Zachary Orr: Will not come out of retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orr (neck) announced in The Players' Tribune on Friday that he will not come out of retirement.

After Orr announced his retirement in January of 2017 due to a congenital neck/spine condition, he explored the possibility of returning to the football field earlier this summer. Ultimately, he decided that it was not worth the risk, and he will stay away from football. Orr had a breakout 2016 season in which he recorded 132 tackles, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries.

Zachary Orr: Exploring possibility of continuing career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orr (neck) said he is exploring the possibility of coming out of retirement,'s Mike Garafolo reports.

Orr announced his retirement in January after doctors told him he has a congenital spinal condition which makes him much more vulnerable to major head/neck injuries. He accepted the news at first, but he's since sought out second opinions, with several doctors telling him there is no evidence he's at any more risk than a player with a fully formed spine. If he does decide to play, the 25-year-old linebacker would be an unrestricted free agent, as he was previously set to be a restricted free agent and the Ravens didn't place him on their reserve/retired list. Orr arguably would be the top player still available on the open market, coming off a breakout 2016 season in which he had 132 tackles, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 15 games. The Ravens could still use help at inside linebacker, but Orr might be out of their price range after the team signed Jeremy Maclin.

Ravens' Zachary Orr: Set to retire
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Orr (neck) announced he is retiring from the NFL due to a congenital neck/spine condition.

Devastating news for the Ravens, as Orr was one of the best up-and-coming linebackers in the league, leading the team in tackles this season. Before suffering the neck injury in Week 16, the linebacker had tallied 133 tackles, five pass deflections, three interceptions, and one forced fumble on the year. His sudden retirement leaves the Ravens with a massive hole in their linebacking corps that they may look to fill through either the draft or free agency this offseason. In three seasons in the league, Orr recorded 163 tackles, one sack, six pass deflections, three interceptions, and one forced fumble through 46 games.

Ravens' Zachary Orr: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orr (neck) was placed on injured reserve Friday, The Baltimore Sun reports.

This is an unfortunate ending to a fantastic season for Orr. It isn't clear when he got injured, but his impending absence in Sunday's game against the Bengals opens up the door for both Albert McClellan and Patrick Onwuasor to see additional playing time.

Ravens' Zachary Orr: Does not practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orr (neck) did not practice Thursday, Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Thursday marked Orr's second consecutive absence from practice as he continues to battle a neck injury. Lee notes that Orr's absence Thursday makes it look increasingly likely that the Ravens will be without him for Sunday's season finale, especially considering that Baltimore is already eliminated from playoff contention. Orr has been one of the more pleasant IDP surprises among linebackers this season, racking up 132 tackles to tie him with Alec Ogletree for sixth in the NFL in that category. If he ultimately sits out Sunday, Albert McClellan or Patrick Onwuasor would likely take over in his place next to C.J. Mosley.
