Secondary coach Teryl Austin said that the team will “probably” know after Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers whether rookie first-round pick Matt Elam or veteran James Ihedigbo will start at safety opposite veteran Michael Huff. “It's a heck of a battle for the starting safety spots between those three guys and, as always, we'll put the best people on the field, the people we feel give us the best chance to win,” he said. “And when we make that determination - probably after this weekend - we'll know who our starters are.” To this point, Ihedigbo, who started three games for the Ravens last year and 12 the previous season with the New England Patriots, has been able to hold off the rookie and start the first two preseason games.

Michael Huff can relate to the immediate expectations with which rookie safety Matt Elam is dealing. He was once a first-round draft pick who had to help replace a perennial Pro Bowl defensive back who had left town. So Huff has taken it upon himself to teach Elam everything he knows about being a full-time professional. “Especially for a first-round pick safety following a legend, I've been there,” said Huff, the former Oakland Raiders defensive back who signed with the Ravens as a free agent this spring.

Corey Graham was the most effective Ravens cornerback after injuries to Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith pushed him into the starting lineup in 2012. In fact, Graham was actually one of the NFL's most effective, too. According to Football Outsiders, Graham allowed just 5.7 yards per pass attempt, which ranked fifth among NFL cornerbacks last season. Graham also ranked fifth in success rate, which is a statistic that Football Outsiders defines as “is the percentage of passes that don't manage to get at least 45 percent of needed yards on first down, 60 percent of needed yards on second down, or 100 percent of needed yards on third down.” Wednesday, I asked Ravens secondary Teryl Austin how Graham did such a good job of limiting the damage.

CATCH OF THE DAY: Usually awarded to an offensive player, linebacker Anthony Leon took the honor. During a 7-on-7 drill, quarterback Hunter Cantwell slung a pass over the middle that was tipped by linebacker Josh Bynes. Bynes tried to haul in the pass, but the ball traveled down the front of his jersey before caroming off the top of his shoe. That's when Leon snatched the ball from the top of his shoelaces and returned it for several yards before getting held up by some of the offensive players.

According to a league source, Ravens coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron spent all day Tuesday questioning quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn about his teaching methods with Joe Flacco and were concerned about Zorn being insubordinate. Zorn was fired by the Ravens on Thursday. Harbaugh disputed that report, saying it is "inaccurate and unfair to Jim Zorn" and "in no way does it describe Jim's relationship with the Ravens, and that includes with his fellow coaches while here and our players.

After the 2011 campaign that Lardarius Webb enjoyed, many observers were quick to favorably compare the cornerback to his peers like the Denver Broncos' Champ Bailey, the New York Jets' Darrelle Revis and the Green Bay Packers' Charles Woodson. Webb himself, however, isn't as eager to jump into that discussion. "Not yet," he said when asked if he deserved to be mentioned with the top cornerbacks in the NFL. "A lot of people are trying to put me there, but not yet. I still have a ways to go. It starts this year.

In his first public comments since reporting to Ravens' training camp last week, there was no sign of the bitter and withdrawn Ed Reed that surfaced at various points of the offseason. The mercurial safety, who is entering the final year of his contract, said Wednesday he hopes to play beyond this season, expressed a desire to remain with the Ravens and maintained that his complete focus is on getting ready for the 2012-13 campaign. “Talks have already been there. I know [ general manager Ozzie Newsome]

There is a lot to take in when 80 or more players are competing at different stations at a three-day mandatory minicamp, though some of my colleagues in the media may argue that there really isn't much worth watching. Still, of all the Ravens buzzing around out at The Castle, Matt Elam was one who consistently caught my eye. All week, the rookie safety was one of the most active players on defense, both before and after the snap. Elam, the team's first-round draft pick out of Florida, made one of the most impressive plays of the week on Wednesday, when he was lined up as a single high safety.

I never put a lot of stock in OTAs because the season is still a few months away and there could be some significant changes to the roster before the regular season opener. But here are a few casual observations from watching the first workout open to the media Wednesday.... It's impressive watching those big bodies on the Ravens defensive line. There is so much depth there with the additions of Marcus Spears and Chris Canty (who was present for some of Tuesday's workout). A team can never have enough of them, and the Ravens are stout in this area.

Cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Tandon Doss got into a heated argument during Monday's practice but they were separated before the altercation got physical. It all started when Williams and wide receiver Torrey Smith exchanged a few words, with Williams accusing Smith of holding him. Then Doss, who sat out the practice with a minor hamstring injury, began taunting Williams loudly from near the huddle. After Doss lobbed insults at Williams from about 10 yards away for a minute or two, he finally got under the cornerback's skin.
