Which injured players will be ready and who won't be?
The Ravens aren't dealing with any hugely impactful long-term injuries like they were last training camp with Suggs. However, several key players -- most of them on defense -- have issues that could force them to start training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list and affect their readiness for Sept. 5.
Both McClain (spinal cord contusion) and Webb (torn ACL) (both pictured above) have made progress in their recoveries from significant injuries suffered last season, but neither has been fully cleared by doctors and the Ravens will be extremely cautious with both.
Nose tackle Terrence Cody (hip surgery) also isn't expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Linebackers Brown (sports hernia) and Albert McClellan (shoulder surgery) and defensive linemen Ngata (knee) and Pernell McPhee (groin surgery) should be full go early in camp, if not from Day One.
The injury concern on offense is Yanda, the two-time Pro Bowl right guard who had rotator cuff surgery this offseason. Harbaugh said last month that he expects Yanda to be "back by camp to some degree" but he could start training camp on the PUP list as well.
