Breshad Perriman (knee) has missed four straight Ravens practices.

Perriman is nursing a bruise on his knee. The first-round pick remains the favorite to open the season as Baltimore's starting X receiver opposite Steve Smith Sr., but still needs to secure that role on the practice field and in preseason games. Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown are also vying for snaps.

Sources tell the Baltimore Sun S Matt Elam will need surgery to repair his torn biceps.

Elam sustained the injury while trying to make a tackle during Saturday's practice. The No. 32 overall pick in 2013 has scuffled in his career and lost the strong safety job to Will Hill, but the Ravens were counting on him to provide quality depth this year. Instead, he'll be placed on IR shortly and rehab ahead of 2016, the final year of his rookie contract.

The Ravens are "not optimistic" about S Matt Elam's biceps injury.

The team hasn't gotten MRI results yet, but their medical team likely fears a tear, which would cost Elam all of 2015. Depending on how much the Ravens value Elam -- who has been a huge disappointment through two NFL seasons -- they could consider using the I.R./designated for return tag on him, costing Elam the first eight games of the season. Because Elam practiced in camp, he is not eligible to be placed on the reserve/PUP list.

Breshad Perriman's bruised knee may keep him out longer than expected though the Ravens don't consider it a long-term injury.

Perriman suffered the injury on the first day of training camp. The first-round pick struggled with drops at minicamp but should be a productive fantasy contributor when he finally gets healthy. He's filling Torrey Smith's old role as Joe Flacco's primary deep threat alongside veteran Steve Smith Sr.

Ravens S Matt Elam is headed for an MRI on his injured biceps.

The Ravens are afraid he may have torn it. A full tear would likely require season-ending surgery though a partial tear might only keep him out 3-to-6 weeks. Elam had been competing with Will Hill for the starting strong safety position. The 23-year-old worked hard to get in shape this offseason, cutting his body fat to eight percent while weighing in at a career-low 202 pounds.

Ravens OC Marc Trestman promised Baltimore's offense will remain rooted in the running game.

Replacing balanced-to-run-heavy OC Gary Kubiak, Trestman has a pass-happy background but is insistent on keeping Kubiak's scheme based on the personnel in place. "Ravens football starts with the running game, and that doesn't mean you're not going to throw the ball," Trestman said. "But the emphasis here is we want to be a great running football team, and we have the players to do that. So, that's where we start." The Ravens have a top-five offensive line and will keep Kubiak's zone-running scheme, in which Justin Forsett flourished last season, ranking fifth in the NFL in rushing yards.

Steve Smith Sr. expects to remain a full-time player in the Ravens' offense this season.

Back in May, coach John Harbaugh mentioned reducing Smith's snaps in an effort to save on his wear and tear at age 36. Doing so is idealistic and ultimately unrealistic for the Ravens, who are otherwise counting on major roles for rookies Breshad Perriman and Maxx Williams in their pass-catching corps. "I think it's going to be hard for both of us to do that," Smith said Friday. "Because we're both competitors and we both want to win." Smith is a solid fantasy WR3 pick this year.

Breshad Perriman is "day to day" after suffering a knee injury at Ravens camp on Thursday.

The Ravens say Perriman's knee injury is a bruise. With Perriman on the shelf at Friday's practice, fill-in Kamar Aiken dropped two passes. Perriman figures to be back on the practice field by no later than early next week.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb has resumed practicing at training camp.

Webb failed his conditioning test on the first day of camp, but should be all systems go moving forward. He'll be the Ravens' starting left corner this year, with Jimmy Smith on the right side and Kyle Arrington in the slot.
Jul 31 - 1:48 PM

Ravens C Jeremy Zuttah (hip surgery) is full-go for training camp.

Zuttah went under the knife in February, and progressed without setbacks. Heading into his age-29 season, Zuttah graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 17 overall center in 2014.
Jul 30 - 2:19 PM

Ravens RT Rick Wagner (Lisfranc) is full-go for the start of training camp.

Wagner missed the Ravens' entire offseason program, but is ready to rock for camp. A 2013 fifth-rounder, Wagner came on as one of the league's better right tackles last season.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb has failed his conditioning test, and will not practice until he passes.

"It’s always a big deal," coach John Harbaugh said of Webb failing his test. Webb had been a candidate for release before taking a pay cut. Headed into his age-30 season, Webb got off to a slow start in 2014 as he battled a back injury, but finished the year on a higher note. He should pass his test in a few days. He's starting opposite Jimmy Smith this season.
Jul 30 - 1:39 PM

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (wrist) has been fully cleared for contact.

Mosley, the 2014 DROY runner up, went under the knife shortly after last season ended. Coming off a 133-tackle campaign, he's safe to draft as a strong LB1 in IDP formats.

Ravens rookie WR Breshad Perriman ran with the starters as training camp opened Thursday.

The WR-needy Ravens didn't use the No. 26 overall pick on Perriman to have him sit. Although Kamar Aiken soaked up plenty of first-team reps during the spring, Perriman is the prototypical size/speed specimen that will have to fall flat on his face to lose the job. With only 36-year-old Steve Smith and unproven tight ends as competition for targets, Perriman has value at his ninth-round ADP.
Jul 30 - 10:34 AM

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (quad) was a full participant for the start of training camp.

Campanaro suffered a "slight quad tear" during May OTAs. A nifty but diminutive slot prospect, Campanaro will spend the summer battling for sub-package receiver snaps behind Steve Smith Sr. and likely starter Breshad Perriman.
