Marshal Yanda Returns To Practice

Posted Aug 12, 2013

Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda is practicing for the first time this summer. Bernard Pierce also returned.


The Ravens got a huge addition to their offensive line Monday.

Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda is back on the field.

Yanda only participated in individual drills, and sat out the 11-on-11 portion of practice.

“It felt good getting a little individual work. It’s good,” Yanda said. “It was nice to just get back out there and get back at it.”

It’s Yanda’s first practice of training camp and the offseason as a whole. Thus, it’s the first time that Baltimore’s projected starting offensive line can practice together.

Yanda has been recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, which he said he underwent five days after Super Bowl XLVII. Yanda played through the injury last season and was still one of the best offensive linemen in the league.

Third-year lineman Jah Reid had been filling in for Yanda while he was out. The team was certainly uplifted when they saw No. 73 back in uniform.

When Yanda and the rest of the offensive linemen joined the running backs for drills, running back Ray Rice simply let out a “Woah!” Yanda saluted him and went to work.

“Marshal is a great leader for us, just by example,” center Gino Gradkowski said. “He doesn’t say much, he’s a quiet guy. But when he has to, he will. He’s a tough guy, a gritty guy and definitely a good leader for us up front.”

Entering his seventh season, Yanda has missed only two starts the past three years. His return to practice shows he’s in line to be ready for the regular-season opener on Sept. 5 in Denver.

It’s unknown whether Yanda will make an appearance in preseason games. Head Coach John Harbaugh has said the team is not going to rush Yanda back.

“We’ll see what happens,” Yanda said.

Running back Bernard Pierce also returned to practice after being sidelined for a few days with a knee injury sustained in the Ravens’ preseason opener in Tampa Bay.

Tight end Dallas Clark, who is expected to officially sign with the Ravens Monday pending his physical, has not reached the practice field yet. Receiver Deonte Thompson (foot) and tight end Ed Dickson (hamstring) still are not practicing.
