A Grade 1 sprain is the least severe variety, but with plenty of time remaining in training camp, the Ravens have no reason to rush Dixon back onto the practice field. While the rookie could conceivably return as soon as next week, a longer absence wouldn't necessarily be major cause for concern. Dixon is expected to compete for a role in a Baltimore backfield that also includes Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, Terrance West and Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee). Dixon, Forsett and Allen are seemingly locks to make the final roster.
Although he didn't quite match his rookie-year impact or stat line, Mosley is entrenched as a centerpiece of the Baltimore defense for 2016 and beyond. He and Daryl Smith comprise one of the league's better duos at inside linebacker, but the rest of the Ravens defense needs serious work. Mosley should be a top-10 IDP option at linebacker heading into 2016.
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.
Wilson broke his leg during May minicamp. He was soon waived/injured, but then placed on injured reserve. He already knew he was still in the team's plans, courtesy of John Harbaugh.
"In the NFL, you can get hurt and get cut and that was the first thing on my mind," he told the Baltimore Sun. "John told me as I was on the stretcher, 'We want you with us to get ready for next year.' That was something positive. By next year around this time, I'll be ready to compete."
Wilson, who underwent surgery to repair the damage, was signed an an undrafted free agent, but not ignored. He chose Baltimore over offers from Seattle, Kansas City, Atlanta and Cleveland.
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.
Waller will be able to stay with the team through training camp and the preseason before serving his suspension once the season begins. In six games as a rookie last year, he recorded just two receptions for a total of 18 yards, though he did have a greater impact on special teams, where he was a gunner. He'll look to improve on his offensive numbers from last season once his suspension is complete.
The first tight end taken in the 2015 draft, Williams was mostly quiet for much of the season, playing behind a fellow young tight end in Crockett Gillmore. Williams picked it up during the season's final three weeks, however, totaling 13 catches for 100 yards. Expect Gillmore and Williams to both be featured in the Ravens' 2016 offense, with Gillmore's production to date not quite good enough to preclude Williams from taking over the featured job.
A 2014 UDFA, Orr has a leg up on 2013 second-rounder Arthur Brown in a competition for the starting inside linebacker job next to C.J. Mosley. Already a core special teamer, Orr worked ahead of Brown last season, serving as the top backup to Mosley and Daryl Smith, both of whom topped 115 tackles while occupying three-down roles. With Smith released in the offseason despite recording 120+ tackles in both of this seasons with the Ravens, Orr has a real shot to reach triple digits, putting him on the radar in deeper IDP leagues. However, Brown is likely the superior athlete and could therefore make a push for the job during training camp.
This is an unsurprising move as it has already been announced that the veteran Smith would not be playing in the preseason. He suffered his Achilles injury on Nov. 1, and was not able to participate in any offseason workouts. His role with the team this season remains uncertain until he is able to display he has recovered from the serious injury. However, the Ravens have relatively thin depth in their receiving department, so he will have plenty of opportunity to produce if he can get healthy.
Selected by Tampa Bay in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Clay was scooped off the Buccaneers' practice squad to serve as the Ravens' return specialist. He doesn't offer much promise as a receiver, but he should have every opportunity to lock down a role as Baltimore's primary return man in 2016.
It is the second straight week Richardson will be inactive.
The Colts are currently 7-point underdogs against the Patriots Sunday.
Mallett joined the Ravens in December and ended up starting the final two games, with his performance decent enough to make him the clear favorite for the backup job this season. Despite his reported struggles during OTAs and minicamp, the former third-round selection (2011) remains a heavy favorite to serve as Joe Flacco's top backup, as the Ravens didn't put much effort into finding competition. Jerrod Johnson and Josh Johnson will also get some reps during training camp.
This doesn't seem like a good fit at first glance, as the Ravens used a third-round pick in the 2014 draft on Crockett Gillmore (back/shoulder), then selected Maxx Williams in the second round last season. However, Gillmore needs multiple surgeries this offseason and is likely looking at a prolonged timetable, and Williams didn't impress as a rookie. Known primarily for his blocking ability throughout a lengthy career, the 35-year-old Watson matched or surpassed his career-best receiving marks in every major category in 2015, finishing with a shocking 74-825-6 receiving line on 109 targets. Even if Gillmore in't ready by Week 1, Watson will be a long shot to approach those numbers now that he isn't serving as Drew Brees' primary tight end.
A clear liability for much of the year, Smith came on strong at the very end, notching 3.5 sacks over the final three weeks of the season. The Ravens hope to have Terrell Suggs (Achilles) back in 2016, but Smith might still have a key role in sub packages.
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.
The Bengals will also have five other probable players active for the game, including guard Clint Boling (illness), kicker Mike Nugent (illness), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (hamstring), linebacker Chris Carter (knee) and cornerback Darqueze Dennard (shin).
Four of the team's six questionable players are also active in Week 17, including cornerbacks Adam Jones (illness) and Chris Lewis-Harris (illness), safety Reggie Nelson (illness) and linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (hamstring).
Cincinnati is a 3 1/2-point underdog in Pittsburgh in Week 17.
Just eight months removed from suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee, the 31-year-old quarterback is available for the start of Ravens training camp. Although his Week 1 status doesn't seem to be in question, there is some chance his already-limited mobility will be affected. In any case, Flacco has just 654 rushing yards in 122 career games, though he has run for 13 touchdowns, mostly on QB sneaks.
The 2015 first-round pick missed his entire rookie season with a PCL injury, and suffered a scare earlier in the offseason when he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his other knee. Fortunately, Perriman was able to opt for a stem-cell injection to help the ligament heal and avoid surgery. The Ravens anticipated that he would not be ready for the start of training camp, but remain optimistic he will be ready to return to the field prior to the start of the season. With the uncertainty surrounding veteran Steve Smith Sr. returning from an Achilles injury the Ravens are already thin in the receiving department, which will leave plenty of opportunity for Perriman should his recover remain on track.
Wallace may get another chance to pass the test Thursday, prior to the Ravens' first full-squad practice of training camp. He did hit five of the six benchmarks on the test, suggesting it shouldn't be long before he's on the field. Wallace signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract in March, despite posting a 39-473-2 receiving line for the Vikings last season. It initially appeared he might need to compete for snaps, but with Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (Achilles) uncertain for Week 1, the Ravens may end up relying on Wallace more than originally expected.
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.
Kavell Conner, D.J. Fluker, Dwight Freeney and Rich Ohrnberger will all see action during the contest. Both Conner and Fluker are dealing with ankle injuries. Freeney has a knee issue and Ohrnberger is dealing with a back injury.
Bouncing back from a torn Achilles suffered in Week 1 last season, Suggs was unable to participate in any of the Ravens' offseason program. Head coach John Harbaugh did say a few weeks ago that Suggs had a chance to be ready for the start of training camp, and while it's now clear that won't actually come to fruition, the team does still expect him to be ready for Week 1. With fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) also starting camp on the PUP list, Za'Darius Smith and Kamalei Correa should get plenty of first-team reps.
Weddle joins the Ravens after a wildly productive, nine-year stay in San Diego to begin his career. Over that span, Weddle averaged nearly 95 tackles per season, led the league in interceptions in 2011, and earned three Pro Bowl selections since then as well. At 31 years old, Weddle brings great play-making potential back to Baltimore's free safety position, where he should continue to be a fantasy standout.
Brown didn't survive final cuts before the season, but Baltimore's slew of injuries eventually led to an opportunity. His highlight was a long gain that was called back on a phantom offensive pass interference penalty, depriving him of what should have been his first NFL touchdown. Brown has ideal size at 6-5, 225 pounds, but his lack of quickness will likely resign him to fringe roster status heading into training camp next season. He might eventually consider a position switch to tight end, though such a move would only make sense if he were to latch on with a different organization. Baltimore's need at wide receiver is far greater than the need at tight end.
West, Taliaferro and Trent Richardson (knee) were expected to compete for (possibly) one roster spot, but it appears the latter may have fallen out of the competition after having arthroscopic surgery. It's actually a bit surprising that West worked ahead of 2014 fourth-rounder Taliaferro, who often served as the Ravens' short-yardage/goal-line back when healthy his first two seasons. Granted, foot/ankle injuries have limited Taliaferro to just 16 appearances, and West is reportedly in the best shape of his career. This isn't a high priority battle, as fellow running backs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon are all considered locks for the final roster. The competition between West and Taliaferro might ultimately be decided on special teams.
With Will Hill (suspension) released earlier in the week, Baltimore has glaring needs at both cornerback and safety. Webb has almost exclusively played the former to this point in his career, but he did take some snaps as a safety late in the 2015 season. A position switch would make some sense, as Webb's man coverage skills seem to have eroded faster than his ball skills and tackling.
Wright signed with the Ravens after being cut by the 49ers last season, and went on to start seven games while compiling 40 tackles and five passes defensed for Baltimore. In doing so, Wright mightily helped improve a Ravens pass defense that struggled during the first half of the season. With Wright under contract going forward, he and long-time friend Jimmy Smith project as the team's starting cornerback duo, allowing veteran Lardarius Webb to transition to free safety in the coming campaign.
Brooks sustained ligament tears in his knee last December and is not ready to participate in training camp. If he is unable to play to start the season, his stay on the PUP list would automatically extend through at least six games.
A 2013 second-round selection, Brown has mostly worked on special teams thus far, recording just 17 tackles in 30 career games, with 15 of those tackles coming in his rookie year. Zachary Orr, a 2014 undrafted free agent, mostly worked ahead of Brown throughout the offseason program, after serving as the top backup to C.J. Mosley and Daryl Smith last year. Orr is the clear favorite to start Week 1, but Brown still has time to make a push during training camp.
A 2011 UDFA and a career journeyman, Aiken took advantage of Baltimore's many injuries last season, catching five or more passes in each of the final nine games. To be fair, he was a starter even before all the injuries struck, yet still had just 18 receptions (on 38 targets) through the first seven games of the season. The Ravens responded to last year's struggles by adding depth in the receiving corps, with free-agent signings Mike Wallace and Ben Watson joining 2015 first-rounder Breshad Perriman and second-rounder Maxx Williams -- neither of whom had much impact as a rookie. The team also hopes to have Steve Smith (Achilles) available, though it's far from a sure thing he'll be ready by Week 1. While the competition for targets has drastically increased, Aiken proved to be a capable possession receiver and could reprise a similar role -- albeit with fewer targets -- during the upcoming campaign. Offering reliable hands at 6-2, 215 pounds, Aiken provides a nice contrast to the speedier Wallace and Perriman. It should be an interesting training camp for the Baltimore receiving corps.
Tucker took a hard stance by saying he wouldn't re-sign with Baltimore if no long-term deal was reached by Friday's deadline, and the Ravens responded by giving him the most money guaranteed to a kicker in NFL history. At 26 years old, Tucker has converted nearly 88 percent of his field goal attempts across four seasons and has never missed an extra point, emerging as one of the league's best kickers along the way.
Now more than five months removed from breaking his arm, Forsett was always expected to make a full recovery long before the start of training camp. He was a full participant in Baltimore's first round of OTAs, reportedly looking like his usual self. The only question is how he'll fare in the competition for snaps and touches, as he and Javorius Allen are expected to battle in training camp, with fourth-round rookie Kenneth Dixon also a candidate to earn a role.
A 2014 UDFA, Butler opened his 2015 season buried on the Baltimore depth chart, but injuries eventually allowed him to work as the No. 2 receiver. He caught three or more passes in each of the final seven games, posting a 30-342-0 receiving line (on 42 targets) during that stretch. Although he probably did enough to lock down a roster spot for 2016, Butler will presumably drift back toward the bottom of the depth chart unless the Ravens' receiving corps suffers another run of terrible injury luck.
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 hasn't played in a game since September 2014, when he suffered a fractured and dislocated right hip for the second time in two years. Retirement was a real possibility at one point, but Pitta reportedly looked good during the Ravens' offseason program. Now 30 years old and still carrying significant risk of re-injury, Pitta will need to compete for a role on a team that also has Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams at tight end.
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 enters the 2016 campaign coming off right foot surgery, but it appears he'll be full-go at training camp prior to the regular season. He currently slates in as the top cornerback for the Ravens on the outside with Shareece Wright across from him.
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 missed the Ravens' offseason program after having a preventative procedure on his foot/ankle. Neither team nor player has provided much information about the issue, but there's been no suggestion that Dumervil is in any real danger of missing Week 1. With fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles) also unavailable for the start of training camp, Za'Darius Smith and second-round rookie Kamalei Correa could get extended work with the first-team defense.
We're not sure if the Bills are just about done with Manuel and his inconsistent play or if Johnson - signed as a free agent a month ago - has started showing enough in practices that the Bills decided to make a change in the pecking order. For now, if your league goes deep enough to where backup quarterbacks matter, Johnson looks like the direct insurance behind the surprisingly capable Taylor.
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.
This is an unsurprising move as the 25-year-old Richardson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late June, and was expected to miss several weeks as a result. The third pick in the 2012 draft is hoping to find new life in Baltimore this season, but will need to get back on the field to earn his way into the mix.
Justin Forsett (broken arm) has plenty of time to recover and is signed for two more years on a reasonable contract, but Allen showed enough promise as a rookie -- particularly in the passing game -- to at least have a fair shot at earning the starting job. Allen only averaged 3.8 yards per carry with a 137-514-1 rushing line, but he got the majority of his touches late in the season when Baltimore's offense was ravaged by injuries. He also turned 61 targets into a 45-353-2 receiving line, with 37 receptions over the final seven weeks of the season.
Traded from Miami to Baltimore in September in exchange for a late-round draft pick, Davis served as the Ravens' nickelback before tearing an ACL for the second time in two years. Given the shaky state of Baltimore's depth chart at cornerback, Davis could compete with the likes of Shareece Wright and Jerraud Powers for the starting job across from Jimmy Smith (foot). Davis will be 11 months removed from suffering the injury when Week 1 rolls around.
Matthews' deal is for one year and $600,000. The Ravens picked up Matthews when he was cut by the Seahawks midseason. After joining the Ravens he played in four games, catching nine passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. He'll be buried on the depth chart in the upcoming campaign and will have to fight for any snaps he can get. His biggest impact will likely be on special teams, where he played in 11.7 percent of the team's snaps last season, despite only participating in four games.
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.
Absent for the start of training camp after reportedly enjoying a healthy offseason, the 2014 fourth-round draft pick is apparently now dealing with yet another foot injury. Taliaferro's first two professional seasons were both cut short by foot/ankle injuries, and he'll likely need to fight for a roster spot this time around.
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.
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.
Powers was one of three Ravens to fail said test -- also, wideouts Mike Wallace and Dobson Collins -- but once cleared, he appears to be the No. 1 choice to handle slot corner duties with his new organization.
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.
Campanaro has dealt with a long list of soft-tissue injuries since he was selected in the seventh round of the 2014 draft, limiting him to just eight games through his first two professional seasons. However, he's made a strong impression when healthy, showing promise as both a slot receiver and return specialist. After missing part of the offseason program due to the calf injury, Campanaro should enter training camp at 100 percent. He's acknowledged that this will be his make-or-break season, as the Ravens have a deep group at wide receiver, potentially leaving him on the roster bubble.
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."
Reports on Gillmore's health have been all over the place this offseason, as it was initially reported he might need two or three surgeries, with his back and both of his shoulders problematic. The flame was fueled when the Ravens signed Ben Watson, a capable in-line blocker who also caught a career-high 74 passes for the Saints last season. As it turns out, Gillmore only needed surgery on one of his shoulders, setting him up for a return at the beginning of camp. Though looking better than expected from a health standpoint, Gillmore is unlikely to regain the bit of fantasy utility he carved out last season, as he'll now have to compete with Watson, 2015 second-rounder Maxx Williams and (possibly) Dennis Pitta (hip) for snaps at tight end. The Ravens also added depth at running back and wide receiver, albeit with no clear top target among the bunch.
Signed to a three-year, $5.4 million contract before the season, Lewis pretty much gave the Ravens what they paid for, providing sub-par but mostly competent play at safety. The team will likely look for an upgrade during the offseason, but it's entirely possible Lewis will return as a starter.
