The Ravens welcomed a surprise visitor on Saturday.

Comedian Tracy Morgan stopped by the team's facility to entertain the players and staff with his brand of comedy. When Morgan was finished with his routine, the Ravens announced that Saturday's practice had been canceled.

"We usually try to have something interesting and entertaining at the end of training camp, and we had Tracy here today," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement released by the team. "He entertained the room and had a good message for the players after his performance."

Earlier in the preseason, on July 24, Harbaugh gave his players a day off. It was the day before non-injured veterans that weren't quarterbacks had to report, so Harbaugh took those at the facility to Gettysburg for a history lesson.

A few of the Ravens players tweeted out pictures and responses about Morgan's visit.
