Ramon Harewood has been with the Ravens for two seasons, but the 6-foot-6 offensive tackle has yet to play a single snap in a game that counted in the standings. He has spent the past two seasons on the injured reserve -- he had knee surgery in 2010 then an ankle injury in 2011 -- and will try to lock down a roster spot this summer. The Ravens selected Harewood, now 25, out of Morehouse in the sixth round of the 2010 draft . Physically imposing at a relatively fit 340 pounds, Harewood has spent time at both left tackle and right tackle this spring, though after playing mostly left tackle in college, he admits that “it feels a little weird over there” on the right.

It is not the beginning of the football season unless there are questions about the Ravens offensive line. Unlike previous years, there is talent, so few wonder how good this unit can be. The big concern is about depth, or lack of it. If the Ravens can make it through the season without serious injuries, they might have one of the best lines in the AFC. If not, barring a late acquisition, they are in trouble. That was clearly evident Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers.

The Ravens deactivated a few surprises for Sunday's home game against the Dallas Cowboys, including starting left guard Ramon Harewood. Harewood had started the first five contests, but he appeared to struggle slightly in his last two outings. The Sun reported Friday that Harewood would be replaced in the starting lineup by Bobbie Williams. The team also elected to sideline kick returner Deonte Thompson. The undrafted rookie ranked 13th in the NFL in kick return average (25.9 yards)

Before the start of training camp, the Ravens were looking for a No.2 wide receiver. And after the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night, they are still in search of that player. The Ravens were quite conservative in their offensive approach against the Buccaneers, and quarterback Joe Flacco seemed more content staying with the short passing game than going vertical. The strategy cut down on the number of chances for receivers. But when there were opportunities, the receivers didn't make the best of them as there were several drops, including one by veteran Jacoby Jones, who started opposite of Torrey Smith.

As he watched the 2011 campaign unfold while sitting on injured reserve for the second time in as many years, Ramon Harewood said he was driven by one thought: proving the Ravens that they made the right decision when they used a sixth-round pick on him in the 2010 draft. “In my head, I'm thinking that they saw something in me,” he recalled after Tuesday's practice at the team's headquarters in Owings Mills. “So my thought process was, 'Get back on the field and do what you're supposed to do.' Right now, that's what I'm trying to do.” The 6-foot-6, 334-pound Harewood is currently a backup tackle.

Three defensive starters return to practice In addition to the return of nose tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu and cornerback Jimmy Smith, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata practiced Thursday, according to an injury report released by the Ravens. Ngata, who did not participate in Wednesday's session and was absent during the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, is trying to overcome a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee and an injured right shoulder suffered in Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Ravens have talked about adding some offensive linemen during the draft, but they need to improve their evaluations. Since head coach John Harbaugh joined the Ravens, the team hasn't fared well as far as selecting offensive linemen. In 2008, they selected UTEP offensive tackle Oniel Cousins in the third round. He is no longer with the team. In 2009, they selected Mississippi offensive tackle Michael Oher in the first round. Oher has been solid, but not the dominant type or even the starting left offensive tackle the Ravens expected.

Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb returned to practice Saturday afternoon after being excused from Friday's training camp workout to take care of a personal matter. That was the only change in participation from Friday's practice. Offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie was again a no-show at practice and could be subject to another day's worth of fines. On Friday, fellow offensive tackle Michael Oher, who has taken over for McKinnie on the left side, said that he had talked to McKinnie and expected him to return to the team soon.

As the Ravens took the practice field today, they were without four offensive linemen, a group that includes two starters and one key reserve. Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder surgery), left guard Kelechi Osemele (right hamstring), guard/tackle Ramon Harewood (undisclosed) and rookie center Ryan Jensen (leg) are all not on the field during the early portion of Ravens' training camp practice today at the Under Armour Performance Center. Left tackle Bryant McKinnie was practicing as he tries to work himself back into shape.

Ravens rookie guard/tackle Kelechi Osemele was taken off the physically unable to perform list and returned to practice today, but cornerback Lardarius Webb was not among the participants. Webb did practice yesterday and there's no early word on what prompted today's absence. Ravens coach John Harbaugh will speak to reporters later today. Left tackle Bryant McKinnie , who is currently on the reserve/did not report list, also remains away from the team, and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (hamstring)

John Harbaugh updated the status of a couple of Ravens players after Wednesday's practice. The coach said Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda is on track in his recovery after offseason shoulder surgery. Yanda hasn't yet participated in a full-squad afternoon practice during training camp, but Harbaugh said the guard has been doing work in the mornings and he is performing well. He said there is no timetable for Yanda to return, but he expects Yanda to return to full contact sometime during training camp.

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.

Over the last couple of weeks, the Ravens have added and retained seven offensive linemen, further complicating what figures to be one of the more competitive -- if not interesting -- position battles in training camp. They drafted Wisconsin tackle Rick Wagner in the fifth round and Ryan Jensen , a tackle from Colorado State University-Pueblo, in the sixth. Immediately after the draft, they agreed to undrafted free agent deals with tackles Jordan Devey (Memphis), Rogers Gaines (Tennessee State)

The common conclusion from the Ravens' decision to re-sign Bryant McKinnie was that the organization wasn't yet comfortable with the idea of Kelechi Osemele starting at left tackle. I'm sure there is plenty of truth to that even though team officials suggest that's not the case. However, the reason why the McKinnie move was a no-brainer - at least in my mind - was that the Ravens couldn't risk potentially weakening two positions along the offensive line. Osemele may very well develop into a quality left tackle in the NFL. However, who replaces Osemele at left guard?

Last summer, it looked as if the Ravens might enter the regular season with one of the oldest starting offensive lines in the NFL. Matt Birk, Bryant McKinnie and Bobbie Williams were all in their mid-thirties and expected to start. But as it turned out, both McKinnie and Williams started the season on the bench and only Birk played. With voluntary organized team activities and a mandatory minicamp coming up on us quickly, all three of those guys are gone (though there is a chance the Ravens may bring McKinnie, a free agent, back if the price is right)

If the Ravens' offensive line keeps progressing, this unit could be very good by the end of the season. Overall, with the exception of center Matt Birk, the group is still young. But once you throw rookie offensive right tackle Kelechi Osemele and third-year left guard Ramon Harewood into the mix, the line has made steady progress. In the Ravens' AFC championship game loss to New England last season, the Patriots dominated the Ravens' offensive line. But Sunday night, the Ravens overpowered New England while running the football.

REED, SUGGS RETURN: Seven-time Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed made his first appearance at training camp on Saturday, but he participated mostly in individual drills. Four-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs also made his first appearance since being activated off of the team's non-football injury list, and he participated fully. CATCH OF THE DAY: During a 7-on-7 exercise, quarterback Hunter Cantwell's slant pass glanced off the fingertips of rookie cornerback Chykie Brown, but wide receiver James Hardy still hauled in the pass in the back of the end zone.

Ravens offensive guard Ramon Harewood is spending part of the off-season back home in Barbados, where later this week he will host a football camp for children on the island. The "Big Mon Elite Athlete Development Camp" is set to begin Thursday and will include appearances by Harewood's Ravens teammates, including Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Michael Oher and Bryan Hall. "The strong academic foundation and diverse athletic training I received growing up in Barbados has enabled me to achieve success on many levels as an adult and it is an honor to share what I have learned with the younger generation," said Harewood, who grew up in the town of St. Michael, Barbados, where he played volleyball, track and field, cricket and soccer before transferring to Morehouse in Atlanta to play football.
