The Baltimore Ravens have been plagued with a few injuries over the past few weeks. From a season-ending injury to tight end Dennis Pitta, to players only missing a day of practice, and everything in between. With Week 1 just over two weeks away, the Ravens have to get their starting lineup set. But which players battling injuries can the team expect to be on the field in Denver for the season opener on September 5th? Ed Dickson (Photo credit: Gail Burton/AP Photo) While Dennis Pitta is unlikely to be back this season after suffering from a dislocated hip in training camp a few weeks ago, tight end Ed Dickson will be back this season. Dickson sustained a slight hamstring tear in practice on August 3rd. We won’t see Dickson on the field on Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers, but Dickson did return to practice today. Dickson worked on individual exercises and is working his way back to practicing at full speed. When asked about whether or not he would be back on the field for the Ravens’ season opener, he could not give a definite answer. “ I couldn’t say. I can’t say I’m going to be able to go. I can’t say I’m not going to be able to go. I just know I’m trying my hardest to get out there Week 1.” The Ravens can expect to see the return of Marshal Yanda to round out the team’s solid offensive line. Yanda suffered from a shoulder injury during the Super Bowl and has been recovering since. According to head coach John Harbaugh, Yanda is looking good and getting back into football mode. There’s a chance that Ravens fans could see Yanda in Thursday night’s game against Carolina. Another player that could be suited up for the game is cornerback Lardarius Webb. Webb has been recovering from a season-ending ACL tear from last October. The cornerback had been limited in practice for a while, but has recently stepped up and shown progress toward recovery. Regardless of whether or not Webb plays in this week’s preseason game, he should be ready to go by Week 1 in Denver.
