    05/24/16TETyler EifertAnkleQUESTIONABLEEifert, who will undergo ankle surgery Wednesday, could potentially miss the first couple games of the upcoming NFL season, ESPN.com reports.

    Such a scenario remains speculative at this stage, given initial estimates relayed by the Cincinnati Enquirer that "a three-month recovery is anticipated, which puts Eifert's return to the field sometime in August." On the plus side, Eifert's upcoming surgery has been referred to as a "minimal procedure," so it's a little too early to count out the tight end for the Bengals' regular season opener on Sept. 11 against the Jets.

    04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDBurfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

    As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.

    04/27/16DBDarqueze DennardShoulderQUESTIONABLEDennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.

    04/27/16DLBrandon ThompsonKneeQUESTIONABLEAll the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).

    05/18/16QBJoe 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.

    05/18/16TECrockett 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)
    05/18/16WRBreshad PerrimanKneeQUESTIONABLEPerriman (knee) returned to full speed during the Ravens' OTAs this week.

    Perriman lost his rookie season due to a reoccurring PCL injury last year, but has now gotten to the point where he no longer thinks about his knee while running. At this week's OTAs, Perriman reportedly showed great burst and deep speed. The 2015 first-rounder also practiced with the Ravens' first-team offense on Thursday, and should compete with Steve Smith (Achilles), Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken for snaps during training camp.

    (Updated 05/27/2016)
    05/18/16TEDennis PittaHipQUESTIONABLEPitta (hip) had a strong showing at OTAs on Thursday, Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun reports. "To be honest, I feel really good physically out there. I haven't played football for awhile, so there are things that I'm getting back used to...I feel like I'm running like I want to, and used to, so that's very encouraging," said Pitta.

    Pitta's return to practice after missing all of last season due to a serious hip injury is a step in the right direction for the veteran tight end, but OTAs are nowhere near as physical as what he'll be up against when the Ravens begin training camp in July. As such, Pitta's progress should likely be taken with a grain of salt at this point because until he's able to make it through full contact practices, it will be difficult to determine how his hip will hold up. If Pitta is able to return to form this season, he'll be another weapon at the tight end position for Joe Flacco, who already has the likes of Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore, and Maxx Williams at his disposal.

    05/18/16WRSteve 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.

    04/27/16TENick 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.

    (Updated 02/19/2016)
    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.

    (Updated 10/13/2015)
    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)
    04/27/16LBTerrell 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.
