Dumervil (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.
There was never much concern following Dumervil's procedure on his foot/ankle, as the team fully expected the linebacker to return during training camp. Barring a setback, there should be little worry about Dumervil being out of the lineup in Week 1.
Dumervil was absent from minicamp and revealed to have undergone "preventative procedure" earlier in the offseason, ESPN.com reports.
Dumervil missed every single voluntary workout this offseason, but nothing was made of it since he's been doing the same thing for years. Now absent from Baltimore's mandatory minicamp, head coach John Harbaugh revealed Dumervil underwent a "preventative procedure" earlier in the offseason. Dumervil will miss the remainder of minicamp, but Harbaugh declared the Ravens' single-season sack leader will be ready for training camp.
Elvis Dumervil finished the 2015 season with 48 tackles (29 solo), six sacks, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 16 games.
Dumervil recorded fewer than 9.5 sacks for the first time since 2008, but he still did a nice job of putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, even if it didn't show up on the stat sheet. He also had to deal with extra attention, as the Baltimore Ravens ' only other outside pass-rushing threat (Terrell Suggs) was lost for the season after Week 1. With two years remaining on a team-friendly contract, Dumervil should be back in Baltimore for 2016.
