Position Listing
C.J. Mosley
News
Mosley finished the 2015 season with 117 tackles (77 solo), four sacks, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 16 games.

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.

Ryan Jensen
News
The Ravens announced on Friday that tight end Phillip Supernaw, safety Brynden Trawick, cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive lineman Ryan Jensen signed their exclusive-rights free agent tenders.

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.

 

Micajah Reynolds
News
The Dolphins have confirmed that they have waived tight end Michael Egnew. They have also let go of defensive tackle Micajah Reynolds and waived/injured defensive back Jalil Brown.
Injury
Matt Schaub
News
Schaub said he does not plan to retire, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

The 34-year-old Schaub only had a one-year contract with the Ravens and probably didn't do enough to earn another look. He should still get an opportunity with another organization, but he'll be a long shot to make a final roster, which could eventually lead to his retirement.

Julian Wilson
News
Rookie cornerback Julian Wilson is getting a second chance with the Ravens. It won't come this year, but he embraces the future opportunity.

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.

Injury
Leg - IR. Out for season
Jeremy Zuttah
News
Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah was able to practice during Thursday's final minicamp session, according to the team's site. 

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.

Injury
Darren Waller
News
A hamstring injury has landed Waller on IR, the Baltimore Sun reports.

In six games for the Ravens this season, the sixth-rounder recorded just two catches for 18 yards, but Waller will be missed on special teams, given the impact that he made as a gunner on that front.

Injury
Hamstring - IR. Out for season
Maxx Williams
News
Williams brought in six of 10 targets for 53 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

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.

Terrence Magee
News
Magee, an undrafted rookie, had two carries for five yards and one catch for two yards in 2015.

With Justin Forsett (arm) expected to be healthy long before training camp, Magee will merely be competing for one of the final roster spots in 2016. If Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) is also healthy, the Ravens will probably be set at running back.

Zach Orr
News
The Ravens have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 9 matchup with the Steelers: wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot), safety Terrence Brooks, linebacker Zach Orr, defensiven end Lawrence Guy and offensive linemen Gino Gradkowski and Jah Reid.

Both Campanaro and Smith were ruled out on Friday's injury report. The Ravens had three players listed as questionable, and all are active for the NFC North battle.

Steve Smith
News
Smith (Achilles) said he intends to return for the 2016 season, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Of course he does. Even if Smith hadn't suffered a torn Achilles amidst a lost season for his team, he might've considered un-announcing his retirement, unless the Ravens had won a Super Bowl. Not wanting to finish his career on such an obvious low note, the future Hall of Famer will take one last shot at winning his first ring. The real question is whether he'll actually be able to contribute, as a torn Achilles' is a tough injury for any player to recover from, often limiting the individual's effectiveness the following season. Given his position and age (he turns 37 in May), Smith faces a tougher path than most, even when accounting for his (in)famous determination.

Injury
Achilles - IR. Out for season
Kaelin Clay
News
Clay returned 23 punts for 244 yards and a touchdown, adding 14 kickoff returns for 343 yards, in seven games during his rookie season.

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.

Sheldon Price
News
The Colts have declared the following players as inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game: Trent Richardson, Griff Whalen, Sheldon Price, Xavier Nixon, Jonotthan Harrison, Bjoern Werner and Zach Kerr.

It is the second straight week Richardson will be inactive. 

The Colts are currently 7-point underdogs against the Patriots Sunday.

Jumal Rolle
News
The Texans are exploring trade scenarios for cornerbacks Charles James and Jumal Rolle, according to The Houston Chronicle.
Ryan Mallett
News
Mallet completed 30 of 56 passes for 292 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Bengals.

Mallet connected with seven different receivers, targeting Javorius Allen, Maxx Williams and Kamar Aiken each at least 10 times, though Aiken led the team with only 76 receiving yards, while fullback Kyle Juszczyk caught the lone touchdown pass. Mallet was a late-season injury replacement with no guarantee of being in Baltimore next season, and even if he is, it'll be as a backup to Joe Flacco.

Nordly Capi
News
The Jaguars placed defensive end Nordly Capi on the Active/non-football injury list on Tuesday, the team announced. Capi went undrafted out of Akron. 
Marcel Jones
News
The Saints have knocked their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players Saturday.

Among the offense players let go are center Matt Armstrong, wide receivers Seantavius Jones , Brandon Coleman and Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guards Jason Weaver and Marcel Jones, tackles Tavon Rooks and Thomas Welch and running backs Greg Jones and Derrick Strozier.

The defenders cut loose are cornerbacks Trevin Wade, Terrence Frederick and Derrius Brooks, linebackers Keyunta Dawson and Todd Davis, tackle Lawrence Virgil, safety Pierre Warren.

Placekickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke are also out.

Eric Herman
News
The Giants declared linebacker Devon Kennard (toe), wideout Corey Washington, cornerback Jayron Hosley, offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Eric Herman, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton and tight end Jerome Cunningham inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
John Urschel
News
The following players have been ruled inactive for the Ravens in Week 5 against the Colts: Chris Canty, Arthur Brown, Eugene Monroe, John Urschel, Phillip Supernaw, Timmy Jernigan and Michael Campanaro.
Za'Darius Smith
News
Smith, a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, finished his rookie season with 30 tackles (20 solo), 5.5 sacks and a blocked kick in 15 games.

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.

James Hurst
News
Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe is set as the starter this season, according to the Baltimore Sun, which is reporting that there will be no open competition at that spot despite the emergence of James Hurst.

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.

Anthony Levine
News
The Ravens listed defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Houston.

Canty has not been able to practice all week.

The Ravens listed the following players as probable: Owen Daniels, Will Hill, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Levine, Kelechi Osemele, Bernard Pierce, Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs.

The Ravens are 5-point favorites.

Chris Carter
News
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (biceps) is active for Sunday's regular-season finale agains the Steelers after being listed as probable on the final injury report for Week 17.

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.

Brynden Trawick
News
The Ravens announced on Friday that tight end Phillip Supernaw, safety Brynden Trawick, cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive lineman Ryan Jensen signed their exclusive-rights free agent tenders.

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.

 

Joe Flacco
News
Flacco (torn ACL) said his recovery is going well so far, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The Ravens tentatively expect Flacco to be ready by Week 1, and the quarterback recently echoed that sentiment in an interview with Baltimore's WBAL Radio. He tore his ACL on Nov. 22 and had surgery Dec. 8, giving him nine months to recover before the start of the 2016 season. It remains to be seen what kind of talent he'll be surrounded by, as Steve Smith (Achilles) and 2015 first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman (knee) are working their way back from serious injuries of their own. The Ravens also have 2015 breakout performer Kamer Aiken, along with a promising group of tight ends, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team add more skill-position talent in the draft. Although a potential contract renegotiation might lead to some offseason headlines, Flacco is certain to be back with the team in 2016. Any negotiating will just be a matter of deferring part of his cap hit to 2017 and 2018.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Alonzo Harris
News
Harris was released by the Packers in advance of Thursday's game at Detroit, the Packers' official site reports.

Active in just six games this season, Harris turned four carries in 19 yards and couldn't haul in his sole target. The Packers have opted to promote John Crockett from the practice squad to fill Harris' spot on the 53-man roster. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Harris could very well complete a perfect swap.

Chris Givens
News
Givens caught 19 passes for 346 yards and a touchdown on 53 targets in 12 games with the Ravens in 2015.

Traded from the Rams to the Ravens for a conditional draft pick in early October, Givens did nothing to suggest that he's a part of the team's future, whereas Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler both impressed late in the season. Even if he returns in 2016, Givens will face an uphill battle to earn a roster spot.

Breshad Perriman
News
Perriman (knee) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Injured during the first practice of training camp, Perriman was initially expected to be ready early in the season, but things have increasingly been moving in this direction since September. He should have plenty of time to recover before training camp next season, and while his career is obviously off to a poor start, the Ravens aren't going to give up on their 2015 first-round selection. With Steve Smith (Achilles) recovering from an even more serious injury and possibly headed for retirement, the Ravens likely envision Perriman as their No. 1 or 2 wideout next season. Of course, he was widely viewed as a boom-or-bust player coming out of the draft, and his rookie season (or lack thereof) won't do anything to change the perception. Perriman is still worth holding in most dynasty leagues, but it's far too early to have any kind of read on his 2016 value.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Timmy Jernigan
News
Jernigan finished 2015 with 37 tackles (18 solo) and four sacks in 15 games.

A second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Jernigan failed to build on a promising rookie season but presumably did enough to keep a hold on his starting job. The Ravens will be expecting significant improvement in 2016.

De'Ondre Wesley
No Updates
Cam Worthy
News
The Ravens have waived undrafted rookie Cam Worthy and signed fellow wideout Tom Nelson, a converted safety, per ESPN.

Nelson last played for Philadelphia in 2011, but has since occupied a roster spot for Carolina.

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Terrell Suggs
News
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome expects Suggs (torn Achilles) to return for the 2016 season, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Suggs suffered the second torn Achilles of his career in Week 1, leaving the Baltimore defense without arguably its most important player for the entire season. He made a miraculously quick recovery from the injury back in 2012, but he didn't return to his usual form until the following season. Now 33 years old, Suggs is signed through 2018 on a contract that has team-friendly cap numbers, but with a high percentage of the money guaranteed. While it would be shocking if he opted for retirement, there's no assurance that he'll ever be a dominant player again.

Injury
Achilles - IR. Out for season
Will Hill
News
Hill finished the 2015 season with 64 tackles (49 solo), an interception and a sack in 15 games.

Hill doesn't make many big plays or accumulate gaudy tackle totals, but he's been the most consistent player in a shaky defensive backfield over the past two seasons, rarely giving up big gains in coverage. He's locked in as a starter for 2016, albeit with minimal IDP appeal.

Ricky Wagner
News
Ravens tackle Rick Wagner , who suffered a season-ending foot injury in December, should be back by training camp in July.

Coach John Harbaugh, meeting with the media at the NFL Owners Meetings on Tuesday, said that the start of training camp was Wagner's target date, per the Baltimore Sun.

Daryl Smith
News
Smith finished 2015 with 121 tackles (72 solo), three sacks and an interception in 16 games.

Smith and fellow inside linebacker C.J. Mosley both played nearly every defensive snap for a second straight season. Even with Smith turning 34 in May, the duo will likely return for a third consecutive year, providing some form of stability to an otherwise shaky defense. Smith has topped 120 tackles in each of his three seasons with the Ravens, after failing to do so even once during his nine years in Jacksonville.

Daniel Brown
News
Brown, an undrafted rookie out of James Madison, finished the 2015 season with six catches for 64 yards on 11 targets in six games

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.

Terrance West
News
West had 46 carries for 180 yards and four catches for 21 yards in six games with the Ravens.

West, a Baltimore native, was traded from the Browns to the Titans in September, then later released by Tennessee in November. He caught on with his hometown team and even had a significant role in a few late-season games, but with Justin Forsett (arm) and Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) both expected back in 2016, West doesn't necessarily have a future in Baltimore.

Lardarius Webb
News
Webb finished the 2015 season with 54 tackles (48 solo) and one interception in 15 games.

With nagging hip and back injuries in his rear-view mirror, there was some hope that Webb would return to his prime form in 2015. While that didn't ultimately come to fruition, he probably did enough to keep his starting job for at least one more season. The 30-year-old Webb is signed through 2017.

Kyle Arrington
News
The Ravens have signed cornerback Kyle Arrington to a three-year contract, pending a physical, the team announced on Wednesday.

Arrington was cut by the Patriots on Tuesday. He totaled 39 tackles with two forced fumbles and two touchdowns in 14 games this season. 

Shareece Wright
News
Cornerback Shareece Wright was signed by the Ravens on Tuesday.

Despite signing a one-year, $3 million contract in the offseason, Wright couldn't get on the field for a corner-needy San Francisco team, eventually leading to his release. He'll now join one of the few teams that is in worse shape at his position.

Terrence Brooks
News
Ravens reserve free safety Terrence Brooks has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

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.

Courtney Upshaw
News
Upshaw finished the 2015 season with 51 tackles (29 solo), two sacks, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.

With Terrell Suggs (Achilles) suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1, Upshaw started a career-high 15 games. Now set to become an unrestricted free agent, the former second-round pick will surely draw interest as an early-down run stopper, but his lack of pass-rushing ability will limit the size of his second contract. It's unclear if the Ravens are interested in retaining Upshaw.

Arthur Brown
News
Linebacker Arthur Brown has had a disappointing two years in the NFL since being drafted as a possible replacement for Ravens legend Ray Lewis, but he is hoping that getting bigger will help him make an impact, per the Baltimore Sun

Brown played in just four games last season and made zero tackles. In the offseason, Brown bulked up to 242 pounds in the hopes of seeing more playing time. 

"I'm getting bigger," Brown said. "I put on some weight and I'm maintaining it right now. I do feel good moving around. It's about keeping it on."

Brown will have to first start on special teams since he is third on the Ravens depth chart at inside linebacker. 

That's how I need to make it on the field is in that phase of the game," he said.

Kamar Aiken
News
Aiken easily set career-high marks in every major receiving category in 2015, catching 75 passes for 944 yards and five touchdowns on 127 targets.

It was a tale of two seasons for Aiken, a 26-year-old former UDFA who had just 24 career receptions (all in 2014) prior to 2015. He opened the year as Baltimore's No. 2 wide receiver, but he was largely an afterthought until Steve Smith (Achilles) suffered a season-ending injury in Week 8. Aiken then erupted for 50 receptions over the final eight games of the season, with at least five catches and seven targets in each of those contests. The production was largely due to the Ravens' lack of other options in the passing game, but with Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) both facing uncertain futures, it's not entirely clear that the team will have an improved receiving corp in 2016. Aiken thus offers considerable potential for next season, though it's also quite possible he'll be bumped back to a complementary role.

Justin Tucker
News
Tucker made 33 of his 40 field-goal attempts (82.5 percent) and all 29 of his extra-point tries during the 2015 season.

Six of his misses came from 50-plus yards, with the other coming from 40-49. Tucker can become an unrestricted free agent in March, and he has a very strong case to become the highest-paid kicker in NFL history. However, the Ravens may opt to use the franchise tag, which would make Tucker a very nice bargain, at least for 2016. The most likely scenario features the Ravens using the franchise tag, then using it as leverage to negotiate a long-term contract. Tucker has proven to be a top-notch fantasy kicker, even when the Baltimore offense is mediocre.

Justin Forsett
News
Forsett (arm) said he should be healthy in a couple of weeks, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Forsett broke his forearm Nov. 22 and missed the rest of the season, but he should be ready for the start of offseason workouts. The real question is whether he'll be able to hold off Javorius Allen in a potential competition for the starting job.

Injury
Arm - IR. Out for season
Jeremy Butler
News
Butler finished the 2015 season with 31 catches for 363 yards on 43 targets in eight games,

Butler, a 2014 UDFA, emerged as Baltimore's No. 2 wide receiver by the end of the season, catching three or more passes in each of the team's last seven games. He needed a few injuries ahead of him to get the opportunity, but even without any touchdown catches, he posted impressive efficiency numbers for a guy playing with replacement-level quarterbacks. The Ravens probably hope to have Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) as the starting wide receivers in 2016, but both Butler and Kamar Aiken made strong cases to maintain roles in the offense.

Kapron Lewis-Moore
News
The Ravens waived safety Omar Brown, linebackers Nick DiMarco and Austin Spitler, punter Richie Leone, offensive tackle David Mims, cornerbacks Marrio Norman and Deji Olatoye, receivers LaQuan Williams and Mike Willie and running back Cierre Wood.

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.

Konrad Reuland
News
Reuland was signed by the Ravens on Tuesday.

With Baltimore's top three tight ends either injured or suspended, Reuland and Richard Gordon were both added to the roster Tuesday afternoon. It's unlikely either has a major role in Week 14, as the team expects Maxx Williams (concussion) and/or Crockett Gillmore (back) to be ready.

Dennis Pitta
News
Pitta (hip) acknowledged that he has begun to think about life after football, but he also said that he still has a desire to play, the Ravens' official website reports.

Pitta missed the entire 2015 season after dislocating his left hip in both 2013 and 2014. He practiced for a few weeks in late October and early November, but doctors ultimately recommended that he sit out the entire season. If he were to resume his career, Pitta would be at increased risk of suffering additional hip injuries, which could lead to serious health problems later in life. Also, the Ravens no longer have need of a tight end, as second-year pro Crockett Gillmore and rookie Maxx Williams appear to have the team in good hands at the position. Pitta will give it another shot in a few months, but it won't be surprising if he ultimately shifts his focus to either coaching or a non-football career.

Injury
Hip - IR. Out for season
Morgan Cox
News
The Ravens have signed long snapper Morgan Cox and defensive end Christo Bilukidi, according to the Baltimore Sun.

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.

Carl Davis
No Updates
Jimmy Smith
News
Smith finished the 2015 season with 54 tackles (48 solo), three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and a sack in 16 games.

Smith bounced back from Lisfranc surgery to start all 16 games, albeit with mixed results. He did play better toward the end of the season, and his contract ensures that he'll be back in Baltimore as the starting right cornerback in 2016. Smith has mostly been an effective cover corner throughout his career, but he's never been much of an IDP option.

Sam Koch
News
The Ravens reached a five-year contract extension with punter Sam Koch on Thursday. The deal is worth $16.25 million, which includes a $4 million signing bonus, according to multiple reports.

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).

Elvis Dumervil
News
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 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.

Leon Brown
No Updates
Brent Urban
News
Urban (biceps) has been cleared to return to practice.

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.

Nick Boyle
News
Boyle, who was suspended for the final four games of the 2015 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, finished his rookie campaign with 18 catches for 153 yards in 11 games.

A fifth-round rookie, Boyle looked pretty good in his limited playing time, but with tight end standing out as a strength on the Baltimore roster, there's little reason to believe that he'll be anything more than a blocking specialist in 2016. Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams will compete for most of the targets.

Lawrence Guy
News
The Ravens re-signed defensive Lawrence Guy to a two-year contract, the team announced. Guy, 25, appeared in 11 games with Baltimore last season, making 16 tackles.
Javorius Allen
News
Allen could enter 2016 as the Ravens' top running back, according to the team's official website.

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.

Nick Perry
News
Packers linebacker Nick Perry said he had offseason surgery to repair an injured shoulder he sustained during the season, according to ESPN.com. 

"In order to become successful you had to make sure you don't go into the next year with things lingering on," Perry said. "Without a question, it was something that had to be done. We're good now. We're on the right track. So we're looking good."

The surgery is why he has been unable to practice with his teammates this offseason. It's also unknown if he'll be cleared by training camp. 

Perry totaled 22 tackles and three sacks in 2014. 

Kelechi Osemele
News
The Ravens listed defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Houston.

Canty has not been able to practice all week.

The Ravens listed the following players as probable: Owen Daniels, Will Hill, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Levine, Kelechi Osemele, Bernard Pierce, Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs.

The Ravens are 5-point favorites.

Will Davis
News
Ravens cornerback Will Davis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Acquired from the Dolphins in exchange for a late-round draft pick just a few weeks ago, Davis quickly emerged as the nickel back for a corner-needy Baltimore defense. The former third-round draft pick initially acquitted himself well, only to suffer a torn ACL Sunday against Cleveland.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Eugene Monroe
News
Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) is inactive Sunday against the Bengals.

Monroe will rest for the second straight week, leaving Joe Flacco once again without his regular left tackle.

Injury
Chris Matthews
News
Matthews caught one pass for 21 yards on two targets in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.

The 6-5 Matthews caught a 21-yard pass in garbage time with one of his former teammates draped all over him. He didn't show any ability to get open, but with the Ravens trying to evaluate a number of young players, Matthews could get some more snaps in Week 15 against the Chiefs. He's merely the No. 4 or 5 wide receiver in a struggling offense.

Blaine Clausell
No Updates
Chase Ford
News
Ford was signed by the Ravens on Tuesday.

The Ravens must hold Ford in high regard, as tight end is one of the few positions on the roster that appears to be in good shape. Ford still doesn't figure to have much of a role in the offense.

Injury
Shoulder - IR. Out for season
Albert McClellan
News
The Ravens ruled out cornerback Tramain Jacobs (thigh) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He was the only player on Baltimore's final injury report ruled out for Week 14.

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).

Lorenzo Taliaferro
News
Taliaferro (foot) could compete with Justin Forsett (arm) and Javorius Allen for playing time in 2016, the Ravens' official website reports.

Taliaferro opened the 2015 season as Baltimore's starting running back, but a foot injury landed him on IR in October. He actually suffered the same fate the previous year, albeit later in the season. Given his injury woes and modest receiving skills, Taliaferro will likely enter training camp as the No. 3 running back, assuming he's healthy enough to participate.

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Matt Elam
News
The Ravens announced Tuesday they have placed four players on the season-ending injury reserve list, including safety Matt Elam, per a team release. 

Elam tore his bicep on the first day the team put on pads in camp, so his designation to the injury list is not a surprise. 

In addition to Elam, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Steve Means and tight end Allen Reisner are sidelined for the season. 

Injury
Biceps - IR. Out for season
Kyle Juszczyk
News
Juszczyk finished the 2015 season with 41 catches for 321 yards and four touchdowns, adding three yards on two carries.

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.

Chuck Jacobs
News
The Ravens have promoted Jacobs from their practice squad to the team's 53-man roster.

In corresponding moves, the Ravens waived fellow wideout Joe Morgan, while adding Chris Matthews to their practice squad. For now, Jacobs slots in as a depth wideout/return option for the team, which is now quarterbacked by Matt Schaub in the wake of Joe Flacco's season-ending injury.

Allen Reisner
News
The Ravens announced Tuesday they have placed four players on the season-ending injury reserve list, including safety Matt Elam, per a team release. 

Elam tore his bicep on the first day the team put on pads in camp, so his designation to the injury list is not a surprise. 

In addition to Elam, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Steve Means and tight end Allen Reisner are sidelined for the season. 

Injury
Ankle - IR. Out for season
Brandon Williams
News
The Ravens parted ways with Haloti Ngata, dealt to the Lions in the offseason. Coach John Harbaugh is confident that the center of the team's defensive line will hold up, however. 

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. 

Jimmy Clausen
News
Clausen is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

With Clausen inactive, Ryan Mallett is slated to start Sunday's game, with Matt Schaub on hand to serve as the team's No. 2 QB in Week 16.

Michael Campanaro
News
Campanaro believes 2016 will be a make-or-break season for him, the Ravens' official website reports.

A seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Campanaro has done enough in the preseason to maintain a roster spot, but injuries have limited him to just eight regular-season games in two years. He may have to fight for his job in 2016, after suffering a season-ending herniated disc in October.

Injury
Back - IR. Out for season
Marshal Yanda
News
Ravens offensive guard Marshal Yanda will play the final year of his five-year contract this upcoming season. 

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."

Chris Canty
News
Left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) and defensive end Chris Canty (calf) are two starters that have been ruled out by the Ravens for the Sunday game against Cincinnati.

The former sustained his head injury in the opener and hasn't played since. The latter played briefly in Week 2 before going down.

Injury
Pectoral - IR. Out for season
Crockett Gillmore
News
Gillmore (back) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houst on Chronicle reports.

In what was been a lost season in Baltimore for some time, Gillmore will join 19 other Ravens already on IR. Although his second professional campaign is over, he impressed at times, hauling in 33 of 47 targets for 412 yards and four touchdowns. Expect him to compete with 2015 first-round pick Maxx Williams for the top TE gig next year.

Injury
Back - IR. Out for season
Kendrick Lewis
News
Lewis finished the 2015 season with 61 tackles (38 solo) and a forced fumble in 15 games.

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.

Harold Spears
News
The Saints were busy making personnel changes on Friday. The team signed defensive tackle Kevin Williams and waived rookie tight end Harold Spears, per The Times-Picayune.

Williams, a six-time Pro Bowler, signed a one-year deal with the Saints. He's played in 187 games over the last 12 years, and started eight games last season while recording 30 tackles and three sacks.

Spears caught 56 passes for 838 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at New Hampshire last year.

Marlon Brown
News
Brown (back) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday afternoon.

Brown hasn't played since Week 11 and didn't have much of an impact when he was healthy. It's unclear what Baltimore's receiving corps will look like next season, but there's no reason to believe that Brown will be a major part of the plan. His contract only runs through 2015, so he may look to catch on with another team.

Injury
Back - IR. Out for season
Tray Walker
News
The NFL draft is always a bit of a crapshoot, but even moreso in the later rounds. Every selection is hit-or-miss.

That certainly holds true for Ravens fourth-rounder Tray Walker. The 200-pound cornerback out of Texas Southern was not even invited to the NFL scouting combine despite his 4.4 speed. But he visited many teams and finally landed in Baltimore.

John Harbaugh knew all about him. So did general manager Ozzie Newsome. "He's a guy that we had targeted," Harbaugh said. "We really hoped to get him in the draft. He's a guy that we wanted to get in the mid-rounds. ... We know for a fact that he would have been gone with our next pick in the fifth round. He would have been gone early in that round."

Walker is the first Texas Souther player chosen since wideout Joey Jamison was taken by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2000 draft. And the rookie cornerback is living up to expectations.

"Tray has done well," Harbaugh said. "Really excited about Tray. He looks very good up here."
