Wednesday Ravens links: Players on the mend for OTAs, inside linebacker breakdown

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Read what others are writing about the Baltimore Ravens.

Today is the first day for organized team activities in Baltimore, which means a first look at how the team will shape out for this upcoming season.

Then again, there are some players that won't be able to go. Despite the obvious big names that usually skip OTAs (Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata), there are quite a few players that may not be able to participate due to injury.

One of those potential absences is seventh-round draft pick Michael Campanaro, who tweaked his hamstring during the week leading up to rookie minicamp. The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has a list of the remaining players that are dealing with injuries at this time of the year.

This will be the second season that the Ravens will be without Ray Lewis at the middle linebacker spot.

While Daryl Smith held his own in Lewis' spot, the Ravens could use some help at the Will position, where Jameel McClain used to play before being cut this offseason. Purple Reign Show's Rob Michels broke down the position group and said there will be a three-man rotation at inside linebacker.

Russell Street Report's Logan Quick wonders if Gino Gradkowski can win a spot along the interior offensive line this offseason, whether it's at center or guard.
