Shortly after the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Pro Bowl offensive guard Marshal Yanda underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff.
Months later, Yanda reports steady progress after passing his physical shortly into training camp and being activated from the physically unable to perform list.
Although Yanda isn't practicing, he doesn't expect to be sidelined much longer as the Ravens take a patient approach to his rehabilitation.
"Yep, doing good," said Yanda, who participates in morning walkthrough sessions. "Just taking it one day at a time and getting it stronger and coming along. I had to wait for the Super Bowl, I had it done five days after the Super Bowl. Since I had it so late, it's going to cut into training camp a little bit. I should be back out there soon. We'll see what happens."
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Yanda has reached the point where he'll eventually be cleared for full contact during camp.
"We have a pretty good idea," Harbaugh said. "I don't want to put an exact date on it, but it will be into training camp pretty good. We're not in a rush with him. We're not in a rush with him. We're very much on schedule."
