Six players sat out of practice at the Ravens' mandatory minicamp this past week, but none of them were starters. Originally reported by ESPN's NFL Nation, this marked the first time in John Harbaugh's six years coaching Baltimore that all of his projected starters were healthy for the team minicamp.
The better news? Come July 24, the Ravens could be at 100 percent for training camp.
"I’d say it looks really good for almost all those guys,” Harbaugh said of the chances the injured players get healthy in time for training camp.
Here's the list of Ravens who missed practice this week:
- WR Kamar Aiken - Achilles
- DT Terrence Cody - hip
- WR Jace Davis - ankle
- OT Parker Graham - undisclosed
- DE Kapron Lewis-Moore - hamstring
- OL Jah Reid - calf

While Cody continues to recover from offseason hip surgery and has yet to see the field, Davis' and Lewis-Moore's injuries occurred during minicamp. Reid and Aiken were held out due to calf and Achilles strains, respectively, and an undisclosed issue discovered during a physical kept Graham, an undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma State, from practicing.
Harbaugh said he has been "very pleased" with offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele, who was sidelined for more than half of last season by a back injury in November, and that there have been no setbacks in his recovery from surgery.
"I think Kelechi, as good as he looked in shorts, he’s going to look even better in pads,” said Harbaugh.
