Ravens wide receiver Devin DuVernay suffered a bruised thigh after colliding with safety Chuck Clark during an 11-on-11 throw down the sideline during Saturday night’s open practice at M&T Bank Stadium.
DuVernay and Clarke didn’t seem to see each other as they tracked down the ball, with DuVernay running down the right sideline and Clarke coming down from his deep zone.
DuVernay limped off the field before athletic trainers attended to him on the sideline. After stretching, he remained on the field, but did not return to classes.
Coach John Harbaugh said DuVernay could have returned but was held out as a precaution.
DuVernay, who is slated to open the season as the Ravens’ No. 2 wide receiver, has had a strong start to training camp. The Ravens have Sunday off before returning to practice on Monday.
Tight end Nick Boyle and defensive end Marcus Williams returned to practice Saturday after missing Friday’s session.
Boyle sat out about 30 minutes of Thursday’s session, spending time talking with trainers and stretching before eventually returning to run a few plays with the offense. Williams likely received veterans day off on Friday.
Ben Cleveland, who is in contention for the second-year left guard spot, missed his fourth straight practice of training camp Saturday after failing a conditioning test.
Harbaugh said Cleveland, a third-round pick in 2021, has not been limited by injuries in his attempts to test his conditioning.
“I know he can do it. He just has to go out there and do it,” Harbaugh said.
Running backs J. Q. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, left tackle Ronnie Stanley, outside linebacker Tyus Bowser, cornerback Marcus Peters and safety Ar’Darius Washington remain on the physically unavailable list and did not practice.
Rookie tight end Charlie Kolar, who is emerging carrying out a sports operation to remove a herniaand rookie outside linebacker David Ojaba, who is emerging not yet signed and held out of campalso did not participate.

Kicker Justin Tucker kicked a 60-yard field goal to end the special teams drills segment.
Jackson deep kicks Bateman
Quarterback Lamar Jackson connected with sophomore receiver Rashad Bateman for a nearly 50-yard pass during an 11-on-11 drill.
Jackson, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, has started camp well.
“He’s throwing it better than I’ve ever seen him throw it.” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said after Friday’s practice.
Attendance of fans
The Ravens announced Saturday night’s open practice attendance was 26,417. The team said Friday that all 40,000 passes have been claimed.
