Ravens WR Devin Duvernay suffers thigh bruise in practice collision; TE Nick Boyle, S Marcus Williams back
Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay suffered a thigh bruise after colliding with safety Chuck Clark on a sideline throw in an 11-for-11 period during Saturday night’s open practice at the M&T Bank Stadium.
Duvernay and Clark looked out of sight as they followed the overturned ball, with Duvernay running down the right sideline and Clark running down from his deep zone.
Duvernay limped off the field before athletic trainers attended to him on the sidelines. After stretching, he remained on the pitch, although he did not return to training.
Coach John Harbaugh said Duvernay could have returned, but he was held off for precautionary reasons.
Duvernay, who is in line to open the season as the Ravens’ No. 2 wide receiver, had a strong start to training camp. The Ravens have Sunday off before returning to practice Monday.
Tight end Nick Boyle and safety Marcus Williams returned to practice Saturday after missing Friday’s practice.
Boyle spent about 30 minutes of Thursday’s session spending time talking to coaches and stretching before finally coming back to play a few games with the offense. Williams likely received a veteran day off on Friday.
Sophomore offensive lineman Ben Cleveland, who is vying for the starting left guard position, missed his fourth straight practice of training camp on Saturday after failing his fitness test.
Harbaugh said Cleveland, a 2021 third-round pick, hasn’t been limited by injury in their conditioning test attempts.
“I know he can do it. He just has to go out there and do it,” Harbaugh said.
