OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Though linebacker Jameel McClain’s status remains in serious doubt, the Ravens once again expressed optimism Wednesday over the recovery of Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda.
Yanda has yet to take part in practice this summer after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier in the offseason. Coach John Harbaugh revealed the news of Yanda’s surgery during the team’s mandatory minicamp in mid-June and suggested at the time that the offensive lineman could be limited at the start of training camp.
Despite passing his physical late last week, Yanda remains on the active physically unable to perform list along with McClain, who still hasn’t been cleared for contact after suffering a spinal cord contusion last December. Yanda has increased his activity level, but Harbaugh wasn’t ready to pinpoint when we’ll see the seventh-year lineman take part in afternoon practices.
“I don’t want to put an exact date on it, but it will be in training camp pretty good,” Harbaugh said. “We aren’t in a rush with him. [He is] very much on schedule. He’s doing certain things. He does things in the morning. He goes through the morning workout. He goes through some individual stuff, so he’s practicing. He’s just not going through the contact stuff, but he’s doing very, very well.”
The expectation remains that Yanda will be ready long before the season opener against Denver on Sept. 5.
Offensive lineman Ramon Harewood remained sidelined on Wednesday after seeing a doctor because of continued swelling in his knee. According to Harbaugh, he will receive an injection to relieve some of the friction in hopes of getting him back on the practice field sooner rather than later.
Rookie cornerback Marc Anthony left the field with a left shoulder strain during practice that isn’t considered serious.
Other players not participating in Wednesday’s practice included offensive lineman Ryan Jensen (broken foot) and tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) as well as defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore (knee), who remains on the non-football injury list.
Returning to the practice field were wide receivers LaQuan Williams (arm), Tommy Streeter (heat-related sickness), and Marlon Brown (knee).
The returning Vonta Leach participated in his first workout of training camp after signing a two-year deal on Monday and walked onto the practice field with backfield partner Ray Rice.
