Friday was another scorcher, and it lead to at least one player cramping up.  We got a little confirmation on Breshad Perriman, who only suffered a knee bruise after landing on it Thursday.  Joining Perriman on the sideline Friday were a couple of veterans, but thankfully nothing serious.  Meanwhile, the wide receiver battle raged on…

  • Lardarius Webb returned to practice after failing his conditioning test on Thursday.  In all fairness, lots of players came to his defense after yesterday, touting just how tough John Harbaugh’s conditioning tests really are.  Webb fielded some punts on Friday but didn’t participate in any scrimmages.
  • Breshad Perriman’s exit Thursday from practice while favoring his knee understandably scared a lot of people, but thankfully he only suffered a bruise.  Harbaugh considers the rookie day to day.
  • Steve Smith made the play of the day on a bomb from Joe Flacco:
  • Elvis Dumervil joined Perriman on the sidelines with tendinitis in his knee, which is also not considered to be serious.
  • Timmy Jernigan left practice early with cramps caused by some dehydration.
  • Undrafted rookie wide receiver Daniel Brown out of James Madison has impressed the coaching staff so far.
  • Jimmy Smith said his recovery from foot surgery is an ‘uphill climb,’ but acknowledged that he’s on the right track.

  • Steve Smith reaffirmed that he doesn’t anticipate a reduction in snaps this season, even telling the press that he would be willing to return punts if needed.
  • Arthur Brown made a play today, grabbing a dropped Buck Allen pass and returning it for a touchdown.
  • Jimmy Smith said that Breshad Perriman is ‘unbelievably fast’ in a straight line, while Torrey Smith would break on a route.  Would need to see them race to see who was faster.
  • Jeremy Butler continues to put on a show, grabbing contested pass after contested pass and looked very fluid in and out of his cuts.
  • Maxx Williams has not looked very good so far and was limping a bit on Friday, while Nick Boyle continued to impress.
  • DeAndre Carter looked good on short-to-intermediate routes, but struggled a little on the deep ones.
  • Marlon Brown made a few big plays and stood out, while Kamar Aiken started in Perriman’s place and dropped two passes.
