Ravens camp update

July 26, 1998|By GARY LAMBRECHT

Schedule: No morning practice today. Afternoon workout begins at 2: 40 p.m.

Confrontation of the day: During one-on-one, pass-protection drills, right offensive tackle Orlando Brown and left defensive end Rob Burnett went at it. After Burnett had beaten Brown twice, Brown got the best of him, as the two locked up, butted helmets repeatedly, exchanged some unprintable words and had to be separated.

Best hands: Fullback Tony Vinson is looking for a role as a third-down back. He didn't hurt himself by making two shoe-top catches coming out of the backfield.

Big-play guys: Cornerback Rod Woodson wasted no time establishing himself. On the first play of the morning workout's 7-on-7 drill, he stepped in front of Jermaine Lewis and intercepted Jim Harbaugh. In the afternoon workout, second-year cornerback John Williams, covering Ryan Yarborough on a fly pattern down the sideline, timed his leap perfectly to pick off Eric Zeier.

Starks watch: The rookie cornerback's holdout stretched into its fifth day, with no end in sight.

Quotable: "Timing is everything in life." -- Tailback Errict Rhett, when asked why he wears a watch on the field.
