Brandon Williams appears at Ravens practice, but remains out

Posted on 27 September 2017 by Luke Jones

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams appears to be moving closer to his return, but whether that comes against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday remains to be seen.

Despite being on the field and in uniform during the portion of Wednesday’s practice open to media, Williams was listed as a non-participant as he continues to recover from a foot injury sustained in Week 2. The fifth-year defensive lineman missed his first game since his rookie season in Sunday’s lopsided 44-7 loss to Jacksonville.

The Ravens were also without two tight ends during the practice session as veteran Benjamin Watson (calf) was a new addition to the injury report. Third-year tight end Maxx Williams remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the Sept. 17 win over Cleveland. With those two currently sidelined, tight end Ryan Malleck was re-signed to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that defensive end Brent Urban would miss the remainder of the season with a Lisfranc injury in his foot. Urban was officially placed on injured reserve Wednesday afternoon, creating the need for the likes of Bronson Kaufusi and Chris Wormley to emerge in his place.

To take Urban’s place on the 53-man roster. Freeny, a sixth-year veteran, was most recently with New England and has appeared in 62 career games in his NFL career.

Meanwhile, the Steelers held six players out of their Wednesday practice, a list that included wide receiver Martavis Bryant (illness) and former Maryland defensive back Sean Davis (ankle). Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Le’Veon Bell were both given the day off.

Below is Wednesday’s full injury report:

BALTIMORE
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: CB Jaylen Hill (thigh), TE Benjamin Watson (calf), DT Brandon Williams (foot), TE Maxx Williams (ankle)

PITTSBURGH
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: RB Le’Veon Bell (non-injury), WR Martavis Bryant (illness), S Sean Davis (ankle), G Ramon Foster (thumb), S Michael Mitchell (hamstring), QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: LB Bud Dupree (shouler), TE Jesse James (shoulder)
FULL PARTICIPATION: OT Marcus Gilbert (hamstring), DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps), LB T.J. Watt (groin)

Adeboyejo headlines early list of Ravens practice-squad signings

Posted on 03 September 2017 by Luke Jones

The Ravens announced six signings to their practice squad on Sunday, a group composed exclusively of players who were with them during the preseason.

Wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, fullback Ricky Ortiz, linebacker Boseko Lokombo, tight end Ryan Malleck, offensive lineman Maurquice Shakir, and cornerback Reggie Porter were all re-signed to the developmental squad a day after being waived from the preseason roster. Baltimore still has four open spots to fill on its practice squad with the team not returning to work until Tuesday.

An undrafted free agent from Mississippi, Adeboyejo turned some heads with his play-making ability early in training camp, but those flashes never carried over to preseason games. The 6-foot-3 receiver was also slowed by a knee injury over the last couple weeks, but he brings some upside with more seasoning.

Adeboyejo caught three passes for 31 yards in the preseason.

The re-signing of Ortiz wasn’t surprising after the Ravens did not keep a traditional fullback on their 53-man roster. Rookie defensive lineman Patrick Ricard has received quite a few reps at fullback and as a blocking tight end, but it remains to be seen whether he will permanently move to that side of the ball.

The Oregon State product had three carries for eight yards and caught four passes for 21 yards in the preseason.
