Chris McAlister and Trevor Pryce who were banged up during practice today, seem to be showing no signs of injuries as they walked through the team hotel this afternoon.
Chris returned to practice 1 play after colliding with Kendrick Ballantyne, a TE out of Northeastern.
Trevor ended up on the bottom of a pile during contract drills causing him to loose his shoe. Trevor limped off the field, but did not have the same limp as he was walking around the team hotel.
Brian Rimpf has a full blown mullet, even with some type of design cut into the side of it.
Over 3,000 people attended training camp this morning according to the Ravens. I believe those numbers to be a little bit higher than actual people. From my own personal account, it was one of the smallest crowds I have ever seen.
I will say from my guess that it was about 1,500 people there.
Time for media lunch, wow watching football, eating catered food….not a bad gig.

So the first practice of the day is in the books. The Ravens will return this afternoon for a full team practice.
Some highlights of the morning included a crushing hit by Prescott Burgess on Willis McGahee.
Other morning notes:
-Jared Gaither held his own and impressed several people including Terrell Suggs in drills.
-Marshal Yanda took the reps at guard with Jonathan Ogden out
– Antwan Barnes has blazing speed, and drew rave reviews from coaches and teammates alike
– Dan Cody, Mike Smith, Justin Green, Jonathan Ogden, and Mike Kracalik, did not practice today.
Brian Billick presser will be heard soon on WNST. Stay tuned to hear from Ray Lewis, Steve McNair, and Terrell Suggs.

The players are starting to come in very frequently here this afternoon, as they have to report and be at a 4 p.m. meeting.
Mike Smith said his shoulder is feeling better, says that he had it scoped last week, and may be on the p.u.p. list for a week or so.
Justin Green said that he is feeling better, right now he is in a day by day mode. I personally expect him to be on the p.u.p. list for a week or so also.
Dan Cody came into the team hotel. I mentioned on the air this week that I believe that Dan may have had the cartilage removed from his knee. Dan had a slight limp this afternoon, and had a bandage wrapped around his right knee. While there is no official word that Dan has had the surgery, my feeling is that he has.
Willis McGahee said he is looking forward to getting camp started and to see what it is like. Willis said he has heard about the way that Coach Billick runs camp, but he will wait and see for him self how it goes.
Feel free to email me with any questions that you have about the Ravens.
