Ravens OG Jah Reid (toe) is participating in OTAs.
Reid landed on injured reserve during the playoffs, and was promptly Wally Pipped by Kelechi Osemele, who is now locked in as the Ravens' left guard. Reid should serve as the Ravens' top reserve interior lineman this season.
Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb (torn ACL) is taking part in individual drills in OTAs.
Webb is backpedaling and cutting without issue, but "clearly not full speed." Both Webb and coach John Harbaugh have guaranteed he'll be ready for camp, but it sounds like he still has a little ways to go in his rehab. Webb could begin camp on the active/PUP list, but all signs still point toward readiness for Week 1.
Ravens restricted free agent Ed Dickson has signed an offseason participation agreement to participate in OTAs.
It's a sign Dickson will soon ink his tender, or perhaps sign off on a multi-year deal. Assistant GM Eric DeCosta recently singled out Dickson as a player the Ravens expect to "take a step forward this season." Dickson has yet to be a consistent fantasy threat in his three-year career, and that won't change in 2013.
Ravens second-round LB Arthur Brown is recovering from sports-hernia surgery, and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.
It means Brown should miss next month's minicamp, and is questionable for the start of training camp. It's a minor blow to the Ravens' inside linebacker corps on the heels of Rolando McClain's retirement as they look to replace Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe. The good news is, Brown is in no danger of missing regular-season games, and should get plenty of reps in the preseason. He's just losing some helpful development time. Brown is still going to start as a rookie.
Ravens signed fourth-round OLB John Simon to a four-year contract.
Simon, a defensive end at Ohio State, will make the transition to stand-up edge rusher with the Ravens. He's already drawn comparisons to ex-Raven Jarret Johnson, but expect him to focus on special teams as a rookie.
The Packers' team doctors reportedly wouldn't sign off on Ravens DE Chris Canty's (knee) physical when he paid the team a free-agent visit in March.
Canty missed the first six games of 2012 after undergoing offseason knee surgery, and then was diagnosed with a sprained MCL in December. The Ravens' physicians voiced no concerns with the knee, and it doesn't matter much now. Canty might be held back in OTAs, but he'll be fine for training camp.
Ravens DE/OLB Michael McAdoo says he's "very comfortable" coming off of last year's Achilles' surgery.
A 2011 undrafted free agent, McAdoo has spent his entire NFL career on injured reserve. Suspended for his final year at North Carolina, he hasn't played a competitive down in over three years. He knows he's a roster long-shot. "I just feel like I can do my thing now, move around, McAdoo said. "My goal is to open up some eyes and let them know this is what they really brought me in for."
