OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - For the first time in years, the Baltimore Ravens held their first training camp session without linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed.
The defending NFL champions underwent a huge transformation during the offseason, and Thursday marked their first full practice since the week of the Super Bowl.
Over the past few months, Lewis and center Matt Birk retired, Reed signed as a free agent with Houston and several other key players went elsewhere.
Coach John Harbaugh acknowledged that practice had a strange feel, noting, "Sure, it was different. ... There's a lot of change this year."
Left tackle Bryant McKinnie did not practice because he is "too heavy right now," according to Harbaugh.
Guard Marshal Yanda and linebacker Jameel McClain are on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
