Setting the scene: Ravens players took the field just before 8:30 a.m., wearing shorts and shells. The noncontact workout ended around 11:30 a.m. It was a relatively quiet and uneventful practice, with the players undoubtedly appreciating the overcast skies and mild temperatures. Not just a punter: The Ravens have long considered Sam Koch one of the best athletes on the team, and he showed Friday that there was more in his repertoire than just punting. With Justin Tucker getting the day off, Koch and rookie punter Richie Leone were given opportunities to kick field goals.

Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said one of the biggest competitions of training camp is at wide receiver. "In all my years in the league, I don't know that I've ever seen as competitive a situation as we have at receiver right now," Kubiak said. "I would have no chance telling [coach] John [Harbaugh] which five or six I would want right now. " The top of the depth chart includes Steve Smith , Torrey Smith (Maryland) and Jacoby Jones , with Marlon Brown the likely fourth receiver.

Veteran strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil arrived at his second training camp with the Ravens last week bigger than he did the previous year, but said Thursday that he's adapting to his added bulk well thus far. β€œIt was a little adjustment, but I think I'm on the right track, so I feel good about it,” Dumervil said Thursday. β€œ[I'm] just trying to maximize every opportunity in practice, in training camp, so by Week 1, we'll be hitting and ready to roll.” Dumervil said he added weight - he's now listed at 253 pounds - for physical and mental reasons.

A worn and fractured rail along train tracks through Ellicott City caused the coal train derailment that killed two women in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday. In its final report on the accident, the NTSB said it found evidence that the section of CSX Transportation rail showed signs of "gradual deterioration of the rail-head surface" from passing trains. The finding makes official preliminary conclusions about a rail break contributing to the accident that were released in a docket of investigatory documents last month.

Two of the Ravens' most promising defensive rookies suffered injuries Wednesday at training camp. Defensive end Brent Urban, a fourth round draft pick out of Virginia, was carted off the field into the training room, unable to put weight on his right leg. Urban has injured his right knee and will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam tonight to determine the severity of the damage. Urban had ankle surgery in February following the Senior Bowl, but had fully recovered from the procedure.

One of the vehicle's wheels became stuck under the front skirt of the train, Austrich said.

The Ravens' top decision makers are always preaching about the importance of roster competition. They want it at every position, not just for starting roles but for special teams units and back-end roster spots. Heading into training camp which officially begins with the first full-squad practice on Thursday, the Ravens' front office has assembled a 90-man roster that will need to be whittled down to 53 in the coming weeks. The roster has a mixture of youth and experience and is particularly deep at wide receiver where 12 guys are competing for five or six spots.
