Jerraud Powers: Announces intention to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers announced on Instagram that he intends to retire.

A 2009 third-round selection, Powers started 88 of his 100 career regular-season appearances, including six of his 13 games with the Ravens last season. He did miss three or more contests in six of his eight seasons, which likely contributed to his decision to retire at the age of 29. He dealt with a groin injury and a concussion last season, and he was often picked on by opposing quarterbacks. Currently an unrestricted free agent, Powers likely would draw some interest if he changed his mind about retirement, though he might have to settle for an opportunity to compete for the third or fourth spot on a depth chart.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Eagles.

Powers suffered a concussion in Monday's game against the Patriots but he was able to practice in a limited fashion all week. Tavon Young and Shareece Wright will likely start if Powers is held out.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Suffers concussion Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers suffered a concussion during Monday night's game against the Patriots and will not return.

Powers' injury followed Jimmy Smith leaving Monday's contest with an ankle problem. With both of them currently sidelined, the Ravens' cornerback options are increasingly thin, as Tavon Young and Shareece Wright are the only healthy players remaining.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Records second interception of 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers made five tackles (four solo) and picked off his second pass of the season in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

The former Cardinal played his best game as a Raven on Sunday . Not only did he record an interception, he played all 56 defensive snaps against the Dolphins. With Jimmy Smith back in the fold, Baltimore's cornerback rotation looks to be solidifying with him, Powers, and rookie Tavon Young all playing the vast majority of the snaps in the secondary. Powers will likely be busy again Monday when the Ravens take on the Patriots' explosive passing attack.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (groin) will play in Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Jets.

Powers practiced fully on Friday after missing some time during the week due to the groin injury he suffered in Week 6. He'll likely see an increased role with Shareece Wright (back) inactive for the game.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Uncertain for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (groin) is questionable to play Sunday against the Jets.

Powers was unable to return after exiting last week's game with a groin injury, but was a full participant in Friday's practice and seems in line to suit up.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup with the Giants due to a groin injury.

If Powers is forced to miss the remainder of the game, it will hurt the Ravens depth in the defensive backfield. Look for Will Davis or Marqueston Huff to see additional looks if Powers' injury forces him to sit the rest of the contest.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers was not listed on the Ravens' injury report on Wednesday, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Powers had been deactivated for the first two games of the season while nursing an ankle injury. He now appears in line to make his 2016 debut Sunday against the Jaguars.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers is listed as inactive for Week 2's matchup against the Browns.

Powers was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday, but it doesn't appear he's quite ready to make his season debut just yet. In his absence, look for Tavon Young to see extra snaps, particularly in nickel packages.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Questionable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (ankle) is questionable for the Ravens' Week 2 tilt against the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Though he's officially listed as questionable it would be surprising if Powers didn't play on Sunday after he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. In the event he's held out, look for Tavon Young to see an increase in snaps.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Full participant in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

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.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Out for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (ankle) will miss Sunday's game against the Bills.

Powers originally had the inside track for the starting slot corner role in Baltimore defense, but has since been hindered by health issues. The slot corner will now likely be occupied by Tavon Young, and there are no real assurances that Powers will have a chance to gain the position back, especially if Young does a sufficient job in the slot.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Powers is expected to open the season as Baltimore's nickelback, but he could face immediate pressure from Will Davis and rookie Tavon Young. A Week 1 absence might allow one of the aforementioned players to seize the job for good.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Passes conditioning test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers has passed his conditioning test and is cleared to practice, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

Powers missed the Ravens' first two full practices after failing the conditioning test at the commencement of camp. Now able to take the field, Powers is in competition with Tavon Young for the nickelback role in DC Dean Pees' 3-4 scheme.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Doesn't pass conditioning test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers didn't pass a conditioning test Thursday and won't be able to practice until he does so, Jamison Hensley of reports.

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.

Ravens' Jerraud Powers: Has inside track for slot role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers has the inside track for the slot corner role, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Powers impressed teammates during OTAs and minicamp, reportedly showing a knack for interceptions, of which he has just 11 in 87 career regular season games (82 starts). Although he was known as the weak link in Arizona's secondary the past few years, Powers should actually represent an upgrade for a Baltimore team that has struggled with poor cornerback play for the last half decade. Though he only signed a one-year contract, Powers could even push Shareece Wright for a starting job on the outside across from Jimmy Smith (foot). In such a scenario, Powers might still shift inside in nickel and dime packages, which could make him an interesting IDP option in leagues that use specific positions. It's still speculative at this point, as Wright will enter training camp as the favorite to start.

Jerraud Powers: Expected to join Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Ravens,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Powers struggled with injuries to start his career, but kept a relatively clean bill of health in Arizona the past three seasons, emerging as the Cardinals' starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson along the way. Although the Cardinals opted not to re-sign him this offseason, the 28-year-old Powers lands in Baltimore to solidify the Ravens' depth chart at cornerback, where Jimmy Smith embodies the team's clear-cut No. 1 option. In 13 games last season, Powers posted 52 tackles, two fumble recoveries, one interception, one sack and one defensive touchdown.

Cardinals' Jerraud Powers: Unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powers enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Upon entering the NFL in 2009, Powers dealt with an array of ailments and played in just 42 of a possible 64 games during his time with the Colts. After landing in Arizona during the 2013 offseason, he turned in back-to-back complete campaigns, but the injury bug reared its head this past season as he took on the starting cornerback spot opposite Patrick Peterson. In 13 games, though, he posted 52 tackles (46 solo), two fumble recoveries, one interception, one sack, and one defensive touchdown. With an able candidate to replace him on the Cardinals in Justin Bethel, the 28-year-old Powers may land elsewhere as a free agent, though a starting gig would likely still be on the table.
