The Baltimore Ravens held their first padded practice of training camp on Tuesday. For the football purists out there, this was the official start of training camp.
And for many, the official start of the football season.
After weeks/months of practices in t-shirts and shorts, the Ravens roster put on the pads and took to the field at the Under Armour Performance Center.
Baltimore was without a few players, however, as the likes of Lamar Jackson, Ronnie Stanley, Kevin Zeitler, Alejandro Villanueva, Marquise Brown, and Miles Boykin hindered what the offense could do.
It was once again Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley splitting reps at quarterback. And while the offense struggled, it was McSorley who looked the best completing 10 of his first 11 throws in 11-on-11 drills.
The offensive line had a rough day as injuries to many of the team’s top linemen had a significant impact on the performance of the offense.
The Ravens are banged up, but a few players still managed to impress in spite of — or perhaps as a direct result — of the injuries.
Which Ravens players impressed the most? We take a look at four of the biggest standouts from Baltimore’s first padded practice of training camp.
