Woodrum was diagnosed with a torn pectoral muscle, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Woodrum had to leave Thursday's preseason game against the Browns with what initially was deemed a shoulder injury, but an MRI showed otherwise. Coach Jay Gruden said the team would add another quarterback to the roster shortly.
Woodrum is slated to undergo an MRI on his shoulder Friday morning, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Woodrum was hit hard during the fourth quarter of Thursday's preseason action against the Browns, and he'll head for further testing as a result.
Woodrum signed a contract with the Redskins on Thursday. Woodrum initially slots in as the clear No. 3 quarterback behind Case Keenum and Colt McCoy (leg) and the Redskins figure to only bring in more competition via the draft or undrafted free agent market as the offseason continues to unfold.
Ravens head coach John Harbuagh suggested Woodrum could be in the mix for the No. 2 quarterback job this upcoming season, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Woodrum has spent time with the Giants, Ravens and Browns since going undrafted out of Liberty University in 2016. He's yet to appear in a regular-season game but is the only quarterback besides Joe Flacco on Baltimore's current roster. The Ravens figure to secure an upgrade, or at least some competition, prior to the start of Organized Team Activities in May. The 25-year-old did look good in limited action for Baltimore last preseason, completing 25 of 36 passes for 321 yards (8.9 per attempt) with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He then spent most of the season on the practice squad while Ryan Mallett served as Flacco's backup. Mallett is an unrestricted free agent.
The Ravens signed Woodrum to a reserve/future contract Monday. Woodrum impressed in the preseason, completing 69 percent of his passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, while adding 42 rushing yards and two rushing scores on 16 carries. With incumbent No. 2 quarterback Ryan Mallett set to hit free agency this offseason, Woodrum has a legitimate shot to crack the Ravens' 53-man roster in 2018.
