Baltimore's top offensive lineman is returning to the field for the first time since suffering a fractured ankle early in the 2017 season.
"He's starting to work his way in. That's a huge plus for us," coach John Harbaugh said. "We're excited about that. I don't expect him to play in this game [Thursday against Rams], but we'll just start bringing him along."
For all of the acclaim over general manager Ozzie Newsome's offseason overhaul, Yanda's return represents the biggest boon for a Baltimore offense that struggled to move the chains with any degree of consistency in 2017.
