Aiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Aiken has been bothered by his thigh for the past few weeks, but it's yet to result in an absence or any in-game limitations. With Steve Smith (ankle) listed as doubtful, Aiken and Breshad Perriman figure to take on expanded roles alongside Mike Wallace. Though AIken was technically the starter last week, Perriman has drawn more targets in each of the last five games.
Hester (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after logging a full practice Friday.
Hester was absent due to a thigh issue prior to Friday's full session, but that late-week involvement could be enough for him to face the Jets. While his status will need to be confirmed one way or the other Sunday, Hester's contributions have been restricted to special teams work in Baltimore.
Smith (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets.
For a second straight week, Smith didn't participate in practice and will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. With no indication he has any shot to play, the Ravens will need added contributions from Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman and Kamar Aiken (thigh) against a vulnerable Jets secondary. QB Joe Flacco (shoulder) is listed as questionable, creating additional concerns in regard to the Baltimore passing game.
Boyle 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.
Gabriel (concussion) is expected to be able to return for Week 8's game against the Packers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Gabriel hasn't practiced this week due to his concussion, which will certainly see him miss Sunday's game against the Chargers. However, coach Dan Quinn anticipates Gabriel's absence to be relatively short-lived, as he should be back available next weekend. While Gabriel's progress through the league protocol will ultimately determine whether that timetable is realized, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson should split his vacated snaps in the meantime.
