Campanaro caught all four of his targets for 35 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Dolphins and also added one carry for 11 yards.
Campanaro was much more involved in the offense Thursday after making just one reception for 10 yards in the preseason opener. Furthermore, it was encouraging to see Campanaro get into the mix early in the game, which suggests that he could still be as high as the No.4 receiver in Baltimore. The Ravens also used Campanaro in the run game, resulting in an 11-yard pickup. Campanaro was effective as an end-around/jet sweep option last season with three carries for a whopping 72 yards, so he could be used in that capacity again once the regular season begins. He's also the front runner to be the Ravens' primary punt returner with Tim White (thumb) done for the season.
Campanaro (toe) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Garrett Downing of the team's official website reports.
Amid a string of awful injury luck to start camp for the Ravens, the team got a positive development Tuesday in the form of Campanaro's return. The shifty Wake Forest product had been sidelined for the early portion of camp with a nagging toe injury, but he was a full-go for Tuesday's session. According to Downing, Campanaro even mixed in with the first-team offense at different points of the practice. He still has a ways to go before challenging for a regular role in the Ravens' offense, but if Campanaro can stay healthy and on the field for the duration of the preseason, it'll go a long ways towards helping his cause.
Campanaro is yet to make his training camp debut due to a sprained toe suffered early in OTAs, but after passing his physical to start this week, he should be activated to take the field Tuesday. Once that happens, Campanaro will compete for a depth receiving role as well as Baltimore's primary punt return duties.
Campanaro (toe) passed his physical Monday.
Campanaro missed Baltimore's start of training camp due to a sprained toe suffered during OTAs, but upon passing his physical Monday, he should be back in practice before long. That comes as good news to a Ravens offense that's already endured its share of injuries thus far. Having played no more than four games in any of the past three seasons, however, Campanaro will need to remain healthy in order to have his presence felt.
Campanaro (toe) is close to returning, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Although Campanaro is opening training camp on the PUP list due to a sprained toe he suffered in OTAs, it doesn't sound as if it'll be much longer until he's able to join his team on the field. However, it isn't clear if he'll be fully ready in time for the first game of the preseason on Aug. 10 against the Redskins.
