Head coach Pete Carroll indicated Monday the team is "very optimistic" Chancellor (groin) can return to action this week, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Chancellor has missed the previous two contests for Seattle as he has dealt with a groin injury. While his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week, he appears to be trending toward a return Sunday. Kelcie McCray has filled in at strong safety in Chancellor's absence.
Pierre-Louis (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of UPI.com reports.
This will be the first game missed for Pierre-Louis this season. He provided a season high three tackles in last Sunday's win over the Falcons. Dewey McDonald and Jordan Tripp figure to see an increased workload providing depth at outside linebacker while Pierre-Louis is sidelined.
Rawls (leg) is scheduled to run this week with the expectation that he can play Week 9, coach Pete Carroll said at his Monday press conference.
Rawls has been out since suffering a hairline fracture in his left fibula in Week 2. The Seahawks running game could use a boost with Rawls' return. The Seahawks will bring him along slowly, though, so Week 9 might be best-case scenario.
Willson (knee - MCL) responded well to surgery and is hopeful to return this season, ESPN's Liz Mathews reports.
Willson injured his knee Sunday against the Falcons and went under the knife Tuesday in order to fix it. He's slated to miss multiple games, but it seems he could realistically return later on in the season.
Elam (knee) was brought back from the injured reserve list Tuesday.
Each team is allowed to take one player off of the IR each season, giving Elam the opportunity to begin practicing again on Tuesday. The safety now has 21 days to be activated to the 53-man roster or placed back on injured reserve, should he not be ready to play yet. He will be eligible to return for Thursday night's tilt with the Browns on Nov. 10, as he has to wait two weeks before he can participate in a game. In the meantime, Anthony Levine and Marqueston Huff will continue to serve as the only backup safeties on the depth chart.
Smith (ankle) may be available when the Ravens return from a Week 8 bye, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.
Smith missed the past two games, leaving Mike Wallace as the No. 1 receiver, with Breshad Perriman and Kamar Aiken also taking on expanded roles. Wallace took full advantage to the tune of 217 receiving yards over the past two weeks, but a struggling Joe Flacco clearly still would've benefited from Smith's presence in the short passing game. The Ravens will face the Steelers in Week 9, coming out of a badly-needed bye week.
Suggs (biceps) was spotted wearing a brace on his left arm Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Suggs is still nursing a bicep tear he suffered in Week 6 against the Giants, but now heads into the Ravens' bye week, giving him extra time to heal before Nov. 6's tilt with the Steelers. Look for practice updates to come later this week, as Za'Darius Smith is expected to see an expanded role in the veteran's absence.
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.
