The Ravens have signed suspended safety Will Hill to a one-year deal, according to the Baltimore Sun. Hill is suspended for six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy while with the Giants, his second suspension since entering the NFL.
The Ravens restructured the contract of starting cornerback Lardarius Webb, reducing his 2014 cap figure by $3 million, reports the National Football Post. Webb hasn't practiced since hurting his lower back July 25. Coach John Harbaugh said he's made significant progress and could return to practice late this week.
Broncos kicker Matt Prater, the league's second-leading scorer last year, has been notified he'll be suspended for the first four regular-season games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Prater has been in the league's alcohol program since he was charged with DUI in 2011. His attorney, Harvey Steinberg, told the Denver Post that Prater got suspended for drinking a few beers at home. "[Matt] feels terribly for his teammates," Steinberg said. "It's cost him personally, both professionally and financially."
Prater nailed 25 of 26 field-goal attempts last year, including a record-breaking 64-yarder against Tennessee. Rookie Mitch Ewald is his backup.
Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan broke the bone below his kneecap in Tuesday's practice and will be out 6-8 weeks, reports the Denver Post. The left medial tibial fracture affects alignment, stability and motion in the knee, the report said.
Broncos receiver Wes Welker, who suffered a concussion in the third preseason game, returned to practice Monday, reports NFL Network. He was wearing his helmet and doing individual drills. However, Welker has yet to be cleared for contact.
