Though Dixon (knee) was spotted at practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com suggests that Week 5 "is the realistic target" for the rookie running back's return to action.
For his part, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun notes that Dixon "was mostly working out on his own" Wednesday, but the running back's presence on the field, in any capacity, is nonetheless a good sign with regard to Dixon's chances of factoring into the Ravens' backfield mix sooner rather than later.
Dumervil (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Dumervil has yet to make his 2016 regular season debut as the nagging foot issue continues to have an impact. His status for Sunday's game against the Raiders isn't certain at this point, so his situation should continue to be monitored throughout the week.
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.
Charles (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.
While Teicher acknowledged that Charles could still end up playing Sunday night against the Steelers, he adds that "as cautious as they've been with (Charles) that's difficult to picture unless he gets a full week of practice." With that in mind, Charles remains a risky fantasy lineup roll, with the Chiefs not kicking off until 8:30 PM ET on Sunday and Spencer Ware looming as a candidate to see his share of work in Week 4 even if Charles does suit up.
