Outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw dropped roughly 20 pounds over the summer after tipping the scales at 295 pounds in June. Upshaw attributed that weight gain to missing workouts while dealing with personal issues in his home state of Alabama. Although he still has more weight to drop to get into optimal condition, Upshaw moved around more fluidly and seemed to have better stamina after appearing sluggish during a June minicamp. “I feel great. I'm still working to get down some more pounds,” Upshaw said.

When the Ravens waived outside linebacker John Simon and guard-center Ryan Jensen -- both ultimately were re-signed to the practice squad -- I pointed out that in a little more than 16 months, they had cut four of their 10 selections from the 2013 draft. Neither of their seventh-round picks -- wide receiver Aaron Mellette or cornerback Marc Anthony -- ever played a game for the team, nor has sixth-rounder Kapron Lewis-Moore , albeit because of injuries. When you throw in the fact that first-rounder Matt Elam had a disappointing rookie season and Arthur Brown , Brandon Williams , Kyle Juszczyk and Rick Wagner had limited roles last year, it's fair to say that the organization has gotten disappointing early returns from the 2013 draft class.

The Ravens announced Monday that they had activated wide receiver David Reed from the physically unable to perform list and placed safety Anthony Levine on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Reed, 25, a 2010 fifth-round draft pick, hasn't played since he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 16 of the 2011 season. He was not ready for the start of training camp and he was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of the regular season, as his surgically-repaired knee was not fully healed.

SETTING THE SCENE The Ravens' final official practice of training camp started around noon with a walk-through practice and ended just before 3 p.m. Most of the starters finished up just after 2:30 p.m. Players wore helmets and shells. Like it was for most of camp, it was sunny and relatively mild. LOOKING GOOD Tight end Dennis Pitta was sidelined earlier this week by an ankle injury and he spent the early part of practice testing it out. Once he got on the field, he certainly looked healthy, making several plays down the field.

The Ravens continued the renovation of their defense on Wednesday, signing former Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff to a three-year deal worth $6 million. He is the fourth defender the Ravens have signed in free agency, along with pass rusher Elvis Dumervil and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears. With the Ravens being forced to pinch pennies and cut ties with a couple of valuable veterans due to their tight salary cap situation, we have been talking a lot about the “right player at the right price” this offseason.

Setting the scene: The Ravens practiced in shorts and shells in a no-contact practice that began on a cool, sunny morning around 8:30 a.m. and extended until around 1 p.m. Practice was almost eerie, with players seeming to know the spectacle that was about to follow after practice . Juiced: Second-year fullback Kyle Jusczcyzk is going to be a receiving threat out of the backfield, but he has shown his blocking capabilities over the...

The Ravens continue to fill holes on their defense and at a significantly lower price than the players who departed. About a week after their long-time free safety Ed Reed signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Houston Texans, the Ravens settled on a potential replacement, agreeing in principle to a three-year, $6 million pact with former Oakland Raider Michael Huff on Wednesday. Huff, who was released March 12 as part of the Raiders' roster purge, will be at the Ravens' facility Thursday to take his physical and sign his contract.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel highlights five stats that really mean something for the Ravens. 66.7 - percentage of first-down plays Sunday in which Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco attempted a pass. In an attempt to catch the Pittsburgh Steelers off guard Sunday, the Ravens changed up their tendencies on first down. Instead of running the ball, which they had done on 55.8 percent of their first-down plays entering Week 7, the Ravens threw the ball on 16 of 24 first-down plays, or 66.7 percent.

With the Ravens missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007, this figures to be a long offseason for the organization and its fans. Here are some key dates to remember as the offseason unfolds: Jan. 26: Pro Bowl, Honolulu: The Pro Bowl was even more of an afterthought last year to the Ravens, who were busy preparing for Super Bowl XLVII. This year, right guard Marshal Yanda, rush linebacker Terrell Suggs, nose tackle Haloti Ngata and kicker Justin Tucker have been selected to play in the game.

As Ravens reserve safety Anthony Levine sprinted down the field, his eyes locked onto Pittsburgh Steelers return man Emmanuel Sanders. At the time, he didn't know about the positioning of the rest of the Ravens' coverage team or what kind of contact kicker Justin Tucker had made with the ball. All he knew was that Sanders had fielded a bouncing ball 7 yards deep in the end zone and had decided to bring it out. "We were running down, and my mind says, 'I'm going to make this tackle so we would get this stop, and let's go win this game,'" Levine said.

SETTING THE SCENE: Friday's outdoor practice started at 2:30 p.m. and ended at 5. Weather was partially cloudy with temperatures in the low 80s. Players were in full pads for the sixth straight practice. DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK: There may not be anyone better at throwing the deep comeback than Joe Flacco. It is one of the most difficult and dangerous throws for a quarterback to make, but Flacco makes it look so easy. Flacco fired accurate passes on comebacks to Jacoby Jones and LaQuan Williams as they were making their breaks.
