Ravens missing Redding, Boldin from Wednesday’s practice

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — With the Cleveland Browns coming to Baltimore on Saturday, the Ravens have a new kicker in the mix after signing veteran Shayne Graham on Wednesday morning.

Wearing No. 12, Graham was present and practicing as the Ravens took part in their second practice of the week. Regular kicker Billy Cundiff (left calf) was not present during the portion of practice open to the media, making it more likely that Graham handles kicking duties against the Browns.

Defensive end Cory Redding (ankle) and wide receiver Anquan Boldin (undisclosed) were also absent during the portion of practice open to the media. Redding was not seen during the Ravens’ walk-through practice on Tuesday, though no official injury report was released. The veteran defensive lineman has been dealing with a sore ankle that forced him to miss two practices last week. The injury appeared to limit Redding at a couple different point during the Ravens’ 34-14 loss to San Diego last Sunday night.

Boldin’s absence was more mysterious as it’s unclear whether Boldin is dealing with an injury or was simply given a day to rest. He was present during Tuesday’s practice that took place on the Ravens’ indoor field.

Linebacker Ray Lewis (toe) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (toe) were both present and working during Wednesday’s practice.
