Had Dumervil remained on the PUP list for Week 1, he would have been required to sit out for at least six weeks. Dumervil was expected back as his summer surgery was deemed a “preventative procedure” by coach John Harbaugh, but he has only just been cleared to practice. The Ravens are breathing a sigh of relief as they have been able to pull both Dumervil and fellow veteran linebacker Terrell Suggs off of PUP.

In 2016, the Louisville product appeared in and started all 16 regular season games, recording 48 tackles and 6 sacks, earning his fifth Pro Bowl appearance. In 2014, Dumervil exploded for 17 sacks, matching a career high and earning his second career First-Team All-Pro selection.
