The Ravens announced Tuesday they have placed four players on the season-ending injury reserve list, including safety Matt Elam, per a team release. Elam tore his bicep on the first day the team put on pads in camp, so his designation to the injury list is not a surprise. In addition to Elam, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Steve Means and tight end Allen Reisner are sidelined for the season.
Ravens safety Matt Elam will miss the 2015 season after he was placed on injured reserve Monday, reports ESPN. Elam suffered a torn biceps during training camp and will need surgery.
Ravens safety Matt Elam, who was injured during practice Saturday, is reportedly out for the season with a torn biceps, per The Baltimore Sun. Elam is expected to undergo surgery and will miss four-to-six months. The former first-round pick was fighting for a starting job and apparently suffered the injury while covering a receiver during practice. "I haven't heard on the MRI yet, but I'm not real optimistic right now," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
The Ravens fear safety Matt Elam may have torn his biceps, sources told The Baltimore Sun. Elam is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity of the issue after suffering the injury during Saturday's practice. He played in 16 games last season and totaled 50 tackles without an interception.
Ravens cornerback Matt Elam is ready to bounce back after a rough 2014 season. Elam struggled in coverage and with tackling. "I think it's readily known that we have not been satisfied with the way he's played thus far," GM Ozzie Newsome said, per BaltimoreRavens.com. "And I don't think Matt has been satisfied with the way he's played thus far." Elam has dedicated himself to getting into shape this offseason. "Matt has lost about eight pounds of fat," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's in tremendous shape, down to six-percent body fat."
