Campanaro (toe) will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
Campanaro is still dealing with a toe injury that he's suffered from since May, and while the expectation was that the wideout would be ready in time for camp, he'll still need some extra time to rehab.
Campanaro (toe) is expected to be ready for training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Campanaro hasn't been practicing due to a sprained toe, but according to head coach John Harbaugh, the injury shouldn't be a long term issue. With the new addition of Jeremy Maclin, Campanaro will likely be bumped down to the No. 4 spot on the depth chart but that is subsequent to change based on training camp performances.
Campanaro didn't practice Thursday due to a sprained toe, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Campanaro's toe issue was described as a "nuisance" by coach John Harbaugh, so the injury shouldn't keep the receiver sidelined for much longer. He'll be attempting to secure a role as the Ravens' slot receiver upon his return.
The Ravens had placed an original-round tender on Campanaro earlier in the offseason before agreeing to terms on a new deal that is worth upwards of $2 million. With the Ravens' current roster construction, the only receivers locked into starting roles are Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman, which opens the door for Campanaro to seize the primary slot role. Campanaro, when healthy, has shown excellent lateral agility and straight line speed in the open field. He had three offensive touches out of the backfield last season totaling 72 yards, all of which went for 10-or-more yards. There's still a chance that the Ravens will address receiver early in the draft, but Campanaro's new deal suggests that the team does have a role in mind for the Wake Forest product. Campanaro also offers some utility in the return game.
By placing the original-round tender on Campanaro, the Ravens will receive a compensatory draft pick should he be signed to an offer sheet elsewhere. With that, the Ravens would get a seventh-round selection if Campanaro leaves. Campanaro is a shifty and athletic fourth-year player who has primarily shown promise in the return game, but his contributions as a receiver have been minimal to this point in his career. Whether he stays in Baltimore or signs with another club, Campanaro's ceiling would likely be as a returner and No. 4 wide receiver.
