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.

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.

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.

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.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said RB Terrance West did a "great job" during the offseason program.

"I would say he's in the best shape of his life," Harbaugh said. "I think he's really done a good job with improving on this spring, and I can't wait to see him in training camp." Harbaugh's comments jibe with what beat reporters observed this spring. West faces an uphill climb to fantasy relevance in a loaded backfield, but it looks like he has the inside track on a roster spot.

Ravens first-round pick Ronnie Stanley will open training camp at left tackle.

It’s expected after Stanley worked there all offseason. Baltimore plans to plug in Stanley as Eugene Monroe’s replacement on Joe Flacco’s blind side. Rick Wagner will remain at right tackle.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Clifton Brown reports Kamar Aiken is the Ravens' No. 2 receiver heading into camp.

In a show of how confusing the receiver situation is in Baltimore, ESPN's Jamison Hensley listed Mike Wallace as the No. 2 receiver on Thursday. Steve Smith Sr. is the consensus No. 1, but that assumes he is healthy coming off an Achilles' tear at age 37. It is likely someone in the Ravens' receiving corps returns solid fantasy value this season, but it is basically impossible to pick who that will be at this point.
Jul 22 - 2:39 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley listed Ben Watson as the starter at tight end.

While the Ravens have questions throughout their entire offense, the tight end spot is the most confusing. After being signed to a two-year, $7 million deal in free agency, Watson probably enters camp as the starter, but he will face competition from Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams, and perhaps even Dennis Pitta. Unless someone clearly emerges, this will be a situation to avoid.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley listed Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace as the starting receivers.

Smith should be locked into one of the spots if he is healthy, but the inclusion of Wallace is more interesting. Although Wallace was signed to a two-year, $11.5 million deal in March, Kamar Aiken has gotten more buzz this offseason. Breshad Perriman (knee) should also be involved if he is able to come back healthy. Like seemingly every other position on offense, the Ravens have a lot of questions to answer at receiver during training camp.

Joe Flacco (ACL) is throwing without restrictions.

Flacco was held out of OTAs, but has been working with WR Kamar Aiken the last couple weeks. "He looks 100 percent to me," Aiken said. "Looks the exact same." Aiken’s comments fall in line with previous reports. Flacco should be full-go for the start of training camp.
Jul 20 - 7:04 PM

Ravens sixth-round rookie Keenan Reynolds is "further along" at receiver than the team anticipated at this point.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley calls Reynolds the "most intriguing rookie on the team" and expects him to get a shot to return punts and see snaps on offense. Reynolds was a triple-option quarterback at Navy and set an FBS record with 88 rushing touchdowns. He has a good shot to make the team.

Joe Flacco (ACL) reiterated he plans to participate in the first practice of training camp.

Flacco said the same thing in June, and nothing has happened in the interim to change his mind. The Ravens might try to take it slow with their franchise quarterback right out of the gate, but it now looks like he will see plenty of snaps in the preseason. He should easily be 100 percent before Week 1.
