  • Baltimore Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/29/16TEDennis PittaFingerPROBABLEPitta (finger) will return from his injury by Week 1, according to coach John Harbaugh.

    Pitta has been out since the beginning of this month due to a finger injury suffered during a practice scuffle, but will finally return to the fold soon. That comes as good news ahead of the regular season, as the Ravens have been decimated at tight end to this point. Projected starter Ben Watson (Achilles) will miss the entire season after being injured over the weekend, and although Maxx Williams (undisclosed) should return soon, Crockett Gillmore embodies the new expected starter. While Pitta still has to prove he can remain healthy once he returns, his veteran presence should at least boost Baltimore's options behind Gillmore.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/28/16RBKenneth DixonKneeOUTDixon has an MCL tear and is expected to be sidelined for four weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

    Dixon was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason game after taking a hard goal-line hit during the second quarter. It was originally expected to be just a minor issue, but after an MRI revealed a torn MCL, he'll sit out for around four weeks. With Dixon on the sidelines, both Terrance West and Javorious Allen could have a chance to earn a bigger role behind expected starter Justin Forsett.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/25/16LBElvis DumervilFootPROBABLEDumervil (foot/ankle) is not expected to play in Saturday's matchup with the Lions, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Dumervil began camp on the physically unable to perform list due to offseason ankle surgery and he returned to practice earlier this week. Despite being okayed for practice, the team doesn't want to rush him back and he may not see the field before the regular season opener. If he's sidelined Saturday, look for Albert McClellan to see some time with the starting defense.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/25/16LBZa'Darius SmithAnklePROBABLESmith missed Thursday's practice with an ankle injury and will not play in the Ravens' third preseason game Saturday against the Lions, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    This is the first practice Smith has missed all preseason. However, even though he won't play on Saturday, the injury is not considered serious and Smith should be full-go by Week 1.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/24/16WRKaelin ClayFootDOUBTFULClay (foot) was revealed to have suffered a broken foot, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Clay suffered a foot injury during practice on Saturday, but the nature of which was previously undisclosed. However, he was considered lost for the season from the start which is why he was released with an injury designation on Monday.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/22/16DBMatt ElamKneeOUTElam fell on his knee during Saturday's preseason win over the Colts, and he'll need surgery to clean out the issue as a result.

    Elam's injury isn't season-ending according to coach John Harbaugh, but it should keep the Ravens' safety out for an extended period of time. His absence won't have too much of an impact in terms of the team's secondary, with Eric Weddle and Lardarius Webb positioned as the starting safeties. An update regarding Elam's return timetable should become available when more information is released following his surgery.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/22/16WRBreshad PerrimanKneeQUESTIONABLEPerriman (knee) has been cleared to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Saints, The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Perriman was already expected to play in a game for the first time since college, pending approval from the Ravens' medical staff. Although he received that approval Tuesday, the 22-year-old wideout does still need final clearance from head coach John Harbaugh, who suggested Monday that it won't be an issue.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/18/16WRSteve SmithAchillesQUESTIONABLESmith (Achilles) will not play in the Ravens' third preseason game Saturday against the Lions, The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Smith, who had torn his Achilles' tendon last November, was activated from the team's PUP list just last week. Thus, his participation in Saturday's preseason tilt was always considered doubtful. His Week 1 status remains questionable.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/16/16DBKendrick LewisUndisclosedPROBABLELewis missed Monday's practice with an undisclosed injury, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

    Regardless of his health, Lewis is expected to come off the bench behind Eric Weddle and Lardarius Webb. It's even possible Lewis could have to earn his roster spot, though the Ravens usually keep at least five safeties.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/12/16DBTavon YoungKneeQUESTIONABLEYoung left Thursday's matchup with the Pangers to have his knee examined in the locker room, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Young projected as the third right cornerback on on the Ravens' depth chart heading into the preseason opener. He was also likely going to get some looks at returning kicks. It is unclear how serious of an issue this is, so his status going forward is not known.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    08/08/16DBJimmy SmithAnklePROBABLESmith had three tackles (two solo) in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.

    Smith enjoyed a healthy training camp and preseason, despite having surgery in late April to remove screws from his surgically repaired right foot. He's locked in as the team's top cornerback, with Shareece Wright opening the season as the other starter. Though he arguably had the best statistical year of his career in 2015, Smith and the rest of the Baltimore secondary struggled to slow opponents.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/08/16TEMaxx WilliamsUndisclosedPROBABLEWilliams (undisclosed) will return shortly after the Ravens' final preseason game, according to coach John Harbaugh.

    Williams has missed Baltimore's past two preseason tilts due to an undisclosed injury, and although he'll seemingly return soon, Harbaugh was somewhat vague as to whether he'll be ready for Week 1. After Ben Watson's season-ending Achilles injury, Crockett Gillmore leads the Ravens' healthy options at tight end right now, so getting Williams and Dennis Pitta (finger) back soon would be a needed relief for the team.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/03/16WRDobson CollinsUndisclosedOUTAmong the players the Eagles released Friday include: cornerback Geoff Pope, defensive end Pannell Egboh, defensive tackle Boo Robinson, cornerback David Pender, wide receiver Dobson Collins, tight end Nate Lawrie, safety Anthony Scirrotto and running back Martell Mallett. (Updated 09/03/2010)
    08/01/16DBWill DavisUndisclosedPROBABLEDavis (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Coming off a torn ACL suffered last October, Davis was somewhat-surprisingly not placed on the Ravens' PUP list to begin training camp. Assuming he hasn't re-aggravated the injury, when healthy, Davis should be set to compete for the nickelback role he quickly earned in the Ravens' secondary after being acquired from the Dolphins last September.

    (Updated 08/01/2016)
    07/29/16TENick 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)
    07/29/16RBKyle JuszczykUndisclosedOUTJuszczyk finished the 2015 season with 41 catches for 321 yards and four touchdowns, adding three yards on two carries.

    Juszczyk is one of the NFL's better fullbacks, especially from a receiving standpoint. However, he rarely gets carries to complement the catches, leaving him as an afterthought even in deeper formats. His rookie contract runs through 2016.

    (Updated 01/26/2016)
    07/29/16WRDarren WallerSuspensionSUSPENDWaller (suspension) was forced to exit Saturday's win over the Colts to be tested for a concussion.

    Waller was able to pass the concussion tests and he won't be forced to miss any practice time, though he was unable to return on Saturday. He finished the game without a single target.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    07/25/16QBJoe FlaccoKneePROBABLEFlacco (knee) completed 11 of 16 passes for 94 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.

    Suiting up for the first time since he tore his ACL in November, the 31-year-old Flacco produced three points on two first-quarter drives, the second of which ended with an unsuccessful fourth-down attempt. He likely would have played deeper into the game, if not for the fact he piled up 16 pass attempts (and a sack) on just two series. Flacco did miss a couple of throws, but he didn't appear to be impacted by his surgically-repaired left knee, which jibes with reports from training camp. Flacco has been a full participant since the start of camp, with no setbacks reported at any point. On a less optimistic note, starting tight end Ben Watson is out for the season after suffering a torn Achilles early in Saturday's game. The Ravens do have strong depth at the position, but Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger) are also injured. Furthermore, wideouts Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) remain uncertain for the start of the season, despite returning to practice this past week.

    Cleveland Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16WRRicardo LouisHamstringPROBABLELouis (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    Louis suffered a hamstring injury over two weeks ago but now returns to the field just a week before the regular season gets underway. The Eagles have not commented on if the wideout will play in Thursday's preseason finale or not, but look for updates to come as the week goes on. Louis is competing with a plethora of receivers, including Taylor Gabriel, Marlon Moore, and Andrew Hawkins, for a spot on the 53-man roster.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/26/16RBRaheem MostertHamstringQUESTIONABLEMostert (hamstring) is unlikely to play Friday against Tampa Bay, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The speedster out of Purdue has been slowed by a hamstring injury of late and will not take the field for Friday's contest in all likelihood. His absence will be primarily felt on special teams Friday, but reserves such as Glenn Winston, Rajion Neal, and Jahwan Edwards could all see some carries in the second half as well with Mostert sitting.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/24/16DBTramon WilliamsToePROBABLEWilliams left Wednesday's practice early with a toe injury, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    In his last nine seasons, the durable Williams has only missed two games. It's unusual to see a player of his toughness have to leave the playing field, but knowing his track record it would be a bit of a shock if he was to miss any regular season action. However, foot and toe injuries can often linger, so it is important to see how Williams feels throughout the remainder of the week.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/17/16DBK'Waun WilliamsSuspensionSUSPENDThe Bears claimed Williams of waivers after he was released by the Browns, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    With the Bears struggling with depth ar cornerback, they added a player who has been a starting nickel back, appearing in 26 games over the last two seasons. During that time, he recorded 60 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defended and three forced fumbles. He's in the last year of his contract, and will be a restricted free agent after this season. For now, he'll provide depth, but it's conceivable that he can compete for a regular role with the defense.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/14/16DBJoe HadenAnklePROBABLEHaden (ankle) registered one tackle during his preseason debut Friday against the Buccaneers.

    The Browns welcomed a healthy Haden back to a defense that was in dire need of play-makers, but his return failed to make an impact, as the Buccaneers put up 30 points Friday -- 27 of which came in the first half. He appeared in just five games in 2015 but should continue to be one of the league's best defensive backs if his health doesn't betray him.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/10/16WRSeth DevalveHamstringPROBABLEDeValve has been placed on the active/PUP list.

    The rookie tight end will begin his first training camp on the sidelines as he nurses a hamstring injury. The timetable for the injury is still unknown.

    (Updated 07/26/2016)
    07/31/16DBTrey CaldwellHamstringQUESTIONABLECaldwell suffered a hamstring injury during the onset of training camp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    It's currently unclear whether the hamstring was merely tweaked or if Caldwell has suffered something worse. Either way, there has been no timeline provided for his return. When healthy, the Browns' fifth-round pick will compete for a role out of the slot.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/29/16LBArmonty BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant (suspension) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug charges on Wednesday and could have his four-game suspension prolonged, Scott Petra of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant was indicted in February on felony drug charges and originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his stance on Wednesday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges. As a result, the outside linebacker will receive 68 days probation which will expire on Oct. 3, the same day he is schedule to return from his original four-game suspension. However, now that Bryant has changed his plea, his case will yet again be reviewed under the league's policies, which could potentially lead to a lengthier suspension. Bryant recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games in 2015.

    (Updated 07/27/2016)
    07/29/16WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDGordon (suspension) caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

    According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman (hamstring) technically got the start, with Gordon then replacing the rookie for the second offensive snap. All three wideouts, along with Andrew Hawkins, ended up getting plenty of first-team work, but it was Gordon who clearly left the best impression. The 25-year-old snuck behind Brent Grimes on a double move to pick up 44 yards on the opening drive, then later outleapt Grimes for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. Gordon's lack of involvement in the time between might normally seem a bit concerning, but the Cleveland offense simply couldn't get anything going, with Robert Griffin ultimately taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. Whatever issues the Browns offense might still need to work out, Gordon's first on-field appearance since 2014 left little doubt that his elite athleticism is in tact. He should emerge as Griffin's favorite target upon completion of his four-game suspension, though it is possible the Browns quarterback will develop chemistry with Coleman, Pryor and TE Gary Barnidge in the meantime.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    07/28/16DLDesmond BryantChestOUTBryant (chest) has been placed on the injured reserve list and will sit out the entire season, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    Entering his eighth NFL season and fourth with the Browns, Bryant was a lock to start at defensive end after a 2015 campaign which saw him record a career-high and team-leading six sacks. The torn pectoral muscle he suffered earlier this month was originally thought to keep him out 4-to-6 months, making November the soonest possible return date. Rather than push his recovery in the hopes of a return the team decided it best to shut him down for the season. Carl Nassib appears first in line to replace Bryant, but John Hughes and Dylan Wynn could see some extra snaps as well.
