Berhe (calf) was a full participant in offseason minicamp, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.
Berhe missed all of last season after undergoing surgery to remove a hardened blood clot from his calf. Prior to his injury, Berhe was competing for a starting role at safety next to Landon Collins, and he'll look to do that again for the coming year.
Cruz (calf) stated Friday that he's "100 percent" at this time, NJ.com reports. "I'm feeling great," he said. "Workouts have been going amazing. Each day, it gets better and better. I'm excited to continue to train, continue that pattern, and see where it takes me...I feel good. No injuries, no ailments, nothing hurts, no pain."
Cruz may just be attempting to reassure himself and, by the proxy, the media after a pair of injury-riddled seasons. In fact, his last NFL snap occurred in October of 2014, as he's dealt with a torn right patellar tendon and calf injury in the interim. Cruz's comments occurred a few days removed from general manager Jerry Reese relaying that the wide receiver will be "full go" by training camp, so avoiding any setbacks as the offseason program continues will be key in assessing his potential to produce once draft season arrives.
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.
Campanaro believes 2016 will be a make-or-break season for him, the Ravens' official website reports.
A seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Campanaro has done enough in the preseason to maintain a roster spot, but injuries have limited him to just eight regular-season games in two years. He may have to fight for his job in 2016, after suffering a season-ending herniated disc in October.
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.
Flacco (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.
Forsett, who is bouncing back from a broken arm that landed him on IR last season, noted recently that his recovery is progressing well, while adding that he has already resumed lifting weights.
Moreover, the report notes that Forsett plans to undergo X-rays in the next week in order to see just how far along he is in his recovery, but at this stage, he expects to be back to 100 percent before too long. Once he is, Forsett is slated to approach offseason workouts "as the leader in the race" for the team's top running back job, but he'll face some competition on that front from the likes of Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West, and possibly Trent Richardson, who is expected to join the team's backfield mix. Before suffering his injury last November, Forsett started the Ravens' first 10 games of the 2015 season, recording 641 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 151 attempts, to go along with 31 catches for 153 receiving yards in that span.
Gillmore (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.
Though Perriman (knee) has resumed running, he's not doing so at full speed yet.
While Perriman isn't back to full speed at this stage, coach John Harbaugh relayed Tuesday that the Ravens have been getting very good medical reports on the wideout, which offers continued encouragement that the 2015 first-rounder can rebound in 2016 to the point that he can become a key cog in the team's offense. Still, until Perriman can re-prove his health, he'll remain a speculative fantasy option, a description that also applies to veteran Steve Smith, who is coming off an Achilles tear, as well as free agent addition Mike Wallace, whose production tapered off in a disappointing 2015 campaign with the Vikings.
Pitta, who missed all of the 2015 season while recovering from a fractured and dislocated hip, is reportedly eyeing a return to the field this coming season.
Pitta, who turns 31 in June, hasn't confirmed the report, but more should be known with regard to his situation once the Ravens' offseason program opens next week. If Pitta does indeed re-enter the mix, he'd join a fairly crowded Baltimore tight end corps that also includes newcomer Benjamin Watson, as well as Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams and perhaps converted wideout Darren Waller. In his last full season with the Ravens, Pitta caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven TDs in 2012.
Though 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.
Ravens 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.
