Ravens’ roster moves

Ogden passes physical, activated

OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens All-Pro offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden passed his physical and was activated from the physically unable to perform list after missing training camp with a turf toe injury.
Ogden, a 10-time Pro Bowl selection, practiced Tuesday for the first time since last season. It wasn’t immediately known if he will play Friday against the Atlanta Falcons.
Ogden waved to the media as cameras recorded his every move.
Ogden played in a playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts in January after missing the last two regular-season games, but needed a pain-killer to get through it and aggravated his injured left big toe.

Ogden pondered retirement, but decided in April to return for at least one more season .

The Ravens open the season against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10. If Ogden is unavailable, rookie Jared Gaither would start in his place at left tackle.
Meanwhile, the Ravens cut former starting right guard Keydrick Vincent.
"They said they were going with younger players and wanted to give me a chance to start somewhere else," Vincent said in a telephone interview. "Ozzie Newsome said they had tried to trade me, but nothing worked out. I’m going to go home and weigh my options."
Vincent, 29, was due to make $1.6 million this season and had been demoted from the starting lineup at right guard and shifted to the left side behind Jason Brown.
If Vincent had been on the team after the final roster cutdown this weekend, as a vested veteran, his salary for the year would have been guaranteed.
In one other roster move, the Ravens placed second-year running back P.J. Daniels (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Not practicing: cornerback Samari Rolle (sprained ankle), wide receiver Mark Clayton (ankle), linebacker Antwan Barnes (sprained ankle) and safety Ed Reed (thigh contusion).
Barnes stood on the sidelines during special-teams drills.
Linebackers Dan Cody (knee surgery) and Mike Smith (shoulder surgery) remain on the physically unable to perform list.
