The Ravens executed their 90-minute session quietly and with efficiency, walking through red zone plays at three-quarters speed without serious blocking before installing some of their rushing offense at the same tempo.

Blaine Gabbert will start at quarterback in the preseason opener, which means Chad Henne will not, and as expected, there was neither jubilation nor dejection from either player. "My mindset’s not going to change," Gabbert said Thursday shortly after Head Coach Gus Bradley told reporters Gabbert will start against the Miami Dolphins in the 2013 preseason opener at EverBank Field Friday at 7:30 p.m.
