    04/27/16TENick BoyleSuspensionSUSPENDBoyle has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2016 campaign due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Boyle was utilized sparsely as a rookie in 2015, hauling in 18 balls for 153 yards over the course of 11 games. However, he received his first suspension related to PEDs on Dec. 7 and subsequently missed the final four contests of the season. With Boyle out of the picture for most of next season, the Ravens rely upon Crockett Gillmore (back) and Maxx Williams to man tight end.

    04/27/16WRMichael CampanaroBackPROBABLECampanaro believes 2016 will be a make-or-break season for him, the Ravens' official website reports.

    A seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Campanaro has done enough in the preseason to maintain a roster spot, but injuries have limited him to just eight regular-season games in two years. He may have to fight for his job in 2016, after suffering a season-ending herniated disc in October.

    04/27/16DBWill DavisKneePROBABLERavens cornerback Will Davis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Acquired from the Dolphins in exchange for a late-round draft pick just a few weeks ago, Davis quickly emerged as the nickel back for a corner-needy Baltimore defense. The former third-round draft pick initially acquitted himself well, only to suffer a torn ACL Sunday against Cleveland.

    04/27/16DBMatt ElamBicepsPROBABLEThe Ravens will not pick up the fifth-year option on Elam's (biceps) rookie contract, the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.

    The 32nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Elam struggled mightily through his first two seasons, then missed all of 2015 with a torn biceps. He should be healthy for training camp but will likely just compete for backup role. The Ravens signed Eric Weddle to start at one safety spot, and they're expected to test out converted cornerback Lardarius Webb at the other.

    (Updated 05/02/2016)
    04/27/16QBJoe FlaccoKneeQUESTIONABLEFlacco (torn ACL) recently began running and throwing short passes, ESPN reports.

    Flacco also said he's been able to put weight on his left knee, even doing squats in the weight room. He hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, and while that may be a bit optimistic, the rapid progress bodes well for his Week 1 availability. With Steve Smith (Achilles), Breshad Perriman (knee) and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) also recovering from major injuries, the entire Baltimore passing game will require close monitoring in the coming months. The team did sign a pair of veteran reinforcements in the form of Mike Wallace and Ben Watson.

    (Updated 04/19/2016)
    04/27/16RBJustin ForsettArmPROBABLEForsett, who is bouncing back from a broken arm that landed him on IR last season, noted recently that his recovery is progressing well, while adding that he has already resumed lifting weights.

    Moreover, the report notes that Forsett plans to undergo X-rays in the next week in order to see just how far along he is in his recovery, but at this stage, he expects to be back to 100 percent before too long. Once he is, Forsett is slated to approach offseason workouts "as the leader in the race" for the team's top running back job, but he'll face some competition on that front from the likes of Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West, and possibly Trent Richardson, who is expected to join the team's backfield mix. Before suffering his injury last November, Forsett started the Ravens' first 10 games of the 2015 season, recording 641 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 151 attempts, to go along with 31 catches for 153 receiving yards in that span.

    04/27/16TECrockett GillmoreBackQUESTIONABLEGillmore (shoulder/back) only needs surgery on one shoulder and could be ready for OTAs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Previously expected to have multiple procedures this offseason, Gillmore apparently needs just the one surgery. Baltimore's recent signing of Ben Watson led to speculation that the team wasn't counting on having Gillmore available in 2016, but it now seems that isn't the case. Despite mostly playing well as a starter in 2015, Gillmore will likely have a part-time role during the upcoming season, as both Watson and 2015 second-round selection Maxx Williams figure to be involved in the passing game.

    (Updated 03/22/2016)
    04/27/16WRBreshad PerrimanKneeQUESTIONABLEThough Perriman (knee) has resumed running, he's not doing so at full speed yet.

    While Perriman isn't back to full speed at this stage, coach John Harbaugh relayed Tuesday that the Ravens have been getting very good medical reports on the wideout, which offers continued encouragement that the 2015 first-rounder can rebound in 2016 to the point that he can become a key cog in the team's offense. Still, until Perriman can re-prove his health, he'll remain a speculative fantasy option, a description that also applies to veteran Steve Smith, who is coming off an Achilles tear, as well as free agent addition Mike Wallace, whose production tapered off in a disappointing 2015 campaign with the Vikings.

    (Updated 04/05/2016)
    04/27/16TEDennis PittaHipQUESTIONABLEPitta, who missed all of the 2015 season while recovering from a fractured and dislocated hip, is reportedly eyeing a return to the field this coming season.

    Pitta, who turns 31 in June, hasn't confirmed the report, but more should be known with regard to his situation once the Ravens' offseason program opens next week. If Pitta does indeed re-enter the mix, he'd join a fairly crowded Baltimore tight end corps that also includes newcomer Benjamin Watson, as well as Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams and perhaps converted wideout Darren Waller. In his last full season with the Ravens, Pitta caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven TDs in 2012.

    (Updated 04/12/2016)
    04/27/16WRSteve SmithAchillesQUESTIONABLEThough Smith acknowledged that he is still in the early stages of his recovery from a torn Achilles, the wideout expressed optimism Monday that he would be ready for the start of the 2016 season, ESPN.com reports.

    Smith, who turns 37 in May, originally planned for 2015 to be his last season in the NFL, but in the wake of Achilles' surgery on Nov. 9, the veteran wideout announced in late December that he planned to return to the Ravens for the 2016 season. With that in mind, when asked if he thought he'd be ready for the start of the upcoming regular season, Smith replied, "yeah, I think I'll be fine." While such an outcome is hardly a lock, Smith's reputation as one of the toughest players in the league does give him a solid chance to overcome what he calls the toughest injury of his productive NFL career, which began in 2001.

    04/27/16LBTerrell SuggsAchilles QUESTIONABLERavens general manager Ozzie Newsome expects Suggs (torn Achilles) to return for the 2016 season, The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Suggs suffered the second torn Achilles of his career in Week 1, leaving the Baltimore defense without arguably its most important player for the entire season. He made a miraculously quick recovery from the injury back in 2012, but he didn't return to his usual form until the following season. Now 33 years old, Suggs is signed through 2018 on a contract that has team-friendly cap numbers, but with a high percentage of the money guaranteed. While it would be shocking if he opted for retirement, there's no assurance that he'll ever be a dominant player again.

    Houston Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16LBJadeveon ClowneyFootPROBABLEClowney won't require offseason foot surgery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    In Week 16, Clowney sustained a foot injury that claimed his availability in the season finale and the wild-card loss to the Chiefs. Prior to that unfortunate development, he realized some of his vast potential as a pass rusher, racking up 4.5 sacks among 40 tackles (27 solo) and a forced fumble. If he can ever avoid the injury bug, he would augment an already imposing pass-rushing duo of J.J. Watt (groin) and Whitney Mercilus.

    04/27/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEFoster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy.

    Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.

    04/27/16DBCharles JamesFootPROBABLEJames was placed on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in Sunday's win over the Titans.

    James has been playing with a foot injury the past few weeks and it finally caught up with him.

    (Updated 12/28/2015)
    04/27/16QBTom SavageShoulderPROBABLEThe Texans intend to place quarterback Tom Savage on injured reserve, which will end his 2015 season, a source told the NFL Network. Savage suffered a shoulder injury during a recent preseason game.
    04/27/16DLJ.J. WattGroinPROBABLEWatt is nearly recovered from offseason groin surgery, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports. "I am very, very close to being back to 100 percent," he said recently.

    At the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, Watt was apparently sporting five partially or full torn core muscles, yet the ailments didn't stop him from nabbing his third NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in a four-year span. In particular, he notched 17.5 sacks among 76 tackles last season, to which he added three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in a full 16-game slate.
