Ravens Move Practice Facilities

Posted Jan 31, 2013

Baltimore is leaving Tulane for the New Orleans Saints indoors practice facility.


The Ravens are leaving their Super Bowl practice facilities after one day of work.

Baltimore had Wednesday’s practice at Tulane University, but had to work on the baseball field as the school is going through renovations on their football facilities. According to players, the turf was harder than their usual practice surface and not good for their health.

Thus, the Ravens have moved practice to the New Orleans Saints’ training facility, where they’ll have better field conditions that resemble more closely what they’ll see Sunday at the Superdome.

Baltimore will hold its walk-through at Tulane on Thursday, then hold practice immediately after the San Francisco 49ers leave the Saints' facility. It’s not official yet that the Ravens will work there the rest of the week, but it is likely.

“This wouldn’t have worked out if the coaches didn’t know each other,” Head Coach John Harbaugh told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

Left tackle Bryant McKinnie said Harbaugh had a conversation with the players about Tulane's turf and whether they should change practice facilities.

“He asked me how I felt and I told him, ‘It’s kind of hard. It makes your joints and stuff ache,’” McKinnie said. “It was a consensus. We wanted to make some adjustments today. We can’t [play there]. There’s no way.”

Harbaugh and Ravens players were very complimentary of Tulane University and the staff there for their hospitality.

“I think Tulane has done a remarkable job. The people of Tulane, it’s really been incredible what they’ve done there,” Harbaugh said. “The people are so nice, so professional. Everything has been great at Tulane."
