The Ahtletic's Jeff Zrebiec considers John Brown the "standout" of Ravens camp.

Per Zrebiec, "nobody made more plays than Brown during training camp." Zrebiec is echoing coach John Harbaugh, who singled Brown out for praise on Wednesday. Brown has proven to be an electrifying playmaker when healthy, but he spent much of the past two years battling complications from his sickle-cell trait. If Brown is beyond that this season, he will be an ideal deep target for big-armed Joe Flacco, and quite possibly the Ravens' No. 1 receiver.

Ravens WR Quincy Adeboyejo (leg surgery) will begin the regular season on the reserve/PUP list, costing him six games.

The same is true of CB Jaylen Hill (knee) and LB Bam Bradley. All three players will likely either spend the entire year on the reserve list or be cut loose with injury settlements after they miss the mandatory six games.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said John Brown "has been better than we expected."

Brown has earned daily praise for his work to this point in camp, and Joe Flacco credited the receiver for his renewed success throwing down the field. Health will remain a question for Brown, but it has become clear he will be a fantasy factor if he can stay on the field. He is a great late-round flier.

Joe Flacco credited John Brown for his renewed success throwing deep during training camp.

Flacco has struggled down the field in recent years, but he has been having success against the Ravens' stout secondary all camp. "I really think that’s a credit to [Brown] and just how well he can get off the ball and get going vertical and put those DBs in a bad position," Flacco said. "He’s just been doing a great job of beating guys off the line and showing guys what he’s made of." Brown's career was derailed by injuries in Arizona, but he is healthy now and earning daily praise in camp. He is a great late-round flier.

Lamar Jackson completed 7-of-18 passes for 118 yards in the Ravens' second preseason game, adding five rushes for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Jackson's touchdown was a nine-yard scramble where he Houdini'd his way out of a collapsing pocket and slipped a tackle at the four-yard line. It was impressive, though Jackson is now just 11-of-28 (39.2 percent) for 151 yards (5.39 YPA) passing through his first two exhibition games. His next preseason opportunity comes against the Colts in 11 days.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec believes Kenneth Dixon is on the roster bubble.

Dixon was expected to compete for the No. 2 job behind Alex Collins, but he missed several practices with a hamstring injury and left practice early on Tuesday with another health issue. The Ravens do not have much behind Collins and Buck Allen, so it would be a surprise if Dixon is actually cut. Still, he needs to get healthy.

NFL reinstated Ravens TE Darren Waller from indefinite suspension.

The converted wideout caught 10 passes in 2016. He has 12 career grabs since being the No. 204 overall pick of the 2015 draft. Going on 26, Waller will be a long-shot to crack the Ravens' re-made tight end corps and 53-man roster.

Kenneth Dixon has resumed practicing at Ravens camp.

He missed about a week with a hamstring injury, falling behind in his competition for backup duties with Buck Allen. Dixon still has time to make up ground, but he must stay off the shelf after missing the entire 2017 season.
Aug 4 - 5:35 PM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (active/PUP) was activated Saturday.

Yanda passed his physical and is available to practice whenever the team sees fit. He was initially thought to be on the active/PUP list because of the ankle injury he suffered in Week 2 last season, but the cause is actually related to a January shoulder operation. Given this news, Yanda should be ready for Week 1.

Playing the entire second half, Lamar Jackson completed 4-of-10 passes for 33 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Hall-of-Fame Game, adding eight rushes for 25 additional yards.

Jackson was playing with deep reserves against other deep reserves but failed to stand out. His touchdown was a simple quick out to fellow first-rounder Hayden Hurst. His pick was an ill-advised, poorly-driven pass to the inside of the numbers that needed to be out. It wasn't a performance worth drawing any sweeping conclusions over, but it's certainly not going to place any pressure on Joe Flacco, who was already entrenched for Week 1, anyways. The Ravens will take on the Rams next Thursday night.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley writes Michael Crabtree "has been a popular target" during red-zone drills so far in camp.

This is about as far from a surprise as possible, but it is still worth noting. Crabtree has converted a solid 42.2 percent of his career targets inside the 10 into touchdowns, and he scored 13 red-zone touchdowns in three seasons with the Raiders. He should be Joe Flacco's No. 1 target in the scoring area this season.

Kenneth Dixon (hamstring) did not practice Monday.

It is the third missed practice in a row for Dixon after he tweaked his hamstring late last week. There is no indication the injury is serious, but it is a bad start for a player who sat out all of last season. Dixon is competing with Buck Allen for touches behind Alex Collins.
Jul 30 - 1:31 PM

A "longtime Ravens observer" told NBC's Peter King that Joe Flacco is having "far and away" the best training camp of his career.

King was impressed by the practice he saw, noting Flacco made "six beautiful medium-to-deep throws right on the money in team drills." Baltimore has not even played their first preseason game, but every report about Flacco has been glowing so far in camp. Lamar Jackson's shadow is large, but it is looking like Flacco is up to the challenge.
Jul 30 - 11:54 AM

Ravens WR John Brown continued to 'stand out' among the team's receivers Saturday.

Brown has ample opportunity to flourish for the Ravens, who have the most available air yards (2,829) and targets (332) to replace from last season. Unfortunately, Brown has only started in 11 games the past two seasons and hasn't truly been healthy since posting a 65-1,003-7 receiving line in 2015. If healthy, he remains one of fantasy's best late-round fliers.
Jul 28 - 11:18 AM

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes the Ravens "remain [Joe] Flacco’s team."

Zrebiec acknowledges Lamar Jackson has impressed at times, but he is still "a work-in-progress with his arm." More importantly, Baltimore's plan has always been to let Jackson develop for a year or two behind Flacco. "If Jackson starts a game at quarterback this season," Zrebiec writes, "it will almost surely be because Flacco is either hurt or the team’s season has become a lost cause and they start evaluating for the future." Things can certainly change, but it looks like Flacco is locked into the starting job for now.
