Ravens Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosley says he'll be full-go by training camp

Ravens Pro Bowl inside linebacker C.J. Mosley expects to be fully ready for training camp following a wrist surgery that prevented him from taking part in full-team drills during offseason practices.

"Yeah, I'll definitely be ready for camp," Mosley told The Baltimore Sun as the Ravens completed mandatory minicamp. "I'm doing pretty good. I'm getting there."

The Ravens' leading tackler last season after being selected in the first round of the NFL draft, Mosley hurt his wrist in December. Although the former Alabama All-American and Butkus Award winner was able to participate in individual drills, the team took precautions with Mosley as he practiced on a limited basis with a brace on his surgically repaired left wrist.

Between now and camp, with the first full-team practice scheduled for July 30, Mosley plans to return to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to finish rehabilitating his wrist and continue his workouts.

Mosley is still unable to lift as much weight as he could prior to the injury.

"Not all the way I want to," Mosley said. "I'm getting there, I can do more weight now than I could before this spring. I still want to be safe."

Mosley led rookies with 133 tackles and finished seventh among NFL players. He also had three sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He played more defensive snaps (1,080) than any Ravens player last season. He was in the game for all but 15 of the team's defensive plays during the regular season.

After being drafted 17th overall last year, Mosley finished second to St. Louis Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald in NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year balloting.

"I just want to get all the way healthy and get back out there," Mosley said. "I'm looking forward to the season and playing football again. It's tough to watch when you're used to being out there."
