The Baltimore Ravens kicked off the pads-on part of their training camp on Monday, July 31, at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Md. They did so by clearing their injured list with all players not into the PUP/NFI being available and training with the Flock mob.

Both wide receiver Zay Flowers (illness) and cornerback Pepe Williams (ankle) returned to the field following absences that lasted days and weeks respectively, as reported by Kyle Phoenix Barber of Baltimore Beatdown ahead of Day 5 of training camp.

Flowers was nowhere to be found on Friday without the Ravens providing any information about his absence. It was later known, or better said rumored, that he was just going through some stomach illness.

One day later, on Saturday, July 29, John Harbaugh confirmed that the rookie had been out with a stomach bug but the WR was roaming the M&T Bank Stadium along with his teammates although not practicing.

Williams had started training camp on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) with an ankle injury. Monday marked his return to the field, and his first appearance in training camp this summer.

It will be interesting to see how the return of Pepe Williams changes the dynamic of the practices, as some other borderline/ancillary players had taken advantage of his absence to get more reps and put on some solid production.

The day ended on a bad-not-horrible note as Geno Stone had to leave the field with just a few minutes left before the team called it a day on Monday. Stone seemingly suffered an ankle injury, but he was able to walk off the field by himself.

Speaking after practice and asked about Stone's status, coach Harbaugh said that the injury "didn't look too serious" and that the franchise will provide more information in the near future.
