Updating a previous item, Ravens placed RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) on active/PUP.

Taliaferro dealt with a foot injury during the offseason, but he was expected to be ready for camp. The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the foot did not respond to treatment as well as the training staff hoped. A fixture on the injury report through two years, Taliaferro is not a lock for the final roster.

Ravens fourth-round RB Kenneth Dixon limped off the practice field Thursday with a left leg injury, but he is expected to be fine.

Dixon landed awkwardly after being shoved out of bounds and had to be helped off the field. Coach John Harbaugh said the injury was just a "slight thing with the knee." There is a chance he is back on the field Friday.

Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (undisclosed) is not practicing on Thursday.

Normally a missed practice this early in camp would not be newsworthy, but Taliaferro spent way too much time on the training table during his first two years in the league. Fighting for a roster spot in a loaded backfield, he cannot afford to miss any more time. Taliaferro will need to beat out Terrance West to keep his job.

Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs (PUP, Achilles') said he is "close" to where he wants to be in his recovery.

"I can't be timid, but I've got to be smart," Suggs said. "It won't be long before I'll be off of it and out there practicing with the guys." With Elvis Dumervil (foot) also on the PUP to open camp, the Ravens should take it slow with their aging rushers. Suggs will be 34 in October, but he is just a year removed from a 12-sack season.

Justin Forsett expects to get the majority of carries this season.

"What’s running-back-by-committee?" Forsett joked. "I don’t understand that." Unfortunately for Forsett, the Ravens project as a committee this year, with Buck Allen spelling Forsett on pass downs. Forsett is entering his age-31 season and coming off an injury-shortened 2015, but says he still thinks he can be a 200 carry, 1,000-yard rusher. Baltimore's running back situation is a training camp storyline worth monitoring.

Ravens signed ILB Kavell Conner.

Conner was released from San Diego in March after playing just 187 snaps last year. He has starting experience and will add competition behind Zachary Orr and Arthur Brown. Second-round LB Kamalei Correa is also a candidate for snaps opposite C.J. Mosley.
Jul 27 - 6:02 PM

Joe Flacco (knee) suggested he could sit out the entire preseason.

Flacco is cleared for training camp, but the Ravens may not want to risk him to any setbacks. It's a minor concern in terms of him getting his timing down with receivers. Flacco should be fully healthy for Week 1.
Jul 27 - 4:24 PM

Mike Wallace failed the conditioning test to open Ravens' training camp.

He'll get another chance to pass it on Thursday. But until Wallace does pass, he won't be able to practice and could open camp on the active/NFI list. All in all, it's not a huge deal for a soon-to-be 30-year-old veteran, but hints Wallace may have developed some laziness during the summer break.
Jul 27 - 4:04 PM

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It's an indication that Pitta is indeed 100 percent or very close to it after appearing in just seven games since the end of the 2012 season. He'll be eligible to practice on Thursday. If Pitta is capable of becoming a contributor, the Ravens could field more two-tight end sets with him and Ben Watson on the field together. Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore would be the odd men out.
Jul 24 - 2:36 PM

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) avoided active/PUP to begin training camp.

Smith suffered a Lisfranc fracture in 2014. After struggling throughout 2015, Smith underwent another foot surgery this offseason, and will be ready for training camp. A declining Ravens defense badly needs Smith to recapture his previous shutdown form. A top-20 cover corner per Pro Football Focus' ratings in 2014, Smith slipped all the way to 89th among 118 qualified cornerbacks last season.
Jul 23 - 6:10 PM

Joe Flacco avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

Just as expected. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year, but his recovery progressed ahead of schedule and he resumed throwing without restrictions after OTAs. "He looks 100 percent to me," Kamar Aiken observed earlier this month. "Looks the exact same." Flacco isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he has a favorable early-season schedule and last year's Ravens led the NFL in pass attempts. Flacco is a sneaky bet to finish this year as a low-end QB1.
Jul 23 - 6:06 PM

Ravens placed RB Trent Richardson (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Richardson is recovering from a June scope. The Ravens could stash him on reserve/PUP to open the season. Richardson is behind Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Kenneth Dixon, and Terrance West on the depth chart.
Jul 23 - 4:10 PM

Ravens placed OLB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') on the active/PUP list.

It's an expected move. Suggs will likely sit out the entire preseason and is questionable for Week 1. Elvis Dumervil (foot) also opened training camp on PUP.
Jul 23 - 3:54 PM

Ravens placed WR Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') on the active/PUP list.

He's eligible to come off this list at any time, but will have to receive medical clearance first, before passing a conditioning test. Smith turned 37 in May and is coming off a ruptured Achilles' tendon. Beat writers seem to believe Smith will be ready for Week 1, but that will not be determined until late August.
Jul 23 - 3:50 PM

Ravens placed WR Breshad Perriman (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Perriman avoided reconstructive surgery, but doesn't have a set timetable to return. The Ravens expect him to be available "at some point" in training camp. Perriman should be considered questionable for Week 1.
