Ravens' Maurice Canady: Returns to practice
Canady (thigh) resumed practicing Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
Canady remains on injured reserve, so he won't appear on Baltimore's practice reports. The Ravens now have a 21-day window to decide on Canady's eligibility for the rest of the season and will need to decide whether to keep him on IR or activate him to the 53-man roster. If Canady does return, expect him to play a depth role in Baltimore's secondary.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Robert Griffin: Could be discussed for Week 11 start
Griffin and Lamar Jackson will both be candidates to start if Joe Flacco (hip) isn't available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
It's never quite been clear whether Griffin or Jackson is the No. 2 quarterback, as the decision to keep the rookie active for games is dictated by his role as a rushing threat in certain packages. Jackson would obviously be the far more interesting choice, but it isn't out of the question that the Ravens could go with Griffin if they believe he's clearly superior as a passer. Flacco appears truly questionable for Week 11.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Lamar Jackson: No lock for start if Flacco sits
Jackson and Robert Griffin will both be candidates to start if Joe Flacco (hip) isn't available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
The Ravens aren't quite ready to evaluate Jackson at the expense of their prospects for making a playoff push, though it isn't clear Flacco (or Griffin) gives them a better chance to win. The hip injury is serious enough to threaten Flacco's availability coming out of a Week 10 bye, setting up an interesting week in Baltimore ahead of a crucial game against a fellow AFC wild-card contender. Whichever quarterback ends up starting will take aim at a slumping Bengals team that fired Teryl Austin from the defensive coordinator position Monday.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Joe Flacco: Will start Sunday if healthy
Flacco (hip) is still getting treatment and will start Sunday's game against the Bengals if he is healthy enough to play, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Coach John Harbaugh essentially shut down rumors about the Ravens using Flacco's hip injury as a convenient excuse to take a look at Lamar Jackson. It appears the 33-year-old truly is dealing with a considerable injury -- one serious enough to warrant the use of crutches over the weekend. There was also a report last week about surgery being an option, but it now seems the Ravens are taking a day-by-day approach with optimism the hip injury will heal on its own. As if the situation weren't tricky enough, Harbaugh said Jackson and Robert Griffin are both candidates to get the Week 11 start if Flacco can't play, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.... See More ...

Ravens' Joe Flacco: Viewed as day-to-day
Flacco was recently spotted in the Baltimore area using crutches while he contends with a hip injury, but the Ravens view him as day-to-day rather than week-to-week heading into their next game Nov. 18 against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Rapoport adds that there's a good chance Flacco will be available to play against Cincinnati if he takes part in practice following the team's Week 10 bye, but the Ravens remain unsure if the quarterback is ready to resume even light on-field work. More clarity on Flacco's outlook should come forth by the middle of the week, but regardless of which direction the signal-caller's health is trending, Baltimore will almost certainly prepare rookie Lamar Jackson for a possible starting assignment by getting him more reps with the first-team offense in practice. Even if Flacco gains clearance to play by next weekend, there's a decent chance Jackson takes on an enhanced role on offense if the hip injury further limits Flacco's already below-average mobility....

Ravens' Lamar Jackson: May take starting job
Jackson may take over the starting job for Week 11 against Cincinnati while fellow quarterback Joe Flacco recovers from a hip injury, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
Flacco is still in the process of seeking medical opinions, but his injury reportedly is serious enough to warrant some discussion of surgery or prolonged rest. The Ravens may want to use it as a convenient excuse for a quarterback change even if Flacco isn't in too much pain, as the team heads into a Week 10 bye at 4-5 after three consecutive losses. Selected at No. 32 overall in this year's draft, Jackson offers enough upside as a rushing threat to warrant ownership in all two-QB fantasy leagues and also some single-QB formats. It's anyone's guess what he'll offer as a passer, but there's no questioning his rare combination of size, speed and running instincts. A switch from Flacco to Jackson would probably be good news for Alex Collins and bad news for all the Baltimore pass catchers, with the team likely shifting its focus more toward the running game. Jackson's presence in the backfield might help open up lanes for Collins, whereas the current Baltimore offense has featured 42.1 pass attempts per game from Flacco while producing just 3.6 yards per carry....

Ravens' Joe Flacco: Could miss time with hip injury
Flacco is seeking medical opinions for a hip injury, with surgery and prolonged rest considered two of the options for treatment, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
The third option is to simply play through the injury, but La Canfora believes that's the least likely of the choices. It means Lamar Jackson could be under center after a Week 10 bye when the Ravens host the Bengals on Nov. 18. There were already rumblings about a transition before the hip injury was reported, with Jackson viewed as the franchise quarterback of the future and Baltimore mired in a three-game losing streak. Given his upside as a rushing threat, Jackson should now be owned in all two-QB formats as well as many single-QB leagues.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Matt Judon: Brings down quarterback Sunday
Judon posted five tackles and a sack during Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers.
A week after totaling a season-high 10 tackles, Judon followed that with his second-highest tackle total of the year. He also brought down Ben Roethlisberger and now has 2.5 sacks on the year. The 26-year-old linebacker will look to keep up his hot streak against the Bengals after the Ravens return from their upcoming bye week.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Joe Flacco: Still has starting job
Coach John Harbaugh suggested Flacco will continue to start at quarterback after a Week 10 bye, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Flacco had been enjoying one of his better seasons prior to his struggles the past two weeks in losses to Carolina and Pittsburgh. The Ravens aren't quite ready to make the switch to Lamar Jackson, but they could reassess if they fall out of the wild-card race in the AFC. A home loss to Cincinnati in Week 11 would put the team in an awfully tough position.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: May be in trouble with league
Coach John Harbaugh dropped a hint that Dixon (knee) may be in danger of facing league discipline again, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Harbaugh said the Ravens need clearance from the NFL before they can bring Dixon back on the practice field, suggesting there's something at play besides the knee injury that landed the running back on injured reserve after Week 1. Dixon will be eligible to return after a Week 10 bye, but it doesn't seem the Ravens are counting on much -- especially not after they traded for Ty Montgomery.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Still viewed as QB in long run
Coach John Harbaugh suggested he isn't yet thinking about starting Jackson over Joe Flacco, though Harbaugh did say he still views the rookie as a quarterback in the long run, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson got some snaps at quarterback in the second half of blowouts Weeks 1 and 8, but he's otherwise been used as a gadget player with Flacco on the field at the same time. A three-game losing streak has led to some rumbling as the Ravens enter a bye week, perhaps speeding up the timeline for Jackson to get a real look under center. That being said, the Ravens don't seem ready for such a drastic change, as Flacco is still on track for his best season since 2014. It would be hard to make an argument against starting Jackson if the team eventually falls out of the playoff race -- something that could essentially happen as soon as Week 11 with a loss to the Bengals....

Ravens' C.J. Mosley: Seven tackles against Steelers
Mosley had seven tackles and a pass defensed Sunday against the Steelers.
A thigh injury left Mosley questionable coming into Sunday's game but the Ravens' most important defensive player was indeed on the field. He had seven tackles, his lowest since Week 6 against Tennessee, but it was a relatively productive day from Mosley overall. Mosley and the Ravens are on a bye for Week 10 before starting the stretch run with a home game against the Bengals in Week 11.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Justin Tucker: Converts all three field goals against Steelers
Tucker converted all three of his field goal attempts and converted his lone extra point attempt Sunday against the Steelers.
Tucker was perfect on the day, converting two 23-yard field goals and a 37-yarder. He is tied for seventh in the league with 16 made field goals through nine weeks and his 88.9 conversion rate ranks 12th in the league. Tucker is on a bye before returning to action Nov. 18 against the Bengals.... See More ... See Less
