OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Taking part in what amounted to little more than a walk-through ahead of Thursday’s preseason opener against New Orleans, the Ravens welcomed back two members of their starting secondary to practice.
Cornerback Lardarius Webb (hamstring) and free safety Kendrick Lewis (leg) were present and working as the Ravens practiced at half-speed in helmets, shells, and shorts on Tuesday. Webb had left practice early on Monday after pulling up gimpy covering a deep route while Lewis was absent on Monday after tweaking his leg midway through Saturday’s workout.
With both players missing minimal practice time, they would appear to remain good bets to be able to play against the Saints.
Wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee), offensive linemen John Urschel (concussion) and Robert Myers (concussion), and defensive linemen Timmy Jernigan (foot), DeAngelo Tyson (strain), and Christo Bilukidi (undisclosed) did not take part in Tuesday’s practice. Tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) and safety Terrence Brooks (knee) remain on the active physically unable to perform list as we approach the first preseason game.
Periman missed his 10th consecutive practice after spraining his knee in the first full-squad workout of the summer and will not play in the preseason opener. The Ravens originally estimated the rookie first-round pick would only miss a couple days.
Head coach John Harbaugh did not specify where Tyson’s injury was, but he indicated the reserve defensive tackle still had a chance to play on Thursday.
