Jah Reid has only been a professional football player for about a year now, but he knows that a lot could change in the NFL in the span of a couple of weeks. The Ravens could use their 29th overall draft pick in next Thursday's first round on a guard or they could just as easily sign one of the available free agents at the position. Reid, however, isn't spending a whole lot of time thinking about either scenario. He's too busy trying to earn the position for himself. "I have to go in and expect to play," Reid said [Thursday]

The Ravens will go over numerous scenarios in the days leading up to the NFL draft that might play out in the first round, but they probably won't make a move until they are on the clock with the No. 17 overall pick. And they could trade with another team and move back in the first round. The consensus among most top team executives and so-called experts is that this is a deep draft, and that most of the top 10 to 15 players will be gone when it's time for the Ravens to choose. So unless a highly rated player falls to the Ravens, general manager Ozzie Newsome could decide to move back to a slot between Nos. 24 and 28 in the first round.

The Ravens' Plan A at left guard was re-signing Pro Bowl performer Ben Grubbs, who eventually signed with the New Orleans Saints. Plan B was an aggressive bid at free agent Evan Mathis, who opted Saturday to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles. What is Plan C? The Ravens, of course, aren't going to publicly announce that to the media, but don't be surprised if it includes giving second-year player Jah Reid an extended look at left guard. Regardless of their plans for Reid, I think the Ravens will sign at least one free agent offensive lineman and add one or two more offensive linemen in the draft.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh briefly spoke to reporters at the team facility Tuesday, reiterating several things that he said at last week's NFL owners meetings. The team is still active on the free-agent market and remains in talks with the representatives of free-agent tight ends Ed Dickson and Owen Daniels. Harbaugh acknowledged that cornerback Corey Graham, who signed last month with the Buffalo Bills, was a significant loss, and while he has confidence in Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson, the Ravens are also looking to add another cornerback.

Offensive tackle Jah Reid, who has not participated in practice or a game since re-aggravating a strained right calf in a preseason contest against the Detroit Lions Sept. 17, appeared to take part in Friday's practice. Reid was active in individual drills involving the offensive linemen. His return cemented a full turnout for the Ravens Friday. Four starters who were limited in Thursday's session - cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), strong safety Bernard Pollard (bruised ribs), inside linebacker Jameel McClain (knee)

When I keep hearing that second-year player Jah Reid might be getting some playing time at left guard, there is cause for concern. I knew he was a project when the Ravens drafted him in the third round out of Central Florida, but I haven't seen anything that would warrant him getting playing time. He has spent more time in the training room for rehab than on the practice and playing fields. I'm concerned. To be even having this conversation means the Ravens are in deep trouble at left guard.

Two days before the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, it did not appear that there were any new absences at Ravens practice Saturday. Rookie cornerback Asa Jackson and offensive tackle Jah Reid were not on the field behind the team's training facility in Owings Mills. Jackson sat out Friday's session due to an illness, while Reid has not practiced the previous two days because of a strained right calf. Rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw and backup strong safety Sean Considine were present.

Just as owner  Steve Bisciotti  had done a day earlier, Ravens coach  John Harbaugh   stood firmly behind  Ray Rice  on Tuesday, saying that the running back “will be part of our team” in 2014. Harbaugh, however, did express disappointment that three of his players - Rice, wide receiver  Deonte Thompson  and offensive guard/tackle  Jah Reid   - were arrested in a 22-day span, calling their actions “unacceptable ... and disappointing.”   “You also separate the person from the activity and redemption is something we think is important as well,” Harbaugh said Tuesday morning at the NFL owners meetings at the  Ritz-Carlton  Orlando Grande Lakes resort.

One of John Harbaugh 's offensive tackles had been carted off the field and another was held out of this week's three-day mandatory minicamp so he could focus on his conditioning. After another hot practice under the bright sun, the Ravens' coach didn't feel like sharing any state secrets. Jah Reid , who spent most of the week at right tackle, was carted off the practice field midway through Thursday's final day of minicamp. His right leg rested on the back of the cart.

The Ravens released their first injury report of the week leading up to Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos, and Bernard Pierce did not practice Wednesday. The rookie running back, who is described as dealing with a knee injury, did not appear to participate in Tuesday's session. Fullback Vonta Leach also did not practice. He aggravated a sprained right ankle in Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard playoff round. Leach has sat out the last four Thursdays without missing a start.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made it clear that despite a busy two weeks, the Ravens aren't done in free agency. They still have more work to do throughout their roster, including an offensive line that remains under construction. Harbaugh revealed part of the organization's plans for the offensive line on Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings, indicating that recent trade acquisition Jeremy Zuttah will be the starting center and Kelechi Osemele is in line to start at left guard rather than right tackle.

ORLANDO -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh just spoke with reporters for about an hour on a variety of topics at the NFL owners meetings. Here are some of the highlights: Like owner Steve Bisciotti did a day earlier, Harbaugh again defended Ray Rice and said that, despite the running back's legal issues, Rice will be on the team in 2014. Harbaugh, however, acknowledged that the team's three arrests in a 22-day span were embarrassing and inexcusable. Harbaugh confirmed that Jeremy Zuttah , who was acquired Sunday for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, is projected as the starting center.

If the Ravens have to play without left guard Kelechi Osemele for the rest of the season because of a back injury , that hurts big time. Osemele is big, strong and downright nasty at times. But after watching him barely being able to walk down in Miami, it's a wonder he has made is this long. A.Q. Shipley did a nice job filling in for Osemele against the Dolphins, but he doesn't have Osemele's size or power. Jah Reid has Osemele's size, but he isn't athletic or mobile.

It was an unrelenting hit parade from the Carolina Panthers' defense, leaving behind a pile of fallen Ravens quarterbacks and running backs. During the Ravens' 34-27 preseason loss Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium, the offensive line struggled mightily at times as the Panthers finished with three sacks, eight tackles for losses and six quarterback hits. NFL teams don't generally create specific game plans during the preseason, but the Ravens admittedly didn't adjust well to the Panthers' aggressive, gap-shooting mixture of blitz packages and line stunts.

The Ravens are running out of excuses and cornerback Jimmy Smith is running out of time. We just keep waiting and waiting and waiting ... And so far, there has been very little production, at least for what you'd expect out of a first-round pick. When the Ravens selected Smith with the No. 27 overall pick out of Colorado in 2011, there was speculation that he could be another shutdown cornerback like Chris McAlister because he had size, speed and range. Since then, he has only proven that he can be a nickel back in the NFL. With Lardarius Webb out of the lineup Thursday night because of knee injury, Smith got a chance to start for a second straight preseason game, and again he didn't show much.

If the Ravens have a specific plan for filling the hole left by Ben Grubbs now that the draft has ended, they aren't divulging it. Not that anybody should be surprised. As is so often the case, coach John Harbaugh spoke fondly of the potential battle for playing time along the offensive line without giving any indication of how he thinks it may shake out. "I think it goes back to this: All things are possible," he said Saturday at the team's Owings Mills headquarters.

Lardarius Webb had the best seat in the house as the Ravens won the Super Bowl in February. He hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and has a giant diamond ring that serves as a blinged-out reminder that he was a champion. But he was lost for the season with a knee injury in Week 6 and was forced to watch from the sideline as his comrades defended their end zone in that desperate goal-line stand in the final moments of the Super Bowl. Webb said Thursday that he is driven by watching his Ravens teammates win the Super Bowl without him. “Very motivating,” he said.

As you read about the various training camp competitions over the next 10 days, you probably won't see much written about the offensive line. That's because barring injuries, the starters appear to be set. Bryant McKinnie , who re-signed with the Ravens in May, is the presumed starter at left tackle. Dominant after moving from right tackle to left guard for last year's playoff run, Kelechi Osemele will remain at that spot. Gino Gradkowski didn't start any games last year, but he's the clear favorite to start at center in place of the retired Matt Birk . If he is healthy, Marshal Yanda remains one of the best right guards in the NFL, while Michael Oher is entrenched at right tackle.
