05/05/17RBKenneth DixonSuspensionSUSPENDDixon (suspension) said he mistakenly took a substance without the proper NFL medical exemption, reports.

Previously expected to battle Terrance West for the Week 1 starting job, Dixon will instead prepare for an October debut in a backfield that now includes pass-catching maven Danny Woodhead, who joined the Ravens within the first few hours of free agency. It doesn't sound as though Dixon intends to fight his four-game suspension, as he instead vowed to focus on how he can help the team once his ban has concluded. This doesn't preclude the talented young runner from making an impact in his second NFL season, but the combination of four missed games and Woodhead's signing unquestionably dampers Dixon's 2017 outlook.

04/19/17WRChris MatthewsThumbQUESTIONABLEMatthews (thumb) signed his exclusive rights tender with the Ravens on Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Matthews spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered on a punt return in the Ravens' final preseason game, according to Sports Illustrated's Austin Murphy. While it isn't clear if he's back at full health as of yet, he'll look to secure a role on special teams ahead of the 2017 season opener.

02/01/17TECrockett GillmoreShoulderQUESTIONABLEGillmore (shoulder) said he wants to have an every-down role next season, reports.

Coming off an injury-marred campaign and multiple offseason shoulder surgeries, Gillmore faces a difficult path to the top of a crowded Baltimore depth chart. However, he did serve as the team's primary tight end for most of 2015, and it's possible the Ravens will ultimately release one or both of Dennis Pitta and Ben Watson (Achilles). The more likely scenario still has Gillmore serving as part of a committee in the final year of his rookie contract. Furthemore, he'll have to successfully rehab his problematic shoulders before a realistic assessment of his role can be conducted.

01/25/17DBKyle ArringtonConcussionQUESTIONABLEArrington (concussion) has been placed on the Ravens' injured reserve list.

Arrington suffered what is being considered a concussion during the Ravens' first preseason contest, but there may be more to that story considering how he has already been deemed as out for the entire year. However, he had been considered a long shot to make the final team even before going down.

01/25/17DBMaurice CanadyThighQUESTIONABLECanady suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's matchup with the Raiders and is questionable to return.

The specifics of the injury are still unknown but look for more details to emerge once the game concludes. The cornerback has yet to log a snap on defense this season as he plays primarily on special teams.

01/25/17DLWillie HenryUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEHenry (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Henry will miss the remainder of the season due to an undisclosed injury. The rookie did not log a single statistic all season, as he was buried on the Ravens' depth chart and often ruled inactive on Sundays.

01/25/17DLBronson KaufusiAnkleQUESTIONABLEKaufusi (ankle) was placed on the Ravens' injured reserve list on Tuesday, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Kaufusi, the Ravens' third-round selection in May, suffered a broken ankle on Aug. 4 and had been considered lost for the season since. He likely enter the 2017 campaign as a candidate for a significant role in DC Dean Pees' 3-4 scheme.

01/25/17DBKendrick LewisThighQUESTIONABLELewis (thigh) was released by the Ravens on Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Lewis was entering the final season of his three-year contract, but the Ravens opted to head in a new direction. Shareece Wright also was let go, giving the Ravens an additional $4.9 million in cap space between the two defensive backs. Lewis suffered a thigh injury midway through the season, landing on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. In his two seasons with the Ravens, the 28-year-old recorded 67 tackles and five pass deflections through 21 games.

01/25/17LBZach OrrNeckOUTOrr (neck) announced he is retiring from the NFL due to a congenital neck/spine condition.

Devastating news for the Ravens, as Orr was one of the best up-and-coming linebackers on the team. Before suffering the neck injury in Week 16, the linebacker had tallied 133 tackles, five pass deflections, three interceptions, and one forced fumble on the season. His sudden retirement leaves the Ravens with a massive hole in their linebacking corp that may look to fill through either the draft or free agency this offseason. In three season in the league, Orr recorded 163 tackles, one sack, six pass deflections, three interceptions, and one forced fumble through 46 games.

01/25/17DBSheldon PriceHamstringQUESTIONABLEPrice (hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

With Shareece Wright (back) a late scratch, Price got the first start of his career in Sunday's loss to Washington. If Wright were to miss any more time, Tavon Young or Jerraud Powers would be the top candidates to join the starting lineup. Price doesn't seem like a strong candidate to be Baltimore's one player to return from injured reserve.

01/25/17DBJumal RolleAchillesQUESTIONABLERolle (Achilles) signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Rolle was on contract with the Ravens last year but tore his Achilles tendon during the 2016 offseason and spent the entirety of the campaign on injured reserve. The Cardinals are fairly uncertain at cornerback behind obvious No. 1 Patrick Peterson, so if Rolle is able to recover from his Achilles injury, he could be in the mix for some playing time this coming season.

01/25/17DBJimmy SmithAnkleQUESTIONABLESmith (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Smith continues to heal from a high ankle sprain which he suffered in Week 14, ultimately shutting him down for the remainder of the season. Through 11 games, he notched 32 tackles (29 solo), four passes defensed, and zero interceptions. Expect Tavon Young, Shareece Wright, and Jerraud Powers to see a bulk of the work at cornerback during the Ravens' season finale against the Bengals.

01/25/17RBLorenzo TaliaferroHamstringQUESTIONABLETaliaferro (hamstring) could get a look in the fullback/H-back role vacated by Kyle Juszczyk, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Taliaferro seems to be buried on the depth chart at running back, leaving him with no clear path to the final roster unless injuries hit the Baltimore backfield hard during training camp. It would thus make sense to at least give the 225-pounder a look at fullback/H-Back, which along with work on special teams might give him a real shot at making the roster. A 2014 fourth-round selection, Taliaferro has flashed some promise as a power runner when given the opportunity, but lower-body injuries cut each of his three professional seasons short. While last season's hamstring injury probably won't linger into this season, it's a stretch to think Taliaferro can actually replace Kyle Juszczyk, who parlayed his versatility into a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers. Even if there's little reason to believe Taliaferro can match Juszczyk's contributions as a lead blocker or pass catcher, it is possible a poor approximation could be enough to warrant one of the final roster spots.

01/25/17TEBenjamin WatsonAchillesQUESTIONABLEWatson (Achilles) is nearing a return to full health, Jamison Hensley of reports. "I'm able to do pretty much everything to some extent. These last couple stages are very important about getting the strength back. The actual Achilles itself is intact," Watson said. "The good thing, if there is a good thing, even though I hated that it happened, I had a long time to recover and to make sure this thing is at a place where I can compete when the time is right."

Watson said he's endured the "toughest, longest and most strenuous rehab" of his career in his recovery from a ruptured Achilles he sustained in a 2016 preseason game. Fortunately, he's still expected to return in time for training camp in July. The Ravens could save $3 million by cutting him this offseason, but despite being one of the most cash-strapped teams in the league, Baltimore doesn't appear to have any intentions of parting ways with the 36-year-old tight end at this point in time.

01/25/17TEMaxx WilliamsKneeQUESTIONABLEWilliams (knee) likely will face stiff competition for reps next season, reports.

Even if the Ravens were to move on from veterans Dennis Pitta and Ben Watson (Achilles), the team would still have intriguing alternatives in the form of Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and Nick Boyle. Williams has failed to live up to his second-round status through two seasons, catching only 32 passes in 18 games. He had zero targets in four appearances last season, ultimately landing on injured reserve in October. At best, he'll enter training camp competing for snaps as part of a committee.

11/11/16WRKaelin ClayFootQUESTIONABLEClay (foot) signed a one-year contract with the Panthers, Bryan Strickland of the team's official website reports.

A 2015 sixth-round pick, Clay was released by Tampa Bay at the end of his first training camp, and then caught on with the Ravens as a return specialist for the final seven weeks of his rookie season. He was in the mix to earn the same role last summer, but the Ravens released him with an injury settlement after he suffered a broken foot during training camp. While unlikely to make an impact on offense, Clay is a candidate to replace Tedd Ginn (Saints) as Carolina's primary return man.

09/07/16DBCarrington ByndomUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEByndom (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Ravens on Wednesday, Jayson Braddock of SportsTalk 790 reports.

It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
