Ravens Activate CB Maurice Canady

Maurice Canady will be returning from the injured reserve for the second consecutive season. Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports (via Twitter) that the Ravens have activated the cornerback. To make room on the roster, the team has waived offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu.

Canady, a 2016 sixth-round pick out of Virginia, has had a tough time staying healthy during his professional career. In three seasons, the 24-year-old has appeared in only 13 games, including one game this season. He suffered a knee injury during the 2017 offseason, but he was ultimately activated from the IR in early November. He proceeded to appear in eight games that season, compiling 27 tackles and one pass defended. Baltimore will surely be hoping for similar production this time around.

Canady injured his thigh in mid-September, forcing him to sit out more than two months. He’ll be joining a cornerback bench grouping that already includes Tavon Young, Marlon HumphreyAnthony Averett, and Cyrus Jones.

After being released by the Bears in early September, Grasu subsequently caught on with the Ravens. The 27-year-old only appeared in three games during his stint with Baltimore, but he did start 12 games during his two seasons in Chicago. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport tweets that the lineman could end up getting claimed on waivers by a team that needs some interior offensive linemen depth.

Ravens Work Out Three Offensive Linemen

The Ravens are auditioning a trio of offensive lineman today. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport tweets that the team is hosting Wesley Johnson, Hroniss Grasu, Jordan Morgan on work outs.

The Ravens’ offensive line allowed four sacks to the Bengals on Thursday night, and the running game was only able to compile 66 yards on 22 caries (good for a three-yard average). The three players working out for Baltimore today either play center or guard, meaning the team is seemingly looking for some depth and reinforcement behind starters Alex LewisMatt Skura, and Marshal Yanda. Jermaine Eluemunor, who made the 2017 All-Rookie team, and rookie sixth-rounder Bradley Bozeman round out the team’s interior-line depth.

Johnson, 27, has the most experience among the auditionees, as he appeared in 31 games (23 starts) with the Jets over the past two seasons. The 2014 fifth-round pick out of Vanderbilt joined the Lions earlier this offseason, but he was released by the team at the end of the preseason. Since then, Johnson had a workout with the Vikings.

Grasu had spent his entire three-year career with the Bears before being released by the team earlier this month. The 27-year-old started 12 of his 14 career games, but injuries have limited him throughout his career (he spent the entire 2016 campaign on the injured reserve).

Morgan is the only offensive guard in the group, and he also previously spent time with the Bears. The 2017 fifth-round pick spent his entire rookie campaign on the injured reserve, and he was released by the organization earlier this month.
