The Ravens don't want to risk any major injuries in training camp.
So it's a good sign that left guard Kelechi Osemele returned to practice on Monday after injuring his right hamstring last Thursday. Osemele was participating in positional drills and kept his footwork active.
It remains to be seen how much Osemele does in team drills. The last thing the Ravens' coaching staff wants to do is aggravate a hamstring injury.
Though Osemele returned, there are still a handful of players sitting practice out.
Wide receiver LaQuan Williams (arm), linebacker Jameel McClain (spinal cord contusion), defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore (knee), receiver Marlon Brown (ACL), guard/center Ryan Jensen (leg) and guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder) were absent from the early portion of practice.
The Ravens are practicing once again in full pads, which marks the third day in a row they're doing so.
The Ravens will take their first break of training camp on Tuesday, when they take the day off.
