Baltimore Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett completed 13-of-22 pass attempts for 113 yards, one touchdown and two picks in his second preseason start. What It Means: As the Ravens prepare for what could be a Week 1 without Joe Flacco (back), they let Mallett take the first team reps for the entirety of the first half Thursday night. In disappointing fashion, Mallett didn't do much with the opportunity. His ball placement was terrible and his turnover number could have been even higher given his play. Mallett has now completed just 55% of his passes while tallying 171 yards and 1...

For the second straight preseason, Ryan Mallett is being outplayed by the third-string quarterback

For the second straight preseason, Ryan Mallett is being outplayed by the third-string quarterback

Mallett has looked far from impressive two weeks in Ever since it was revealed that starting quarterback Joe Flacco would miss time due to a back injury, all eyes were on Ryan Mallett to perform and show he was ready if they needed him come Week 1. While the Baltimore Ravens expect Flacco to return Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Mallett was still asked to lead the team in the preseason, and to display why they re-signed him in the offseason as Flacco's backup. Unfortunately, through two games, Mallett has struggled. Against the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins, Mallett has...

Ravens' Joe Flacco (back) will not practice next week

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (back) will continue to sit out of practice next week. What It Means: The original timeline given on the injury was "day-to-day", but it has now been a month on the sidelines for Flacco. The team has already announced that he won't play in the preseason at all, but that he is expected to be ready for Week 1. Ryan Mallett has put together a pair of awful preseason performances, and the Ravens could be in trouble if Flacco is forced to miss any meaningful games. numberFire's models project Flacco to go 379/632 for 4,047 yards, 22.4...

Report: Joe Flacco will not practice this week

When will Baltimore’s franchise quarterback return? The Joe Flacco injury saga continues and yet again, it takes another mysterious turn. Harbaugh said Flacco's timeframe is not this week to return to practice.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) August 18, 2017 With Harbaugh saying Flacco's practice timeline isn't this week, that means at, at most, Flacco will get 2 wks or practice in before opener— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) August 18, 2017 In his post-game presser, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that Joe Flacco will not return to practice this week.

Ryan Mallett struggles again for Ravens

Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett may benefit from some more grade inflation, since the Ravens happen to be ahead on the scoreboard when he was finished for the night. Starting in place of the rehabbing Joe Flacco, Mallett struggled again for the Ravens. He was13-of-22 for 113 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions before being relieved [more]

Three predictions for Ravens preseason week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins

Three predictions for Ravens preseason week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins

With the Ravens second preseason contest set for Thursday night at 7:00 pm ET in Miami against the Dolphins, here are three predictions for the game. 1. Ryan Mallett shines with the first-team offense Yes, I predicted last week that Mallett would shine against the Redskins in his preseason debut. Obviously, he did the opposite. However, I am doubling down on my prediction and putting my faith, once again, in Mallett. With Joe Flacco out for the preseason, Mallett will have to step up and prove he is a serviceable backup. With Jeremy Maclin, Benjamin Watson and Mike Wallace all likely to...

Opinion: A dominant defense can still lead the Ravens to the playoffs if the cornerbacks remain healthy

Opinion: A dominant defense can still lead the Ravens to the playoffs if the cornerbacks remain healthy

A litany of unfortunate injuries to key Baltimore Ravens personnel has cast significant doubt on the team’s ability to improve upon their 17th ranked offense from last season. Several promising young players, including Kenneth Dixon, Crockett Gillmore, Alex Lewis and Nico Siragusa have suffered season ending injuries. Hopefully minor injuries to Joe Flacco, Breshad Perriman and most recently Ronnie Stanley have forced them to miss valuable practice time, further harming the offense’s chances of building chemistry before the regular season begins. Nonetheless, the Ravens have the makings...

Chris Simms’ power rankings has Ravens on the rise

The Baltimore Ravens have been a tough team to get a read on this preseason because they’ve sustained so many injuries, some of which have hindered their ability to fully showcase their potential. This could be said of a few other NFL teams, but with the Ravens it is especially true due to the absence of franchise quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco didn’t appear in last Thursday’s opener against Washington, but despite that, Bleacher Report NFL analyst Chris Simms remains very high on this team which he had already tabbed tenth in his previous power rankings. In fact, Simms bumped them up...

Ravens Make Move at QB; Ink Thad Lewis, Waive Dustin Vaughan

Ravens sign former 49ers quarterback

Not that one. The Baltimore Ravens have made another roster move at quarterback, this time actually signing a former San Francisco 49ers QB. No, not that one. The Ravens announced on Monday that they have waived quarterback Dustin Vaughan and signed free agent Thaddeus Lewis. The Ravens originally signed Vaughan to a reserve/future contract in January. This marks the third quarterback Baltimore has signed since July 28. Current starter Joe Flacco is sidelined with a back injury. He injured it during a workout leading up to training camp. The Ravens announced on Friday that an examination...

Ravens waive QB Dustin Vaughan, sign free agent Thaddeus Lewis

The most recent quarterback news for the Baltimore Ravens does not involve QB Joe Flacco, nor Colin Kaepernick. Rather, the Ravens have waived QB Dustin Vaughan and signed free agent QB Thaddeus Lewis. We have waived QB Dustin Vaughan and signed free agent QB Thaddeus Lewis.— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) August 14, 2017 The contract details haven’t been released, but I presume this to be another ‘camp-arm’ move. The Ravens don’t have money for any big-name players, and Thad Lewis brings a veteran presence for cheap. Thad Lewis has played all over the league over the past seven...

Tracking the Ravens training camp updates, 8/13

Back at it! The final stadium practice has ended, and the Ravens return today, to Owings Mills, Maryland. I expect a hot Sunday practice. With the offensive line working to become a unit, and no player on the defensive line wanting to become the odd man out, expect tough trench battles for the next few days. Yesterday, both Marlon Humphrey and Sheldon Price returned to the gridiron; they’ll both work themselves back into reps, fighting for the slot role, or even battling with Brandon Carr for CB2. Joe Flacco did not return to practice yesterday, but being day-to-day, I expect every...
