The Baltimore Ravens cannot catch a break. Baltimore recently announced that six players have been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list (P.U.P.) Terrell Suggs is still recovering from his season-ending Achilles injury as well as wide receiver, Steve Smith. According to coach Harbaugh, neither may see playing time in the preseason and hope is set on both being active for the start of the regular season.
Adding to the woes of the Ravens is Breshard Perriman. Perriman missed his rookie season with a knee injury and after recovering had reinjured again during offseason team activities. Perriman could see action sometime during training camp, but hope is all the Ravens can count on at this time.
Ravens running back Trent Richardson is also on the list with complications of the knee. Richardson underwent a knee scope last month. Also on that P.U.P list is outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (Foot surgery) and cornerback Jumal Rolle (Torn Achilles: likely to miss season).
The Ravens are faced with other injuries: Joe Flacco (Knee), CB’s Jimmy Smith(Foot) and Will Davis (Knee), WR Michael Campanaro (Calf injury), and TE Dennis Pita who has sustained a hip injury. None of these players had been placed on the P.U.P list as of now and should participate in camp.
Any player placed on the P.U.P. list can be activated at any time. However, if they remain on the list at the start of the regular season, they will have to miss the first six games of the season.
