable-to-perform list include three-time

Pro Bowl

defensive tackle

Haloti Ngata

(hamstring), defensive end

Pernell McPhee


knee surgery

), offensive tackle

Jah Reid

(strained right calf) and wide receiver/return specialist

David Reed

(knee surgery). Five-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker and reigning


Defensive Player of the Year

Terrell Suggs

(torn right Achilles tendon) is on the non-football injury list. Cornerback

Jimmy Smith

and Doss dealt with leg cramps, but their injuries are not considered serious.


“Who missed that tackle?” — Flacco gloating after he hit Pitta, who outraced inside linebacker

Ray Lewis

for a few extra yards during the two-minute exercise.
