Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (shoulder) is practicing in full this week.
Yanda has sat out three of the last four games, but he got in a full session Wednesday and is back on the practice field Thursday, suggesting he did not suffer any setbacks. His return is imperative with LG Alex Lewis out several weeks and perhaps the season with a high-ankle sprain. Nov 17 - 11:40 AM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda's (shoulder) return will be a matter of pain tolerance.

In other words, the team is putting the onus on Yanda. LG Alex Lewis is out six weeks with a high-ankle sprain, so the Ravens can't afford Yanda to be sidelined any longer. He's missed three of the past four games. With Lewis sidelined, Vlad Ducasse or Ryan Jensen will play right guard if Yanda can't return Sunday.
Nov 15 - 1:13 PM

According to the Baltimore Sun, "there's not much optimism" that Ravens OGs Marshal Yanda (shoulder) and LG Alex Lewis (ankle) "will be ready to play anytime soon."

Yanda has been out for over a month, while Lewis went down in Thursday's win over the Browns. They are big losses for a struggling running game. The Ravens will turn to John Urschel at left guard and either Vlad Ducasse or Ryan Jensen at right guard. It's a situation to note for Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (shoulder) isn't expected to play Sunday.

It's another blow to an offensive line that's already down LT Ronnie Stanley. Baltimore claimed OL Billy Turner off waivers from Miami as interior line depth.
Oct 12 - 9:32 PM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda agreed to convert $5.3 million of his 2016 base salary into a signing bonus.

The move creates almost $4 million in cap relief for Baltimore. A third-round pick in 2007, Yanda has started all but two games for the Ravens since 2010. He will turn 32 in September.
Mar 9 - 9:31 AM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda's four-year extension is worth $32 million.

The deal includes a $9 million signing bonus and $17.8 million guaranteed. It makes Yanda the highest paid right guard in the league. The Ravens decision to lock up Yanda suggests contract-year LG Kelechi Osemele will be allowed to hit the open market.

Ravens signed RG Marshal Yanda to a four-year extension through 2019.

We're still waiting on the details. Yanda was in the final year of his contract. He's been PFF's top guard this season, a title he held last year as well.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 01:52:00 PM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is expected to command in excess of $22 million guaranteed on his next contract.

The Ravens want to extend Yanda, but have expressed concerns over long-term talks. One of the top right guards in the league, Baltimore could have difficulty re-signing Yanda if he pushes for Logan Mankins money ($30M guaranteed). The Ravens will likely have to pick between locking up Yanda or contract-year LG Kelechi Osemele. Osemele turns 26 in June; Yanda is going on age 31.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome recently expressed frustration over contract talks with RG Marshal Yanda.

The Ravens still hope to extend Yanda, but are reportedly losing patience in negotiations. Yanda has been one of the top offensive linemen in the league over the last five years and wants to finish his career in Baltimore. The Ravens could be better served extending LG Kelechi Osemele.

The Ravens still hope to extend contract-year RG Marshal Yanda.

LG Kelechi Osemele is also headed into the final year of his deal, and the Ravens didn't address guard in the draft until the fifth round. Although he's going on 31, Yanda graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 guard last season. Yanda has missed just two games over the past six years.

With OGs Marshal Yanda and Kelechi Osemele entering the final year of their deals, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said the team could target offensive guards in the draft.

"If some very good offensive linemen are there for us to draft, then we will take them," Newsome said. With several players set to be unrestricted free agents next offseason and Joe Flacco set for an extension, it will be difficult for Baltimore to retain both Yanda and Osemele. Osemele is five years younger than Yanda and played at an All-Pro level last season, but Yanda has been one of the top offensive linemen in the league over the last five years.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is a candidate for an extension.

Yanda is scheduled to count $8.45 million against the cap in the final year of his contract. The Ravens could create cap room with an extension and allow him to finish his career in Baltimore. 30-year-old Yanda was PFF's top-rated guard this past season. ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes a four-year, $30 million deal with a signing bonus in the range of $12 million could make sense for both sides.

John Eisenberg of the Ravens' official website mentions RG Marshal Yanda as a potential salary cap casualty.

However, Eisenberg made it clear that he doesn't believe the Ravens will cut Yanda. Baltimore had massive offensive-line issues in 2013, but Yanda wasn't part of the problem. The 29-year-old graded out as a top-16 guard at Pro Football Focus and is very athletic. GM Ozzie Newsome needs to address the center and tackle positions on his front-five unit. Cutting Yanda would only save the Ravens a little under $2 million against the 2014 salary cap.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

Yanda missed the Ravens' entire offseason program and will likely be eased into training camp. The Baltimore Sun considers Yanda, Haloti Ngata (knee) and Terrence Cody (hip) candidates to be placed on the active/PUP list.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

He's sitting out OTAs and minicamp, but will be ready for training camp. Despite myriad injuries entering year seven of his career -- he's undergone thigh and shoulder surgeries and two knee operations -- Yanda continues to play at an All-Pro level. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall guard in 2012.
