Shark Bites for Baltimore Ravens 2019 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Shark Bites

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We didn't see him get nicked up last week, so this might just be a rest day for a guy who's carried 40 times over the past 2 games. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Ravens plan to start QB Lamar Jackson for Sunday’s game at Atlanta, per Mike Garafolo of NFL.com. The news isn’t surprising, as Joe Flacco hasn’t gained medical clearance from his hip injury. Jackson’s run hot and cold as a passer but owns a whopping 190 rushing yards through 2 starts. He’ll carry top-15 potential into the road matchup.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a thigh injury. After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Jefferson returned for a limited Thursday workout and then returned to full participation Friday. We'd bet on him playing but will confirm his status Sunday morning.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been designated as 1 of the team's return-from-IR players and has been cleared to practice. He's been sidelined since hurting his knee in the season opener. It's unclear how close Dixon is to being game ready. But when he gets back out there, he'll be returning to a backfield with Alex Collins, Buck Allen and Ty Montgomery. Dixon isn't worth a fantasy roster spot right now.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He sat out the week's 1st 2 practices before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll check Jefferson's status Sunday morning.

The Ravens will be without their top cover man when they face the Saints today. CB Marlon Humphrey (quad) is inactive. That can only be good news for New Orleans WRs Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith, though the matchup remains tough.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He left Thursday's practice early with a quad injury that then kept him out Friday. HC John Harbaugh told The Baltimore Sun on Friday, "We'll just see how it goes at this point." Humphrey is Baltimore's best cover man and would hurt the coverage with his absence. We'll check on his status Sunday afternoon, ahead of the 4:05 ET kickoff.

Ravens CB Brandon Carr (knee) and OLB Za'Darius Smith (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Browns. Each entered the day questionable. Baltimore also gets top CB Jimmy Smith back after a season-opening 4-game suspension. This remains an upside team D even on the road today.

11:10am EDT 10/7/18

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is active for today’s game against the Browns. It’s unclear how big a role the rookie will play in his debut. Hurst would be a flier in fantasy lineups today.

The Ravens expect rookie TE Hayden Hurst (foot) to play Sunday against the Browns "and even start," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll watch to see the 1st-round pick's role in his return, but there are TE targets available. Maxx Williams, Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle have combined for 41 targets -- a 23.4% share -- all falling between 12 and 16 looks so far.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Browns. We're expecting him to make his debut in this one but will find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Hurst would be a flier in Week 5 fantasy lineups, but he could quickly become a viable spot-start option.

Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (knee) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Steelers. They're good to go if you were waiting for either as an IDP starter.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Steelers. He returned to practice this week and might be eyeing a Week 5 debut.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas left the field on a cart against the Cardinals on Sunday after suffering a left leg injury. We'll await further details.

Update: Thomas fractured his left leg and will miss the rest of the season.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Steelers after a limited week of practice. It’s unclear if he’s ready to make his NFL debut. Hurst shouldn’t be in your Week 4 fantasy plans but could quickly emerge as a spot-start option.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst practiced on Wednesday for the 1st time since undergoing surgery in late August to repair a stress fracture in his foot. It's unclear if the rookie will play against the Steelers on Sunday night, but he's clearly making progress. Hurst seemed set to play a significant role in Baltimore's passing game before that injury. And Ravens TEs have accounted for 22.7% of the team's targets so far. Hurst could become a spot-start option later this season.

3:09pm EDT 9/12/18

The Ravens have placed RB Kenneth Dixon on IR with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's season opener. It's unclear if he's a candidate to return in 8 weeks, but he's not worth stashing on any redraft rosters. Baltimore moves forward with Alex Collins in the lead role and Buck Allen handling pass-catching duties.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon injured his knee late in Sunday's win over the Bills, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. We don't have any other details yet, but Zrebiec adds that "the expectation is he'll miss some time." Dixon has been unable to stay healthy as a pro and isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. His absence leaves Alex Collins and Buck Allen as Baltimore's healthy RBs.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is out for Sunday’s opener against the Bills. No surprise here. Hurst had surgery on August 24 to repair a stress fracture in his foot and was slapped with a 3-4 week timetable for return. The short end of that timetable would give him a shot to play next week, but a Week 3 debut for the rookie seems more realistic. There’s no Ravens TE worth using in fantasy lineups this week.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Seahawks S Earl Thomas plans to report to the team Wednesday. Given the sparse depth at safety and Thomas' ability, we'd bet on him immediately regaining his starting job -- assuming he proves physically ready. Seattle's defense remains difficult to like, however, with Thomas returning 4 days before the season and so many other pieces gone through the offseason. We're not adjusting any Broncos passing-game pieces down on this news. For the season, of course, Thomas' presence should help the Seahawks' pass D. We'll see what the refurbished unit looks like on whole.
