07/07/17TECrockett GillmoreHamstringQUESTIONABLEGillmore (shoulder/hamstring) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Gillmore spent the early part of the offseason recovering from multiple shoulder surgeries and then missed June minicamp due to a hamstring issue, according to Callie Caplan of The Baltimore Sun. He still saw his job prospects improve during that stretch, as Dennis Pita (hip) was injured and released and Darren Waller was suspended indefinitely. With 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams (knee) still rehabbing from major surgery and 36-year-old Ben Watson returning from a torn Achilles' tendon, Gillmore and Nick Boyle both have a shot at the starting job in what eventually figures to be a three- or four-way competition. Gillmore previously held that role back in 2015 when he started all 10 games he played and caught 33 of 47 targets for 412 yards (8.8 per target) and four touchdowns. Injuries have since derailed his career, and it's quite possible he'll be a part of a timeshare even if he's technically the starter.

07/01/17TEDarren WallerSuspensionSUSPENDWaller has been suspended for at least one year for a second violation of the league's substance-abuse policy, Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com reports.

Waller was suspended for the first four games of last season for his initial violation, and now he faces a year out of the league for his latest. The 24-year-old will be allowed to participate in preseason practices and games, but his punishment will begin once the regular season does. A sixth-round pick in 2015, Waller caught 10 passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns last season. His absence -- which follows Dennis Pitta's most recent hip injury and subsequent release -- figures to allow Nick Boyle to see more action behind Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams at tight end in the buildup to this season.

06/07/17TEDennis PittaHipQUESTIONABLEPitta (hip) was released with an injury waiver by the Ravens on Wednesday, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports.

Pitta's tenure with the Ravens ends after the tight end dislocated his hip last week at OTAs. It's the third hip injury in the past four years for Pitta, putting the future of his career into question at this point. The 31-year-old was coming off his best season with the Ravens, as he recorded a franchise-best and NFL-leading 86 receptions for tight ends. Pitta was a fourth-round selection by the Ravens in 2010 and totaled 224 receptions for 2,098 yards and 13 touchdowns over his six-year stint with the team. Not to mention, he was an integral part of the Ravens' Super Bowl Championship run back in 2013, catching a touchdown in the contest. The Ravens are now left with veteran Ben Watson at tight end, who himself is recovering from an Achilles injury, which could bring Crockett Gilmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams (knee) more into the fold this season.

05/29/17DBSheldon PriceBicepsQUESTIONABLEPrice (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.

05/25/17LBC.J. MosleyShoulderQUESTIONABLEMosley (shoulder) is expected to be ready for training camp according to head coach John Harbaugh, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Mosley did not participate in OTAs and will be sidelined for the Ravens' minicamp as he continues to rehab from offseason shoulder surgery. Look for more updates on the veteran's status once training camp rolls around.

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

01/25/17DBKyle ArringtonConcussionQUESTIONABLEArrington (concussion) was released Monday by the Ravens, Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com reports.

The Ravens made a handful of changes to their secondary on Monday, releasing Arrington in order to sign Brandon Boykin and Al-Hajj Shabazz. All this comes in the wake of Tavon Young's ACL tear, which will sideline the nickel back for the entire 2017 season. Arrington's release seemed inevitable, as the team freed up $2.1 million with his departure. After missing all of last season due to concussions, Arrington will now look to compete for a reserve spot elsewhere if he can remain on the field.

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.

01/25/17DBKendrick 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.

01/25/17DBJumal 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.

01/25/17RBLorenzo 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.

01/25/17TEMaxx WilliamsKneeQUESTIONABLEWilliams' (knee) status for the start of training camp is currently uncertain, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Williams was originally expected to be ready for the early portions of training camp, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that may not be the case after all. Upon his eventual return to full health, Williams will be competing against Ben Watson (Achilles') and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) for snaps at tight end.

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.
