Michael Campanaro caught 1-of-3 targets for 17 yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Campanaro flashed early in as the Ravens' slot receiver early in the season, but he had been sidelined by a thigh injury since Week 8. Now healthy, Campanaro will look to contribute in the playoffs. Campanaro is a better fit in the slot than current resident Marlon Brown, and he has a great chance to carve out a role in the Ravens' offense in 2015.

Bernard Pierce rushed six times for eight yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Pierce was stuffed twice at the goal line early in the game, and could get nothing going despite playing the worst run defense in the league. Expected to carry the load with Ray Rice suspended, Pierce was eventually beat out by journeyman back Justin Forsett and even lost work to the likes of Lorenzo Taliaferro and Fitzgerald Toussaint. Pierce's team-friendly contract will keep him will keep him on Baltimore's roster through the offseason, but the slow-footed back may need a solid summer to stick through final cuts.
Dec 28 - 7:00 PM

Steve Smith Sr. caught 8-of-12 targets for 90 yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Smith had one bad drop, but otherwise had a solid day after struggling through the second half of the season. Smith was targeted in the end zone once, but had to turn into a defender on a badly underthrown ball from Joe Flacco. Losing steam down the stretch, Smith is not a great bet to be a big contributor in the postseason.
Dec 28 - 4:40 PM

Torrey Smith caught 4-of-7 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Browns.

Struggling along with the rest of the Ravens' offense entering the fourth quarter, Smith put the team on his back in the final frame. Down 10-6 with time winding down, Smith ran past Joe Haden for a 53-yard gain to put the Ravens deep into Cleveland territory. Flacco then hit Smith for a 16-yard score on the very next play. The touchdown catch was Smith's career-high 11th of the season. After an up and down contract year, Smith showed how valuable he can be late in this game. Despite the strong showing, Smith could use a big postseason to improve his free agent market.
Dec 28 - 4:36 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 17 times for 119 yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Forsett was bottled up early by the Browns' league-worst rush defense, but he broke off several long runs to kill off the game for the Ravens. After hitting a wall the last two weeks, Forsett looked as quick and nimble as ever against the Browns. The Ravens need Forsett to perform well in the playoffs if they have any hope of escaping the first round.
Dec 28 - 4:29 PM

Joe Flacco completed 22-of-36 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' playoff-clinching win against the Browns.

Flacco and the Ravens' offense struggled mightily through three quarters of this contest, but Flacco completed two big passes to Torrey Smith midway through the fourth to give the Ravens the lead and then capped off another scoring drive with a two-yard pass to Kamar Aiken to put the game to bed. The two touchdown passes give Flacco a career-high 27 this season, and his 3,986 passing yards are also a career high. The Ravens will travel to face either the Bengals or Steelers in the first round of the playoffs next week.
Dec 28 - 4:25 PM

Ravens DT Timmy Jernigan exited Week 17 against the Browns with a left ankle injury.

Jernigan's ankle folded underneath him when he tried to shed a block early in the second half. He was carted to the locker room and appears unlikely to return. With Haloti Ngata suspended and Chris Canty inactive, the Ravens are now very thin along their defensive line.
Dec 28 - 2:42 PM

Ravens declared LT Eugene Monroe (ankle) inactive for Week 17 against the Ravens.

Starting RT Rick Wagner was placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury earlier in the week, meaning Baltimore will be without both their starting tackles against Cleveland. Baltimore also declared DE Chris Canty, S Brynden Trawick, TE Phillip Supernaw, DL Terrence Cody, DE Steve Means and CB Chris Greenwood inactive.
Dec 28 - 11:38 AM

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (ankle) is doubtful for Week 17 against the Browns.

The Ravens will be without both of their starting tackles after losing RT Rick Wagner to a Lisfranc injury in Week 16. This is a must-win game for Baltimore, so these are pretty major injury concerns.
Dec 26 - 2:51 PM

Ravens RT Rick Wagner (injured reserve) underwent Lisfranc foot surgery on Wednesday.

Wagner is staring at a 5-6 month recovery and should be ready in time for training camp next summer. As a sophomore, Wagner graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 right tackle at the time of his injury in Week 16. The Ravens will turn to UDFA James Hurst opposite LT Eugene Monroe the remainder of the year.
Dec 26 - 10:35 AM

The Ravens aren't expected to use the franchise tag on impending free agent Torrey Smith.

It would cost around $12 million to do so. Smith wants to remain in Baltimore, but is wrapping up a down year in terms of yards despite a career-best 10 touchdowns. He's battled drops and bouts of inconsistency. Joe Flacco isn't taking as many deep shots in first-year OC Gary Kubiak's offense. Smith is unlikely to be paid like a No. 1 receiver. He's more likely to get a Golden Tate deal.
Dec 26 - 9:26 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh "feels good" about LT Eugene Monroe's (foot/ankle) health.

Monroe was held out of Tuesday's practice, but has a shot at suiting up for Sunday's finale against the Browns. Heading into a must-win game, the Ravens desperately need Monroe to play with RT Rick Wagner (Lisfranc) done for the season.
Dec 23 - 2:43 PM

Ravens signed DE Steven Means off their practice squad.

Means takes the roster spot of RT Rick Wagner (IR, foot). He's a 2013 fifth-round pick that flamed out with the Lovie Smith Bucs regime.
Dec 23 - 12:43 PM

Ravens placed RT Rick Wagner (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Wagner's injury is of the dreaded "Lisfranc" variety. Wagner and LT Eugene Monroe both went down during Sunday's ugly loss at Houston. That leaves the entire offensive line in flux heading into Sunday's must-win regular season finale against the Browns. Wagner was a top-13 tackle in PFF's grades this season and started all 15 games. Despite the complicated nature of his injury, he should be ready for training camp.
Dec 23 - 12:41 PM

Justin Forsett continues to insist his ankle is "fine" and "ready to go."

Forsett is trying not to submit to injury as he wraps up an impressive season as the Ravens' feature back. But he sustained a knee tweak a couple weeks ago and keeps spraining an ankle. The latest roll of that ankle cost him the final nine minutes of the Week 16 loss at Houston. Expect Forsett to play in a dream matchup at home against the Browns' league-worst run defense Sunday, but anyone rostering him needs to know he's not at 100 percent. Fitzgerald Toussaint replaced Bernard Pierce as the No. 2 back last week.
