Ravens players absent from Wednesday's practice: QB Joe Flacco (right hip), RT James Hurst (back), DB Anthony Levine Sr. (ankle), FS Eric Weddle, RG Marshal Yanda and CB Tavon Young (ankle). LT Ronnie Stanley (left ankle) and OLB Tim Williams (ankle) are participating.
“I take a lot of pride in my character and how I was raised and the things that I do, day in and day out,” Yanda said. “I would never, ever spit on another man, another person, individual, ever. On the field, off the field, never. That's not the the way I was raised."
Here is an example: 5: The Blue Jays will hit the road for four of their first five games for the first time since 1986. They will tangle with Towson (Feb. 9), North Carolina (Feb. 23), Princeton (March 2) and Syracuse (March 9).
Ravens QB Joe Flacco (right hip), RT James Hurst (back), DB/LB Anthony Levine (ankle) and CB Tavon Young (groin) missed practice today. S Eric Weddle and G Marshal Yanda got days off. OLB Tim Williams (ankle) was limited.
Derek Carr said Wednesday that he begged Michael Crabtree to stay in Oakland. Jon Gruden "really wanted to coach him." Now the Ravens wide receiver is hoping to fight off a Raiders-esque slump. bsun.md/2Tyruh4 (via @ChildsWalker )
Joe Flacco (right hip) was absent for the open portion of practice for the sixth straight time today. RT James Hurst (back), LG Alex Lewis (shoulder), CB Jimmy Smith, CB Brandon Carr and OLB Terrell Suggs also missing.
Alex Collins, Anthony Levine Sr. and Tavon Young were back.
Joe Flacco, Alex Lewis, Brandon Carr, Terrell Suggs, James Hurst and Jimmy Smith were not out there for visible portion of #Ravens practice. Tavon Young, Anthony Levine and Alex Collins all returned after missing Thursday.
The senior admitted getting choked up after learning that @Towson_FB had qualified for the @NCAA_FCS playoffs, but fellow senior linebacker Chris Tedder said the defense thrives on Wallace's emotions. “Without that, we wouldn’t be who we are out there,” he said.
The undrafted rookie ran a 4.52 at Rutgers' Pro Day, but was unsatisfied. “I’ve run faster than that,” Edwards recalled, adding that his best time was a 4.4. “It was indoors, and it was kind of cold in there, but that’s no excuse. I just wasn’t as fast as my fastest that day.”
RAvens RB Alex Collins (foot) was a full participant in practice after missing Thursday's, but G Alex Lewis (shoulder) went from limited to a nonparticipant Friday. Doesn't bode well for his availability Sunday.
A quarterfinal appearance in the NCAA Division III football tournament is at stake for @JHU_Football (10-1) and @FrostburgFBALL (10-0). The Blue Jays have lost at this stage in each of their last four trips, while the Bobcats are 2-0 in the second round.
