Head coach John Harbaugh said he is pleased with Terrence Cody's (hip) progress, but there is no timetable for his return.

Cody will be on the PUP list to start training camp and could be activated at any time. Once healthy, he will return to his backup role for the Ravens.

Joe Flacco says he's gaining a comfort level with Gary Kubiak's offense entering training camp. 

I'd sure hope so considering Flacco is the guy in Baltimore. Obviously Flacco is learning a new playbook, but that should be something that he picks up rather easily. He's a QB-2 headed into fantasy drafts next month.

Bernard Pierce said he's fully cleared medically after offseason rotator cuff surgery.

This is going to be one heck of a camp for the Ravens this year as Pierce and Ray Rice will compete for touches in the Baltimore backfield. If you're targeting either for whatever your reason may be, then you're going to need to pay close attention here. Rice, if healthy and out of legal issues, is expected to bee the favorite, but Pierce stands a very good chance at eating into quite a number of carries this year.

Ravens announce that NT Terrence Cody has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list.

Cody is still recovering from offseason hip surgery, but is still expected to be ready for camp when it opens. He's been a relative disappointment through his first three years as a back-up defensive lineman, but the Ravens still saw something in him...enough to warrant a one-year deal. He's likely to fill a similar role this season.

It was presumed that Baltimore Ravens FS Terrence Brooks would be the front-runner for the starting free safety job. However, Brooks did not see time with the first or second teams in the offseason. FS Darian Stewart took most of the reps at free safety.

It was assumed Brooks was taken in the third round of this year's NFL Draft to be the team's future at the free safety position, but until he starts seeing reps with the first team it is hard to believe he has adapted to the next level. Some players take longer to develop than others, so the Ravens will likely take it slow with Brooks in the early going, although he is certainly the most talented player of the group.

Baltimore Ravens OT Ricky Wagner is expected to start at right tackle, replacing the departed OT Michael Oher (Titans). If Wagner does not live up to expectations, OTs Ryan Jensen and Kelechi Osemele might still be options.

Although Michael Oher never lived up to his full potential, he leaves a huge gap on the right side of the Ravens offensive line. After doing an adequate job filling in when Oher was injured a season ago, Wagner has proven he can get the job done making him the front-runner for the opening. HE will still have to prove himself, but unless he has a major meltdown he can count on seeing the majority of the snaps for the Ravens in 2014.

Ravens WR Marlon Brown is expected to be used as a prime red zone target.

Brown posted solid numbers during his rookie campaign and will look to build on his success in 2014. Once Steve Smith is out of the picture, Brown should slide into a starting role for the Ravens.

Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to run mostly underneath routes this season from the outside receiver and slot positions.

Smith is getting up there in age, but should still be relatively productive. He should start for Baltimore, but don't expect a ton of huge plays. With the news that he'll be running underneath routes most of the time, his value in PPR leagues should see a slight uptick.

Arthur Brown is competing with rookie first-round draft pick C.J. Mosley for the starting job at weak-side inside linebacker.

There is a competition so that Mosley can show that he deserves the role. While Brown has a shot at the role, Mosley is considered the favorite and should be starting for the Ravens week one.

Ray Rice has visited the league office in the wake of the resolution of assault charges involving the woman who would become his wife.  Eventually, discipline will be imposed, most likely in the form of a suspension.

It is likely that a multi-game suspension is in Rice's future. The fact that this is his first major off-the-field incident suggests the the suspension will not be as severe as it may be for others, but Rice will likely still be out for a few (or more) games to begin the season.
