A day after turning his ankle, running back Ray Rice returned to the practice field with just two days until Baltimore's first preseason game.
Rice was unable to finish practice on Monday and left the field with a trainer. Afterward, coach John Harbaugh said it wasn't serious, which evidently was the case by Rice's appearance at practice Tuesday. It's still unknown how much he'll play Thursday against Tampa Bay. Starters typically play a quarter in the opening preseason game.
Also returning to practice Tuesday were linebacker Daryl Smith and nose tackle Terrence Cody. Both players were given the day off on Monday.
Absent from practice were safety Omar Brown and cornerback Chris Johnson. Brown left Monday's practice with an undisclosed injury and did not return. Johnson was said to have had the day off, though isn't out there Tuesday.
Receiver David Reed was not seen practicing as he continues to rehab a groin injury.
