Dixon is thus unlikely to return to game action this week, but coach John Harbaugh said that the running back -- who hurt his knee back on Aug. 27 -- remains on track with his recovery. "The only thing I can really say - it's going to be too vague probably for everybody to want to hear, but he's working hard and he's getting closer," Harbaugh noted Wednesday. "He seems to be on schedule. I'm looking forward to getting him back."
Mosley saw all of the defensive snaps for the Ravens in Week 1, and despite missing some practice time this week due to a thigh ailment, he'll suit up for the Week 2 divisional showdown. Mosley is a top-tier IDP when healthy, and should put himself in a position to rack up tackles Sunday afternoon.
Supernaw was mostly a reserve in 2014 and had two catches for 27 yards. Trawick is a backup safety that plays on special teams coverage units. Melvin was signed off of the Dolphins' practice squad after injuries decimated the cornerbacks. Jensen was a 2013 draft pick that ended up spending the majority of 2014 on the practice squad.
Canady has good athleticism for a corner at 6-foot-1 and with 31 and 5/8-inch arms, but the Virginia pass defense was awful in 2015, which doesn't bode especially well for Canady's NFL coverage skills. Still, he's a worthwhile project in this range.
Zuttah is recovering from offseason hip surgery. He practiced on a limited basis. Zuttah played the 2014 season with a lot of pain, especially when he was in his blocking stance.
Zuttah was an integral part of the Ravens' success on the offensive line a year ago. The Ravens only gave up 19 sacks, the second-fewest in the NFL, and rushed for 126.2 yards per game, which ranked eighth in the league.
Hester won't have any kind of role on offense, but his dual responsibilities on special teams could give him some value in return-yardage leagues. While the Ravens might eventually try to draw up a few plays for Hester on offense, it would be unwise to expect anything of the sort in Week 1.
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.
A 2014 UDFA, Orr appears to have beaten out 2013 second-round selection Arthur Brown in a competition for the starting inside linebacker job alongside C.J. Mosley. The Ravens used both Mosley and Daryl Smith for nearly every defensive snap the past two seasons, but it isn't clear that Orr will assume an every-down role. If he does, a surprising degree of IDP value could be in the cards, as Smith topped 120 tackles both of the last two seasons while playing next to Mosley.
The Ravens really spread the ball around Sunday, with Joe Flacco completing passes to nine different receivers. Such seems to be the theme for Baltimore's offense this year, and even though Smith did receive six targets Sunday, it will be hard to trust any one Ravens' pass-catcher as long as opportunities are so few and far between. It will take a string of strong performances before Smith can be mentioned in the WR3 category in standard leagues.
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.
It is the second straight week Richardson will be inactive.
The Colts are currently 7-point underdogs against the Patriots Sunday.
Rolle had torn his Achilles during the team's offseason program in May, so his placement on this list means his season isn't necessarily over. Expect Rolle to be placed on short-term IR in advance of Week 1, giving him a chance to return at some point during the season, but any playing time he may see in 2016 completely depends on how fast he can recover from this typically-harsh injury.
Joe Flacco (knee) was held out for a second straight week, allowing Mallett to play the first three drives of Saturday's game. No. 3 quarterback Josh Johnson was also reasonably effective, completing 11 of 16 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown, with five carries for another 40 yards. Regardless, there's been no indication that Mallett is in danger of losing the No. 2 quarterback job.
It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Signed to a two-year, $7 million contract in the offseason, the 36-year-old Watson was locked in as Baltimore's starting tight end. The only good news for the team is that it boasts strong depth at the position, though Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger) are nursing injuries of their own, with neither available for Saturday's exhibition. Crockett Gillmore, the starter for most of last season, figures to get the majority of first-team snaps in Saturday's game. Gillmore could take on a lot of Watson's planned workload in the regular season, as he's a much better blocker than Williams or Pitta. Watson will miss the entire season.
Smith didn't practice at all throughout the past week, which could mean he's closer to doubtful than questionable to play, though as a depth player the team may activate him and limit his snaps. If he's held out look for Matt Judon to see some extra reps.
Hurst excelled as an undrafted free agent last year while Monroe proved inconsistent after signing a hefty free-agent deal. He also dealt with injuries that forced him to miss five games.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
Carter originally appeared shaken up, and went with the trainers to undergo concussion tests. He has apparently passed them as he is back on the sideline with his helmet on. The 27-year-old figures to add depth to the Ravens linebacker corps this season.
Reyonlds was competing for a role returning kicks with the Ravens. It is currently being rumored that Devin Hester has been in talks with the team, which would give more context to this move.
Flacco did enough to get his team the win in a defensive battle. His fumble came on a miscommunication with the center which resulted in the ball being snapped when the quarterback wasn't ready. A 66-yard bomb to newly acquired speedster Mike Wallace should have Ravens fans and fantasy owners alike excited for what the duo could be capable of moving forward.
Perriman and rookie Chris Moore logged 26 snaps apiece, trailing Mike Wallace (50) and Steve Smith (40) by a good distance. While it wouldn't be surprising to see a Baltimore receiving corps eventually led by Perriman and Moore, there's not much chance it will come to fruition this season. As such, Perriman is only worth a look in dynasty leagues, or as a bench stash in deeper single-season formats.
Wallace caught a seven-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and a 17-yard score in the fourth, helping the Ravens dig out of a 21-0 deficit accrued in a five-minute span in the first. Wallace wasn't able to generate a big play and didn't rack up the amount of yardage he did in the season opener, but he now has three touchdowns through two games and seems to be developing a nice rapport with Joe Flacco. Wallace could be a strong play once again next week versus a Jaguars defense that allowed four passing scores on Sunday.
Jernigan returns to the practice field after missing the past week with a rib injury. The Ravens take on the Panthers on Thursday in their preseason opener which Jernigan could play in. Look for more updates to come later in the week.
Baltimore continues to stack defensive line depth in this year's draft with the addition of the former Michigan Wolverine. Henry, a 6-3, 303-pounds, he stands to serve as a depth option behind nose tackle Brandon Williams in the middle of the defensive line. Baltimore often rotates its young defensive linemen, so Henry could see some snaps early on, especially if he's able to overtake last year's third-rounder, Carl Davis. Still, Williams is the alpha dog in the middle in Baltimore, so Henry's snap count may be on the lower end early in his career.
It's telling that Moore, a fourth-round rookie, is already getting significant snaps in an offense that also has Mike Wallace (50 snaps), Steve Smith (40), Breshad Perriman (26) and Kamar AIken (23). However, it will be tough for the rookie to truly work his way up the totem pole this season, unless Smith and/or Wallace suffers an injury. Moore may be undervalued in deep dynasty leagues, as the early playing time suggests Baltimore is optimistic about his long-term prospects. With Smith likely playing his last season and Wallace potentially only on the team for one year, Moore could have a starting job as soon as Week 1 next season.
Suggs hasn't played in a preseason tilt since being activated off of the physically unable to perform list early last week. He sat out in the Raven's second game and is expected to sit out the third as the team eases him back from the torn achilles that ended his 2015 campaign. He's been practicing in full and isn't in any jeopardy of missing the season opener. Za'Darius Smith and Matt Judon figure to see some extra game reps if Suggs is held out.
No longer plagued by a knee issue from mid-August, the 22-year-old rookie may immediately step in as Baltimore's nickel or dime back Sunday against Buffalo, as Jerraud Powers missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday. Even when Powers is healthy, Young and Will Davis should have a shot to push for the nickel role.
Weddle and converted cornerback Lardarius Webb are locked in as the starting safeties, with the latter expected to man the free safety spot. While known as a free safety throughout most of this career, the 31-year-old Weddle shouldn't have much trouble transitioning in a Baltimore offense that often uses the two roles interchangeably. Webb may be a sneaky IDP option in certain formats, but Weddle is the clear favorite to lead Baltimore's secondary in tackles, and he also has a solid track record of forcing turnovers, with 19 interceptions, five forced fumbles and six recoveries in 137 career games (122 starts). Still, he's only a strong option in deeper formats, as he managed just 78 tackles over 13 games in his final season with San Diego. He does have 19 career interceptions in nine NFL seasons (137 games), but with just three of those coming in his past 45 games. The Ravens likely just hope he won't make too many mistakes, potentially solidifying a back end that's been vulnerable for years.
A converted wide receiver, Brown was always seen as a long shot to make the Raven's final roster. The Ravens do remain potentially thin at the tight end position, however, with Ben Watson out for the season and both Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams dealing with injuries.
West received three fewer carries than Justin Forsett, but the latter averaged just 2.6 yards per carry and managed just nine yards on three catches. Forsett has a slight edge in usage and production through two weeks, but it is clear that West will handle a sizable chunk of the backfield touches for the time being. The eventual return of rookie Kenneth Dixon (knee) could change this dynamic, but West should play a prominent role again in Week 3 versus Jacksonville.
Held out of the third preseason game with a minor injury, Webb has apparently made a full recovery. The converted conerback is locked in as a starting safety next to Eric Weddle, who looks like the better bet for IDP production.
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.
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.
Released by the 49ers early last season, Wright signed with Baltimore and made six starts in 11 games. He then signed a three-year contract in the offseason, wisely choosing to stick with an organization that seems to constantly have issues at cornerback. The 29-year-old Wright is seemingly locked in as the starter across from Jimmy Smith, who has never been much of an IDP asset. Wright has just one interception in 55 career games, with a career-high mark of 60 tackles (over 14 games in 2014).
Baltimore's leading receiver last season, Aiken has just five catches in three games. He finished fifth among Baltimore wideouts with just 23 offensive snaps in Sunday's contest, offering little hope for fantasy utility down the road. Steve Smith and Mike Wallace are the leading options, but Breshad Perriman and rookie Chris Moore at least have some long-term upside. Aiken, on the other hand, is likely resigned to a depth and special teams role.
The Ravens seemed oddly content to settle for a long field goal with the game on the line, but it perhaps makes a bit more sense for a team that has one of the best kickers in league history. Given his incredible accuracy and leg strength, Tucker is one of the few kickers that deserves fantasy consideration even if he's attached to a lousy offense. The Baltimore offense seems mediocre more so than bad, which makes Tucker one of the better options at his position. He connected from 54, 43, 42 and 37 yards in Sunday's game, with the longest of those putting the Ravens ahead with 62 seconds remaining.
With Connor Shaw (leg) out for the season, Fales will function as the Bears third-string quarterback. Should the team suffer injuries to their top-two quarterbacks, it's entirely possible that the team would be off with a street free agent.
Forsett had a minimal impact Sunday, as he averaged 2.9 yards per carry and an unimpressive two yards per catch. The fact that he continues to see plenty of looks in the passing game is promising, but Terrance West continues to see double-digit carries on a weekly basis and has fared much better in terms of efficiency. The roles of the two backs will bear watching as the season moves on, but a similar distribution of touches should be expected in Week 4 versus the Raiders.
Fullback Shaun Chapas and offensive tackle Brett Van Sloten were waived with injury designations. Baltimore also placed defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, guard Will Rackley and defensive end Brent Urban on injured reserve.
Pitta was unable to match his totals from Week 2 when he torched the Browns for 102 yards on nine catches, but he still finished second on the team in both categories Sunday. The Ravens' skill positions are all rather muddled with serviceable options, but Pitta has reemerged as the go-to tight end and could carve himself a niche as a security blanket of sorts for Joe Flacco. He will draw a favorable matchup in Week 4 versus a Raiders team that has proven susceptible to strong tight end play over the last couple of seasons.
Standing at 6-foot-3, 275 pounds, the Ravens presumably view this Grand Valley State product as an edge defender rather than an interior defender. With a 35-inch vertical and 4.73-second speed, Judon should be able to provide pressure from the edge.
Cox, 28, snapped in seven games in 2014 before tearing his ACL. He was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Bilukidi began his career with the Raiders, he then went on to play for the Bengals and Ravens. The 25-year-old has 16 total tackles, one pass defensed and one sack.
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.
Koch's net punting average (43.3 yards) led the NFL in 2014 and ranked fourth best in league history. He was a first alternate to the Pro Bowl last season.
The 32-year-old Koch holds the franchise records for consecutive games played (144), gross average (45.0), net average (39.0) and punts inside the 20-yard line (251).
Dumervil has now missed the Ravens' first three games due to a continuing recovery from offseason surgery. There was hope earlier in the week that the veteran would be able to go Week 3, but the Ravens are clearly taking a cautious approach with him and his ailment. Za'Darius Smith and Albert McClellan figure to see plenty of added work in Dumervil's absence.
Urban landed on the Ravens' injured reserve/designated to return list after tearing his biceps during training camp, which followed a torn ACL that caused him to miss all of his rookie campaign last year. Now healthy after being sidelined for half of this season, Urban has been given the green light to return to practice this week, although it's unclear if he'll be ready to play already this Sunday against the Jaguars. Whenever Urban is fit to play, he figures to add valuable depth to the Ravens' defensive front.
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.
Davis missed a practice early in August with an undisclosed injury, but he appears fully recovered from whatever kept him out. He's a favorite to land a spot on the back end of the Ravens' secondary depth chart.
Matthews, who was being looked at as a potential No. 3 or 4 wide receiver for Baltimore this season, limped to the locker room just over two weeks ago with an apparent leg injury. With still about three weeks before the start of the regular season, Matthews will have the opportunity to prove his worth as part of the team's receiving corps, provided he stays healthy.
Wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), running back Justin Forsett (knee), tight end Crockett Gilmore (back) and linebacker Albert McClellan (thigh) were all deemed questionable. Forsett returned to practice Friday and is expected to play.
Meanwhile, the following players were ruled probable: Wide receiver Marlon Brown (concussion), tight end Owen Daniels (rest), linebacker C.J. Mosley (wrist), linebacker Daryl Smith (rest), wide receiver Torrey Smith (knee), linebacker Terrell Suggs (rest), defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson (rest), linebacker Courtney Upshaw (hand) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle).
A defensive end at Boise State, the 6-foot-3, 243-pound Correa is mostly expected to serve as a 3-4 outside linebacker for the Ravens, with his biggest contribution expected to come as a pass-rusher. However, with the team lacking depth at both inside and outside linebacker, it makes sense for Correa to be familiar with a bunch of different positions in the front seven, even if he mostly figures to serve as a sub-package rusher in his first season. He's unlikely to establish IDP relevance anytime soon.
A 2014 fourth-round selection, Taliaferro missed all of training camp and the preseason while recovering from Lisfranc surgery. He's been plagued by foot and ankle issues to this point in his career, and the Ravens already have a crowded backfield. Taliaferro will be ineligible for the first six weeks, with Baltimore then having three weeks to activate him from the PUP list once/if he resumes practicing. Taliaferro may ultimately be placed on injured reserve or released with an injury settlement, as Justin Forsett, Terrance West, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon (knee) are all clearly ahead of him on the depth chart.
Elam injured his knee in the second week of the preseason, requiring a clean-up surgery that wasn't expected to end his season. Although he should be healthy before the end of the year, Elam may stay on IR through the end of the season, as he was merely competing for backup role prior to getting injured. The 32nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft has been either ineffective, injured or benched throughout his rookie contract.
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.
The Steelers released defensive backs Isaiah Green, Dayonne Nunley, Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, linebackers Chris Carter, Howard Jones and Dan Molls, and defensive linemen Ethan Hemer, Josh Mauro, Roy Philon and Nick Williams on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, the team cut tight ends Rob Blanchflower, Bryce Davis and David Paulson, running backs Josh Harris and Stephen Houston, wide receivers Derek Moye and Lanear Sampson, offensive linemen Graham Pocic, Will Simmons and Guy Whimper, and quarter Brendon Kay.
Powers has been slowed down by an ankle issue, forcing him to miss the Ravens' season opener against the Bills as well. If he's able to put together a few solid practices this week, he could be ready to see his first regular season action of the 2016 campaign on Sunday against the Browns. Barring any setbacks, he'll battle with Tavon Young for the starting spot at nickelback in the secondary.
Meeting with the media at the NFL Owners Meetings, Harbaugh said he was confident in Timmy Jernigan and Brandon Williams . "There’s no reason we can’t be a great defense and a great defensive front next year," he said, per ESPN.
Jernigan was a second-round draft pick of the Ravens last year. He had four sacks in 12 games as a rookie.
Williams has 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in two years with the Ravens.
Yanda isn't concerned about his contract status, however.
"I'm focused on the mandatory minicamp right now," Yanda said, per the Baltimore Sun. "We'll worry about that when the time comes. Right now, I'm focused on getting better as a football player. I'm not too worried about it. We'll get it done when we get it done. I'm not too worried about it."
Gillmore still has an important part-time role in the Baltimore offense, as he's a better blocker than Dennis Pitta, who has 20 targets over the past two weeks. So long as Pitta stays healthy -- an admittedly shaky proposition -- Gillmore is unlikely to become a major factor in the passing game. And even if Pitta were to suffer another major injury, Maxx Williams' presence might limit Gillmore's targets.
Lewis missed some time in camp with an undisclosed injury, but he should be just fine for Sunday against the Bill. Though he could get some snaps in nickel or dime packages, Lewis is mostly just expected to provide depth behind the starting safety duo of Lardarius Webb and Eric Weddle.
