The Ravens opened training camp Wednesday in Owings Mills. Here’s what you need to know.


Did not participate: Running back J.K. Dobbins (physically unable to perform list), fullback Patrick Ricard (hip, PUP list), wide receiver Rashod Bateman (soreness, PUP list), wide receiver Makai Polk, outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (soreness, non-football-injury list), cornerback Damarion Williams (ankle, PUP list) and cornerback Trayvon Mullen (NFI list)

Left early: Cornerback Jordan Swann

Notes: Coach John Harbaugh said after practice that Bateman, who missed mandatory minicamp while recovering from Lisfranc (foot) surgery, and Bowser, who had a knee flare-up before minicamp and was limping as he reported to camp Tuesday, are dealing with soreness unrelated to recent season-ending injuries. Bateman underwent his Lisfranc surgery last year, while Bowser recovered from a torn Achilles tendon. Harbaugh said their recovery timetables are “reasonable” but declined to specify when they might return.

Dobbins, wearing sweats, came out to watch approximately the last half-hour of practice alongside team owner Steve Bisciotti, President Sashi Brown and general manager Eric DeCosta. Despite also having missed mandatory minicamp, Dobbins appeared on good terms with the Ravens officials. “There’s always a lot of things that go into football,” Harbaugh said of his absence, “but there’s some complexity to it and we’re working through all that.”

Swann, an undrafted rookie, left practice with an athletic trainer after an early special teams period. He did not return.
