by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (8/14/14) Ravens cornerback Asa Jackson missed his fourth straight practice because of an ankle injury, according to ESPN. His status remains up in the air for the team's second preseason game on Saturday against the Cowboys.
Jackson has been impressive in training camp, and he picked off a pass in the first preseason game against the 49ers. Brown has been filling in for starting corner Lardarius Webb, who has missed time due to a back injury, but seems likely to open the season as a reserve at this point.
Daryl Smith sits out preseason opener
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (8/8/14) Ravens linebacker Daryl Smith was unable to play in the team's first preseason game against the 49ers Thursday, as he continues to fight a groin injury.

All of the Ravens' moves last offseason weren't enough to help the unit emerge in Fantasy. They ranked toward the bottom of the league in Fantasy points despite notching 40 sacks and 16 interceptions and holding opponents to 335.5 yards per game on average. That was because they totaled one touchdown on special teams and one on defense, keeping their totals pretty low. The draft brought in some fresh replacements headlined by linebacker C.J. Mosley, defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan and safety Terrence Brooks, but otherwise there weren't many major changes. That means they'll count on a number of getting-up-there-in-age veterans to deliver in the front seven: Haloti Ngata and Elvis Dumervil will be 30, Terrell Suggs and Chris Canty will be 31 and Daryl Smith will be 32. They also begin the year playing against the Bengals and Steelers. We'd be careful committing to the Ravens DST -- they're worth a pick in the final round of your draft, if at all.
