Live From Owings Mills: Gooden, Burgess Miss Practice Again

Posted on 30 December 2010 by Glenn Clark

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens (11-4) returned to practice Thursday at 1 Winning Drive, continuing preparations for Sunday’s regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals (4-11) at M&T Bank Stadium.

LB Tavares Gooden missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, he dislocated his shoulder in the Ravens’ Week 16 win over the Cleveland Browns at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Defensive Coordinator Greg Mattison said Thursday he thought Gooden would try to get on the field Sunday.

“He’ll try to if the doctors gave him the okay” said Mattison. “Tavares Gooden will do anything he can do to play, there’s no question. That’s like everybody on our defense. They know how important this game is.”

With a win and a Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Cleveland Browns, the Ravens would clinch the AFC North title and a first round bye in the AFC playoffs.

S Tom Zbikowski (back) also did not participate in practice Thursday. Zbikowski has not played since being forced to leave the team’s Week 14 win over the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium in the first half. Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday he did not expect the safety to be available for Sunday’s game.

S Ed Reed (neck) and LB Prescott Burgess (illness) did not practice Thursday either, neither is believed to be at risk of missing Sunday’s game.

C Matt Birk (knee) returned to practice Thursday and was a full participant after missing Wednesday’s game. TE Todd Heap (thigh), WR Derrick Mason (ankle/abs), TE Dennis Pitta (head) and CB Fabian Washington (back) were all full participants as well.

WR/KR David Reed (wrist/head) was a limited participant Thursday, he’s on track to play Sunday for the first time since suffering a concussion in the team’s Week 15 win over the New Orleans Saints.

The Bengals announced Thursday (via Twitter) WR Chad Ochocinco (ankle) will not make the trip to Charm City.

Three other Bengals did not participate in practice Thursday. TE Jermaine Gresham (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle) and LB Dan Skuta (back) were not on the practice field.

RB Bernard Scott (toe) was a limited participant for the Bengals Thursday, DE Carlos Dunlap (shoulder) was a full participant.

NOTES: Coordinators Mattison, Cam Cameron & Jerry Rosburg met with reporters following practice Thursday, those chats are available now in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault here at WNST.net……OL Chris Chester joined Drew Forrester Thursday on “The Morning Reaction”, that chat is available in the Audio Vault……DE Paul Kruger is scheduled to join Forrester Friday morning at 7:15am……Pete Morelli’s crew will officiate Sunday’s game……The Ravens announced Thursday they will give away purple Under Armour wristbands to fans who attend Sunday’s game. The wristbands are intended to support the Wounded Warrior Project……New Ravens LS Kevin Houser will wear #70. The number was previously worn by Matt Katula, the veteran LS who was released by the team during Training Camp after five seasons in Baltimore……The Ravens will return to practice Friday, Harbaugh is scheduled to meet with the media following Friday’s practice

Live From Owings Mills: Zbikowski & Heap OUT Sunday

Posted on 17 December 2010 by Glenn Clark

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens (9-4) held their final open practice of the week Friday before Sunday’s showdown with the New Orleans Saints (10-3) at M&T Bank Stadium.

TE Todd Heap (hamstring) was not on the practice field again Friday, and was ruled out of Sunday’s game. Heap has not seen the field since leaving the team’s Week 13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Charm City early in the first quarter.

S Tom Zbikowski (back) also missed practice Friday, he has not practiced since being hurt in the team’s Week 14 win over the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium. He was also ruled out for Sunday in the team’s final injury report of the week.

Head Coach John Harbaugh didn’t rule out the chance that Zbikowski could be placed on Injured Reserve.

“When you’ve got a back, we’ll just have to see. He’s got a MRI coming back on that. There’s not much season left either. If it’s a couple/three week thing, then we’re just gonna put him down.”

Harbaugh did give hope Zbikowski could return, adding “if he can get back next week or the week after, then you bring him back.”

FB Le’Ron McClain missed a second straight day due to illness. RB Willis McGahee also missed Friday’s practice with a similar illness. Both were listed as questionable for Sunday, but are expected to be available.

WR Derrick Mason (ankle) returned to the practice field Friday, he said Thursday he would be “fine” for Sunday’s game and was listed as probable on the final injury report of the week. LB Tavares Gooden (calf) and CB Fabian Washington (thigh) were also listed as probable.

All other players were on the practice field Friday and are expected to be available Sunday.

SAINTS INJURIES:  11 Saints players were listed on the team’s final injury report of the week.

TE David Thomas (knee) and WR Courtney Roby (head) will miss Sunday’s game.

DT Anthony Hargrove (knee) and RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) were listed as questionable for Sunday.

DT Remi Ayodele (ankle), OT Jermon Bushrod (ankle), S Malcolm Jenkins (rib), CB Tracy Porter (shoulder), TE Jeremy Shockey (groin), OT Zach Strief (knee) and LB Jonathan Vilma (quad) were all listed as probable for Sunday.

NOTES: Hear from Harbaugh now in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault here at WNST.net……Saints Play by Play Voice Jim Henderson joined Drew Forrester Friday on “The Morning Reaction” on AM1570 WNST, that chat is available in the Audio Vault……Weather.com/The Weather Channel forecasts 36 degrees and mostly cloudy skies for Sunday’s game……A camera crew from ABC’s “Nightline” show followed OT Michael Oher around the locker room Friday. He will be featured in a 2011 episode of the show around the time his new book will be released……The Ravens will hold a walkthrough Saturday before Sunday’s game. Saturday’s walkthrough is closed to the media

Heap out, Washington questionable in Houston tonight

Posted on 11 December 2010 by Luke Jones

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Though most of the week’s conversation has been focused on the fallout from the loss to Pittsburgh, the Ravens made final preparations Saturday for a meeting with the 5-7 Houston Texans on Monday night.

The team practiced indoors Saturday although the Reliant Stadium roof is currently scheduled to be open for the prime-time encounter in Houston.

“I thought we had a very good practice today, and I thought we had an excellent week of practice,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “One thing about our guys, they’re professionals. It’s a tough loss, and I think everyone has a tough time getting over it – fans, coaches, players. [This team] means a lot to all of us.”

Tight end Todd Heap (hamstring) and cornerback Fabian Washington (thigh) were again absent from practice Saturday. Heap was officially ruled out for Monday’s game after not practicing all week with an injured hamstring sustained on the first play of the game last Sunday.

Harbaugh held one last sliver of hope following Saturday’s practice before Heap was ruled unfit to go against the Texans on the injury report.

“Realistically, it would probably be tough for him to get back,” said Harbaugh, who added that the veteran had made substantial progress from Friday.

Washington’s status, however, is a bigger mystery. The maligned cornerback is listed as questionable against Houston. He was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice but did not practice on Friday or Saturday. With his reduced role in recent weeks and inexperience on special teams, the former starter could find himself on the inactive list for the second time in three weeks.

“We’ve been staying on top of [the injury] all week,” said Washington, who acknowledged his status would be a game-time decision. “It’s going to be close.”

Cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh) was present and fielding punts after being listed as a limited participant Friday. Fullback Le’Ron McClain (ankle) was also present for the open portion of practice and appears fully ready for the Texans after missing last week’s game.

McClain, Webb, and safety Tom Zbikowski (foot) were all listed as probable on the team’s official injury report for Monday’s game.

Despite Friday’s news of police searching receiver David Reed’s apartment in regards to possible narcotics, the rookie return man was present and returning kicks at Saturday’s practice. No immediate discipline is expected to be taken against him, and no charges have been filed to this point.

“He’ll play [against the Texans],” Harbaugh said following Saturday’s practice. “It’s not something that really affects his football status certainly at this time. He’ll have a chance to tell his side of it in the proper way when the time comes. We just have to see how it all shakes out.”

Dickson ready to step up

With Heap out against the Texans, rookie Ed Dickson has prepared all week to make his first career start as the team’s primary tight end. Despite playing the entire game against Pittsburgh after Heap exited on the first play, Dickson admitted his excitement level has climbed substantially this week despite the misfortune of his close friend and teammate.

“I’m just excited,” said Dickson, who had three catches for 21 yards against the Steelers. “I’m ready to get out there. After a loss like that, I’m ready to get back at it and get another victory.”

Dickson and quarterback Joe Flacco have put in extra time this week to develop a higher comfort level in the passing game. Of course, an underthrown pass to Dickson fell incomplete on a fourth-and-2 play that ended the Ravens’ bid for a comeback in the closing seconds against Pittsburgh.

“I feel really comfortable [in the offense]. It’s [about] getting that chemistry down between me and Flacco.”

Jump-starting the offense

The Ravens will look to get well offensively against the league’s 29th-ranked defense, but the means by which they’ll try to do it remain to be seen.

Harbaugh spoke earlier this week about his team’s need to become more physical in the running game where the Ravens are tied for 30th in yards per carry (3.6), a stark contrast from a season ago when Baltimore ranked fourth with a 4.7 yards per attempt clip.

However, the Texans’ biggest weakness lies in the pass defense where they’ve given up a staggering 287.4 yards per game, ranked 31st in the NFL. Establishing the run is critical on the road, but offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has to be licking his chops with an underachieving passing game desperate to prove its worth.

“Every week presents its own challenge,” said Harbaugh about the Houston defense. “We’ve got our hands full in a lot of ways. I think we’ve got to go out there and focus on what we do and try to do it well and try to attack the defense that’s presented to us. They’ve got a lot of good players.”

“Those two outside pass-rushers (Mario Williams and Antonio Smith), if you don’t handle those guys, nothing really matters. They’ve got a nice little blitz package, so it presents a big challenge for us.”

Taking care of business

The Ravens hold a 15-1 mark against teams with sub-.500 records during Harbaugh’s three-year tenure in Baltimore. The only loss came in Week 2 this season when they fell to the 0-1 Cincinnati Bengals.

However, much is at stake for both teams Monday night, as the Ravens desperately want to stay on the heels of the Steelers in the AFC North race and the Texans are holding on to their postseason hopes for dear life after losing five of six games after beginning the season 4-2.

The job status of fifth-year coach Gary Kubiak is on tenuous ground after many expected the Texans to finally break through for their first postseason berth in 2010.

“They’re one of the most talented teams in the league by far,” Harbaugh said. “We understand what kind of team we’re going down there to play. And we understand their mindset going into the game.”

Perhaps the biggest key for the Ravens to continue their success against below-.500 teams is a fast start in a primetime road game, something they were unable to do last month in Atlanta when the offense was shut out in the first half. A slow start against a high-powered Texans offense (ranked seventh in the NFL) that includes the league’s leading rusher in Arian Foster (1,230 yards) and star receiver Andre Johnson (71 catches, 1,018 yards) could prove disastrous.

“I think they’re going to come in with a different game plan and definitely try to have some different things we haven’t seen to match up against us,” linebacker Ray Lewis said. “But for us, it’s just for us going down there to play our type and style of football.”

The Ravens are 3-0 in the all-time series against the Texans, which includes two in Houston. The most recent came in 2008 when Baltimore dominated in a 41-13 victory.

Live From Owings Mills: Emotional Cam Cameron Says “That Was a Heck of a Blow the Other Night…But it Wasn’t a Fatal Blow”

Posted on 10 December 2010 by Glenn Clark

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens (8-4) returned to practice Friday at 1 Winning Drive, continuing preparations for their Monday Night Football showdown with the Houston Texans (5-7) at Reliant Stadium.

Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron met with the media Friday for the first time since coming under fire for questionable decisions at the end the team’s Week 13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium.

“There’s nothing that’s been said that I wouldn’t have already said” said Cameron. “You just didn’t get to me first.”

Cameron was specifically criticized for calling a pass play on 2nd & 5 late in the 4th quarter. The play resulted in Steelers safety Troy Polamalu sacking Ravens QB Joe Flacco and causing a fumble. The fumble was recovered by Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley inside the Ravens’ 10 yard line, setting up the Steelers’ game-winning touchdown pass.

“You’re looking at the guy responsible (for the result)” said Cameron. “There was a flaw in that protection…that I did not catch for some reason. In 25+ years, I’ve never seen that happen. It showed up at the worst time it possibly could have. It’s my job to catch that flaw, and that flaw has been corrected.”

Cameron also defended the play call in general.

“I think football is way beyond running and throwing. It’s executing the run, executing the pass. This is 2010. That’s just the way it is. You call a run, you execute it. You call a pass, you execute it. It’s about execution. That’s the thing we have to remember.”

Cameron made sure to state his belief that the team could bounce back from the tough loss.

“That was a heck of a blow the other night, I get that. But it wasn’t a fatal blow. The confidence I have starting with Joe (Flacco) all the way through this offense ain’t changing. You can look at it however you want to look at it. When we come off that field, we’re going to give our players a chance to have won the game for us, and I trust these guys. It didn’t work out the other night, but it’s going to work out a lot more than it isn’t.

PRACTICE REPORT: TE Todd Heap missed practice again Friday as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury suffered in the team’s  loss to the Steelers. Heap is not expected to be available Monday night.

CB Fabian Washington (thigh) did not participate in Friday’s practice either. His status is not believed to be in jeopardy for Monday night. CB Lardarius Webb (thigh) was a limited participant, FB Le’Ron McClain (ankle) was a full participant.

The Texans have ruled TE Garrett Graham (hamstring) out for Monday’s game. WR Andre Johnson (ankle) and DE Mario Williams (groin) were limited participants in practice Friday.

LB Xavier Adibi (hamstring), G Mike Brisiel (shoulder) LB Brian Cushing (knee), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring), TE Joel Dreessen (ribs), CB Glover Quin (hand), QB Matt Schaub (knee) and OT Eric Winston (shoulder) were all full participants in Texans practice Friday.

NOTES: Hear from Cameron, Defensive Coordinator Greg Mattison, Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg and S Ed Reed now in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault here at WNST.net……FB Jason McKie joined Drew Forrester Friday on “The Morning Reaction” on AM1570 WNST, that chat is available in the Audio Vault as well……According to Weather.com/The Weather Channel, temperatures are expected to between 40 and 50 degrees Monday night in Houston, the Texans are planning to keep the roof open at Reliant Stadium……The Ravens will return to practice Saturday at 1 Winning Drive. Head Coach John Harbaugh is scheduled to meet with the media following Saturday’s practice
