Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb is completely healthy entering training camp.

Injuries have derailed what was once a promising career for Webb. Since bursting onto the scene in 2011, Webb has dealt with a torn ACL, back injury and groin issues the last three seasons. Finally healthy, the Ravens are relying on Webb and RCB Jimmy Smith to shore up a pass defense that struggled in 2014.

Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken and rookie Breshad Perriman all saw snaps as the No. 2 receiver during minicamp.

Perriman is expected to win the job, but both Aiken and Brown should have an important role in the offense. Brown's role could come in the red zone, where he was surprisingly not targeted once last season after converting seven of 14 red-zone looks in 2013.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh is "optimistic" RT Rick Wagner (Lisfranc) will be ready for training camp.

Wagner missed OTAs and minicamp. He finished as one of the league’s better right tackles prior to going down last year, grading as a top-ten pass blocker by PFF. Wagner will be seven months removed from surgery for the start of camp.

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

Zuttah was limited to individual drills at mandatory minicamp. He hasn’t had any setbacks from his February clean-up. Zuttah's Week 1 status isn't in doubt.

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (wrist) expects to be full-go for training camp.

Mosley missed the entire offseason program after undergoing wrist surgery. The DROY runner-up to Aaron Donald should be fine for his every-down workload.

Joe Flacco said second-year WR Jeremy Butler was "incredible" at this week's minicamp.

Ravens receivers coach Bobby Engram shared the same sentiment, describing Butler's play as "unbelievable." Butler spent his rookie season sidelined by a shoulder injury. At 6'2/224, 24-year-old Butler has size to create mismatches in the slot. He's still a major long shot for any fantasy relevance.
Jun 18 - 7:45 PM

Ravens RCB Jimmy Smith (Lisfranc surgery) is close to 100 percent.

Smith has been limited during OTAs and minicamp. After signing him to a four-year extension, the Ravens expect Smith to be full-go for training camp.
Jun 17 - 7:11 PM

Ravens first-round WR Breshad Perriman had four drops on the opening day of minicamp.

The Ravens talked up Perriman’s pass-catching at OTAs, but his drop issues are starting to resurface. "Just really paying attention, getting too tired and really not focusing," Perriman said. "I don’t really make excuses. They should have been caught." Drops were Perriman’s biggest flag going into the draft and could carry over into the regular season. Perriman is being counted on to play the high-volume X role under Marc Trestman.

Dennis Pitta (hip) hasn't been cleared to participate in this week's minicamp.

Pitta is trying to come back from two separate dislocations and fractures of his hip. We're not holding our breath on Pitta making any 2015 impact.

Ravens DC Dean Pees said S Matt Elam is "having his best camp."

The Ravens have been talking up Elam’s conditioning this offseason. He’s playing faster and with better pursuit, but there are still concerns over his cover skills and open-field tackling. Elam led Baltimore with 16 missed tackles last year. Will Hill remains the heavy favorite to start opposite FS Kendrick Lewis.

The Baltimore Sun suggests Kamar Aiken is a legitimate competitor for the Ravens' No. 2 receiver job across from Steve Smith.

His competition is first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman. The Sun also leaves the door open for Aiken to serve as a third wide receiver, "or splitting time with Marlon Brown" behind Smith and Perriman. Our money is on Perriman winning the job, but we wouldn't entirely sleep on Aiken. Aiken is running with the first-team offense at spring practices, where he's "executed a series of acrobatic sideline catches and flashed speed on deep routes for touchdowns."

Second-round TE Maxx Williams said the Ravens' playbook is completely different than anything he saw at Minnesota.

"It’s just a whole different scheme," he said. "In Minnesota, we were going to run power all day and just run play action. That’s all we did unless we had a drop-back. For me, it’s really just kind of learning a brand new playbook." It's just another reminder of the steep challenge Williams faces as a rookie tight end trying to learn blocking and receiving assignments. While Williams has a fairly high long-term ceiling, he's a poor bet to make much noise outside of the red zone and third downs in year one. Williams is merely a TE2 flier.
Jun 11 - 1:50 PM

Ravens DC Dean Pees said second-year DE Brent Urban is in the mix to start.

"When you see him out there, it’s not hard to find him," Pees said. "I really think he was poised to be in a position last year to play a lot and be in that rotation, and I see him in the same situation now. He’s going to be a contender for a starting job." Urban is fully healthy after missing his entire rookie season. He's competing at five technique with Chris Canty, who rarely plays on passing downs. At the very least, Urban should see heavy rotational snaps.
Jun 10 - 6:37 PM

Ravens OC Marc Trestman called first-round pick Breshad Perriman a "quick learner" who has an impressive "understanding of the game."

Perriman has been typecast as a raw, drop-prone, straight-line burner in some circles, but Trestman says that isn't the case. "We really liked what we saw on tape, obviously," said Trestman. "And what we’re getting is a guy who is continually improving. He has a good understanding of the game. He’s not just a fast guy, he’s a smart guy." Per beat writer Aaron Wilson, Perriman's "hands have been solid so far" after he dropped eight passes at UCF last season. Perriman should open the year as the bookend to Steve Smith Sr.
Jun 9 - 1:07 PM

Ravens first-round pick Breshad Perriman hasn't dropped a pass since rookie camp.

Perriman dropped eight passes at UCF last season, but caught the ball cleanly throughout OTAs. If Perriman keeps his fundamentals in order, the 21-year-old has the size and speed to be an immediate upgrade on Torrey Smith.
