Which Ravens helped, didn't help themselves against the Saints

The Fry Cook game likely didn't produce any starters,but it has given some clarity to some positional battles.

Chris Graythen

Who helped themselves

Fitzgerald Toussaint: Toussaint was the Ravens leading rusher (17 carries, 103 yards) and had some good long runs. I'm not saying he'll make the roster but he's done a good job getting a practice squad spot.

Dominique Franks: Franks was the best cornerback Thursday night, stopping the Saints in the red zone and has almost certainly won himself a spot on the 53-man roster.

Michael Campanaro: Campanaro has been impressive as a punt returner, kick returner and wide receiver. He would be doing even better if not for stupid penalties.

John Simon: Simon had a great game against. the Saints, making some tackles and having a presence in the backfield and the pass rush. If anything, Simon made a case for more playing time.

Deonte Thompson: Thompson scored his third touchdown of the preseason, an eight-yard reception from Tyrod Taylor. Thompson went from a sure-cut to a near-lock.

Tyrod Taylor: Taylor made plays with his legs and with his arms. It appears that he shall be Joe Flacco's back-up once again.

Derek Cox: Cox showed the talent that he had in Jacksonville Thursday night, stopping the Saints for no gain on first down and getting a pass deflection. He certainly made a case for a roster spot.

Keith Wenning: Wenning had a good enough night on Thursday to show why he deserves a roster spot. Or at least why he should be kept around.

Who didn't help themselves

Kamar Aiken: Aiken prematurely stopped running his route, leading to a Ravens interception and couldn't stay in bounds for a would-be touchdown. For a guy on his last shot, those are not a good things to do. However, he did lead the Ravens in receiving with four catches for 57 yards.

Philip Supernaw: Supernaw suffered an injury and his best shot for employment is probably IR at this point.

Jeremy Butler: Butler was unspectacular on Thursday and he had an offensive pass interference penalty, as well as a pass deflect off his hands that Michael Campanaro came down with.
