The biggest note was a scare late in practice when rookie running back Kenneth Dixon came up gimpy with a knee issue. He caught a pass in the flat and then collided with undrafted rookie linebacker Patrick Onwuasor along the sideline. Dixon got attention from the trainers after the play and then limped off the field into the locker room.
Harbaugh calmed any concerns with Dixon’s knee issue after practice when he said the rookie “has just a slight, slight thing with the knee,” and he could return to practice as early as Friday.
Third-year running back Lorenzo Taliaferro, however, might be sidelined for longer. After having his first two seasons ended by Lisfranc foot issues, the Ravens put him on the physically unable to perform list because Harbaugh said, “he’s not quite there yet as far as coming out and practicing.”
An update on Dixon says he's day-to-day with a MCL strain. Ironically, we had a news story just today about Justin Forsett wanting a bulk of the work but some think Dixon is a candidate to get a lot of touches as the Ravens like his skill set. Fortunately his knee issue seems to be a minor one.
