Bradley suffered a torn ACL and was ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. The undrafted rookie primarily was in line for a special teams role on the Ravens this season.
A torn meniscus ended Dixon's sophomore campaign before it could ever get off the ground as he suffered the injury early in training camp. Dixon was expected to enter the season with an edge over Terrance West as the Ravens' primary two-down back with Danny Woodhead set to take on pass-catching duties on third downs. It's encouraging that Dixon appears to be in line to resume football activities when Baltimore ramps things back up later in the spring, but he'll face a new challenge after Alex Collins enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2017 for the Ravens. With that, Dixon will likely enter OTAs as the fourth running back on the Ravens' depth chart.
Mosley had the opportunity to post his season high in tackles because he played a monstrous 89 defensive snaps. The fourth-year pro now has 115 tackles on the season, and since he consistently plays full snap counts, Mosley is a stellar IDP option.
Canady was able to take the practice field on a limited basis all week, which ultimately put him in line to suit up for the Week 15 matchup. He's logged 32 or more snaps in the secondary in four consecutive weeks, in addition to his role on special teams.
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.
Things were seemingly setting up for Williams to have a prominent role in 2017 with Crockett Gilmore on injured reserve and starter Ben Watson coming off a torn Achilles at age 36. Unfortunately, Williams suffered a foot injury early in the season that kept him out for several games and prevented him from carving out a significant role. He did manage to play a healthy amount of snaps down the stretch, but for a tight end billed for his pass-catching ability, Williams rarely saw much action in that facet of the game. While Williams caught 15 of his 18 targets, his 4.8 YPT does not inspire a ton of confidence. With Watson possibly leaving in free agency, Williams enters a make-or-break year in the final season of his rookie deal.
Hill sustained the ligament damage in Saturday's 23-16 win over the Colts and likely will undergo surgery within the next week or two and face a lengthy rehab. The undrafted rookie hasn't seen much action at cornerback this season but was a key contributor on special teams over his six appearances.
Jeremy Maclin's (knee) status is up in the air for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bengals, so the addition of Adeboyejo will give the Ravens another depth option at receiver. Adeboyejo, who signed with the Ravens in May as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi, was among the team's final roster cuts coming out of training camp.
Clark exited in first first half to be evaluated for a concussion but never entered the concussion protocol. The 22-year-old should continue to be a contributor on special teams.
The two times Mallett was called upon were in extraordinary circumstances: The first came when Baltimore was trailing by a significant margin in a loss to the Jaguars, and the second occurred when starter Joe Flacco was knocked out of Baltimore's win over Miami. He looked competent against the Jaguars, but the garbage time wrinkle makes it tough to extrapolate much from that performance. His role after taking over for Flacco against the Dolphins was primarily to hand off the ball with the Ravens in run-out-the-clock mode. Looking ahead, Mallett is set to hit free agency this offseason and it's unclear whether Baltimore is interested in bringing him back or going in another direction at the backup quarterback spot. It's worth noting that the Ravens could get out of their deal with Flacco after the 2019 season, which opens the possibility of the team spending a draft pick on a developmental signal caller for the future instead of bringing back a pricier veteran such as Mallett. In any case, Mallett's outlook for 2018 will be inking a deal as a backup.
It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Watson was once again the safety blanket for quarterback Joe Flacco, and had 16 receptions for 175 yards and a touchdown over the final three games of the season, ending the season as the Ravens' second-leading receiver (61 catches for 522 yards). The 37-year-old will enter free agency in 2018 after missing the entirety of 2016 with a torn Achilles, and retirement seems like a definite consideration, although no announcement has been made one way or the other.
A big-ticket free-agent signing in the offseason, Jefferson turned in a solid first season in Baltimore. However, it fell well short of the expectations he set in his final year in Arizona, when he racked up 96 tackles in 15 games and ended the year as one of the top safeties in the league. Jefferson isn't known for his speed or coverage skills, but he tends to make up for that as a hard-nosed run-stopper in the box. However, his performance in 2017 left Jefferson as just the 27th-best safety in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. He has recorded under 80 tackles in three of his four full seasons, which is starting to make his electric 2016 look like a bit of an aberration. In any case, Jefferson plays the type of role that allows him to pick up plenty of tackles and up his value as an IDP safety. He just might not be the elite IDP safety that some may have expected.
The stat-line is arguably Smith's best one of the season in 13 games, which provides a solid indication of his current IDP value. The 25-year-old does have a sack in two consecutive games, but his season total of 22 tackles and 3.5 sacks should keep him off the IDP radar in Week 17.
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.
There wasn't much doubt the linebacker would play after logging a full practice on Wednesday. Onwuasor has seen increased defensive reps throughout the season, averaging 61 snaps over the past two contests. The knee injury may limit that number Thursday night, in which case Kamalei Correa could see some increased action in the game.
Levine sustained the injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game and headed to the locker room shortly thereafter. The 30-year-old's absence should be felt on special teams and in the dime defense, which could see Chuck Clark have increased snaps with Levine unlikely to return.
A surprise cut by the Seahawks out of training camp, Collins landed with the Ravens' practice squad soon after and earned a promotion to the 53-man roster ahead of Week 2 after Danny Woodhead (hamstring) was moved to injured reserve. Though ball security was occasionally an issue, Collins proved to be the team's most effective ballcarrier, finishing the campaign 212 carries for 973 yards (4.6 average) and six touchdowns. Woodhead, Javorius Allen and a rehabbing Kenneth Dixon (knee) are all under contract for 2018 and possess skill sets than have made them useful over their respective NFL careers, but unless the Ravens add another option to the backfield via free agency or the draft, Collins looks poised to enter training camp as the team's No. 1 option.
Flacco picked things up after halftime, but completed only 5 of 19 passes for 28 yards in the first half. The spark was a six-yard touchdown to receiver Chris Moore at the end of the first half, set up by Moore's 87-yard kick return. The Ravens offense looked like a different team after that, with the only real blemish being a redzone pick-six on a pass bobbled by Moore. Despite the abysmal first half, the veteran signal caller continued his strong play down the stretch, but ultimately fell short of carrying Baltimore to the postseason.
It was a disastrous season for Perriman, who took several steps back after a promising 2016 campaign in which he brought in 33 receptions for 499 yards and three scores. His catch rate dropped to just 28.5 percent, which was considerably less than his already subpar 50 percent catch rate from a year ago. He was a healthy scratch several times down the stretch, showing that the team had a greater level of trust in the likes of Chris Moore and Michael Campanaro -- both of whom are late-round draft picks as opposed to Perriman's status as a former first-rounder. Coach John Harbaugh said at his year-end press conference that Perriman "is a wonderful young man. He wants to fill all of the expectations he has for himself. He wants to be great. That's something we have to find out. It's up to Breshad, it's up to us. It's a tough league. You have to earn your stripes," according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun. Perriman has just one year left on his rookie deal, and it's clear that the team's confidence in him has waned considerably. A year ago, the questions surrounding Perriman had less to do with talent being NFL-level and more to do with his ability to hold up for a full regular season. Heading into 2018, it's the questions are fully centered on whether he can make any sort of NFL impact. 2017 was a make or break year for Perriman, and it was decidedly broken.
The veteran receiver's production took a dip from his first season in Baltimore across the board save for yards-per-reception (14.4), but it was still a fine all-around campaign for Wallace playing in a clunky offense with subpar quarterback play. He finished as a top-40 receiver in standard formats and his calling card -- speed -- was still on display as he reeled in 11 receptions of 20-or-more yards, which tied for his best in a season since leaving Pittsburgh. Wallace will hit free agency this offseason as a 31-year-old receiver with a perceived dependence on speed, so the chances of him landing a deal beyond two years are essentially null, but Wallace has shown he has enough in the tank to be a No.2 or No. 3 for a receiver-needy team.
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.
The veteran was acquired in the offseason with the idea of becoming the Ravens' next high-volume pass catcher out of the backfield. The early returns were promising as he caught his first three targets for 33 yards in the first half of the season opener against the Bengals before a hamstring injury knocked him out for eight games. Woodhead was moderately productive down the stretch, averaging 4.5 targets per game in the second half of the season, but Javorius Allen and even Alex Collins started to take passing-down snaps away from him. The Ravens are financially committed to Woodhead for two more seasons and quarterback Joe Flacco's penchant for checkdowns means that Woodhead should continue to see a fair amount of targets, but his complete lack of utility as a rusher coupled with his minimal touchdown upside render him as a PPR-only type of fantasy option.
Entering the season, Moore was buried as deep as fifth on the wide receiver depth chart and was expected to play a very minor role in the Ravens' passing attack. However, Breshad Perriman's dropoff and Michael Campanaro's durability issues opened the door for Moore to make an impact and he took advantage of the opportunity. Moore finished fifth on the team and third among receivers in receiving yards and his three touchdowns ranked second among Baltimore pass catchers. The outlook for next season is relatively bright for Moore with Mike Wallace hitting unrestricted free agency and Jeremy Maclin potentially becoming a cap casualty. However, if Baltimore loses both of those veterans, the Ravens would likely look to bring in some added receiver depth via free agency or the draft. Still, Moore likely did enough in 2017 to be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Ravens in 2018.
Suggs, now 35 years old and having just finished his 15th season in the NFL, suggested his physical health isn't a concern despite his advanced age. Considering he led the Ravens with 11 sacks this season to go along with 49 total tackles and four forced fumbles, we'd like to agree with him.
Crockett went undrafted out of North Dakota State in 2015 but hasn't appeared in a game since his rookie season with the Packers, when he accrued 21 yards on nine carries in two appearances. He'll likely need to impress offseason in order to crack the final roster come September 2018.
Siragusa received a potential promotion to the offensive line prior to the injury, but a torn ACL, MCL and PCL has the potential to sideline the rookie for an extended period of time. He will miss 2017 at a minimum, but there's no guarantee he will be ready at the beginning of 2018 either.
This is quietly an excellent development for Baltimore's secondary depth with Young making a speedy recovery from a torn ACL that cost him the entirety of the 2017 season. Prior to his injury, Young was poised to be the Ravens' starting nickel corner. His injury allowed Maurice Canady to take a step forward in his development, picking up significant playing time down the stretch. Young will have his work cut out for him in terms of reclaiming the starter's status he carried coming into 2017, but if he shows he hasn't lost a step, he very well could find himself as a primary nickel option in 2018.
Another year, another Pro Bowl for Weddle, who'll be heading to his fifth-career Pro Bowl and his fourth in the last five seasons. His ball-hawking ability netted him six interceptions, which marks the second-highest output of his career. It is worth noting that Weddle wasn't quite as active in defending the run this season as his tackles fell from 89 to a career-low 63, although some of that role change can be attributed to the addition of noted box safety Tony Jefferson. With Jefferson signed to be in Baltimore for the foreseeable future, it's reasonable to think that Weddle's floor in IDP formats will be a bit lower as he won't be asked to stick his nose in the run game as much as previous years. He's still a playmaker in the secondary that can rack up interceptions, but the lightened week-to-week tackle production probably knocks Weddle down from the elite tier of IDP safeties.
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.
The four-year veteran heads to free agency at an unfortunate time as West put together the worst season of his career to date in 2017. West entered the season as the favorite to be the Ravens' primary back on standard downs after Kenneth Dixon went down with a season-ending meniscus injury, but he surprisingly fell behind Alex Collins -- who was signed to the practice squad just before the regular season -- and Javorius Allen. West will be 27 when the season begins but he still has the size and physical running style to garner some attention from teams in need of a short-yardage back. That said, his days of being a starter-level option for teams is likely over.
Skura returns to the field after missing the last two games with an MCL sprain. Look for the 24-year-old to resume his role as a starting right guard for the contest.
Webb practiced without restrictions Thursday and Friday, so seems to be on track to play. However, with Michael Campanaro (shoulder) already ruled out, Webb's potential absence would force the Ravens to dig deep at punt returner.
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.
Coach John Harbaugh made the announcement during Thursday's end-of-season press conference, mentioning that White is back to 100 percent after suffering a thumb injury in preseason that sidelined him for his entire rookie year. Now that he's healthy, White should be ready for the start of organized team activities in the spring. However, as a former undrafted free agent that'll be battling other fringe receivers along with 2018 rookies, White will need to show that he's more than just healthy this spring in order to secure a roster spot.
In addition to missing missing four games due to injury, Maclin struggled to career-low marks in receptions (40) and receiving yards (440) during his first season in Baltimore, with his lack of productivity proving problematic for an already weak passing attack. Maclin carries a $7.5 million cap hit for the 2018 season and is due a $1 million roster bonus March 16, so expect the Ravens to render a decision on his future with the organization by that date. By releasing Maclin, the Ravens would gain $5 million in cap space and afford the front office some more flexibility during the offseason.
It was another stellar season from Tucker, who converted over 90 percent of his field goal attempts for the second year in a row and fourth time in his career. Tucker was also among the league's elite from distance, checking in with five field goals of 50-or-more yards, but that was a dropoff after going 10-for-10 from that distance in 2016. Still, Tucker is clearly one of the most bankable options at kicker regardless of format thanks to his high volume of attempts coupled with a unique ability to convert from almost any distance. Tucker, 28, is under contract for two more years.
Eluemunor is used as a backup right guard, so the Ravens will be lacking offensive line depth without him.
This year was a big test for Judon, a former-fifth rounder, who saw the writing on the wall when Baltimore spent a pair of Day 2 picks on edge rushers (Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser) in the draft. Judon responded by entrenching himself as a fixture on the edge for the Ravens, playing in every game and posting strong number on a nearly weekly basis. Looking ahead, it stands to reason that the Ravens will want a longer look at Bowser and Williams in Year 2 of their respective careers, which could signal a dialed back role for Judon. Still, Judon did enough to at least retain a regular role on the edge for the Ravens for 2018.
The former Iowa Hawkeye had his most productive professional season in 2017, but he did battle a shoulder issue down the stretch that ultimately required surgery once the campaign ended. Davis suffered the injury in Week 15 against Cleveland and although he was active for the final two games, his snap counts were scaled back dramatically. He finished the year with 19 total tackles and 0.5 sacks over 15 games. Davis enters a pivotal year in his young career as the former third-rounder has yet to truly live up to his draft position, so if the shoulder rehab lingers into training camp, it could put him behind the curve.
Smith will thus finish out the season on IR while simultaneously serving the four-game suspension he was handed Monday for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. His loss is huge for the Ravens, as Smith was one of the team's best players and will finish the season as Pro Football Focus' 10th-highest graded corner in pass coverage. In fact, Smith's absence was immediately felt once he left Sunday's victory over the Lions, as Marvin Jones -- who previously didn't do much of anything -- then went on to catch two passes of at least 40 yards on rookie Marlon Humphrey. Humphrey will presumably replace Smith in the starting lineup going forward.
Woodrum impressed in the preseason, completing 69 percent of his passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, while adding 42 rushing yards and two rushing scores on 16 carries. With incumbent No. 2 quarterback Ryan Mallett set to hit free agency this offseason, Woodrum has a legitimate shot to crack the Ravens' 53-man roster in 2018.
Urban is on the mend from a Lisfranc injury he suffered in Week 3 and expects to be cleared to play prior to the start of team training camps in late July and early August. Though he's set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, both Baltimore and Urban have expressed mutual interest in reaching a new deal.
The rookie second-round pick hasn't played more than 15 defensive snaps since Week 2 but he still made his presence known Thursday. He may continue to be summoned in pass rush situations, but with the Titans on the horizon in Week 9, Bowser will have a tough time getting to quarterback Marcus Mariota, who has been sacked on just 2.76 percent of his dropbacks.
Entering the year, Boyle had some buzz as a potential sleeper at tight end, considering his main competition at that position for targets was an aging Ben Watson coming off an Achilles injury. Boyle did play a significant role, seeing 64 percent of the offensive snaps to tie with Watson for second among Ravens skill position players; however, his primary duties were centered around blocking. He is a reasonably reliable pass-catcher in his own right, having caught 54 of 66 targets in his career, but Watson was simply better suited to handle most of the target volume in the short and intermediate passing game. If Watson, whose contract expired, does not return, Boyle should have a chance to see an uptick in volume in the passing game; that said, the Ravens value Boyle's blocking a fair amount, and the team may want to see what it has in former second-rounder Maxx Williams when it comes to being the pass-catching tight end in 2018.
That would put Lewis on track to take part in Organized Team Activities and all other aspects of the Ravens' offseason program. The 25-year-old was in contention for a starting role prior to undergoing the season-ending procedure to address a torn labrum last September.
Howard was listed as questionable despite being a full participant at Friday's practice, although he did sit out Wednesday's session. The 30-year-old should take his usual starting role at right tackle for the Ravens in their regular season finale.
Considering that Allen was a healthy scratch for the final five games of the 2016 season, 2017 was a resurgent year for the USC product. It took developments like injuries to Kenneth Dixon, Danny Woodhead and Terrance West for Allen to get his shot again, but he performed ably when called upon. Alex Collins clearly took over the No. 1 role and eventually started seeing some passing-down snaps, but Allen still had a prominent role -- especially in the first half of the season. Looking ahead to 2018, it's difficult to bet on so many things falling in Allen's favor again. Dixon is primed to return, Collins has the starting role all but locked up, and Woodhead remains under contract. The 2018 season will be Allen's contract year, but it's difficult to imagine him seeing the same role he did in 2017.
Jean-Baptiste has appeared in just four career NFL games after being selected by the Saints in the second round of the 2014 draft. He was most recently released by the Chiefs in June but will now look to catch on as a reserve cornerback or special teams player in Jacksonville.
According to a report of the incident, which occurred back on Jan. 13, Humphrey, the Ravens' first-round pick out of Alabama in 2017, was accused of harassment and being under the influence after allegedly stealing a phone charger valued at $15. The Ravens addressed the matter in a statement Thursday, acknowledging that Humphrey is cooperating with police and that the 21-year-old informed the team his arrest was a "misunderstanding." A resolution on Humphrey's legal situation is expected to come before the 2018 season begins.
The veteran was let go in order to make room for the activation of L.J. Fort from the practice squad. Given his track record, it wouldn't be surprising if he lands elsewhere sooner than later.
McClellan's 2017 season was lost to a torn ACL he suffered last August. Given the timing of the injury, he could be sidelined throughout OTAs in April and May but should be fully recovered before training camp opens this summer.
Correa has been groomed throughout the preseason for this role following Zach Orr's early retirement. Although he's had some ups and downs in learning his new position after playing the edge in college, Correa has done enough to earn the starting spot alongside Mosley for Week 1. However, Hensley adds that Patrick Onwuasor is right on Correa's heels for that starting role should Correa struggle.
Stanley was questionable for Sunday's game despite being a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday. Expect him to see his typical role along the starting offensive line.
The veteran corner has picked up 13 tackles over the last two weeks after notching just 15 tackles through his first six outings. Carr also leads the team with three interceptions and is tied with Jimmy Smith for the team lead in passes defensed with seven. He's a durable corner who is a safe bet to be on the field for the vast majority of Baltimore's defensive plays on a weekly basis, but his tackle numbers won't always be as good as they were Thursday.
A third-round pick of the Texans in 2012, Posey spent three unremarkable seasons in the NFL before washing out of the league following the 2014 campaign. The wideout has since plied his trade in the Canadian Football League the past two seasons with the Toronto Argonauts, who he helped lead to a league championship en route to claiming Grey Cup MVP honors. Now 28 years old, Posey is hopeful that his successful run in Canada will put him in better position to make an impact in the passing game in his second trial in the NFL.
Williams was a nightmare for opposing ballcarriers in 2017 and ultimately graded out as Pro Football Focus' third-highest-graded 3-4 defensive end against the run. In fact, the Ravens' run defense fell off a cliff when he wasn't available to play, evidenced by the fact Baltimore surrendered just 82.2 rushing yards per game on a 2.5-yards-per-carry clip with Williams in the lineup compared to 169.5 yards per game and 4.3 yards per carry without him. However, his fantasy value pales in comparison to his real-life value given his meager statistical production, leaving Williams off the IDP radar in most formats ahead of the 2018 campaign.
The Wake Forest product was dinged up at different points of the year, including a shoulder injury that sidelined him two games, but this was still Campanaro's most productive professional season. He had never played more than four games in any of his previous three seasons and had never seen more than seven total touches from scrimmage. Injuries and poor performance from other receivers opened the door for Campanaro to fill the larger role after having been relegated to being a gadget player in the past. The Ravens could be losing some of their top veteran receivers this offseason, but Campanaro is hitting free agency in his own right. Baltimore's familiarity with Campanaro makes it feasible to see the team bringing him back on the cheap, but the Ravens will likely be adding new starting receivers externally as well.
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.
Nembot was ruled out for the season with an undisclosed injury prior to the team's final exhibition game. If he and the team do not reach an injury settlement, he will spend his entire 2017 season on their IR.
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.
Mayle faced no limitations at practice Friday and appears clear of the concussion he suffered last Thursday. The 26-year-old should serve as the Ravens' third tight end with Ben Watson and Maxx Williams (ankle) both active Sunday.
