2:28-Highlights from Greg Mattison:

-Pass interference calls have been “guys just trying to make plays.”
-“I don’t know about” status of Fabian Washington and Haloti Ngata for Monday night.
-“I don’t think there’s any issues” with Ed Reed
-Lardarius Webb is playing “real aggressive.”
-Dawan Landry is “playing as well as he can.”
-Brady Quinn is “very very talented.” (Mattison was with Quinn previously at Notre Dame.)
-“Consistency” is key for Terrell Suggs. He needs to “play every snap as well as he can.”

2:24-Highlights from Cam Cameron:

-Our “execution has gotta get better”….”we’ve been hot and cold on 3rd down.”
-“Defensively and on 3rd down, (Browns are) playing extremely well.”
-“We’re so much different than we were a year ago” due to Michael Oher, Ray Rice, etc.
-“We want to be a team who takes care of the ball, who scores points, and who wins.”
-You “gotta have the ability to get the job done when a defense doesn’t allow you to get in rhythm.”
-“A lot of different circumstances have played into” Willis McGahee not getting as many snaps. It’s a total number of “snaps issue” and a “Ray Rice level of play issue.”

12:27-Haloti Ngata (ankle) and Fabian Washington (thigh) were both back out on the practice field today; although Fabian was just riding the bike on the sidelines during special teams practice. I am going to guess that both will be listed as limited. It appeared as though Chris Carr (illness) was returning kicks at one point; but not everyone who watched practice was certain they saw him.

It was a strange day to watch practice-as the schedule was changed; and then half of practice was indoors and the other half was outdoors. Given the fact that we’re not able to watch much of practice to begin with-it really limits what we’re able to see. The guys were not happy to be practicing in the rain.

Dannell Ellerbe (illness) was not seen during the part of practice open to the media. Ray Lewis (foot) is the strangest of the injry notes-as he was not out at practice; but popped his head out as we were being kicked out. When he saw that we were still out there, he immediately turned around and went back inside. It appeared as though he was just wearing sweats-but a number of players were practicing in sweats with a jersey over top. Not sure what to make of Ray’s move-but my guess is that he isn’t going to practice again today.

Ed Reed was wearing a horror mask during practice-apparently a nod to Friday the 13th.

11:43-Greetings from 1 Winning Drive, where the Baltimore Ravens continue preparations for their Monday Night Football matchup with the Cleveland Browns at Cleveland Browns Stadium. We will be interested in seeing who returns to practice today after Fabian Washington (thigh), Haloti Ngata (ankle), Ray Lewis (foot), Dannell Ellerbe (illness) and Chris Carr (illness) missed practice yesterday. The Ravens are practicing indoors today due to the rain-which may help get Ellerbe and Carr back on the field.

We are scheduled to hear from Cam Cameron, Greg Mattison and Jerry Rosburg today, as today is supposed to be like a typical Thursday around here.
