BALTIMORE -- Billy Cundiff has more on his mind these days than the 32-yard field goal he missed last season in the waning seconds of the AFC title game.
Cundiff arrived at training camp unwilling to dwell on the past.
"It's all about looking forward," he said.
Watching from the sideline, Cundiff was stunned and disappointed.
"I found out before this game that I wasn't going to get any reps, which shocked me," he said. "I felt like I had a really good week of practice."
Coach John Harbaugh insisted the move was made simply to give Tucker the chance to play from start to finish.
"Billy has had a great, great camp. He's done really well," Harbaugh said. "I think we know Billy. ... Billy has proven. (Tucker) has not proven. This is something that (Tucker) needed. We needed to see if he could handle a whole game from beginning to end and have that pressure on him, and obviously he handled it very well."
Cundiff has been solid in practice and has made both his field goal tries during the preseason. He feels no need to defend his entire body of work.
"It'll just play itself out," he said.
Harbaugh was noncommittal.
"We have to make some decisions here again next week," he said. "So, we'll just have to see how that goes."
