The saga continues for Bryant McKinnie.

The veteran left tackle, who regained his starting spot in the playoffs last season, was not spotted in the early portion of training camp. With the Ravens participating in individual drills, McKinnie was noticeably absent.

No immediate reason is known at this time. McKinnie was present for offseason workouts and had been around the team facility for quite a bit of time. Until Thursday, no signs indicated he would miss any practices in camp.

A year ago, McKinnie was late to training camp, sustaining a fall that injured his back outside of his south Florida home. That incident potentially cost McKinnie his starting job for the 2012 regular season as he spent the season as a backup, with Michael Oher starting all 16 games at left tackle.

McKinnie was reinstated as Baltimore's starter for the postseason and played a big part in Joe Flacco's playoff success.

In injury-related news, cornerback Lardarius Webb, who tore his ACL in Week 6 against Dallas last year, is present for the practice. Coach John Harbaugh said Webb would not be placed on the physically unable to perform list two days ago.
