The Baltimore Ravens have been one of the teams in the NFL to have already suffered a key season ending injury as TE Dennis Pitta was lost for the season due to a fractured/dislocated hip. Yesterday Head Coach John Harbaugh provided an update on other injured Ravens so far in training camp.
The All Pro guard is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and is currently on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list. Yanda has yet to participate in a full team training camp practice, but has been taking part in the morning walk throughs with the team and is on track to be able to take part in full contact practices during training camp.
Harewood hasn't practiced since last week due to a knee injury, but saw a doctor regarding the knee. Harbaugh stated that Harewood got an injection in the knee and "he should be ready to go when he gets back tomorrow (today)."
The rookie defensive back left practice yesterday due to a strained left shoulder, but it is not considered to be serious and Harbaugh said he should be back on the practice field soon.
Unfortunately for the Ravens and McClain, there is no new updates in regards to his status as he is still on the PUP list and awaiting medical clearance. He is still recovering form the spinal cord contusion he suffered last December and Baltimore could certainly use him in the middle linebacking core.
Outside of Pitta and McClain, all other key players have remained injury free or remain on track to be ready to go come week 1. We are exactly one week away from the first preseason game as Baltimore will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on August 8th. Ravens fans will get to see some of the names they have been reading about in action in seven days.
