(Updated: 9:00 p.m.)
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens took the field late Wednesday afternoon for their first full practice in preparation for the Philadelphia Eagles and were without two defensive starters.
Defensive end Pernell McPhee and strongside linebacker Paul Kruger were not present during the portion of practice open to the media. Arthroscopic knee surgery limited McPhee early in the preseason, and he received occasional days off during training camp.
The two players combined for just two tackles, though McPhee shared a quarterback sack with rookie linebacker Courtney Upshaw.
Center Matt Birk and offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf) were both on the field without helmets but were not working with the rest of the offensive linemen. It’s not uncommon for the 36-year-old Birk to receive days off from practice over the course of the regular season.
Safety Ed Reed (hamstring) and cornerback Corey Graham (leg) were both practicing after leaving Monday’s game with injuries. The free safety told reporters after the game he wasn’t concerned about the hamstring strain and fully expected to be ready for the Week 2 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. Graham appeared to be dealing with leg cramps in the second half of the 44-13 win over the Bengals.
Reed practiced on a limited basis while Graham was not listed on Wednesday’s injury report.
For Philadelphia, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin did not participate in Wednesday’s practice and is dealing with a hip injury.
BALTIMORE
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: C Matt Birk (thigh), LB Paul Kruger (back), DE Pernell McPhee (knee), T Jah Reid (leg)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: S Ed Reed (thigh)
PHILADELPHIA
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: WR Jeremy Maclin (hip)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: S Kurt Coleman (facial lacerations), WR Riley Cooper (collarbone), CB Curtis Marsh (hamstring)
FULL PARTICIPATION: S Colt Anderson (knee), WR Jason Avant (wrist)
