Baltimore Ravens

Elvis Dumervil is not in attendance at Ravens minicamp

The Ravens had 80 of their 90 roster players on the field Tuesday as their three-day mandatory minicamp got underway.

Several of the 10 absences were expected. Quarterback Joe Flacco (knee), wide receivers Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles), Breshad Perriman (knee) and Michael Campanaro (calf), rush linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles), defensive end Bronson Kaufusi (back), defensive tackle Michael Pierce (undisclosed) and cornerback Jumal Rolle (Achilles) all remained sidelined with their respective injuries.


Veteran left tackle Eugene Monroe also wasn't practicing, which isn't a huge surprise given his tenuous status with the organization.

However, one surprise absence was veteran strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil. It isn't clear why the 32-year-old isn't participating in the mandatory practice. Dumervil dealt with myriad injuries last season, but the team hasn't said that he needed any offseason surgeries.


Dumervil also missed both of the Ravens voluntary organized team activities, but he traditionally doesn't participate in them.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith was in uniform after a procedure to remove the screws in his surgically-repaired foot knocked him out of the OTAs. He appeared to be a limited participant in the workout.

The Ravens also had several "tryout" guys at the workout, including veteran offensive lineman Todd Herremans. The 11-year veteran was let go by the Indianapolis Colts in December. He played with the Eagles from 2005 to 2014, where part of the time, he was coached by current Ravens offensive line coach Juan Castillo.
