Ravens getting healthier with Week One approaching


The Ravens are down to 53 players on their active roster and that group is looking healthy as they start the week of preparation for the start of the regular season.

Baltimore got several ailing players back at practice on Saturday. Cornerbacks Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith and Asa Jackson all returned to the field, giving the Ravens a much stronger look in the secondary than they’ve had for much of the summer. Running back Bernard Pierce was also back to work after suffering a concussion in the team’s third preseason game, leaving coach John Harbaugh pleased with the way things are shaping up for his team.

“Very encouraging to get all those guys practicing,” Harbaugh said, via the team’s website. “I think we had everybody practicing today. It’s encouraging to see that. Those guys all looked good. We’ll just take it one day at a time from there.”

The return of the three corners may have something to do with the team’s decision to keep only that trio and Chykie Brown on their initial 53-man roster, although reports out of Baltimore are that Derek Cox will be brought back to the team in the near future.

  1. The Steelers are Marching and the world cowers. The three rivers were made from your tears and we build boats. We build lots of boats. We walk beside pristine trophy cases and engraved gold. They say it's lonely at the top, but we sure like the view. says: Aug 31, 2014 8:01 AM

    Webb and Smith are just two more busts in Ozzie’s looonngg line of them. They love to perpetuate the lie that he is some sort of genius so the cover up their busts by keeping them. Sad really.

    They also kept 7 wideouts against what was predicted fueling speculation that some kind of a trade is being worked. CB or low pick probably.

    Lol at your stupid response. Ravens avg again this year. They have the worst $20 mil QB in history and a slow/not very good D.

    Ozzie is probably working a trade with Deonte Thompson as bait…Maybe Carolina, Oakland, or some NFC team will bite.

    Look for a corner or 4th round pick+ for compensation.

    Surprised they kept Flacco who was a Flucco to win the SB.
    Worse QB by a mile

    Let me get this straight, an undrafted free agent that had a hard time getting on the field on team with a mediocre receiving core is going to some how bring a corner or a 4th round pick?

    So your telling me that by having the most wins in the regular season and tied for the most wins in the playoffs for the first 7 years one of the most successful post season runs anyone will ever see makes you a horrible quarterback. Well if that’s the case I’m going to try out for a team because I can’t throw a ball straight.

    Lets see if I understand all the negative comments geared towards the Ravens. Oh that’s it…Jealousy

    Webb and Smith are one of the top 3 cornerback tandems in the NFL. Steelers secondary is a JOKE. The Ravens LBs are the Best in the NFL. They will be one of the top defenses in the league this year.
    This is the best and most complete team the Ravens have ever had.
    They go 12-4 and win the AFC North easily. Steelers miss the playoffs for the 3rd year in a row. Haley and Tomlin finally get fired.
    1-3 in preseason and Looked HORRIBLE doing it. Will be a long season in Steel City.

    Here’s what Bengals and Steelers fans don’t want to tell you.

    They both play IN Baltimore to kick off the season. Bengals week 1, Steelers week 2.
