  • Baltimore Injuries

    05/18/16QBJoe FlaccoKneeQUESTIONABLEFlacco (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.

    (Updated 04/19/2016)
    05/18/16TECrockett GillmoreBackQUESTIONABLEGillmore (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.

    (Updated 03/22/2016)
    05/18/16WRBreshad PerrimanKneeQUESTIONABLEThough 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.

    (Updated 04/05/2016)
    05/18/16TEDennis PittaHipQUESTIONABLEPitta, 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.

    (Updated 04/12/2016)
    05/18/16WRSteve SmithAchillesQUESTIONABLEThough 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.

    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 DavisKneePROBABLERavens cornerback Will Davis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    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.

    (Updated 10/13/2015)
    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.

    Miami Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16DBIfo Ekpre-OlomuKneePROBABLEEkpre-Olomu (knee) has received full medical clearance and is deemed "ready to go" for offseason activities, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.

    The once-heralded Ekpre-Olomu is a former consensus All-American cornerback for the Oregon Ducks in 2014, but is yet to play a single snap in the NFL. He had suffered an ACL injury preparing for the Rose Bowl in December of 2014, subsequently tail-spinned to the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and was exiled to the Browns for the remainder of the season, only to be waived by the team in April. Now healthy and a part of an up-and-coming Miami defensive unit, look for Ekpre-Olomu to try to earn himself a role manning the slot for rookie defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

    (Updated 05/18/2016)
    04/27/16DLDion JordanSuspensionSUSPENDMiami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.

    (Updated 03/17/2016)
    04/27/16LBChris McCainKneePROBABLEMcCain (knee) season ended Tuesday as he was placed on IR, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

    McCain and Koa Misi were both placed on IR after the game Sunday. McCain's 2015 campaign ends with two whole tackles and a sack. Safe to say he won't be missed.

    (Updated 12/23/2015)
    04/27/16DLCameron WakeAchilles PROBABLEWake (Achilles) is progressing ahead of schedule as he continues to rehab a torn Achilles he suffered last season, according to Dolphins' Executive Vice President Mike Tannenbaum, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tannenbaum said in an interview on Friday, "He's (Wake) really exceeded expectations, in terms of where he is and where our doctors thought he would be when he got hurt." Once healthy, the 34-year-old Wake will compete with new additions Mario Williams, Andre Branch, and Jason Jones for playing time, as he is expected to have a smaller role in 2016 compared to past seasons.
