In his first comments since the Ravens trimmed their roster to the 53-man group they essentially began the week with, coach John Harbaugh said there were several positions where the team had tough decisions to make.
In getting down to a 53-man roster Saturday, the Ravens showed a willingness to move on from their draft picks, the importance that they place on special teams and how much they value having defensive depth.
Wide receivers Daniel Brown, who caught a touchdown and blocked a punt in Thursday night's preseason-closing loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and Tom Nelson, offensive tackle Blaine Clausell, inside linebacker Andrew Bose and cornerback Quinton Pointer were all let go. Their releases leave the Ravens with 70 players, meaning that they'll have to make 17 more moves by 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Defensive end Lawrence Guy on Tuesday returned from a knee injury suffered Saturday against the Washington Redskins, giving the Ravens a boost at a defensive line position that could be thin in the final preseason game.
Ravens defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan suffered an apparent right knee injury on the fourth defensive play of the game Saturday against the Washington Redskins, while offensive lineman Ryan Jensen left the game with a head injury and is in the concussion protocol, the team announced.
Rookie tight end Maxx Williams and starting offensive linemen Eugene Monroe and Kelechi Osemele were among several prominent players on the Ravens offense who didn't dress for Saturday's preseason game against the Washington Redskins.
The list of injured Ravens, which has swollen to over a dozen as training camp progresses, didn't grow on Wednesday, but none of the high-profile players who have been missing resurfaced for practice ahead of the all-important third preseason game Saturday against the Washington Redskins.
Injuries prevented the Ravens' top backups from playing valuable snaps Saturday night. With the regular season creeping closer, offensive line depth is being put under the type of strain that could cripple it were it not for the extra players afforded by a 90-man training camp roster.
Terrell Suggs' low hit on quarterback Sam Bradford, which drew a roughing the passer penalty and prompted at least one Philadelphia Eagles player to call the outside linebacker a dirty player, got all the attention. But it was only one of 17 penalties for 139 total yards for the Ravens.
With several offensive linemen looking as though they would miss the Ravens' preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, coach John Harbaugh said Friday that it would be incumbent on those who were healthy to step in and play, no matter their experience.
Six offensive linemen -- including two starters and two top reserves -- didn't dress for Saturday's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, leaving the Ravens with 11 offensive linemen for the game.
Ravens rookie guard Robert Myers said he hit his target by returning Tuesday from a concussion, putting him in contention to participate in the team¿s joint practices with the Philadelphia Eagles beginning Wednesday with an outside chance of playing in the game.
A Ravens guard position fortified by both star veterans and promising young linemen took losses Thursday with starter Kelechi Osemele sitting out and reserves John Urschel and Robert Myers both leaving practice early.
The Baltimore Sun is breaking down where the Ravens stand at each position, including predictions on how many players the team will keep at each spot and which players are locks, long shots or "on the bubble."
While we learned a little last week about Joe Flacco's adjustment to Marc Trestman's version of the West Coast offense, Timmy Jernigan's ascension to the starting defensive line and just how much longer 36-year-old wide receiver Steve Smith might play in the NFL, all of that has been sufficiently discussed and dissected.
With the start of the new NFL year looming this afternoon, the Ravens had not reached an agreement Monday night on new contracts with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and cornerback Lardarius Webb, whose current deals will make it extremely difficult for the organization to be active in free agency.
Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe was limited to special teams action in Sunday¿s 35-31 playoff loss to the New England Patriots, a frustrating end to a season stunted by injuries that limited him to just 11 starts.
After making progress with his ankle injury all week, Ravens left offensive tackle Eugene Monroe is active for Saturday's AFC divisional-round playoff game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
Even after creating $3 million in salary-cap space by converting $4 million of Webb's $7.5 million base salary into a signing bonus, the Ravens are just $3.321 million under the NFL salary-cap limit of $133 million.
The Ravens pared their roster down to the NFL's required 53-player limit Saturday, choosing to keep two quarterbacks and seven wide receivers and leaving themselves thin at cornerback and along the offensive and defensive lines.
