Pass rusher Elvis Dumervil came off the physically unable to perform list Monday, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Monday marks his first practice of the preseason after foot surgery derailed his offseason plans.
Defensive coordinator Dean Pees has done wonders with the tandem of Dumervil and Terrell Suggs when the pair is healthy -- a rarity of late. If the Ravens have any hope of returning to the playoffs -- or even staying afloat in a stacked AFC North -- they will need 16 games from both of their sack artists.
The last year both Suggs and Dumervil were healthy, they combined for 29 sacks -- the most lethal duo in the NFL before a torn Achilles tendon sidelined Suggs for the 2015 season. Feeling the weight of an increased workload, Dumervil went under the knife to repair a lingering foot issue this offseason.
Here are the other injuries we've been monitoring Monday:
"He practiced today. He looked good. He had a shoulder deal. He's ready to play and will be back this week," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said.
