Canady has missed the first six weeks of the season while recovering from the knee issue, but he'll be an option to return from injured reserve within the next 21 days if he proves fully healthy. If Canady does ultimately rejoin the 53-man roster, he'll likely be ticketed for a special teams role.
Canady (knee) is a candidate to be one of Baltimore's two returnees from injured reserve later in the season, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The second-year cornerback suffered a knee injury during training camp that required surgery, but under the league's new policy, Canady could be activated following Week 8 if he progresses as quickly as the Ravens hope. Canady could theoretically begin practicing after Week 6, at which point the Ravens should get a better assessment of his health.
Canady will not be eligible to practice for six weeks or return to the active roster for eight. He projected to be the Ravens' slot cornerback before going down with a knee injury. Although he underwent surgery, it was not considered a season-ending deal.
Canady played just four games in 2016 before being placed on the IR, and will have an even more premature shutdown this season. He had a knee procedure done at the beginning of camp, but was still hopeful he would not need to miss the entire season.
Canady (knee) had a knee procedure, but isn't expected to miss the entire season.
Canady played four games in 2016 before being placed on injured reserve with a thigh injury. He recorded two tackles on special teams, but didn't record a snap on defense. After cornerback Tavon Young tore his ACL, Canady was in the running for a starting nickleback position. The injury status was vague, yet as with any knee surgery, expect some missed time.
