Boller gets MRI,roster moves,and practice notes

Posted on 26 August 2008 by caseywillett

 

So the big new coming out of 1 Winning Drive this afternoon is that Kyle Boller has had an MRI and did not even throw the football today.
 
This to me is very alarming news in my opinion a reason for concern. I do not think the Ravens can go into the year with just Joe Flacco and Troy Smith. I would not be surprised if we see the Ravens watching the waiver wire over the next couple of days. The fact that he has not thrown a football I think is a major concern.
 
Coach Harbaugh did say that Troy Smith was here for meetings this morning and left the facility. Right now it sounds like it is about getting Troy’s energy make up and mentioned that Troy has not eaten in 3 or 4 days.
 
Never thought this quarterback competition would become a made for television show.

 

 

So the Ravens have made their first wave of roster cuts with the following moves:

 
Released:
 
Aaron Walker (TE)
Darnerien McCants (WR)
 
IR’ed
 
Dwan Edwards (back)
Terrence Melton (hand)
Kelly Talavou (shoulder)
 
Here are some notes from practice:
          Kyle Boller was watching practice wearing a baseball cap on the sideline. He did not do any drills during the media portion of practice and did not have his helmet with him.
 
          Troy Smith was not at practice this morning
 
 
          Demetrius Williams has come off of the physically unable to perform list and was in uniform and at practice this morning
 
          Tavares Gooden returned to practice this morning
 
 
          Chris McAlister was at practice this morning still wearing a knee brace
 
          Missing from practice today was : Troy Smith, Ed Reed, Willis McGahee, Derrick Martin, Fabian Washington, Marcus Smith, and Kelly Gregg.

Notes from Ravens morning practice

Posted on 18 August 2008 by caseywillett

Several of the players who have been missing at different times during camp, returned to the football field this morning:
 
Welcome Back: Haloti Ngata, Todd Heap, Dan Wilcox, Adam Terry, Chris McAlister, Samari Rolle, David Pittman, Derrick Mason, and Terrell Suggs all were on the football field this afternoon.
 
Still missing in action: Kerry Reed, Willis McGahee, Derrick Martin, Dan Cody, Jared Gaither, Lorenzo Williams, Demetrius Williams, Kelly Gregg, and Kelly Talavou
 
Terrell Suggs walked out onto the field side by side with Ray Lewis, then went over to defensive line and started to stretch with them.
 
The practice this morning was in soft shells and shorts, so some of these guys will participate a little more than if they were in full pads.
 
Le’Ron McClain has now switched his jersey number from #37 to number #33.
