Inside the Ravens with Aaron Wilson

Thursday, August 23, 2007


OWINGS MILLS -- Cornerback David Pittman lined up with the first-string defense in preparation for Saturday night's start against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field in place of injured starter Samari Rolle. If it were a regular-season game, nickel back Corey Ivy would be starting. This is essentially an audition for Pittman, a disappointment last year after being drafted in the third round.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (swollen knee) didn't practice and is questionable for the Redskins game. Also not practicing: Rolle (sprained right ankle), wide receiver Mark Clayton (sprained right ankle), tight end Daniel Wilcox (sprained left ankle), running back P.J. Daniels (hamstring) and offensive tackle Steve Edwards (knee). Plus, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden (turf toe) and linebackers Dan Cody (knee surgery) and Mike Smith (shoulder surgery) remain on the physically unable to perform list.Defensive tackle Atiyyah Ellison returned to practice after missing Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.
