RSR was not represented in Spartanburg today but we thought to serve up some observations via Twitter, courtesy of a few guys regularly on the beat. But first, let’s jump in the mix with a couple of entertaining tweets from the Ravens featuring Marcus Peters.

Peters is an intelligent player who is highly respected by his teammates and coaching staff. He’s also a fierce competitor and that was apparent throughout these joint sessions with the Panthers. And oftentimes that level of competitiveness can get under the skin of opponents.

The Ravens were very thin today at wide receiver. The MIA’s from the positional group included Marquise Brown, Devin Duvernay, Rashod Bateman, Miles Boykin, Deon Cain and Sammy Watkins.

Across the offensive line Ronnie Stanley is still limited but at least he’s now out there on the field rounding into shape.

Ben Cleveland was out again and Alejandro Villanueva got the day off – probably an off day he didn’t deserve. He’s been a repeat target of offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris’ wrath. He has a ways to go to play to the level of his pay grade.

Usually the Ravens outstanding multimedia staff does a great job of providing highlights from each day’s practice. Today, this was the best they could do.

Given the lengthy list of players calling out today, as one might imagine, the offense was rather offensive…

Mark Andrews has had a very productive camp and works extremely hard each day. Today was no exception although the elements may have contributed to his severe cramping during this morning’s session. Andrews has Type 1 diabetes. Heat and humidity can contribute to the adverse effects.

Lamar Jackson got in two solid days of work running the Ravens offense albeit with better results against the Panthers on Day 1 of the two-day scrimmaging. It would be a shocker to see him take the field in Charlotte, particularly behind the offensive line that the Ravens will roll out to start Saturday night’s game.

If you are looking for good news after today’s team performance, Jeff Zrebiec summed it up perfectly and succinctly…
