  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Returns to practice

    Ricard (hip) was reinstated from the active/PUP list Monday, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports.

    Ricard has been sidelined since the start of training camp due to hip surgery he had in June. However, now that he passed his physical Monday, he can practice with the team. The 29-year-old should remain the Ravens' fullback for the 2023 campaign.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Placed on PUP list

    Ricard (hip) was placed on the active/PUP list by the Ravens on Friday.

    Ricard will open training camp on the sidelines as he continues to recover from the hip surgery he underwent in the offseason. The fullback is eligible to return to practice and play at any point heading into the preseason, with Baltimore's first exhibition set for Aug. 12 versus the Eagles.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Underwent surgery

    Ricard had offseason hip surgery and is expected to start training camp on the preseason PUP list, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Ricard appeared in all 17 games for the Ravens last season. Although best known for his blocking capabilities, he recorded a career-high seven rushing attempts for 16 yards last season, as well as 11 receptions on 13 targets for 64 yards, which were career highs as well. It's unknown if the veteran fullback is in danger of missing any of the regular season.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: No touches in Week 18

    Ricard didn't record a carry and didn't draw a target while playing 38 of the Ravens' 75 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Bengals.

    Despite playing more than half the snaps on offense in each of the Ravens' final three regular-season games, Ricard failed to receive a touch on offense. He finished the 2022 campaign with seven carries for 16 yards to go along with 11 catches for 74 yards on 13 targets, with most of his production coming when quarterback Lamar Jackson was in the lineup before missing the final five games with a knee injury. Ricard should continue to see plenty of snaps in Sunday's rematch with the Bengals in the wild-card round, but if his usage in recent weeks is any indication, he'll deployed almost exclusively as a blocker.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Targeted three times in loss

    Ricard recorded two receptions for 15 yards on three targets in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Jaguars.

    Ricard remains one of the NFL's more heavily used fullbacks, as he's played at least 53 percent of the Ravens' offensive snaps in each of the team's 11 games to date. Despite the significant playing time, Ricard is rarely much more than a dump-off target or occasional short-yardage option for the Ravens on the occasions he's not blocking. He's carried five times for 14 yards and has 10 receptions for 74 yards on the season but has yet to find the end zone.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Goes untargeted in win

    Ricard didn't draw a target while playing 39 of the Ravens' 61 offensive snaps in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Bengals.

    Though Ricard gained 20 yards across his four touches (one carry, three receptions) in last week's loss to the Bills, the Ravens didn't look to keep the fullback involved in Week 5. Ricard will continue to function mostly as a blocker while he's on the field, and he's unlikely to be a high-priority target for Lamar Jackson on the occasions that he runs routes.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Misses practice again

    Ricard (calf) did not practice Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Ricard was unable to practice Wednesday as well, which may not bode well for the fullback's availability Sunday. If Ricard is unable to go, it's hard to say how the Ravens may handle the position, as he's the only fullback on the active roster. When Ricard missed time last season, the Raven's deployed more two tight-end sets to make up for the missing blocker. That could lead to extra opportunity for Josh Oliver and Nick Boyle on Sunday against the Dolphins, if Ricard is out and the Ravens take a similar approach.

  • Ravens' Patrick Ricard: Re-signs with Baltimore

    Ricard (knee) is signing a three-year contract with the Ravens, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Ricard was a two-way depth player for his first three NFL seasons, but with his role on offense increasing the past two years, he hasn't played any D-line snaps since 2019. He did play a career-high 555 snaps for Baltimore last season, making him the most heavily used fullback in the league. While surprisingly nimble for a 300-pounder, Ricard has never caught more than nine passes in a season and only has three career carries. His decision to stay with the Ravens is good news for the Baltimore rushing game, namely QB Lamar Jackson and RBs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee).
