Meniscus repair surgery typically comes with a timeline of 4-5 months, which might seem to give Dixon a shot at returning for the final few weeks of the season. Rather than rushing him back with the hope he can make some kind of slight late-season contribution, the Ravens want Dixon to focus on coming back at full strength for 2018. Terrance West and Danny Woodhead no longer have serious competition for their respective roles as the lead ball carrier and top pass-catching back, with Javorius Allen, Bobby Rainey and Taquan Mizzell likely resigned to competing for the No. 3 job.
Mosley started 14 games last season before going down with a shoulder injury. He subsequently had surgery to fix the issue, missing the team's entire offseason schedule as a result. His participation at practice indicates his recovery is on track, as the original plan was for him to be ready for the start of training camp. The 25-year-old is entering his fourth season as the team's starting inside linebacker, and he figures to have plenty of opportunity to shine.
Canady played four games in 2016 before being placed on injured reserve with a thigh injury. He recorded two tackles on special teams, but didn't record a snap on defense. After cornerback Tavon Young tore his ACL, Canady was in the running for a starting nickelback position. The injury status was vague, yet as with any knee surgery, expect some missed time.
With the Ravens' offensive line plagued with both injuries and inexperience, the team looked to veteran center Jeremy Zuttah, who was recently released by the 49ers after being traded from Baltimore last March. Zuttah brings experience and familiarity to the Ravens' offensive unit.
Waller was suspended for the first four games of last season for his initial violation, and now he faces a year out of the league for his latest. The 24-year-old will be allowed to participate in preseason practices and games, but his punishment will begin once the regular season does. A sixth-round pick in 2015, Waller caught 10 passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns last season. His absence -- which follows Dennis Pitta's most recent hip injury and subsequent release -- figures to allow Nick Boyle to see more action behind Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams at tight end in the buildup to this season.
Bouncing back from a major knee surgery that's a first for an NFL player, Williams was ready for the start of training camp but apparently has failed to impress. While Nick Boyle and Ben Watson appeared to handle most of the first-team work in Thursday's game, Williams did catch an eight-yard pass from Ryan Mallett shortly before halftime, and then added an impressive 40-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter. The 2015 second-round pick doesn't figure to open the season with a major role, but he could push for some playing time on passing downs.
The well-traveled Lewis, who has had stints with seven other teams in seven NFL seasons, will find a new home in Baltimore after spending the 2016 campaign in San Francisco. He'll join the training-camp roster in place of fellow quarterback Dustin Vaughan, who was waived in a corresponding move. Lewis will provide the Ravens with some more experienced depth behind injured starter Joe Flacco (back) during camp, but Lewis seems unlikely to win a 53-man roster spot if both Flacco and top backup Ryan Mallett are both fully healthy by the time Week 1 arrives.
Mink makes an important distinction in the article, noting that several of Adeboyejo's long receptions were coming against veterans and expected starters like Brandon Carr and Lardarius Webb. Adeboyejo has some intriguing traits, most notably the fact that he turned in a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at the Combine, a mark made even more impressive considering his size (6-foot-3, 197 pounds). There's still a long way to go before the Ravens' wide-receiver depth chart is settled, but Adeboyejo will be a player to watch in Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins.
Price had been sidelined the previous seven practices with an undisclosed issue. The 26-year-old played in for games with the team last season before being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Assuming he makes the final roster, he currently projects to provide depth at corner back heading into Week 1.
16 of Mizzell's 38 yards came on one run, meaning that his other nine carries only went for a total of 22 yards. Still, the fact that Mizzell got double digit carries for a second consecutive week shows that the Ravens are intent on seeing what they have in the rookie out of Virginia. Mizzell also showed his ability as a pass catcher by nabbing both of his targets for 24 yards. Pass catching was Mizzell's calling card at UVA, where he caught 127 passes over his final two seasons. Mizzell remains a long shot to make the final roster, but he's making a better case than the likes of Lorenzo Taliaferro through two preseason games.
Clark (6-feet, 208 pounds) showed only modest athleticism at the Combine (4.54-second 40, 6.85-second three-cone), but he's an experienced player who was a very productive run stopper at Virginia Tech. He probably profiles as a strong safety in the NFL.
The Ravens still jumped out to a 13-0 lead at halftime, thanks to a dominant performance from their own defense combined with some untimely penalties by the opposing defense. Mallett's poor showing will only add to the whispers that Baltimore is interested in acquiring a better backup, even though the team hopes Joe Flacco (back) will be ready at some point this preseason.
It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
The veteran tight end saw his first game action in nearly a year after suffering a torn Achilles against the Lions last preseason. Watson only played sparingly Thursday, as did most of Baltimore's veteran first-stringers, but he made the most of his lone opportunity with an impressive grab over the middle to pick up 11 yards. Look for Watson to see more snaps in Baltimore's third preseason game as he looks to solidify his role as the Ravens' top pass catching tight end.
Donnell joins the multitude of injured Ravens tight ends, though his injury isn't as serious as his peers'. He reportedly made a diving catch Thursday and landed on the ball with his fingers underneath it. Though it isn't expected to be a long-term ailment, he could miss some time. Look for Nick Boyle and Vince Mayle to see some added reps in practice as the only healthy backups behind apparent-starter Ben Watson.
Jefferson started 14 games for the Ravens last season, and projects to be the starting strong safety come Week 1. He underwent hernia surgery in the latter portion of June, so the team has been hesitant to afford him a full workload. The 25-year-old saw nine snaps in the contest.
Smith didn't practice at all throughout the past week, which could mean he's closer to doubtful than questionable to play, though as a depth player the team may activate him and limit his snaps. If he's held out look for Matt Judon to see some extra reps.
The exact location and severity of the injury remain unclear, but the Ravens are set to cut ties with the converted wide receiver rather than keeping him rostered on injured reserve. He'll be free to sign with any team once he's at full strength and able to pass a physical, although that may not be until the start of the 2018 season.
Levine was questionable to play after being limited by a nagging toe injury all week in practice. He projects to serve in a special-teams role Sunday.
Porter, an undrafted cornerback out of Utah, started 22 games during his three seasons in college, finishing with 18 pass break-ups and two interceptions. He'll likely need to impress on special teams in order to make the final roster.
The former Navy quarterback struggled to pick up on the nuances of his new positions last summer, but Zrebiec notes that he looked faster, smoother, and more confident overall last week. He showed improved hands in the passing game and had a more natural feel in the return game as well. With Baltimore's recent addition of Jeremy Maclin, an already crowded receiving group got even more jam-packed. With that, Reynolds will likely need to shine on special teams in order to break camp with the active roster.
It has already been determined that Flacco won't see the field in any of Baltimore's preseason games, but the expectation has been that he'd begin practicing at some point to remain on track for the season opener. While Flacco still may be good to go for Week 1, Harbaugh's comments Thursday suggest that his back is still preventing him from getting back on the practice field. With that, Ryan Mallett figures to continue seeing the bulk of the practice reps with the first-team offense.
Considering he still hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring Aug. 1, the third-year receiver essentially can be ruled out for Thursday's preseason game in Miami. The Ravens don't have much incentive to rush Perriman back into action, as he doesn't seem to have any real competition for the No. 3 receiver role. There was some thought he might push Mike Wallace and/or Jeremy Maclin for playing time in two-wide formations, but Perriman missed out on his chance to make a case during training camp. Wallace and Maclin were healthy throughout camp and are locked in as the top two options -- in some order -- in Baltimore's passing game. Joe Flacco (back) is still absent from practice and may miss the entire preseason, but the team remains optimistic about his Week 1 availability.
Daniel was merely a depth option in the team's secondary after being promoted from the practice squad in late October. His release gave way for the Ravens to elevate safety Matt Elam (knee) back to the active roster.
After getting a veteran's week off for Baltimore's preseason opener, Wallace will get in on the action against his former team Thursday. However, with it being only the second week of the preseason, it's unlikely that Wallace and the rest of the Ravens' first-team offense sees significant snaps. Look for Wallace to play a handful of series against the Dolphins with Ryan Mallett as his quarterback, making him a risky option in preseason daily fantasy formats.
The Michigan product spent his rookie season on injured reserve, but Henry has hit the ground running since the start of camp. Henry (6-foot-3, 300 pounds) was a disruptive player in college, racking up 10.0 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks from the defensive interior in his final season in Ann Arbor. Baltimore is deep along the defensive line, but Henry can help his cause towards locking down a starting role if he continues to make waves on the practice field.
Woodhead and Terrance West shared snaps early in the game, with the latter drawing the start and losing two yards on six carries, while the former mostly spent his night dealing with uncatchable passes from Ryan Mallett. It wasn't an encouraging performance for the Baltimore offense, but the split between Woodhead and West fell right in line with expectations. The Ravens are optimistic Joe Flacco (back) will be ready by Week 1.
The rookie out of Alabama dropped to the third round in this year's draft amid off-field concerns, but his performance on the field has been one of the more notable non-injury developments to this point in Baltimore's training camp. According to Downing, Williams has been a regular presence in the backfield since the team began padded practice, using a multitude of techniques to beat offensive tackles and get penetration. "Great quick-twitch. He's just what we thought...He's the guy that we drafted," said defensive coordinator Dean Pees in an interview with the Baltimore Sun. Williams still has his work cut out for himself in order to make an impact as a rookie, but early reports suggest he might be further along than second-rounder Tyus Bowser in his development.
Bisciotti's vote of confidence shows that the Ravens will give Moore every opportunity to step into a much bigger role this season even with the addition of Jeremy Maclin to the mix. What's interesting here is that Bisciotti mentioned Moore ahead of Michael Campanaro, who had generated considerably more buzz than the University of Cincinnati product earlier in the offseason. Moore (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) does have a significant size advantage over the diminutive Campanaro, and Campanaro's lengthy injury history appears to be wearing thin on the Ravens' coaching staff. A healthy and productive camp from Campanaro could vault him over Moore to be the team's No. 4, but Moore certainly has the edge heading into training camp.
Suggs stated he is "fine and ready to go," so there doesn't appear to be any cause for concern regarding the issue. The veteran tough guy played through a torn biceps from Week 6 on in 2016, recording 35 tackles, eight sacks and three forced fumbles on the year. He's on track to start the year healthy and projects to start at weakside linebacker in Week 1.
This is a brutal injury for a rookie to suffer, especially when he was just starting to get looks as a possible starter. Nothing is certain, but don't expect to see Siragusa on the field in 2017.
The surgery will likely keep Young out for the entirety of the upcoming season. With Young on the sidelines, it looks as if the team is prepared to lean on the likes of rookie Marlon Humphrey and 23-year-old Maurice Canady.
Weddle made his presence felt once again Monday as he picked off his second pass in as many weeks. Moreover, he was strong in run support and racked up a season-high 11 tackles (six solo, five assisted), including one sack. According to Pro Football Focus, Weddle was Baltimore's highest graded defender in Monday's loss. He figures to be busy again Sunday when the Ravens face the Eagles' quick passing attack.
Boykin, who most recently played for the Bears, missed the entire 2016 season due to a pectoral injury. Presumably healthy now, the 26-year-old will compete for a reserve spot at cornerback behind projected starters Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr.
West was targeted on Baltimore's first offensive snap and later finished the team's third drive with three consecutive carries for 18, zero and two yards, with the last going for a score. Javorius Allen also got work on that series, but he wasn't efficient and isn't nearly the threat to West that a healthy Kenneth Dixon (knee) would've been. West should have a sizable leash in the lead role this year, albeit with Danny Woodhead handling most of the pass catching.
As expected, Webb and the Ravens worked out an agreement for him to return to the team after being released in March to free up cap room, which the Ravens used to help sign safety Tony Jefferson and cornerback Brandon Carr. While the specifics of the deal haven't been announced yet, it's assumed that Webb will be signing at a discount considering his market value was seemingly lower than he had anticipated. Though he has 82 career starts under his belt, Webb will likely have to play a depth role for the team or accept a job as the nickelback considering that the Ravens improved their secondary this offseason.
Kaufusi is reportedly back to full health after breaking his ankle prior to the 2016 season. The third-round pick is expected to compete for a starting job on the Ravens' defense. He figures to compete with Brent Urban and rookie Chris Wormley for a starting defensive end role. Even if he does not get the starting nod, the BYU product will presumably see playing time in a rotational role regardless. Barring any setbacks, he should enter training camp healthy and hungry.
Wade will give the Ravens another healthy body in the defensive backfield after the team waived/injured cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old Wade, a 2012 seventh-round pick, appeared in 16 games with the Giants in 2016, logging 26 tackles and a touchdown.
This is crushing news for the undrafted rookie after he shined in his preseason debut with a dazzling 33-yard touchdown on his lone target. White had been making a strong impression in camp as well, which made his outstanding performance in the preseason game all the more encouraging. With season-ending surgery on tap, he'll likely hit injured reserve. White's absence this season thins the competition for the final receiver spots on the roster, helping the likes of Quincy Adeboyejo, Chris Moore and C.J. Board.
In addition to having a regular spot across from Mike Wallace in two-wide formations, Maclin mostly appeared to play the slot, as expected, when the Ravens had three receivers on the field. Any talk of Breshad Perriman (hamstring) pushing Maclin or Wallace for a top-two spot can be put to rest, as the 2015 first-round pick missed nearly all of training camp for a third straight year and may not play this preseason. Maclin and Wallace, in some order, are clear favorites to lead the team in targets, though Danny Woodhead might not be too far behind. The Ravens are optimistic Joe Flacco (back) will be ready for Week 1.
Tucker had a 43-yard miss wiped out by a penalty in Thursday's preseason opener against Washington, but then quieted any concerns by drilling a 59-yarder at the end of the first half. He's locked in as one of the top options at his position -- the rare kicker good enough to achieve that status without being tied to a prolific offense. Tucker's slow start to training camp isn't a major concern at this point.
Eluemunor failed his conditioning test the first time around, but met the required benchmarks on his second try. He'll attempt to fight for playing time at right tackle this season.
Standing at 6-foot-3, 275 pounds, the Ravens presumably view this Grand Valley State product as an edge defender rather than an interior defender. With a 35-inch vertical and 4.73-second speed, Judon should be able to provide pressure from the edge.
The third-year lineman out of Iowa is entering a crucial year in his young career after missing the 2016 season with an ankle injury. Davis made his presence felt Thursday, however, as he generated pressure from the interior and got after the passer. Now that Davis is healthy, he's yet another young and talented piece that adds depth along the Ravens front.
Smith suffered a high-ankle sprain late in December and ultimately missed the final three games of the 2016 season. Fortunately he's been an active participant in OTAs this month and appears to be good to go moving forward.
Ryan Mallett got the start Thursday but Woodrum was the star as he led a pair of scoring drives and connected on several impressive passes. Woodrum has now completed 12 of his 14 passes for an impressive 195 yards through two games with the Ravens this preseason, bolstering his chances at making the roster in some capacity in the process. Mallett will likely see a greater share of the snaps in the third preseason game as the Ravens put on their dress rehearsal for the regular season, but Woodrum still stands to see plenty of reps in that game as well.
Urban missed Thursday's practice with an illness, but returned on Friday without any limitations. He should be able to play full tilt in Sunday's game.
Bowser, a second-round selection out of Houston, will immediately get a shot to carve out a role for himself with practice officially starting Thursday. Judon, a fifth-round selection in 2016, enjoyed some success as a rookie and could be tough for Bowser to unseat in the early going given Judon's edge in both size (6-foot-3, 275 pounds) and experience in this particular scheme. Still, Bowser's athleticism and pass-rushing prowess should allow him to see the field early in his career, even if he's not a starter.
Working their way back from major surgeries, Ben Watson (Achilles) and Maxx Williams (knee) may be healthy enough to practice, but still aren't back at full strength. With Dennis Pitta (hip), Darren Waller (suspension) and Crockett Gillmore (knee) out of the picture, Boyle has been the No. 1 tight end by default since the end of OTAs. He has a real shot at beating out Watson and Williams for the starting gig, as the Ravens have always seemed to hold Boyle in unusually high regard for a fifth-round selection (2015) who ran a 5.04 40-yard dash. He even stayed with the team through a pair of suspensions, with the Ravens apparently impressed by his blocking ability and perhaps also believing he's more of a receiving threat than the 40 time suggests. The Baltimore tight end group still isn't a likely source of fantasy utility this year.
This is yet another blow to an already beleaguered offensive line, as it loses a player in Lewis that was contending for a starting spot. With the loss of Lewis, Baltimore is now minus John Urschel (retirement), Jeremy Zuttah (trade), Rick Wagner (free agency), and rookie Nico Siragusa (knee) up front. According to Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun, the Ravens may have to sign a free-agent center and slide either Ryan Jensen or James Hurst to right guard.
Howard was released by the Raiders last week at the start of the third season of a five-year, $30 million contract signed back in 2014. Although a shoulder injury that required January surgery contributed toward a decline in his play last year, Howard's addition in Baltimore figures to provide needed support up front, where Marshal Yanda is the only other experienced option. Now 30 years old, Howard has started 71 games over the past five seasons, so he should compete for the Ravens' first-team gig at right tackle upon his arrival.
Allen entered the game midway through the first quarter and played deep into the second quarter, working behind Terrance West but ahead of Taquan Mizzell and Bobby Rainey. Kenneth Dixon's (knee) expected season-long absence makes Allen a good bet to crack the final roster, but the No. 3 running back job is unlikely to come with more than a handful of touches per game, if that, so long as West and Danny Woodhead are healthy. Allen has some deep-league appeal because he's capable of serving as the top backup for both West's rushing role and Woodhead's pass-catching role.
The Ravens will shore up their tight end position as Dennis Pitta's career hangs in the balance of a devastating hip dislocation that took place last week. Mallek was formerly with the Steelers during the offseason but was cut a couple weeks ago. The 23-year-old missed the entirety of last season due to a neck injury, which is definitely something to keep an eye on as he competes in OTAs and training camp.
Henry spent his rookie season in 2016 buried on the depth chart, eventually landing on injured reserve before logging a single snap. The young cornerback will be looking to catch on with another team and make his regular season debut in 2017. He's unlikely to be more than a depth player wherever he signs and may end up as a practice squad player in his second year.
The catch was just Rainey's third touch since New York's Week 8 bye. Thursday was the veteran's first game with double-digit offensive snaps since the bye as he has settled into more of a special-teams role after looking like a potential scatback earlier in the year.
Matthews was sidelined all of last season due to a torn ligament in his thumb, but it looks like the issue won't hinder him as he looks to secure a roster spot out of training camp. If Matthews is able to get through Tuesday's session without incident, he could see the field in Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins.
Thursday will mark Humphrey's in-game debut for the Ravens after sitting out of their preseason opener due to an undisclosed issue. Humphrey did go through warmups prior to the Ravens preseason opener, showing that he was close to being ready for game action. A first-rounder, Humphrey has looked strong at times throughout camp as he looks to carve out a role in the Ravens secondary early in his career.
Wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), running back Justin Forsett (knee), tight end Crockett Gilmore (back) and linebacker Albert McClellan (thigh) were all deemed questionable. Forsett returned to practice Friday and is expected to play.
Meanwhile, the following players were ruled probable: Wide receiver Marlon Brown (concussion), tight end Owen Daniels (rest), linebacker C.J. Mosley (wrist), linebacker Daryl Smith (rest), wide receiver Torrey Smith (knee), linebacker Terrell Suggs (rest), defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson (rest), linebacker Courtney Upshaw (hand) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle).
The 42nd overall selection in last year's draft, Correa logged just 48 defensive snaps in nine games, mostly contributing on special teams before a rib injury forced him to injured reserve in December. He made his mark in college as a pass rusher, but it seems the Ravens want him to play inside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, replacing early-retiree Zach Orr (neck). Baltimore could also use help at outside linebacker, which would seem to be Correa's more natural fit in the defense. Either way, he's expected to take on a key role as he prepares for his second professional season. He should have a clean bill of health with which to tackle whatever comes his way, as Correa's rib injury likely has cleared up at this point.
Kyle Juszczyk's departure this offseason left Baltimore with a hole at fullback, but Taliaferro (6-foot, 225 pounds) is a logical replacement at the position given his size and backfield experience. Still, a move to fullback negates much of Taliaferro's fantasy value as he's never shown to have the pass catching acumen that Juszczyk brought to the fullback spot. Hensley adds that Taliaferro will have to beat out Ricky Ortiz to lock up what will likely be the only fullback spot available on the roster.
This marks Stanley's third consecutive absence from practice as he works his way back from an undisclosed issue. There's no word on the severity of Stanley's injury, but considering the glut of attrition the Ravens' offensive line has endured this offseason, it's not surprising that the team is being cautious with its starting left tackle. Still, even if Stanley doesn't play Thursday, there's no indication at this point that he's in jeopardy of missing Week 1 at this time.
The Ravens were rumored to have interest in Morris Claiborne, who started across from Carr in the Dallas secondary for much of last season. The 30-year-old corner has started all 16 games in each of his nine NFL seasons, and while his availability has been the model of consistency, the quality of his play has been a different story. He was often exploited by No. 1 wideouts during his five-year tenure in Dallas, with his playmaking ability (one interception over the last three seasons) also leaving something to be desired. However, he should provide an upgrade in Baltimore, where the No. 2 and 3 cornerback spots are an annual weakness. Carr should draw easier matchups with his new team, as the other projected starters in the secondary -- CB Jimmy Smith and safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson -- are all stellar.
This means Ricard will now be in line to come off the PUP list. The undrafted free agent will need all the time he can get in order to show what he has to offer in hopes of landing a spot on the team's final roster.
Beyer resided on the Ravens' practice squad for the majority of the 2016 campaign before receiving a promotion in Week 17 to help replace an injured Kamalei Correa. He ultimately finished that game, and his rookie season, with three total tackles. He'll be in competition for a backup linebacker role this summer.
Fresh off signing a $54 million contract to stay with the Ravens for another five years, Williams' fantasy stock could really see a boost if he can get to the quarterback more frequently in 2017 -- especially since he's never topped 53 tackles in a 16-game slate despite being considered one of the premier run-clogging nose tackles in the NFL. His career high in a single season is just two sacks across his four years in the league, but he'll likely need to up that figure a few notches in order to be considered a legitimate IDP option in years to come.
Campanaro was much more involved in the offense Thursday after making just one reception for 10 yards in the preseason opener. Furthermore, it was encouraging to see Campanaro get into the mix early in the game, which suggests that he could still be as high as the No.4 receiver in Baltimore. The Ravens also used Campanaro in the run game, resulting in an 11-yard pickup. Campanaro was effective as an end-around/jet sweep option last season with three carries for a whopping 72 yards, so he could be used in that capacity again once the regular season begins. He's also the front runner to be the Ravens' primary punt returner with Tim White (thumb) done for the season.
This is great news for Yanda, who had shoulder surgery in March. The veteran lineman is expected to work back into the starting rotation by Week 1.
Gillmore wasn't expected to be a major contributor coming into this season anyhow, but after landing on IR, it appears his season may be over before it started. The Ravens will likely rely on the likes of Ben Watson and Maxx Williams at tight end this year.
The former Cleveland Brown was picked up by the Ravens on waivers toward the end of last season and will now try to crack the roster at a new position. Physically, Mayle's better suited at tight end at the NFL level after running a 4.67 40-yard dash at the Combine, but he's still undersized and has shown a penchant for drops in the past. He'll need to make waves during training camp in order to latch on with the practice squad considering the amount of money the Ravens have tied up in their tight end group.
An undrafted free agent, Louis played one game with the Cardinals in 2017 before ultimately finishing the season with the Ravens. He figures to use training camp as an opportunity to compete for a roster spot providing depth at inside linebacker.
