Judon (illness) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round matchup in Buffalo, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Judon missed Baltimore's first two practices of the week, but he was a full participant in Thursday's session. The fifth-year linebacker looks set to handle his usual starting role as the Ravens work to contain Josh Allen and the Bills.
Judon (illness) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
There is no indication at this time that Judon's illness is related to COVID-19. The fifth-year linebacker spent 10 days on the reserve/COVID-19 list back in December. If Judon is unavailable for the AFC divisional round against the Bills, Tyus Bowser likely will bump into a starting role.
Judon was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and will be available for Monday's game against the Browns, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Judon has been unavailable since being added to the list Nov. 29, but he'll be ready to return for the pivotal clash between AFC North foes. He'll have the opportunity to get a week of practice under his belt by Monday and should be able to play without limitations.
Judon (ankle) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will not be active for Tuesday's matchup against the Cowboys, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Judon was added to the reserve list Nov. 29 and made unavailable for last Wednesday's 19-14 loss to the Steelers, marking the 28-year-old's first missed game of 2020. The reigning Pro Bowler has recorded four sacks, 34 tackles and two pass deflections over 10 starts this season, but a second straight absence inserts Tyus Bowser into a No. 1 role at outside linebacker.
Baltimore will place Judon (ankle) on the reserve/COVID-19 list after he tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Tight end Mark Andrews (thigh) was also added to the list Sunday, as he and Judon became the 10th and 11th Ravens players to test positive for COVID-19. Both players will miss Tuesday's game against the Steelers, and at this point, the two should be considered unlikely to be activated prior to the Ravens' Week 13 matchup with the Cowboys on Dec. 7. The star edge rusher has tallied 35 tackles and four sacks through the Ravens' first 10 games.
Judon (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Steelers, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Judon gets an extra few days to recover because the game was moved to Tuesday. The fifth-year linebacker has been useful for fantasy purposes over the past three weeks, recording 17 tackles, two sacks and a pass breakup. If he's unable to play this week, Tyus Bowser is expected to start at outside linebacker.
Judon (calf) is active for Sunday's game in New England.
Baltimore will benefit from the availability of the 28-year-old outside linebacker, who initially sported a questionable tag for Sunday's contest. Judon hasn't notched a sack since Week 4, but he did manage to accumulate a season-high seven tackles against the Colts last week.
Judon (calf) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
Judon's still questionable, but the Ravens will officially make him active 90 minutes before the 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. The 28-year-old is slated to start at outside linebacker, and he'll look to build off the season-high seven tackles he posted last week against the Colts.
Judon (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.
After starting the practice week on the sidelines, Judon made progress every day and was a full participant Friday. Barring a setback, he should be good to go for Sunday night's game, and he's expected to start at outside linebacker if that's the case. Judon recorded a season-high seven tackles last week against the Colts, adding his second pass breakup of the year.
Judon (calf) was held to limited participation during the Ravens' practice session Thursday.
Judon abruptly appeared on the team's injury report Wednesday, and he was deemed entirely unable to participate in group drills. Improvement to a partial workload Thursday moves the needle in a positive direction regarding his Week 10 status, plus Judon is afforded slightly extra time to recover with Baltimore's matchup against New England not taking place until Sunday night. The reigning Pro Bowler has started every game for the Ravens thus far in 2020, registering 25 tackles, two sacks and 13 QB hits.
Judon (calf) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.
This appears to be a new injury for Judon, casting doubt onto his status for this week's game against the Patriots. The next two days of practice will be critical for his chances to suit up. Tyus Bowser likely would start at outside linebacker if Judon was ruled out.
Judon registered seven tackles (five solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Colts.
Judon handled a season-high 78 percent snap share and came through with a season high in tackles as well. The fifth-year linebacker has now produced 25 stops through eight games, but his ceiling has taken a hit this year with just two sacks (he recorded 9.5 in 2019).
Judon was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and logged a full practice.
Judon was placed on the list Tuesday as he was considered high risk due to close contact with Marlon Humphrey, who tested positive Monday. It appears Judon has tested negative enough times to return to the team and suit up in Sunday's game against the Colts. The veteran will handle his usual starting role at one of the outside linebacker positions for Week 9 now that he's been officially cleared.
Judon was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Judon is considered a high-risk close contact to Marlon Humphrey, who tested positive for the virus Monday, and he'll need to isolate for five days. If Judon tests negative through Saturday, he'll be eligible to play in Sunday's road game versus the Colts. Patrick Queen, L.J. Fort, Malik Harrison and Tyus Bowser also landed on the list, so the Ravens will need to call up practice squad players if anyone is forced to miss time.
Judon has been ejected from Sunday's matchup against the Steelers for contacting an official, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.
Judon's contact was not malicious by any means, as he was seemingly trying to free his arm from an opposing player's grasp when he bumped the referee. The officiating crew deemed the act significant enough to merit ejection, however, removing a formidable pass rusher from Baltimore's front seven. Judon has recorded eight QB hits and two sacks over his past three appearances, but the Ravens will have to proceed without him for the remainder of Sunday's contest.
Judon finished with four tackles (two solo), two sacks, and two tackles for loss Sunday against Washington.
Judon registered his first two sacks of the 2020 campaign. He tallied 9.5 sacks a season ago, so while he was off to a slow start entering Week 4, he's right back on track following an impressive week despite playing in just 59 percent of his squad's defensive snaps (42).
Judon will play out 2020 under the franchise tag, Childs Walker of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Judon and the Ravens failed to work out a long-term extension before Wednesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. The outside linebacker is scheduled for a $16.8 million salary in 2020 as he looks to build upon last year's career highs for sacks (9.5) and QB hits (33). Judon played 81 percent of Baltimore's defensive snaps as a 16-game starter in 2019, and he should see a similar workload in 2020.
Judon doesn't mind the franchise tag, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. "I'm pleased to be tagged," Judon said "I feel like only a few players get to go through this in their lifetime. As much as I want stability in the future, I'm proud of where I'm at and where I came from."
Judon signed the franchise tender in late May, ending any speculation about a potential holdout. He presumably prefers to sign a long-term contract before the July 15 deadline, but it doesn't sound like he's in any rush to agree to a team-friendly deal. The 2016 fifth-round pick is scheduled to make $16.8 million under the franchise tag, following a 2019 campaign with career highs for sacks (9.5), QB hits (33) and forced fumbles (four). The raw numbers were impressive, but PFF charted Judon with an NFL-high 56 percent of his pressures coming on plays where he was either unblocked or "cleaning up" for another pass rusher. He appears to have benefited considerably from playing in a blitz-happy defense with an excellent secondary.
Judon signed his franchise tag Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Judon's decision to sign the franchise tag suggests that he won't opt for a holdout even if the Ravens don't sign him to a long-term deal prior to the July 15 deadline. As such, Judon will carry a sizable $16.3 million contract for the 2020 campaign. The pass rusher is coming off a solid 2019 season in which he notched multiple career-high marks, including 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and 33 QB hits, to go with a solid 54 total tackles through 16 games.
The Ravens gave Judon a franchise tag Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
The move has long been expected, with Judon the lone reasonable choice to receive Baltimore's tag this offseason. It's less clear if he'll sign a long-term deal, play on the tag or get traded, as reports from February hinted at friction between the two parties. Judon is coming off a 2019 campaign with career highs for sacks (9.5), QB hits (33) and forced fumbles (four), but the Ravens believe some of his production was the result of a blitz-happy scheme and excellent play from their cornerbacks. While the argument undoubtedly has legitimacy, Judon's agent will be sure to mention that the 27-year-old accounted for 25.7 percent of the team's sacks and 29.7 percent of the QB hits, i.e., he was the only Baltimore pass rusher that actually parlayed the favorable conditions into production.
