  • Ravens' David Ojabo: Returns to practice

    Ojabo (undisclosed) is practicing Monday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

    Ojabo didn't practice last week with an undisclosed injury, but it looks like he's now good to go for Week 1. The 2022 second-round pick appeared in just two games as a rookie due to an Achilles tear, and the Ravens may simply be taking a cautious approach to his health. Ojabo could handle an immediate starting role during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Texans.

  • Ravens' David Ojabo: Dealing with injury

    Ojabo (undisclosed) has not practiced this week, Jamison Hensley of reports.

    Ojabo is doing "okay," according to head coach John Harbaugh, who downplayed the second-year pro's absence. The Michigan product missed all but two games last season due to recovering from an Achilles tear, although there's no reason to believe this is related. The 23-year-old is expected to be available Week 1 against the Texans.

  • Ravens' David Ojabo: Feels better than pre-Achilles tear

    Ojabo said Wednesday that he's added 5-to-10 pounds of muscle this offseason and currently feels "more explosive" than he did before his Achilles tear in March 2022, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official website reports.

    Ojabo was widely projected as a first-round pick prior to the injury at his pro day last March and went 45th overall even with no expectation of rookie-year contributions. The linebacker made his NFL debut nine months after the injury but played only 23 defensive snaps in three appearances (including playoffs) over Baltimore's final five games. Ojabo did have a strip-sack on one of those snaps, Week 18 at Cincinnati, and he'll have every chance to earn a lot of playing time in 2023 after the Ravens relied on 30-something OLBs Justin Houston and Jason Pierre-Paul (both free agents as of mid-May) for 923 combined snaps last year. Odafe Oweh and Tyus Bowser are Baltimore's returning edge rushers with significant NFL experience, but the former has only eight sacks in 32 career games (1,249 snaps) and the latter 19.5 in 89 (2,443 snaps). In addition to his pass-rushing upside, Ojabo is plenty big enough to handle early down snaps, especially if he's now up to around 255-260 pounds (he weighed 250 at the 2022 Combine).

  • Ravens' David Ojabo: Available Saturday

    Ojabo is active for Saturday's game at the Browns, Jamison Hensley of reports.

    After missing the first 13 games of the season recovering from an Achilles tear he sustained all the way back in March, Ojabo appears to be in line to make his NFL debut in Week 15. The rookie second-rounder will likely be eased into action in a rotational role, at least to start.

  • Ravens' David Ojabo: Remains sidelined

    Ojabo (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Jaguars.

    Ojabo will have to wait another week to make his NFL debut. The rookie has been slowly brought back from his Achilles tear, as the team continues to ramp up his workload in practice each week. He'll work to earn the chance to debut Week 13 against the Broncos.
