Ravens coach John Harbaugh has confirmed RB Kenneth Dixon (knee, injured reserve) will be a candidate for return.

Dixon will first be eligible to return in Week 11. Alex Collins is the Ravens' lead back with Buck Allen serving in a change-of-pace role. It's not one of the league's deeper backfields.
Sep 17 - 2:47 PM

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) will not resume practicing this week.

It means he will miss his third-straight game and be questionable at best for Week 4. The Ravens are going with a preposterously large tight end committee in Hurst's absence.
Sep 17 - 2:46 PM

Ravens placed CB Maurice Canady on injured reserve with a thigh injury.

Canady has had an injury-marred career. LB Albert McClellan was signed in a corresponding roster move.
Sep 17 - 1:34 PM

Ravens re-signed LB Albert McClellan.

Released at final cuts, McClellan is being brought back with C.J. Mosley questionable because of a knee injury.
Sep 17 - 9:24 AM

Speaking after Thursday's loss, Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed ILB C.J. Mosley (knee) avoided ligament damage.

The Bengals have an MRI machine at the stadium. Mosley has "just" a bone bruise, but that can be a multi-week injury. The Ravens host the Broncos in 10 days.
Sep 14 - 12:39 AM

Willie Snead caught 5-of-8 targets for 54 yards in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Snead has firmly established himself as the No. 3 in the Ravens' three-wide sets, but it has translated to a modest nine catches for 103 yards through two games. You can do better if you are looking for an upside flier on the waiver wire, especially ahead of next week's tough matchup against the Broncos.
Sep 14 - 12:26 AM

Javorius Allen rushed six times for eight yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Bengals, adding five receptions for 36 additional yards.

We knew Allen would be more involved following Kenneth Dixon's knee injury, but the extent was surprising. Allen received the Ravens' first goal-line touch over Alex Collins, converting a one-yard attempt midway through the second quarter. FOX's Troy Aikman matter of factly referred to Allen as the Ravens' goal-line back. Collins failed on an attempt of his own later in the period. Collins was the more impressive player, showing far more wiggle and tackle-breaking ability. Collins is still the player to own. Allen should not be an RB4 consideration against the Broncos in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 12:17 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-10 targets for 56 yards in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Crabtree now has eight catches for 94 yards and a touchdown through two games as a Raven. That comes out to 11.8 yards per pop, which would be Crabtree's highest mark since 2013. Don't expect it to hold. Crabtree is a possession, chain-moving receiver who will leave your fantasy team feeling cold when he doesn't find the end zone.
Sep 14 - 12:12 AM

John Brown caught 4-of-10 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Brown's 10 targets tied Michael Crabtree for the team lead. They were six more than he drew in the opener. Brown now has two touchdowns through two games as a Raven and made two nearly impossible catches this evening. The first was a 45-yarder that should have been picked in triple coverage. The second was his 21-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, where he simply took the ball from Dre Kirkpatrick in the end zone. Fully healthy and playing a legitimate amount of snaps, Brown is shaping up as an upside WR3.
Sep 14 - 12:07 AM

Alex Collins rushed nine times for 35 yards in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Bengals, adding three catches for 55 additional yards.

Collins was breaking tackles — especially on his 24-yard catch-and-rumble in the third quarter — but coach John Harbaugh was addicted to giving Buck Allen touches. At one point in the broadcast, color commentator Troy Aikman matter of factly referred to Allen as the Ravens' goal-line back. Allen indeed converted from the one-yard line for a second quarter score. Collins failed on a one-yard attempt of his own just before the break. On a 3rd-and-1 in the fourth, Harbaugh dialed up a Maxx Williams run. Collins is the Ravens' most-talented — and most-used — back, but he has some work to do before nailing down true every-week RB2 status.
Sep 13 - 11:57 PM

Joe Flacco completed 32-of-55 passes for 377 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Ravens' 34-23, Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Flacco also lost a fumble that essentially sealed the game in the fourth quarter. Utterly failing to feel the pressure as he rolled out to the sideline, Flacco got thunderously tomahawked from behind as he attempted to wind up for a bomb. It's the kind of mistake he's made far too often in his career. His first pick was an inexcusable throw into triple coverage. The second, a lame duck he tossed while getting hit. The biggest positive was Flacco's connection with speedster/deep threat John Brown, whom Flacco targeted 10 times. The Ravens host the Broncos in Week 3.
Sep 13 - 11:52 PM

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (left knee) has been diagnosed with a bone bruise.

Mosley is doubtful to return against the Bengals, but it's good news. Further testing could still be required, but it appears Mosley has avoided structural damage. Mosley has 10 days to get healthy for Week 3 against the Broncos.
Sep 13 - 10:17 PM

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley was carted from Thursday's game against the Bengals with a left knee injury.

An every-down, stat-sheet stuffing player, Mosley's loss would be massive for a team with little depth at inside linebacker. It would also be personally devastating for 26-year-old Mosley, who is in a contract year. The sides were reportedly not close during the summer.
Sep 13 - 8:39 PM

Ravens declared TE Hayden Hurst, QB Robert Griffin III, WR Jordan Lasley, CB Maurice Canady, DT Willie Henry, OL Jermaine Eluemunor and DT Zach Sieler inactive for Week 2 against the Bengals.

The No. 25 overall pick of the draft, Hurst remains week to week. The Ravens are using a committee of tight end pass catchers in his absence.
Sep 13 - 6:55 PM

Ravens placed RB Kenneth Dixon on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Dixon has missed 20-of-33 games at the NFL level and can add at least another eight to the list, as Dixon won't be eligible to come off I.R. until Week 11 at the earliest against the Bengals. RB De'Lance Turner has been added to the 53.
