Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (active/PUP) is recovering from shoulder surgery.

When Yanda was first placed on the active/PUP list it was thought to be because of the ankle injury that ended his 2017 season in Week 2. Instead, it's related to a January shoulder operation. Yanda's ankle is apparently "fine." "We’re going to be cautious with him," coach John Harbaugh said, while also emphasizing that Yanda will be ready for Week 1. He's week to week.

Speaking Thursday, contract-year Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley said there are "no updates" on his extension talks.

Extending Mosley should be a priority in Baltimore, though there have been precious few updates on talks. Headed into his age-26 season, Mosley has missed only two games in four years. An every-down player, Mosley notched 132 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and three forced fumbles in 2017.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles) practiced on Thursday.

The Ravens held their first training camp practice on Thursday. Smith was in uniform but will be "brought along slowly," according to ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley. He's about seven months removed from a torn Achilles. The 29-year-old (he turns 30 next week) earned PFF's No. 18 coverage grade out of 121 qualifiers at cornerback last season.

According to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, Breshad Perriman is in a "battle" to make the Ravens' Week 1 roster.

Perriman is owed a $649,485 roster bonus on Saturday and there was some thought he could be released ahead of that deadline, but apparently that won't be the case. However, the former first-round pick is far from a sure thing to crack the Ravens' opening-week roster, particularly after struggling to just 10 catches on 34 targets last year. Even if the draft bust makes Baltimore's 53-man squad, he won't be any better than fourth on the team's receiving depth chart behind offseason adds Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead.

Joe Flacco got together with his receivers and tight ends for outside workouts this summer for the first time since 2011.

This falls in line with reports that Flacco is "more motivated" this year after the Ravens used a first-round pick on Lamar Jackson, Flacco's eventual successor. Flacco has been about as mediocre a quarterback in football since winning the Super Bowl in 2012 and then tearing his ACL in 2015. He needed a fire lit under him, and the Jackson selection may have provided just that. The Ravens have also done more to upgrade his receiving corps this offseason.

Ravens RCB Jimmy Smith avoided the active/PUP list to open training camp.

Smith made a stunningly quick recovery after tearing his Achilles' tendon last December 3, even participating at June minicamp. He appears to have been fully cleared to practice on day one of training camp. Smith is one of the biggest difference makers on Baltimore's defense. Last season, Smith graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover corner among 121 qualifiers.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It means Dixon has been fully cleared to practice on day one of camp after missing all of 2017 with a torn meniscus. A recent beat writer article left Dixon off the Ravens' 53-man roster projection, but the organization was very high on his ability before the lost year. More likely, Dixon will battle Buck Allen to serve as Baltimore's change-of-pace back behind Alex Collins.

Ravens placed RG Marshal Yanda on active/PUP.

Our first blurb of 2018 training camps. Yanda broke his ankle last Week 2 and was done for the year. He's had ten months of recovery time, but isn't ready to practice early in camp. Players placed on active/PUP can be activated at any time, however, and the expectation remains Yanda will be ready for Week 1. WR Quincy Adeboyejo, CB Jaylen Hill, LB Bam Bradley, and TE Vince Mayle are also beginning Ravens camp on active/PUP.
Jul 16 - 4:52 PM

Ravens signed No. 25 overall pick TE Hayden Hurst to a four-year contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. Hurst will be a 25-year-old rookie after spending two seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization, then three in the SEC. Hurst tested as a 46th-percentile athlete with 4.67 speed before the draft. Hurst is raw and old for a prospect, but he offers a plus pass-catching skill set and willingness to block. Hurst should start right away, though the Ravens also selected a catch-first tight end in Mark Andrews at No. 86.

Per ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley, the "consensus" among players and coaches is that Joe Flacco is "more motivated" this offseason following Baltimore's first-round trade up for Lamar Jackson.

"Drafting Lamar and bringing [Robert] Griffin in, it’s lit a fire under him," S Eric Weddle said. "You can tell. It has shown." The common comparison is from Flacco to Alex Smith, who supposedly benefited from having a "fire lit" when the Chiefs traded up for Pat Mahomes. Flacco should know his job is on the line. The Ravens can cut him after this season and save $10.5 million in cap space.

Ravens OL Alex Lewis is sitting out minicamp with a back injury.

It's a concern for a player with Lewis' history, but the Ravens don't expect him to miss much time. With Baltimore re-signing James Hurst, Lewis is expected to remain at left guard.
Jun 13 - 10:50 AM

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') is participating in individual drills at minicamp.

It's a great sign after Smith tore his Achilles' in December. There was initially wonder if Smith would even be ready for Week 1, but at this point, he should be ready for training camp. Coach John Harbaugh did say in March that Smith was ahead of schedule in his rehab. With Smith, Brandon Carr, and sophomore Marlon Humphrey, Baltimore has a solid cornerback trio.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports Breshad Perriman has struggled with drops this offseason.

Hensley reports Perriman has dropped a pass in every practice open to the media so far this offseason. It is certainly not a new problem for the former first-rounder, but it is disappointing all the same. Due a $649,485 roster bonus on the third day of camp, it would not be surprising if the Ravens cut Perriman sometime in the next month.
Jun 12 - 12:47 PM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team is "trying to figure out" how to use first-round QB Lamar Jackson.

Even with Joe Flacco locked into the starting job, Harbaugh said Jackson will be active on game days and involved in the offense. "I sure like him out there helping us," Harbaugh said. "If you put two quarterbacks on the field at once, what options does it create for our offense? That's what we're trying to figure out." If Baltimore really wanted to take advantage of Jackson's talent, they would start him over Flacco.

Coach John Harbaugh and owner Steve Bisciotti were both fined for undisclosed infractions of league rules, while the Ravens also had to forfeit two OTA practices.

The Ravens are now repeat offenders after losing three OTA practices in 2016 when they had players in pads at rookie minicamp. It's probably a similar infraction this time around. Harbaugh was fined $50,000, and Bisciotti was docked $100,000. It hasn't worked to make the Ravens any good.
