It’s May, meaning the Ravens are in no rush to push RT Jared Gaither back from a bruised foot.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh held a session with the media Tuesday, saying Gaither had a cortisone shot in his injured right foot — which the team is giving time to heal – and will get an orthodic to support his foot. Harbaugh indicated Gaither would return to practice soon.
“Jared is here, and he’s working,” Harbaugh said. “We’ll probably take our time. I talked to him this morning. I think he’s anxious to get back and practice.”
Gaither, who was switched to the right said when second-year pro Michael Oher was inserted into the starting lineup at left tackle, has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender from the Ravens. The subject of trade rumors throughout the offseason, he was extended at the first-round level by the Ravens.
Elsewhere on the injury front, S Haruki Nakamura, QB Troy Smith and WR Mark Clayton all returned to practice on Tuesday, per Mike Duffy of Baltimoreravens.com.
