    06/15/16RBDanny WoodheadAnkle Woodhead suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday's minicamp, per ESPN.com reports.

    During team drills, Woodhead appeared to get tangled up with an offensive lineman and fall to the ground with a left ankle injury. Fortunately, Woodhead was subsequently observed walking off the field on his own strength. The injury isn't expected to be serious, but he should be considered questionable for San Diego's final day of minicamp. Woodhead's status for training camp doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy, though.

    05/17/16RBMelvin GordonKneePROBABLEGordon (knee) participated in team drills during minicamp, but isn't expected back at full strength until training camp, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Recovering from January knee surgery, Gordon was observed taking handoffs and catching passes during San Diego's first day of minicamp. This increased level of activity suggests the running back's recovery is progressing well, and barring any setbacks, he should indeed be ready to go for training camp.

    04/27/16DBBrandon FlowersKneePROBABLEFlowers (knee) is healthy after ending the season on IR, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Flowers failed to record a single interception last season, the first time he hasn't recorded at least one takeaway in his six-year career. Couple that with the fact that he registered just 33 tackles (29 solo), and it's fair to say Flowers is coming off his worst season as a pro. However, following an offseason in which the 30-year-old corner reportedly trimmed 10-12 pounds off his frame and appears completely healthy following a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season, Flowers looks to be on the upswing heading into the new year. Even with Casey Hayward joining the secondary via free agency, Flowers is still expected to start opposite Jason Verrett and could be a good candidate to rebound should he stay healthy.

    04/27/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

    04/08/16DBJason VerrettHamstring Verrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

    01/04/16WRSteve JohnsonGroin After missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

    Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

    Baltimore Injuries

    06/17/16RBTrent RichardsonKnee Richardson (knee) will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and is expected to miss several weeks, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    The former third overall pick of the 2012 is hoping to resurrect his disappointing career in Baltimore but now may not be ready for the start training camp, which could hurt his chances of making the final 53-man roster. The 25-year-old is competing with Terrance West and Lorenzo Taliaferro for a spot in the Ravens' backfield.

    06/14/16WRBreshad PerrimanKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Ravens are cautiously optimistic that Perriman (knee) will be ready at some point during training camp in August, ESPN.com reports.

    Perriman was recently diagnosed with a partial ACL tear, which led to fear that he might start his career with a second straight missed season. Fortunately for the Ravens, the tear wasn't severe enough to require reconstructive surgery, so Perriman instead received a stem-cell injection to help the ligament heal. Although the team is optimistic, head coach John Harbaugh admitted that Perriman still faces a very uncertain recovery timetable. The 2015 first-round selection missed his entire rookie season with a PCL injury in the other knee, and he'll presumably have added risk for suffering a full ACL tear whenever he does make it back onto the practice field. Steve Smith (knee) is also expected to miss the beginning of camp -- at the very least -- leaving Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace as the likely first-team wideouts when the team takes the field in late July.

    05/18/16QBJoe FlaccoKneeQUESTIONABLEFlacco (knee) suggested he is more focused on his arm strength than his surgically-repaired left knee, ESPN reports.

    Flacco seems to be making a quick recovery from Dec. 8 surgery to repair a torn ACL, as he's widely expected to be ready July 27 for the start of training camp, despite being a spectator for on-field activities throughout the offseason program. Though already able to sprint and make cuts, he's thrown far fewer passes than he typically would have at this point in the year, which could be cause to limit his reps during training camp. Flacco's arm strength has never been questioned and should quickly come back to him, but he did admit that there's some chance he'll feel hesitant when he has to face a live pass rush for the first time. While he's clearly on track for Week 1, his progress will be worth monitoring throughout camp and the preseason.

    05/18/16TECrockett GillmoreBackQUESTIONABLEGillmore (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.

    (Updated 06/02/2016)
    05/18/16TEDennis PittaHipQUESTIONABLEPitta (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.

    05/18/16WRSteve SmithAchillesQUESTIONABLESmith (Achilles) will not play in the preseason, ESPN.com reports. "I've been very comfortable throughout my career not playing in the preseason," Smith said Wednesday. "So, I don't have a problem with that. [it's] just four games that don't count and the liability of injury. At the senior-citizen age that I am, I think staying out would be good."

    Although Smith isn't worried about missing the preseason, he did say just a few days ago that he'll need to get some work in at training camp if he's going to be ready by Week 1. Recovering from a torn Achilles suffered Nov. 1, the 37-year-old wideout hasn't taken part in any offseason workouts and doesn't seem to have much chance of being ready for the start of training camp. He still hopes to be available at the start of the season, and his presence (or lack thereof) may be even more important than expected, as Breshad Perriman (knee) now faces a potentially-lengthy rehab process of his own. Of course, there's no guarantee Smith will be productive if he's available, given his age and the serious nature of his injury.

    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 DavisKneePROBABLEDavis (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.

    (Updated 06/02/2016)
    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.
