  Ravens | Bernard Pierce drops weight    Sun Jul 27, 08:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce said he weighed 248 pounds after he underwent shoulder surgery this offseason but currently weighs 222 pounds.

Footballguys view: Pierce looked sluggish last year, so the lower weight could help him be more explosive. He'll be the lead back for the Ravens while Ray Rice serves his two-game suspension.

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (undisclosed) left practice Saturday, July 26, with a team doctor.

Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (undisclosed) ran off the field under his own power for treatment of an injury early in practice Friday, July 25, and hasn't returned. The injury didn't appear serious.

Footballguys view: Early days of camp bring early minor injuries. That's what this appears to be at least, so this isn't a worry, especially as he came off under his own power.

  Ravens | Will Hill signs    Fri Jul 25, 10:37 AM

The Baltimore Ravens signed free-agent FS Will Hill (AFL) to an undisclosed deal. He's suspended for the first six games.

Footballguys view: Much like the New England Patriots and Brandon Browner, this is a long-term investment. Hill was a great safety last season and put together some nice fantasy points with 77 tackles. But while it is high reward for the Ravens, it is also high risk as this suspension was for his third suspension since entering the NFL. Another one could put him out for a very long time.

  Ravens | Ray Rice update    Thu Jul 24, 06:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice will be docked an additional game check fine based on his 2013 salary of $1 million, not based on his 2014 salary of $4 million. That comes out to a $58,823 fine instead of a $235,294 fine, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Footballguys view: Putting the "slappy" in slap on the wrist.

  Ravens | Aaron Ross expected to miss the year    Thu Jul 24, 01:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens CB Aaron Ross (Achilles') is expected to miss the entire season with an torn Achilles' tendon.

Footballguys view: The former first-round pick will not contribute anything to the Ravens this year. He was a solid fallback plan if younger corners like Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson had trouble living up to nickel and dime roles. Ross only played four games last year and was signed to basically a veteran minimum deal, so the Ravens couldn't have been counting on him for that much.

  Ravens | Ray Rice suspended two games    Thu Jul 24, 10:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the season, according to sources. The announcement is expected Thursday, July 24.

Footballguys view: This would be a net win for his fantasy draft stock, as his sixth-round ADP seems to assume a longer suspension. This would also shorten the window for Bernard Pierce to assert control over the backfield in the first two games against the Steelers and Bengals. There is a larger discussion of whether this punishment was appropriate considering the nature of the incident and longer suspensions for offense that might be seen as less severe (or even activities that are legal in some parts of the country). Hopefully the public reaction to this will cause Roger Goodell to re-examine the NFL's "justice system".

  Ravens | Steve Smith impressing    Wed Jul 23, 05:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith's hands have impressed Ravens QB Joe Flacco. 'Just his natural ability to catch the ball with his hands,' Flacco said. 'He catches everything with his hands, and he does a great job doing it.'

Footballguys view: Smith is not the same player he used to be, but that same chip on his shoulder is still there. We'll see what he can do with his new team as Smith is likely to start on the outside opposite Torrey Smith. His current ADP is WR55 (12.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Crockett Gillmore misses practice    Wed Jul 23, 12:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (illness) sat out practice Tuesday, July 22, because of the flu. He is feeling better Wednesday, July 23, and is scheduled to take his conditioning test.

Footballguys view: Gillmore is a talented all-purpose rookie tight end who will compete for a backup spot this year. The team has Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels in front of him on the depth chart.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco has high expectations    Tue Jul 22, 07:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco expects the team to operate at a high level despite learning a new offense. Flacco said the team needs to quickly correct the mistakes they make and keep them from occurring again.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see what the Ravens offense looks like this year. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak knows how to craft and effective offense featuring a solid ground game and play-action passing. Flacco has new weapons around him and could be more productive than some think. Fantasy owners in most leagues will see Flacco go undrafted as his current ADP is outside the top 23.

  Ravens | Terrence Cody's return unknown    Tue Jul 22, 04:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody's (hip) return does not have a set date. Head coach John Harbaugh said he is pleased with Cody's progress, however.

Footballguys view: Mount Cody has been a disappointment as a pro so far. He has to get healthy first before attempting to make a better impression this year.

  Ravens | Bernard Pierce fully cleared    Tue Jul 22, 04:23 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce said he has been fully cleared following his rotator cuff surgery in the offseason. Pierce also said he is down to 223 pounds.

Footballguys view: Pierce should be the primary backup behind Ray Rice. If (when) Rice is suspended by the league, Pierce will fill in as the team's starter. Pierce is a big, tough runner who can wear down opponents as the game goes on.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco more comfortable    Tue Jul 22, 04:12 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he's become more comfortable in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense.

Footballguys view: Kubiak knows how to craft a quality offense. He'll make Flacco comfortable with play-action passing and multiple options on each play. Flacco has a current ADP out of the top 23 quartebacks. Put him on your waiver wire speed dial, and monitor him in the preseason to see if he looks better than people expect.

It was presumed that Baltimore Ravens FS Terrence Brooks would be the front-runner for the starting free safety job after being selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. However, Brooks did not see time with the first or second teams in the offseason. FS Darian Stewart took most of the reps at free safety, and it appears it is his job to lose in training camp and the preseason.

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett will be ready for his opportunity if/when RB Ray Rice is suspended. Forsett said he has to be prepared and wants to prove himself when his number is called.

Footballguys view: Keep this name in mind. Forsett has experience in the Gary Kubiak system from their days working together in Houston. He'll back up Bernard Pierce if (when) Ray Rice is suspended.
