The first joint practice between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers went off without a hitch, as the teams took to heart the coaches' message to play it safe.

The two physical teams practiced Saturday without incident for about 2 1/2 hours, two days after the Ravens beat the 49ers 23-3 in the preseason opener.

Before practice, the 49ers placed injured wide receiver Chuck Jacobs on waivers and signed receiver Lance Lewis, who played three games for the Washington Redskins last season before joining the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.

The practice marked Anquan Boldin's return to the Ravens facility. The former Ravens receiver was traded to the 49ers last spring.

The teams are scheduled to hold joint practices again Sunday and Monday.
