Breeland (knee) reverted to the Ravens' non-football injury list Thursday, Aaron Kasinitz of PennLive.com reports.
The undrafted rookie tight end passed through waivers without being claimed, so he will remain with the Ravens for the year but will be unable to play. While playing his senior season at Oregon last season, Breeland suffered a torn ACL, which he is still working his way back from. In six games before his injury last season, the tight end recorded 26 receptions for 405 yards and six touchdowns.
The Ravens waived Breeland (knee) with a non-football injury designation Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Breeland is still working to recover from the ACL tear he suffered during his final season at Oregon. The Ravens previously suggested that Breeland is a part of their plans for the future, so the team is evidently betting that he'll clear waivers and revert to the NFI list.
Breeland (knee) is expected to be waived/injured by the Ravens, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Such a move is the precursor to reverting to injured reserve. If that happens, Breeland will be stashed for the season as he continues to recover from a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee, which he sustained last October.
Breeland (knee) isn't expected to play this year, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Coach John Harbaugh hinted at Breeland earning a roster spot, but it now seems an IR spot is more likely. The undrafted rookie suffered a torn ACL and meniscus last October, finishing his senior season at Oregon with a 26-405-6 receiving line in six games. The Ravens have placed Breeland on the non-football injury list, leaving Eli Wolf and Charles Scarff as the available tight ends behind starters Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle.
The Ravens have placed Breeland (Knee, ACL) on the active/non-football injury list.
Breeland had his final season at Oregon cut short after suffering a torn ACL and meniscus last October. He ultimately went undrafted in April but subsequently signed as a free agent with the Ravens. Coach John Harbaugh already has indicated that he expects the rookie to make the regular-season roster, but it remains to be seen when he'll be healthy enough to take the field.
Coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that he expects one of Breeland (knee) and Eli Wolf to make the regular-season roster, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Breeland and Wolf both joined Baltimore as undrafted free agents, so neither will have the benefit of draft capital to propel them toward a roster spot. However, Breeland is recovering from a torn ACL and meniscus sustained in October, which prevented him from participating in the NFL Combine. If the Oregon product is still limited when training camp begins, he could have difficulty competing for a lone roster spot with Wolf.
