Brooks (undisclosed) has only been participating in walk-throughs during 49ers' OTAs, CSN Bay Area reports.
49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil wouldn't disclose the nature of Brooks' injury, but said that he is "hoping that we can get something out of him by the end of spring." It doesn't sound like the injury is serious, and we will update his status as soon as more information is provided by the team.
GM Trent Baalke claims Dorsey is making "very good progress" in his recovery from an ACL tear, Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Regarding Dorsey's availability for Week 1, Baalke went on to say, "I'm never going to give a definitive [answer] because I don't know. He could always have a setback coming up. But right now he's making progress, he looks good, his mind's in a great place, and ready to roll."
Despite this endorsement of health, Dorsey is almost certainly slated for the PUP list to start training camp. However, he won't necessarily begin the season there. Dorsey suffered the torn ACL last season against the Seahawks on Nov. 22, and although occurring late in the season, he could certainly be "ready to roll" come opening day. Comparatively, DT Geno Atkins suffered an ACL tear in Week 9 of the 2013 season, and was good to go for Week 1 of 2014.
Draughn has signed a one-year deal to remain with the 49ers, ESPN.com reports.
Draughn, who missed the final two games of the 2015 season with a knee injury, is thus slated to remain part of the 49ers' backfield in 2016, serving as a complement/depth option behind presumed top back Carlos Hyde.
Williams' contract with the 49ers has been reworked into a one-year deal worth up to $6 million due to the uncertainty surrounding his availability for the beginning of the upcoming season, CSN Bay Area reports.
Williams initially agreed to a reported five-year, $27.5 million contract with the 49ers following a career year last season, but after he couldn't pass a team physical due to multiple offseason ankle surgeries, Williams contract was reworked into a one-year deal. A player that's had numerous procedures to his left leg during his pro career, Williams' status for the start of the 2016 is in question following his latest operations, leaving the 49ers in need of some depth up front in case he's unavailable.
Kaepernick (shoulder) returned to practice for the first time this offseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Initial reports stated that Kaepernick would be limited to individual drills during the 49ers' three-day minicamp, but he ended up participating in the team's seven-on-seven sessions as well. He wasn't going at 100-percent, but he was seen firing the ball close to 50 yards down the field. Kaepernick was also noticeably slimmer, but that was to be expected after not being able to work out during his shoulder rehab. His health, weight and adaptation to Chip Kelly's offense will all be things to monitor this offseason to determine whether Kaepernick can bounce back in 2016.
Bethea (pectoral) is back at full strength and expected to start the season at strong safety, CSN Bay Area reports.
Bethea suffered a torn pectoral muscle and missed the final eight games of the season in 2015. He didn't have a spectacular campaign (44 tackles, zero interceptions), but he has the potential to put up solid IDP numbers playing on a Chip Kelly defense that is asked to be on the field for a high number of snaps.
Campanaro (calf strain) has been deemed healthy, the Ravens' official website reports.
Campanaro has dealt with a long list of soft-tissue injuries since he was selected in the seventh round of the 2014 draft, limiting him to just eight games through his first two professional seasons. However, he's made a strong impression when healthy, showing promise as both a slot receiver and return specialist. After missing part of the offseason program due to the calf injury, Campanaro should enter training camp at 100 percent. He's acknowledged that this will be his make-or-break season, as the Ravens have a deep group at wide receiver, potentially leaving him on the roster bubble.
Dixon missed rookie minicamp and the first round of OTAs due to a strained hamstring he suffered at Louisiana Tech's pro day in March, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft at No. 134 overall, Dixon scored the second-most touchdowns (87) in FBS history while also topping 1,000 scrimmage yards in each of his four seasons. His quickness and receiving ability should make him a nice fit in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman's pass-oriented scheme, but the Ravens already have a pair of capable pass-catching backs in Justin Forsett and Javorius Allen. It thus seems Dixon will merely vie for a role as part of a possible committee, though injuries during training camp could easily change the situation. Regardless, the Ravens don't seem worried about Dixon's hamstring injury and expect him to be a full go for the start of camp in late July.
Dumervil said the preventative procedure he had during the offseason took place "somewhere in my foot area", the Baltimore Sun reports.
Dumervil didn't provide any other details, but he did make it clear that the injury affected him last season, perhaps helping to explain why he had fewer than 9.5 sacks for the first time since 2008. He did manage a three-year high of 48 tackles, taking on an every-down role in the absence of Terrell Suggs (Achilles), after mostly playing on passing downs the previous two years. The Ravens likely plan on scaling Dumervil back to his old role that focused on pass-rushing, as the team hopes Suggs will be ready by Week 1. Dumervil won't necessarily be ready for the start of training camp, but he expects that he'll have plenty of time to prepare for the season.
Flacco (knee) plans to participate in practice when the Ravens begin training camp July 28th, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.
Flacco has stated numerous times that he intends on being in action when training camp starts, reassuring fantasy owners of his progress since suffering a torn ACL last November. The quarterback is already able to sprint and make cuts, so taking the field with his teammates later this month would represent the next step in his return. At this point, it seems highly likely that Flacco will be ready to roll once Week 1 kicks off, but it should still be worthwhile to monitor his involvement and performance level throughout the preseason.
Richardson (knee) will begin training camp on the PUP list, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
This is an unsurprising move as the 25-year-old Richardson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late June, and was expected to miss several weeks as a result. The third pick in the 2012 draft is hoping to find new life in Baltimore this season, but will need to get back on the field to earn his way into the mix.
Waller has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Waller will be able to stay with the team through training camp and the preseason before serving his suspension once the season begins. In six games as a rookie last year, he recorded just two receptions for a total of 18 yards, though he did have a greater impact on special teams, where he was a gunner. He'll look to improve on his offensive numbers from last season once his suspension is complete.
Perriman (knee) will begin training camp on the PUP list, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
The 2015 first-round pick missed his entire rookie season with a PCL injury, and suffered a scare earlier in the offseason when he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his other knee. Fortunately, Perriman was able to opt for a stem-cell injection to help the ligament heal and avoid surgery. The Ravens anticipated that he would not be ready for the start of training camp, but remain optimistic he will be ready to return to the field prior to the start of the season. With the uncertainty surrounding veteran Steve Smith Sr. returning from an Achilles injury the Ravens are already thin in the receiving department, which will leave plenty of opportunity for Perriman should his recover remain on track.
Gillmore (shoulder/back) was on the field for OTAs last week and should be ready for the start of training camp, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Reports on Gillmore's health have been all over the place this offseason, as it was initially reported he might need two or three surgeries, with his back and both of his shoulders problematic. The flame was fueled when the Ravens signed Ben Watson, a capable in-line blocker who also caught a career-high 74 passes for the Saints last season. As it turns out, Gillmore only needed surgery on one of his shoulders, setting him up for a return at the beginning of camp. Though looking better than expected from a health standpoint, Gillmore is unlikely to regain the bit of fantasy utility he carved out last season, as he'll now have to compete with Watson, 2015 second-rounder Maxx Williams and (possibly) Dennis Pitta (hip) for snaps at tight end. The Ravens also added depth at running back and wide receiver, albeit with no clear top target among the bunch.
Pitta (hip) was one of the Ravens' more active offensive players during the offseason program, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Attempting to bounce back from a second dislocation of his right hip, the 30-year-old Pitta apparently looked good at OTAs and minicamp. He was once a leading target for close friend Joe Flacco, but even if Pitta proves to be much the same as he once was, the Ravens have a ton of competition for snaps at tight end, with Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams also in the mix. Pitta hasn't played in a game since Sept. 2014, and he will always be at added risk for suffering another severe hip injury, which would almost certainly spell the end of his career. He already considered retiring, but instead decided to give it one last shot after sitting out the entire 2015 season.
Smith (Achilles) will start training camp on the PUP list, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
This is an unsurprising move as it has already been announced that the veteran Smith would not be playing in the preseason. He suffered his Achilles injury on Nov. 1, and was not able to participate in any offseason workouts. His role with the team this season remains uncertain until he is able to display he has recovered from the serious injury. However, the Ravens have relatively thin depth in their receiving department, so he will have plenty of opportunity to produce if he can get healthy.
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.
Davis (knee) ran at close to full speed during last weeks OTA, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Traded from Miami to Baltimore in September in exchange for a late-round draft pick, Davis served as the Ravens' nickelback before tearing an ACL for the second time in two years. Given the shaky state of Baltimore's depth chart at cornerback, Davis could compete with the likes of Shareece Wright and Jerraud Powers for the starting job across from Jimmy Smith (foot). Davis will be 11 months removed from suffering the injury when Week 1 rolls around.
The 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.
Head coach John Harbaugh stated that Suggs (Achilles) "has a real chance to be ready to go" for training camp given the timing of his injury, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Suggs had ruptured his left Achilles during Baltimore's 2015 season-opener, which would give him just over 10 months of recovery time before the commencement of training camp. When Suggs suffered a previous Achilles tear in late-April of 2012, he amazingly returned in under six months. However, that kind of recovery from a torn Achilles was largely unprecedented and even considered an athletic marvel of sorts, in which Suggs simply proceeded to log double-digit sack numbers in back-to-back seasons thereafter. Now, nearly four years older, Suggs will have to bounce back from the same catastrophic injury yet again. Fortunately, no setbacks have been reported in Suggs' recovery and the six-time All Pro appears to be fully committed towards playing in 2016.
