Urban (biceps) has been cleared to return to practice. Urban landed on the Ravens' injured reserve/designated to return list after tearing his biceps during training camp, which followed a torn ACL that caused him to miss all of his rookie campaign last year. Now healthy after being sidelined for half of this season, Urban has been given the green light to return to practice this week, although it's unclear if he'll be ready to play already this Sunday against the Jaguars. Whenever Urban is fit to play, he figures to add valuable depth to the Ravens' defensive front.
The Ravens placed defensive end Brent Urban (biceps) on short-term injured reserve Tuesday. Urban can begin practicing with the team after six weeks and can rejoin the lineup after eight weeks. To take his spot on the roster, the team signed running back Terrence Magee.
Oft-injured Ravens defensive end Brent Urban tore a biceps muscle during practice on Thursday, according to the Baltimore Sun. The injury could be season ending, a fate that is ever too familiar to Urban, who missed all of last season after a knee injury during training camp. "I appreciate the support & hate," Urban wrote this morning on his Twitter account. "I will channel my frustration into training & again come back as if I never got injured sooner than u think." The injury usually takes about 12 weeks to recover from.
After suffering a season-ending knee injury last season, Ravens defensive end Brent Urban was able to participate in the team's OTA session Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. During Wednesday's session, Urban was working with the starters when he got a little too close to quarterback Joe Flacco during a pass rushing drill. After celebrating the play, coach John Harbaugh sent Urban to the sidelines to contemplate what he had done, reports The Baltimore Sun. "It was Brent's second time, so he was sent to his room for a couple of plays," Harbaugh said. "But we do like to keep our guys away from the quarterback. He was a little too close, and then he was celebrating. That's what sent me over the edge. It's like, 'Do you not understand what we're doing here?'"
The Ravens waived safety Omar Brown, linebackers Nick DiMarco and Austin Spitler, punter Richie Leone, offensive tackle David Mims, cornerbacks Marrio Norman and Deji Olatoye, receivers LaQuan Williams and Mike Willie and running back Cierre Wood. Fullback Shaun Chapas and offensive tackle Brett Van Sloten were waived with injury designations. Baltimore also placed defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, guard Will Rackley and defensive end Brent Urban on injured reserve.
