Marshal Yanda: Announcing retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda is retiring from football.

The 35-year-old right guard wraps up his NFL career with eight Pro Bowl appearances, two First Team All-Pro honors (2014-15) and one Super Bowl ring (2012), having started 166 regular-season games and 14 playoff contests. The Baltimore offense now looks a bit shaky on the interior, though Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown will give the O-line stability at the tackle spots. Yanda has a solid case for the Hall of Fame, potentially getting a boost from his consistently excellent Pro Football Focus grades, along with his role on a 2019 Ravens squad that broke the NFL record for rushing yards in a season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda said following Saturday's loss to the Titans that he will take his time determining if he'll play next season, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Yanda heads into the offseason as a free agent and has been with the Ravens since he was drafted by the team in 2007. Many of his teammates believe that Saturday was the veteran's final game, however, it will be on Yanda's time to provide a definitive update on his future in the NFL.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Yanda was named to his eighth Pro Bowl in nine seasons this year. Since the Ravens have locked up the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC, Yanda will take a week of rest. Either James Hurst or Patrick Mekari will start at right guard in Yanda's place.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: To miss remainder of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda will be sidelined for the remainder of the preseason due to a foot injury, Jeff Zrebiec of the Athletic reports.

The Ravens plan to rest their offensive guard until Week 1 of the regular season as Yanda nurses a foot injury, to which the level of severity is relatively unknown. Yanda's absence will likely allow for Darrell and Isaiah Williams to compete for snaps alongside the first-team offense in the meantime.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Yanda is now under Ravens control through 2020 and will no longer be the subject of retirement rumors. His continued presence in Baltimore should prove beneficial for the prospects of Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: Expected to play in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda may be contemplating retirement, but the Ravens expect him to play at least one more season, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Yanda bounced back from a season-ending ankle injury in 2017 to regain his place as one of the league's elite guards in 2018. He'll turn 35 in September and is now entering the final season of a four-year contract, but there doesn't seem to be discussion about an extension. Yanda has consistently been the best player on Baltimore's offensive line for the past decade.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: To return to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda (shoulder) will return to practice on Monday.

Yanda was placed on the PUP list while he continued to recover from shoulder surgery, but he will officially be coming off it Monday and immediately be back on the practice field. According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, Yanda is expected to start with taking part in individual drills, but he will not play in the team's second preseason game against the Rams.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: Recovering from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda is recovering from shoulder surgery, but the offensive lineman is expected to be ready for the regular season, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. "We're going to be cautious with him," coach John Harbaugh said.

When Yanda was placed on the Ravens' physically unable to perform list last week, most assumed he was still recovering from the broken ankle he suffered early last season. However, Hensley claims that Yanda's ankle is now healed, and it's now clear that there's a different culprit for Yanda's inactivity. While it isn't clear if the offensive guard will participate in training camp at any point, Yanda should be in the starting lineup when Baltimore squares off with Buffalo in the team's regular-season opener.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: To open training camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda (ankle) will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

Yanda is bouncing back from a fractured ankle that placed him on injured reserve last September. Head coach John Harbaugh said in January that he expected the veteran right guard to be available for the start of training camp, but it appears Yanda still has rehab work to do. In any case, the Ravens have little incentive to rush the 33-year-old back into action, and there doesn't seem to be much concern over Yanda's availability for Week 1 against Buffalo.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: Expected back for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that he expects Yanda (ankle) to be healthy in time for training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Yanda sustained a season-ending broken ankle in the Week 2 win over the Browns and has spent the last few months rehabbing. It appears that he won't be fully healed by the time Organized Team Activities begin in the spring, but Yanda shouldn't face any significant limitations by the time camp begins. The return of the six-time Pro Bowler should provide a big upgrade to the Baltimore offensive line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda is out for the season with an ankle injury.

Yanda will likely be sent to IR as he begins his recovery for next season. It's a huge loss for the Baltimore offense, as Yanda is one of the best guards in the league, while the rest of the team's interior line is shaky.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda is questionable to return Sunday against the Browns due to an ankle injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: Back in action at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda (shoulder) has been an active participant at the Ravens' training camp through the first two days.

Yanda underwent shoulder surgery after he went down in Week 13 of last season. The veteran linemen missed the entirety of the team's offseason schedule while recovering, but he's returned for the start of training camp as expected. Look for the Ravens to ease the 32-year-old back into the swing of things in order to ensure his health heading into Week 1.

Ravens' Marshal Yanda: Status remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda (shoulder) has yet to practice with the team this offseason, and his status heading into training camp remains uncertain, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Yanda does not appear too worried about his status following shoulder surgery, as he stated "I will be out there for sure" regarding Week 1. The team is likely exercising caution with the veteran guard in order to ensure his health heading into the season. Entering his 11th year in the league, Yanda presumably has less need for offseason training activities than his younger counterparts. Barring any setbacks, he's likely on track to enter Week 1 healthy.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yanda played through the shoulder ailment for most of the season but did opt out of the Pro Bowl because of the injury. The veteran switched to left guard last season because of the injury, as he felt he could play more effectively on the left side of the line. "He'll be ready for training camp -- 100 percent," head coach John Harbaugh said of Yanda's status. Look for more updates to come at that point of the offseason.
