Ravens QB Lamar Jackson returns to practice; DT Michael Pierce among absentees at mandatory minicamp

After skipping the Ravens’ organized team activities, quarterback Lamar Jackson was back at the team’s mandatory minicamp Tuesday. Defensive tackle Michael Pierce, however, was not.

Pierce, who was not present for the three voluntary practices open to reporters in Owings Mills, signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Ravens in March. The reason for his absence Tuesday is unclear.

Under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, the Ravens could penalize Pierce up to $15,980 for his first missed day, $31,961 for his second and $47,936 for his third. Should he miss all of this week’s minicamp, Pierce could be fined up to $95,877.

Also absent Tuesday were running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee); left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle); defensive lineman Derek Wolfe (hip); outside linebackers Tyus Bowser (Achilles tendon) and David Ojabo (Achilles tendon); cornerback Marcus Peters (knee); and safety Ar’Darius Washington (foot). None participated in the team’s practices over the past three weeks.

Cornerback Iman Marshall, who missed the 2020 and 2021 seasons with torn ACLs, returned to the field.

Jackson, who’s entering the final year of his rookie contract, reported to minicamp Monday and is expected to participate in all three practices this week. Coach John Harbaugh said last week that he expected Jackson to return for minicamp.
