The Ravens placed six players on the physically unable to perform list Friday, five days before their first full team practice of training camp.
Running backs JK Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee), outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (Achilles tendon), left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle), cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) and safety R. Darius Washington (foot) are all out. Will start. PUP list, meaning they can attend team meetings and use team training and medical facilities but cannot practice.
Players may be removed from the PUP list at any time prior to the start of the regular season.
Dobbins, Edwards and Peters all tore their ACLs before the start of last season, part of a rash of injuries that led to the Ravens finishing 8-9 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2017.
“I’d say they’re all on schedule, but what’s the schedule?” Coach John Harbaugh said last month When asked about the status of Dobbins, Edwards and Stanley. “Knee injuries are a little difficult to say what the schedule really is. So, [if] You talk to JK. [Dobbins]He’s starting to run back today. [and] He was supposed to practice today, but he still has to work. [and] So does Gus [Edwards]. But they are both doing great. We’ll see how they look when they come back and all that.”
Last week, Dobbins tweeted. His recovery was going very well That he might not even start training camp on the PUP list. His tweet was in response to an NFL Network report that said the 2020 second-round pick was “no sure thing” to be ready for Week 1.
“I’m sure will be ready for Week 1,” Dobbins said.
Harbaugh said last month that Stanley’s left ankle is looking great and that the all-pro tackle’s mission is to “get in the best shape of his life and get ready to play football, and that’s what he’s working on.” Stanley has played just one game since suffering the injury on November 1, 2020, less than a week after he signed a five-year extension reportedly worth $112.9 million.
The Ravens hope Bowser, who tore his Achilles tendon during the regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, can return by the 2022 season opener on Sept. 11 against the New York Jets. In a recent video posted on social media, Bowser is shown doing agility work and moving well.
Washington, who signed as an undrafted free agent in 2021, was placed on injured reserve midway through last season after suffering a broken foot.
