Ravens report

September 01, 2007|By JAMISON HENSLEY

FLIPPING SIDES

In case Jonathan Ogden can't play the season opener with a toe injury, the Ravens moved Adam Terry from right tackle to left tackle. Jared Gaither had started at left tackle for the first three preseason games, but the Ravens could be concerned about having a rookie protect quarterback Steve McNair's blind side. Rookie third-round pick Marshal Yanda started at right tackle.

LONG BALL

Receiver Demetrius Williams faked out backup cornerback David Irons on and out-and-up route, getting a couple of steps behind him before making a 59-yard touchdown catch. Williams, who made the catch at the 20-yard line, easily ran into the end zone for his first score of the preseason.

LEGWORK

Rhys Lloyd, who is trying to make the Ravens as a kickoff specialist, showed that he could be the long-range field-goal kicker, too. He hit a 55-yard field-goal attempt in the third quarter that could have been good from at least 60.

QUOTE TO NOTE

"It gave us another opportunity to get out there and get better. Now, we'll try to make the jump to the first game of the regular season at Cincinnati. We're trying to make sure that going into the regular season that we're going in strong." -Williams, on the preseason finale.

COMING ATTRACTION

The Ravens start the regular season Sept. 10 in Cincinnati. They have to make final major cutdown today to get down to their 53-man roster.
