The NFL has reinstated Ravens rookie cornerback Asa Jackson following his four-game suspension without pay for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.
The Ravens were given a roster exemption for Jackson through Jan. 14, so they don't have to make a transaction until then unless they want to activate the fifth-round draft pick now.
The suspension stemmed from unauthorized usage of Adderall, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that the Baltimore Ravens are currently sitting $5 million over next season’s salary cap, which means that they’ll need to shed some salary before the start of the next league year.
Schefter adds that Ray Lewis retiring will eliminate $3.8 million from their cap, but what is really going to complicate things further is the fact that their QB Joe...
Last Wednesday when Baltimore Ravens All Pro linebacker Ray Lewis announced to the media that this season would be his 'last ride' everyone was taken by storm. Sure, Lewis is 37, and this was probably going to be his last season anyway, but no one expected the news. It had seemed that the longevity of his career would continue. No one outdoes Father Time however, and Lewis...
After yesterday’s win over the Colts, Ravens safety Ed Reed didn’t care to speculate on his future with his contract expiring at the end of this season.“I’m not thinking about that right now,” Reed said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I’m football. I’m completing this year, and like I always tell you, I assess it every year. I assess myself every year physically. A guy in...
Baltimore halfback Ray Rice rushed for 70 yards and lost two fumbles Sunday against the Colts.Fantasy Spin:What's equally alarming is that Bernard Pierce saw almost as many carries as Rice did on Sunday (13 for Pierce, 15 for Rice). Could the Ravens be headed for a running back by committee system? Rice's fantasy owners better hope not.
As evidenced by pretty much anything that can be polled these days (which is pretty much everything), America is a nation that disagrees. From politics to deciding college football champions, this country qualifies performance by inventing ideas, strategies and formulas so murky that the inventor himself can rarely explain it the same way twice. Simply put, the way we decide who...
Arguably one of the best players in the league, Ed Reed, is not considering retirement even though his longtime teammate, Ray Lewis played his last home game with the Ravens on Sunday afternoon.
Ed Reed is in the final year of his contract with the Baltimore Ravens but, is not ready to call it quits just yet.
“I’m football. I’m completing this year, and like I always tell...
Ray Lewis announced prior to the Baltimore Ravens’ playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts last weekend that he would be retiring, so most people enjoyed seeing him do his trademark dance one last time. One person who didn’t find it too amusing, though, was Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne.
Wayne found it disrespectful that Lewis did his typical pregame dance, and then came...
The Baltimore Ravens have the home field advantage going into today’s game as they take on the Indianapolis Colts at M & T Bank Stadium.

With ILB Ray Lewis expected to retire at seasons end and with "Will" ILB Dannell Ellerbe an unrestricted free agent, the Ravens could have a considerably different look at inside linebacker next season.
Pro Football Weekly hears that Ellerbe has been a pleasant surprise this season, but theyre also told that theres no guarantee he will be back, with the quality...
The Ravens’ defense has played well with Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata and Ed Reed all playing together for the first time this season. However, they’ve gotten little help from the offense.
Ray Rice fumbled in the red zone on the Ravens first possession. That ended a promising drive that began at their own 48-yard line.
The Colts returned the favor when Andrew Luck coughed...

Joe Flacco keeps throwing the ball down the field. He also keeps completing the deep balls. Flacco found Anquan Boldin 46 yards downfield. Boldin has three catches for 106 yards on the day.
Flacco then hit tight end Dennis Pitta for a 20-yard touchdown for a 17-6 lead.
The defense is relentless in pressuring Andrew Luck. We’re halfway through the third quarter.

The final score might read as a blowout win for the playoff savy Baltimore Ravens over the young, upstart Indianapolis Colts, but this game was far from that.Both teams provided plenty of plays and miscues that will be talked about for days.
